My boyfriend booked a week here just after we could enter Portugal again after the lockdown. The best decision ever! Although it was quiet at the surfhouse, the atmosphere was amazing! Steve, Susie and Marisa made us feel extremely welcome and at home. We much appreciate how they did their utmost best to create a relaxed and fun experience for us, both with surfing as well as in the surf house. They made the whole house and trip to the beach corona-proof, our private bathrooms were cleaned every day, everywhere in the house there were hand sanitisers and in the car we were wearing masks. Everyone felt the responsibility to make it a save environment.

Great location, friendly & helpful staff, clean & tidy. Definitely worth the money! The surf lessons were great and I personally progressed a lot as a beginner. Teachers were very professional and I felt very safe in the water. Yoga studio was great as well and had really good teachers. During a day off Sintra was easily reachable with a taxi. Ericeira is a nice holiday town with full of good food so during the week we didn’t end up cooking in the camp at all. Also nice vibe even during the low season. Would recommend and and will go again! Cheers!
