 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.

* An extraordinary room category in the most artistic hotel in Porto.

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
