"Warm, cozy and friendly atmosphere "

It was so nice, warm and friendly place! Francisco is a very friendly person. And most of the evenings he cooked so delicious portuguese dishes for dinner. And everyone got together over the table to eat, drink something, talk and joke. It was such a nice atmosphere!

The villa is cute and colorful too, with hammoks and oceanside views. Also the villa is pretty close to the ocean and the beach, which is not easy to find for a surfcamp - mostly I saw that they are pretty far. So if someone didn't go surfing or on free and relax days - it was possible to get to the closest beach in 5 minutes. And it is situated in the middle of small town, so shops, cafes and restaurants are nearby too, even an ice-cream factory!

"Great experience!"

The accommodations with Francisco were fantastic. The house and the neighborhood are beautiful. Just a short walk to the beach and some nice restaurants, although we didn't experience much of that because Francisco cooked us some delicious meals all but one night.

The surfing instruction was very hands on and beneficial. All of the instructors had a great attitude and expertise. My skills improved dramatically from day one. All of the beaches were gorgeous and the overall setting was really nice.

"Awesome surfcamp & guesthouse with lovely hosts"

I had the best time in the Jho'la surfcamp. The hosts are wonderful people who do their very best to give you the real Portugese / surf experience. I love the vibe in the guesthouse and I've met only lovely people. I really enjoyed the dinners we had together. The food is absolutely amazing and homemade. The combination of surfing and yoga is great if you are looking for an active holiday. Of course there is also plenty of free time to relax in the hammocks or to visit the nice beaches in the region. Thankyou so much for this experience and I'll see you soon!

"A fantastic and refreshing experience "

Wow—I had such a wonderful time. Francisco was an incredible host and his food is probably the best I have had in Portugal! The yoga was really relaxing and Andrea tailored the sessions very thoughtfully depending on how I was feeling post-surf. The surf school was excellent and the teachers were very dedicated and knowledgeable. Lovely guests, lovely place, fantastic beaches and great memories.

"Feelings rare to find"

Great atmosphere and hospitality, perfect organization for the surf lessons and wonderful surf house place, Luz is really pretty near the beach and with some bars restaurants and shops. You don’t need a car to move.

Francisco is really good in cooking and every night you have the possibility to taste Portuguese specialities.

Surf school is good too.

Yoga teacher (Ana) is a wonderful woman with a lot of experience and great communication skills. Love her!!!

"Home is where the heart is"

The warmhearted hosts at the SurfCamp left me feeling like I have a second home now away from home. The welcoming and relaxed atmosphere, the food, the house and the fellow guests left me and my daughter with a heart filled with love and joy. The yoga practice was so rejuvenating that I feel like I have had months of rest and joy. I left the house being thankful for all the wonderful people and gifts of the universe.

Die Yogastunden waren wunderbar und individuell abgestimmt. Francisco ist ein ausgezeichneter Koch und ein angenehmer Host.
