The
Experience

A great spot for this natty place, an easy walk to the centre of town or a nearby leafy park and with superb views over Porto and the river Douro. Each bedroom is uniquely themed and named after a famous avant-garde mover and shaker; some are larger than others but all have sleek lines, good lighting, top quality linen, brand new mattresses and of course a link to each eponymous celebrity from the world of art, literature or science. Bathrooms are gleaming with marble and mirrors – some have that view; towels are thick. You can lounge on the terraces, cool off in the pool, visit their own spa and eat in their own restaurant Digby (both open to members of the public too) where Portuguese food is served with aplomb. Don’t forget to make the most of Porto: towers, churches, museums and a wonderful cathedral, the cobbled streets of Ribeira with their colourful houses and lines of laundry, the buzzing bars, restaurants and shops. Hop aboard a boat to explore the Douro valley from the water, a short drive will take you to great surfing beaches and you can learn all about – and taste – delicious port.

Location

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Francisco Lorite

  • Torel Avantgarde is a true Portuguese hotel, inspired by four artists from Porto, two Portuguese designers, with all furniture coming from Portugal. The themes of art and design are omnipresent, and our "Avant-Garden" quickly became our signature space.
  • "The Guardian" recommends Torel Avantgarde as the number 1 of 20 hotels to explore in 2018.
  • Torel Avantgarde is located only a five-minutes walk to the city center. Its setting between Clerigos tower and Palacio de Cristal is ideal to explore the nearby art district of Rua Miguel Bombarda with its many galleries and quirky shops.
  • Torel Avantgarde offers a stunning view over the Douro river from its terraces and rooms.
  • Our "Balsamea" Spa is designed with real moss on the walls to give a truly natural feel to your relaxation.
  • Our on-site restaurant "Digby" offers contemporary Portuguese cuisine with a twist. Inspired by the inventor of the wine bottle, Sir Kenelm Digby, it features wine bottles throughout the restaurant.
