Dorotea Zafferani

Dorotea is a certified RYT 400 Ashtanga Vinyasa and Rocket yoga teacher and her style is strongly influenced by her background in ballet and contemporary dance. In her classes, Dorotea always encourages her students to listen and to bring stillness in their body and mind. At the same time, she never forgets the need for students to play, fall, and step out of their comfort zone. Dorotea's classes are strong, dynamic, energetic, and always incorporate a strong breathing technique. Expect to sweat, play, invert, and enjoy a long savasana at the end!

    I had a great time there. I loved the people taking care of us and the other guests there. There were nice teachers, too. The dogs of the owner and their babies were lovely to be around. I loved the house, the garden, and the kitchen area. I loved the sitting area, the terrasse, the beds and the rooms. The bathrooms were tidy and nice. Cleaning was done every day. I met awesome people there and I had a god time. Yoga lessons also were very well taught. The best recommendation from my side!

    Moka is an awesome place to stay. As others have said, the staff are excellent and cool people, making you feel at home and the atmosphere is very open with plenty of space to chill. The fact that it is a little bit isolated on a beautiful country hill (maybe one hour walk from the center of Ericeira along very nice coastal path) makes it a really social hostel as people share rides, do events, go surfing etc. all together which involves everyone that is around and dead easy to meet others. The film nights, Italian dinners, barbecues, surf lessons and especially the yoga (be prepared to sweat!) were all excellent. Special thanks to management, can't wait to come back.

    Highlight of my trip to Portugal. Moka is a beautiful house (with big communal terrace, garden and balcony) not too far from the breathtaking coastline of Ericeira (Sao Juliao beach!). Staff are excellent. They all make you feel at home from the start and all is very well organised: From pick up from the bus station, to surf and yoga classes, to Italian dinners. Definitely recommend!

    Staff and guests help to create the right mood. The house is well maintained and clean, there are good coaches during the surf lessons for beginners. The limited number of guests allows you to relax and meet everyone. I suggest to follow also the yoga lessons, especially for people like me who never tried this kind of activity because it is well structured for beginners. Don't lose the welcome dinner with barbecue of fish/meat!!

    Back again in Moka Surfhouse, together with my brother and a friend. The news was all around the house. From this season you can enjoy practicing skate directly in the front yard, and yoga classes have been increased in order to train your body for the surf time. As from the first year the staff is amazing and warm, every guest suddenly feels at home, rooms, kitchen and bathrooms always clean and tidy.

    First trip I've done by myself and the staff made me feel right at home! They are honestly genuinely nice and are concern that you are having fun. I really enjoyed my stay with them not only did I meet wonderful people but also the yoga and surfing experience was incredible. You will not regret it! I plan on coming back.

    Moka Surfhouse hosted us for a lovely week of surf, yoga, and Italian family feel. We really enjoyed our stay, and we would recommend anyone with an interest to try out surfing in cozy, safe, warm, friendly circumstances to go here.

    The surf house is actually a local villa turned into a hostel. It is about 10 minutes drive from Ericeria and the shopping and restaurants there. It has a really friendly atmosphere, where everyone seem to become friends within minutes.

    Hanging out at Moka between yoga and surf is really cozy. If you want to go to town, Moka staff will take you there at a very reasonable price, and there are also taxis, buses, and even bikes for a ride in the beautiful mountains.

    We were lucky to get over own room with four beds. The bath room was in the hall, just next to our room. This was as close to a real hotel room as it gets. Of course, everything is hostel standard, and not at four or five star level. But there is all you need and the place is very clean and well kept.

    The sea and surf itself was amazing. Beautiful beaches, fierce but surfable waves, good, local instructors. As beginners, we could not ask for more. Even more, the Portuguese local people are very polite, helpful and friendly. In Ericeria there is a cozy cafe and restaurant life with some quite good fish and seafood restaurants. The town in itself is quite beautiful and charming.

    In short, Moka Surfhouse is a very, very good spot for active family vacation in beautiful and pleasant surroundings and with excellent hosts and family feel.

    The best holiday ever. Surfing is not just about surfing. It's so much about the people you meet and spend time with as well! Thanks for feeling like we know each other for years! Thanks for the surf guiding, for so much fun and laughing, for such a great overall experience. I already miss Ericeira, Moka Surf House, and you guys so much. I will definitely come back and I am already looking forward for surfing and laugh with you guys again. Love you and your house. No homo!

    It was my best beach vacation, full of waves, good people around, and Italiano (both Italian people and Italian talks). Thank you for the perfect atmosphere you create in your surf house, your valuable advice about everything and warm welcome of all guests. I hope to come back next year or even sooner. In the past month in Moscow I can't stop thinking about the ocean and when can I find some time and some good tickets to come to Portugal.
