If you're feeling the desire to escape the Winter weather, or maybe you're looking for that perfect gift, booking to stay in the beautiful surf town of Ericeira, Portugal in 2014 is for you.
Ericeira is only 40 minutes drive from Lisbon, so it is easy to fly there plus there's always the added bonus of some retail therapy day trips for when you're not surfing.  The town itself is infamous as a great surf spot. With miles upon miles of world class surfing beaches around the town, it is obvious why Ericeira is one of only three protected world surf reserves in existence.  We love the town so much we have picked out our favourite accommodations for you to get inspired by... take a look, and get booking:
  • 1- Anna Margarida Villas

If you're looking to really treat yourself, stay at the Anna Margarida Villas. The twelve stunning villas are all uniquely designed with influences from Portuguese architecture and Barcelona's Gaudi. Even better is that they are located on Matadouro surf beach which is ideal for beginner and improver surfers, and only 800 metres from the town centre.
  • 2- Helios Beach Houses

If you want a view then the Helios Beach Houses are perfect. Located on Foz do Lizandro surf beach, you have the ocean one way, and Lizandro Valley the other. So you and your party can wake up everyday to a lot of surf and nature. There are three beach houses, which can sleep up to four people, so ideal for a family or small groups. 
  • 3- Ecosound Ecolodges

Think beautiful wooden lodges, an ecological swimming pool, BBQs and even yoga classes in summer. If the Ecolodges sound relaxed, they are. They are ideally located only 300 metres from the town centre, 600 metres from a swimming beach, and about 2 kilometres from surfing beaches. The lodges can sleep up to 5 people, so ideal for families, groups, or even couples.
