Casa da Companhia, the first hotel developed by Mercan Properties in Portugal, is officially branded under the Vignette Collection Trademark, by IHG Hotels & Resorts.

Vignette Collection Trademark is a family of one-of-a-kind, having exclusive hotels curated for guests seeking rich and varied stay experiences in some of the most sought-after urban and resort locations, for both leisure and business travelers. This collection of hotels weave responsibility, community, and locality together, and exist to make a positive impact in every way possible.

Casa da Companhia, Vignette Collection, where uniqueness finds elegance. This hotel presents timeless designs and modern facilities in one of the city’s most emblematic houses, next to the main attractions.

Besides the architectural value of the building, there is a huge charisma in this hotel by the fact that it has served, between 1761 and 1960, as Real Companhia Velha´s headquarters- the oldest wine company in Portugal, having celebrated 265 years of existence and uninterrupted activity.

The importance of this chartered Company was reflected by the valuable services to the community, being the most relevant, the demarcation of the Douro region – the oldest wine appellation in the world. Porto wine got its name from the city from where it was exported, and Casa da Companhia, Vignette Collection is preserving and perpetuating a significant part of this fascinating history so intimately linked to this wonderful city, as we can witness in the interiors of this historic building that have been restored from its original 18th century design.

We believe that this is a valuable step for a worldwide recognition of this charming 5-star boutique hotel, located in the heart of the city of Porto, resulting from a rehabilitation of an historic building in a classified UNESCO World Heritage area.

We would be pleased to welcome you to Casa da Companhia, Vignette Collection in the near future, therefore we invite you to make your reservation through the hotel's new and renovated website: www.casadacompanhia.com
