Why are we in Ericeira?

Ericeira, picturesquely draped across sandstone cliffs above the blue atlantic, sunny, whitewashed walls, the portuguese town welcomes visitors from all over the world to its narrow streets and seafood restaurants, its spectacular ocean vistas and the feeling of being on holiday all year round.

Recognised as one of the world’s surfing reserves and the only one in Europe since 2011 many competitions and profesional surfers are visiting this surf mecca and called it home.

Its a perfect fusion of Portuguese heritage with an relaxed surfing ambiance with a lively and buzzing summer, amazing nightlife, and quieter winters.

We think that the environment where we live defines us somehow, this place has become our loving home, whether you stay with us for a week or a month, we hope that this place will inspire you and make you feel free.


Welcome to the portuguese surf meca

Meet the people behind Sunago house


David Buan

Founder & CEO

Prior to Co found Sunago, David was an award-winning video games artist. He was also a self-taught developer in architectural rendering, virtual reality and real-time computer graphics.
He worked on some of the best selling video games of all time like the "Grand Theft Auto" series.

Few years later then decided to radically change his career and his life. He found himself on the road for several years being a surf instructor and organizing surf camps, sharing his passion with boundless energy.

One of his dreams was to create a place where people from all over the world would meet and share their knowledge, the "living together" would be honored, like a home away from home.

It was then that the creation of Sunago became obvious with the emergence of the coliving & coworking movement.

Born in the south of France, he still lives in Europe, between ocean and mountains.


For several years now Ericeira has been one of the official stages of the world surfing league, where prestigious competitors defend their world titles on the mythical waves of Ribeira d'ilhas.

It's also in Ericeira, that the Portuguese surf film festival, has been organized for several consecutive years where you find the screening of films made in Portugal but also international often in world premiere.


Ericeira has been registered as a world surfing reserve since 2011, and the very first one in Europe. Surf spots are therefore protected to allow surfers from all over the world to discover this gem.



Life evolves, communication, science, and medicine, but what about our work habits and our way of housing?


Stress, traffic jams, pollution, loneliness, and moody landlords. Life should be an adventure, not a showdown. Why not remove all these constraints? In an increasingly complex world, we had to simplify this equation.


Imagine booking your accommodation in three clicks without dozens of papers to sign.
Imagine, arriving at a traditional house where everyone welcomes you as if you've been friends forever.

Imagine waking up to the sound of birds singing. With a fresh coffee in hand, you cross the garden barefoot to your community workspace.

Is this an illusion? A dream?

At Sunago we have built this dream. Your intimacy is respected within a community, we celebrate living together, and we grow to learn.

A place to work together, support each other, share knowledge, and broaden one's vision.


Sunago is for all those who believe that our homes and our work must take a step into the future.

Get out of the box. Enter your new home. You are welcome at Sunago.

"The freedom of man consists in never doing what he does not want."
Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1777)
