Highly recommended! I absolutely loved my stay Laneez Ericeira Surf House! The house is beautiful and homey, and you can never get tired of the amazing waterfront view from the terrace. The location is only a short walk to the main square and town where there are great bars and cafes. I was a solo traveller who quickly felt at home and made the loveliest of friends. Miguel and Mark make sure that you are well taken care of, and I can not wait to come back. Thanks you for everything! See you all next year :)

How were the surf lessons?

     

The surf lessons were great. I was picked up from the surf house and joined a larger group for beginner lessons. There was one instructor for about every 6-7 students. Nuno took great care in looking after the group and is an all around cool guy. The beaches change on a daily basis depending on the tides.

Ericeira is the most beautiful place on Earth, accommodations location is like a main screen to 'live Ericeira TV' you can see the ocean better than from any other spots in Town, as Laneez is located on the top of a hill and apartment I was staying in was on the first floor, stunning experience with a private balcony - beautiful view and also as the balcony was in the corner it created wind shield which in windy September was just perfect. Apartment is spacious can comfortably sleep 3 people. Good value for money. Loads of space, very clean - well looked after. Lovely staff looking after the place and you. Lead lady Lugia so kind and helpful- it makes all difference to have a person like her look after your experience.
Also Mark, one of the owners very polite and caring - I was standing by the biggest window observing waves and surfers from early morning while trying to get breakfast on to the plate, I was so absorbed by the view that before I knew it Mark has moved chairs and table in front of the window - screen so I could eat comfortably and still be able to watch the action outside. Little move like that means a lot, it stayed in my memory now and I will definitely return to experience more of the Laneez kindness.

The whole house is spacious and has very relaxed atmosphere.

Restaurants:
I can recommend Tasca da boa - restaurant with the most amazing fish.
There is quite few bars and a club in town, you will always find a place to enjoy yourself with friends or by yourself.

Beaches are great, instructors phenomenal!
Lessons are good and when it happens and you end up in a smaller group the attention you get is incredible. Jose can explain it all and even calm you down when you in advance panic mode, Joao has the entertaining spirit and brings fun into the sessions while sharing his knowledge. I had most experience with those two instuctors. There was few more instructors and all avaiable with expertise when asked.

Everything about my stay at Laneez was perfect. The location and sea-views were just amazing. I stayed in the Sintra room, which was really nice. The bed was really comfortable and the balcony and shower facilities were excellent. The staff were all so friendly and accommodating. Right from the start I was made to feel right at home. The atmosphere in the shared areas was always so relaxed, ideal for staying in holiday mode.

The town itself was beautiful, full of really nice cafes, bars and restaurants. I particularly enjoyed the Adega Bar, which had a really cool vibe and the beer and service was great. I really enjoyed the sea food everywhere, which was incredibly fresh and delicious.

I would highly recommend visiting Ericeira and when you do, you MUST stay at Laneez!

How were the surf lessons?

     

The surf lessons were highly enjoyable. The teachers were attentive to everybody, even though the classes were quite large, and I really appreciated the advice that I got and felt that I progressed much further than I thought I would. After a few beginner lessons I was advised to try the intermediate. I was hesitant at first but am really glad that I did because I didn't feel out of my depth and caught my best waves by far. It was an incredible experience.

The accommodation was so perfect, lovely house, really friendly staff that put their guests first with lots of invites to evening socialising but not too intrusive if you didn't want to get involved.

the town was great, lovely vibe, lots of bars and restaurants, small enough to walk around but still had a lot to do with all the lovely beaches around. Most restaurants offered incredible seafood, id recommend the octopus at Prim.

How were the surf lessons?

     

the surf lessons were good but i felt there were too many people in the water at one time to really get time with the instructors, the beaches were picturesque but the ripe was extremely strong at times and it was difficult to get out back. the instructors were very aware of people in the water so i felt safe.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

The accommodation was excellent. The bunk beds were clean and comfortable. We stayed in the ten bed dorm, which has ample room and a small sofa area to relax in, with the added bonus of direct access to the communal patio with amazing views over the sea and bay below.

The main hub of Ericeira is just a few hundred meters walk down the road, with plenty of bars, restaurants and shops to choose from and no need for the added cost of taxis. The beach below the surfhouse is a short 5 min walk as well.

Miguel and his team could not have been better hosts, and were very accommodating of a large group of boys on holiday. His restaurant recommendations were spot on and all bookings were made by him for us. He also arranged all necessary transport which was competitively priced and again added to the ease of our stay.

How were the surf lessons?

     

The surf lessons were excellent. We were taken each time to the same beach, a short drive (transport provided, 15-20 mins) down the coast. The initial brief was efficient but thorough and easy to comprehend, and we were out on the water quickly. There was an excellent instructor/student ratio, so at all times we felt safe and looked after, as well as getting regular tips and advice to improve our surfing. The team were all very friendly and good fun to spend the day with. The beach used for lessons has a cafe and toilets and was a nice place to chill out after surfing.

Nice and relaxed place, in every way.
No children there, mostly young people. At least the week we were there.
Since I had my daughter (11) with me, that was a small disappointment.

The town is very nice. Safe, vibrating and with great seafood everywhere. Would recommend people who want a bit more heat in the water to visit Praia do Lizandro, which is connect to the river Lizandro. The river is calm and with a nice temperature. And you can rent a SUP and go paddling on it.

