What is the set up of the surf lodge?

The surf lodge is a two storey villa with a spacious terrace on the first floor and a garden and BBQ accessible for guests (all of whom there can be maximum sixteen which ensures the house remains rather chilled out. It's deffo not a surfcamp with 30+ people who are still young enough to be able to party every night). The house itself is spacious and cosy. What our guests like a lot about the surf lodge is the number of places where you can be social and always hang out with someone like the lounge or terrace as well as places where you can just hide away with your partner in crime and enjoy the peaceful set up of this place.

What if I want to rent out a surf board and a wetsuit?

Our friends at NaOnda Surf School have a wide variety of rental boards from longboards, funboards and softies to performance shortboards as well as good warm wetsuits. Let us know what you need and we'll arrange and book it for you. No worries.

Is Ericeira fun if you don't count surfing?

They often call Ericeira “a small fishing village” while in fact it's a small town of roughly 10.000 inhabitants with buzzing taverns, tapas bars, wine bars with live music, seafood restaurants and cafés downtown. Where btw if you're keen you can dance all night. Easy. The whole centre of town is in fact the old fishing village with a very unique architecture all white and blue and a very pleasant vibe. Just strolling through this historical part of Ericeira to the Fishermen's Beach at sunset for the first time is a memory you'll never forget. Very nice indeed.

I want to learn to surf. How does it work with surf lessons?

Our friends at NaOnda Surf School - the longest running surf school in town - will teach you to surf. There's a good chance you'll be surfing green waves with the help of instructors within a couple of lessons. They know what they're doing and they're doing it well. Let us know what you need and we'll plan your surfing experience with you and arrange and book it for you. And you don't need any gear. Boards and wetsuits are part of the deal. No worries.

How do I get around when I stay at the surf lodge?

There's a beach bus stop 5min walk down the road. It's not just some normal boring bus though. Ericeira Beach Bus is a “panoramatic mini-bus for tourists” which covers the coast from Foz do Lizandro (the surf lodge is located on a small hill above this sand-bottom beachbreak) through the town centre to Ribeira d'Ilhas, the famous reef point break with numerous stops in between. The sweet deal is that they have a trailer for surfboards so this is how you can easily get around Ericeira's surf spots when you don't have a car. And the best for last - one trip with the beach bus costs just € 1.

Of course there's taxis available 24/7. We'll be happy to give you a tip who to call.

Last but not least - the surf lodge has a great location as it is outside city center (which results in no noise or traffic except for an occasional barking dog or a passing car) and is walking distance to Foz do Lizandro, the most favourite beach break in Ericeira, and also a little bit longer but still easy walking distance to town. Including amazing views at the Atlantic and the town itself.
