Welcome to our castle
You are the king, we are the castle, that is the motto of Ericeira Surf House. It is the perfect place for surfers who want to combine a peaceful holiday in a quality guesthouse with the best possible surf. Surrounded by a beautiful garden with a big swimming pool and a bar, the guesthouse has different types of spacious bedrooms and multiple bathrooms. You don’t need to share bathrooms if you don’t want to, as there are also ensuite bedrooms available.
To hang around and get to know other guests, there is a big and cozy living room with space to relax or work. There is free Wi-Fi in and around the house. If you feel like cooking your own meals, there is also a fully equipped kitchen available for our guests. The nearest grocery store is just 400 meters from the house.
The guesthouse faces south so the garden and terraces on each floor are sheltered from the dominant and cold north winds. And because of a special micro-climate, it’s always warmer at the house than in town or at the beach. This means that you can fully enjoy the sun all day long, even on the cooler days! From both the garden and the terraces you also have a wonderful view over the countryside with the ocean in the background.
Ericeira Surf House is licensed as Alojamento Local following the Portuguese law and is therefore an official guesthouse that fulfills the legal requirements regarding safety, hygiene, layout and condition of the property.

The guesthouse is located just a few steps south of Ericeira in a small village called Fonte Boa da Brincosa.

No matter how busy Ericeira is during the high season, at the guesthouse you will find peace and tranquility. It’s the perfect place to combine a relaxed holiday with the best possible surf. And if you would like to get cultural, Lisbon, the fairytale town of Sintra and the impressive Palace of Mafra (both UNESCO World Heritage Sites) are easy to reach by car.
