Great location and view. Stylish and comfortable.

We had a great week in Ericeira in this spacious and well located apartment. The town of Ericeira is a short walk away, but a car is useful to get to the best beaches and around the area. It was nice to be welcomed at the apartment by Carlos and Conceição who gave us some tourist tips and had prepared a small welcome pack.
