Travelling is as much about the places we discover as it is about the people we meet along the way. To know that you’re welcome wherever you find yourself at, to feel the world is your home, that is the ultimate goal. We are The Independente Collective. An alliance of travellers, adventurers, and pioneers, looking for fresh paths to tread and different boundaries to cross. We aim to provide unique and authentic experiences to each and every one of our guests. Our spaces are designed so that you can feel welcomed and relaxed, and fully enjoy all the city has to offer.

Our cities
and attitude

We believe that the best way to discover a city is to live it. Which is why our properties are located in central, authentic neighbourhoods in Lisbon and Porto and are open to locals and travellers alike. Each property is unique, just like the neighbourhood surrounding it, each an extension of its location with nods to local culture and vibe. Additionally, you can enjoy live music shows by local and international artists, get together and other social events.

We love to share our cities and will gladly tell you about our favourite places to spend an afternoon chatting with friends, to eat a comforting meal or to dance the night away. Just ask any of our team members and they will help you design your own perfect Lisbon or Porto tour. If you’re looking for inspiration, check out 2 and a half day guides to our locations in Príncipe Real and Vila Nova de Gaia.