For our bedroom option we shared a bathroom, with quite a few people. That's just fine, but makes my rating a 4. 4 is good.

How were the surf lessons?

     

Very relaxed and enjoyable. They took very good care of my daughter when the current was a bit strong and the waves a bit high. A great experience for the both of us.

Laneez surfhouse is beautiful. It is situated to the south of the town of Ericeira and over looks the coast. The view is spectacular! The house itself is large with a big balcony that gets sun in the afternoon and evening which is perfect for sun bathing and relaxing. The rooms are big, bright and clean.
Ericeira itself is a lovely resort town, not too big and not too touristy. There is a good choice of restaurants and we ate excellent Portuguese food our last night there at a very unpretentious restaurant. The food is good and the wine and beer is cheap! There is an Aldi and Lidl up the road if you prefer to self cater.

How were the surf lessons?

     

The surf instructors were fabulous and were always keeping an eye out in the water. We did not spend too much time 'practising' on the beach but got into the water pretty quickly as they were keen for us to learn by doing and through experience. I took 5 lessons and was pleased with the progress I made. This was my first time ever surfing. We went to Sao Julio every day which is a beautiful sandy beach with good waves. You need to wear a wetsuit in the water though!

Beautiful accomodation with a perfect cliff top location. Outstanding panoramic sea views. Very clean rooms and comfy beds. The house was peaceful and we felt instantly at home. Other guests and staff were super friendly.

How were the surf lessons?

     

Real good value for money.. Great approach to learning with a short safety briefing on the beach and then getting stuck in. My son was eager and progressed quickly. I was nervous but the instructors put me at ease and stayed with me which really helped my confidence. We had a great length of time in the water, there was opportunity to surf twice in the day and the wetsuits and equipment were excellent.

The accommodation was more beautiful than I could've imagined. The terrace is dreamy. Town is lovely with plenty of nice restaurants with fresh seafood or meat - but plenty for everyone. Couple of main bars to hang out at, doesn't really get a party vibe until wednesday's or the weekend, if that is your thing.

How were the surf lessons?

     

Surf instructors were all great people, super friendly, a good laugh and coached to a good standard. Could have been more tailoring towards intermediates but I'm aware that they already know this is a slight issue and they are trying to rectify it - if you're way past the beginner stage i'd recommend coming in autumn/winter and getting more attention and better waves to suit your standard.

We LOVED Laneez! The view was fantastic, the location is perfect and the staff friendly. We booked their jersey room, which had the most incredible bed. Ericeira is perfect for surfing, Laneez own surf-instructors are very experienced and nice people. Ericeira is also perfect for just relaxing. We loved the restaurant directly at the beach serving a bowl of shrimps and white wine for practically nothing. We would definitely go again!

How were the surf lessons?

     

Ericeira is the best place to surf regardless of your skills. The instructors at Laneez were taking very good care of us and took us to different beaches in Ericeira to where the conditions were best to fit our level.

The accommodation at Laneez Surf House was superb. This place is a cross between a hotel and a hostel (luxuries of a hotel with the relaxed and communal atmosphere of a hostel) and I would not hesitate to recommend it to friends, family or anyone looking for accommodation in Ericeira. We stayed in the San Pedro Suite (private en-suite room) which was very well presented with a nice balcony overlooking the sea. All the rooms looked great, even the dorm rooms which were nicely decorated and again, had a great balcony overlooking the sea.

The accommodation is a short walk from the pretty fishing town and we felt immediately at home in the area. There are lots of nice restaurants and bars (Hemingway's is great if you like your Gin and Tonic) and the prices are reasonable, especially in the more local, family run restaurants.

We were visiting out of season, but there was still plenty going on and bars and restaurants were open. We can't wait to go back!

How were the surf lessons?

     

We took surf lessons every day and went in both the beginner and intermediate groups (depending on what the conditions were like). The instructors were fantastic - fun, patient and very experienced and we definitely improved our technique during the week.

Best time to go depends on your level above. July, August & September are the peak tourist months.


This is where you surf Europe's best coast line and let the fun begin.There are over 12 surf breaks along the Ericeira coast, with different options for all standards. With so much choice you'll feel like a kid in a sweet shop! The area was introduced in the Stormriders Surf Guide to Europe with the heading "Enter the Heartland".

World Surf Reserve
In 2011 it was awarded the title of 'World Surf Reserve', there are only 2 other places in the world that share the title: Santa Cruz, US and Manly, Australia.

If it is your first surfing holiday to Ericeira then head straight to Foz do Lizandro and Sao Juliao beaches south of town, they are perfect beginner and intermediate surf spots. Closer to town is Praia do Sul. Another great beginner beach breaks. All best at mid tide but surfable at high and low tide also.

For Intermediates you have the reliable and safe reef break Ribeira d'Ilhas, which host the WSL World qualifying series surf championships every year. And for the more adventurous you have the world class Coxos. That's just naming a few, there are too many surf breaks to mention here!

Don't forget to explore further up the coast - 25 minutes away is Santa Cruz and an hour away is Peniche, home to the World renowned Supertubos and host of the Rip Curl Pro since 2009. 30 minutes south of Lisbon is the Cascais coast with the famous Praia do Guincho surf beach. And when north winds are blowing you can venture further south towards Carcevelos beach and the other surf spots along the Lisbon coast.
