The beach of Furadouro is a few kilometer from the lovely, traditional town of Ovar, a town mostly known for a delicacy called Pão de ló and its amazing antique tiled facades just 40km from Porto`s city center. The Furadouro boutique hotel was built from the ground by its current owners in a perfect seaside location in front of one of the nicest and longest beaches in the area, the beach of Furadouro.
The Furadouro boutique beach spa hotel, Ovar is a unique hotel with a unique location based on the concept of ecological tourism that does not jeopardize luxury or modern expectations but rather emphasizes luxury as the fundamental result of a natural and healthy environment that does not need to collide with nature.
During daylight hours the halls, bedrooms and spa are lite with natural light, going from the principal that natural light is healthier and sustainable as a source of energy, a concept well established in Asia but not yet much practiced in our Western society. Portuguese light is strong and in traditional architecture it is mostly blocked from entering indoors however the architecture of the hotel has allowed for the filtering of its best aspects creating a peaceful and pleasant atmosphere throughout the entire hotel.
At night the light and water heating systems are supported by solar panels which have gathered energy during the daylight hours, all appliances used in the hotel are in the A category for energy consumption, taps and flow systems are regularized to avoid water waste and hazardous substances used in the cleaning of the hotel are avoided or replaced with Eco friendly alternatives.
