The villa is surrounded by a big garden with terraces to lounge on and a swimming pool where you can enjoy the sea view and relax all day long. Every room has a private bathroom and some have private balconies with sea views, with a roomy rain shower and typically Portuguese tiles on the floor. The bedrooms are light, offering a lot of privacy and the beds are king-sized (180 centimeters wide) so you can have the best night's sleep.

No yoga and/or SUP experience required for any of these SUP yoga classes. M&M Stand Up Paddling is there to guide you through the class.
During this holiday, you will enjoy one wine tasting at a local winery.
Your program will be held in Ericeira, Portugal, the perfect place for your surf holiday. Ericeira is the gem on the Atlantic, the only World Surfing Reserve in Europe, the typical Portuguese fishing village, that is now rapidly becoming the surfing hotspot of Portugal. Since 2011, the beautiful coastline is officially protected as a surfing reserve. This status, together with the ‘old world charm’ of the town, makes Ericeira a perfect holiday destination for lovers of the Portuguese culture, seafood, and good waves.
The coast is littered with golden sand beaches, stunning cliffs, and great waves for everyone; beginners, intermediates, and advanced surfers. Next to the great surf, the town of Ericeira is a most pleasant place to stay. You’ll find tiny blue and white houses, small cobblestone streets, sunny terraces, and friendly people. All a stone’s throw away from the beautiful city of Lisbon, Sintra, and Cascais. What makes the Ericeira coastline so special is its uniqueness; there is a very high density of high-quality waves in only a couple of kilometers. You’ll find gentle waves that break on the sand for beginners as well as extreme reef breaks for experienced surfers.
This holiday includes a healthy breakfast every morning. Food is also very affordable in Portugal, you can have a good lunch or dinner for 15 EUR. Ericeira has enough restaurants and bars where you can hang out at night and have dinner and drinks. Olá Onda Guesthouse Ericeira van tips you on the best spots to go.
