Ericeira, Portugal.

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.
