AURIOS is a project with unique characteristics, an urban retreat in a luxurious country atmosphere for a sophisticated and cosmopolitan lifestyle.
In the heart of the vibrant city of Porto, AURIOS displays a current vision of the relationship between architecture and nature, with the buildings hidden in the landscape.
AURIOS proposes a synergy in which the exterior space is part of the dwelling and the interior spaces enjoy the presence of the open air and the open sky. Constructions exulting with natural light, connected to the garden and the Douro landscape.
Prices from 1,735,000€
AURIOS has 48 units facing the river, which is where the great houses of Oporto traditionally turn. There are 26 villas and 22 flats designed to the highest standards of quality.
The slope of the terrain allows each building to have different elevations, giving two very different perspectives and also helping to preserve the privacy of the residents.
Sport and health come together with comfort and style for the well-being of AURIOS residents. The development has a sports pavilion, paddle tennis court, gym with a view over the Douro, swimming pool with sun loungers, sauna, Turkish bath and indoor and outdoor spaces for relaxing and socialising.
Aurios has 26 units arranged in 3 lines next to the Douro River.
With areas of 300 to 350 m2, the villas blend into the landscape, taking advantage of the orography to offer views in absolute privacy.

On the banks of the River Douro, in Quinta da China, one of the oldest and most charismatic country estates in Porto, AURIOS is born, a unique development that combines nature and sophistication.
In this eastern part of Porto, located just two kilometres from the D. Luís I Bridge and the bustle of the Ribeira, the granite and narrow streets that give shape and texture to the historic centre, a World Heritage Site, are transformed into a green island of open spaces and wooded areas, where you can still find vegetable gardens and small cultivated fields.
Nearby Aureos will be the new bridge over the Douro, which will connect the riverside promenade of Oporto to Vila Nova de Gaia, allowing you to cross the river on foot or by bike, and inviting you to enjoy the natural scenery that beckons on both banks.

The premise of the entire project is its energy and environmental sustainability. In addition to the landscaping and green spaces with native vegetation, there is a strong commitment to the use of renewable energy and the careful implementation of efficiency measures, passive and active, which gives AURIOS the high level of energy certification.
The combined systems will make it possible to reduce the environmental impact, but also to minimise the residents' consumption of electricity and water.
Energy saving is also promoted in interior and exterior lighting solutions, without renouncing comfort and safety.
Traditional natural and ecologically sustainable materials, such as cork and granite, and others of high durability and low environmental impact, such as zinc, optimise comfort, integrating the development into the landscape and minimising AURIOS' ecological footprint.
