Discover our Executive Superior Simone de Beauvoir:

In our Torel Avantgarde, a boutique hotel in the center of Porto, we pay tribute to Simone de Beauvoir in one of our Executive Superior rooms, with a double bed and balcony.


In this room, the reference to the feminist French writer is materialized through a black box, a symbol of her deep and intellectual thoughts about the injustices of life.

The dark box is complemented by a large desk, which pays homage to her office, while the blue headboard and the red and white carpet represent the colors of the French flag.

Meet the artist Simone de Beauvoir...

Simone Lucie-Ernestine-Marie Bertrand de Beauvoir was a French writer, feminist, activist, intellectual, and philosopher.

Author of the famous phrase “one is not born, but rather becomes, a woman, Simone de Beauvoir was a born thinker, extremely reluctant in the face of the problems that were being felt at the time. The injustices and social weaknesses that she experienced as a woman became her main struggle throughout her life.

Some of her main works:

  • The second sex;
  • She came to stay;
  • The Mandarins;
  • Les temps modernes;
  • Existentialist ethics.

Literary movement: Existentialism.

“If the feminine issue is so absurd, is because the male's arrogance made it "a discussion"". – Simone de Beauvoir
