Whether you are learning to surf, have just been ambling around for a couple months or are a seasoned pro, the opportunity to surf within a World Surfing Reserve cannot be missed.
The waves are right off the coast of Ericeira, a cozy fishing village in Portugal that has a multitude of fun to offer.
Thankfully, the Laneez Cottage is so close to the beach and is located near quality waves. There is a good variety of waves that suit all levels.
If you’re craving the tranquility of the ocean while being curled up in your very own home away from home, look no further than the Laneez Cottage in the Ericeria village in Portugal.
The cottage has four bedrooms so this can suit everyone from friends travelling in a group, to a family or even just you and your many suitcases. However you want to spend your holiday will be perfect as long as you’re waking up to ocean views right outside your windows.
If you’re wondering what to do today, in between surfing and lazing around by the beach, then think no more: there are plenty of activities that are in close proximity to the cottage, and luckily, the cottage is within the vicinity of public transportation so exploring the town will be a breeze.
Surfing there truly is a once in lifetime opportunity, not only is it regarded as the best surfing spot in Portugal but its waters have been awarded the title of World Surfing Reserve and it was the first beach in all of Europe to receive this title. Talk about legendary waves!
Surfing lessons are available, and if you tire of surfing, then the nearby town has practically everything you could ever hope for to make an unforgettable experience.
The cottage is situated within walking distance of the shore.
The cottage has the privilege of being slightly elevated and therefore offers dramatic views of the ocean.
Prepare meals with the whole crew of friends and family in your superb kitchen, or light up a fire right by the barbeque and finally have that meal by the ocean.
Life really doesn’t get better than this.
The house features 4 bedrooms and can fit 8 people.
There’s a ground floor room that comes fitted with a bunk bed. That is one of the things most children look forward to more than anything else.
A second room comes with a Queen size bed but this can be alternated with two single beds at your request – should you be bringing a number of children or single people along.
There is a second room with an ocean view that also comes with a Queen sized bed.
Finally if you head upstairs you can find another suite with a Queen sized bed or you can have two single beds swapped to suit your needs.
The house comes with free Wi-Fi service.
Three parking spaces, two fully equipped bathrooms, the couch doubles as a sofa bed and of course there is a garden. Parking can be done directly in front of the cottage without any extra charge.
Surf & Other Activities
Eating and Drinking
The cottage is self-catering and comes pre-fit with a huge, home-style and fully equipped kitchen, as well as an outdoor barbeque for the evenings when you would like to take it nice and slow. This is the perfect opportunity to show off your chef skills to your family and friends.
There are plenty of cooking classes out in within town itself and if you would rather eat out, then look no further than the Laneez Ericeira Surfhouse which is just up the road from the cottage. Otherwise enjoy one of the many restaurants in the area.
Surf it up
For those of you who have never climbed up on a board, relax, we offer totally calm and easy surfing lessons to ensure that the moment you want to go solo you are totally covered and ready to shred those waves.
However, if you are more of a seasoned pro, then simply enquire at reception and we will take you out on a guided tour to one of the lesser known, but still amazing surf spots dotted around the beaches of Ericeira.
If you somehow happen to get a little tired of surfing, not that we can imagine that happening, there is always the town of Ericeira to explore. Head on out on any of our guided tours to the town and explore everything from the old harbour to the bustling inner center and of course, there many restaurants.
There is also much more to Ericeira than simply surfing, you can visit the Mafra National Palace where the Portuguese Royal family often stayed. Otherwise there are hills, forests and of course, museums and art galleries to explore.

I had one of the best weeks of my life, the surf instructors were fantastic and the whole atmosphere at the hostel was so relaxing. A wonderful holiday!
Mason (July 2017)
Thank you!!! I had an incredible time in Portugal. Laneez was beautiful…I got two perfect days at Ribeira, definitely the cleanest most beautiful wave I’ve surfed yet, I learned so much in a few sessions because the wave gave me the time and space to experiment.
Annette (April 2017)
Yes, we had a really great time in Portugal. Thanks so much for your recommendation of Laneez which was perfect for us! Emma and I both enjoyed learning to surf and we had some nice sunny weather, especially towards the end of the week. We enjoyed meeting Mark and Miguel and the various instructors were friendly as well as good at teaching us the basics. We also appreciated the international mix of guests. Thanks again for all your advice and help with booking the holiday. You made the whole thing really easy and the personal touch was much appreciated.
