About the property

3 bedrooms, 6 people, wonderful kitchen, fireplace, new equipment, 2 bathrooms

You will not find any holiday domicile in such a privileged location. The beach can be reached in a minute by a small stairway and a romantic pedestrian bridge on top of the small river of Sao Lourenço. There is a beautiful beach bar there for snacks and refreshments. The beach only gets a lot of crowds in August and even then you can find quiet areas. This apartment is designed super spaciously; everyone has enough free space even when it is fully occupied. There are 300 television channels and enough games for rainy days, which is extremely rare here. The kitchen offers German comfort and everything that the cook desires. All bright, friendly, modern rooms have direct access to the terrace and floor to ceiling windows (doors). All guests who visited so far were very satisfied (please also see 'Guest reviews') and have promised to come back. It is suited for any type of holiday: quiet or active or gourmet, or surfing or swimming or cultural holiday.

Dream destination Portugal: currently there is no rental accommodation in this region comparable to this one. Unique setting, fantastic location sheltered from wind even in winter, fully furnished, simply perfect for holiday makers, beach, sports and relaxation and finally the best fish, the best sea food (crabs, lobsters, etc.) and the best wine that you want to taste! Also visit the nearby historical Sintra, the oldest town of the Obidos province in Portugal, go shopping in the cosy Ericeira (there all your heart´s desires are available) or take a detour to Lisbon, which is reachable 35 minutes on the new motorway. After the hustle and bustle of the vibrant city you can relax twice the time fantastically on your terrace. Also it is never too hot here at the beach, no comparison with the continental climate in inland Spain or in Portugal. A pleasant breeze always keeps blowing and cools down the day in the evenings so that after a day of enough sun, sea and ...

... beach, you can sleep dreamily. It is also a worthy destination in winter, autumn and spring, we have no idea about frost here and often the thermometer in winter rises to 25 degrees. St. Martin's summer occurs regularly in November with temperatures similar to those of June. The apartment can be booked for Christmas and Easter holidays (The fireplace functions perfectly and makes the apartment very comfortable and cosy warm. Portugal is mostly very beautiful and warm in March /April and October / November and is recommendable for a holiday.

For surfers: I can recommend a German speaking (also English and Portuguese) surf school for my guests upon request, which has the right program for beginners and experienced surfers and puts a lot of effort into training. Ericeira is the 'World's surfing grounds'! For horse back riders: dressage riders can have classes with well trained Lusitano Hengst horses. Rides on the beach and in the dunes are only offered to very experienced riders.

Many sports activities: Surfing championships take place at the world level regularly here! (Surfers beach Ribeira D Ílhas) I will gladly help in contacting a German speaking surf school. Several golf courses are also there in the neighbourhood. Entertainment is taken care even for families with young ones in teenage. The nearby Ericeira has some discotheques and bars, lot of live music, and a fun-filled folk mix in summer, since surfers come from all parts of the world to Ericeira. Since most recently Ericeira is one of the 'World surfing grounds'. So many choices on surfing grounds for all levels, weather conditions and wind direction are barely ever found anywhere in the world!

Renovated in 2012, all beds are new, new mattresses, new dining area, modern kitchen, very cosy living room! Spacious and lot of room in the outside area for garden furniture and sun beds, which are plentily available. More than enough towels and bed linen incl. final cleaning incl. Interim cleaning upon request. Use of garage upon request. (€ 50 per week) The apartment is very spaciously designed. It offers sufficient free space for every thing. The terrace was completely renovated in 2011 and is enormous. Since you live almost 80 % of the time outside at this latitude, there is ample space and also a grill available here. You will love it, grilling your fish here by the seaside with this fantastic view over the bay of Sao Lourenço, which you fished directly from the boat or in the market hall of Ericeira and then enjoy with a good glass of wine, fresh salad and tasty bread. Life is good here! You definitely wouldn't have relaxed anywhere like this on holiday before.

Location and Amenities

  • 5 of 5

I wanted a place close by to Ericeira yet not "Downtown" since I had a rental car, and this unit was perfect with just a 7 minute drive to Centro and all the services one wants and needs. I booked at the end of high season so this review does not reflect what must be in place when the whole area is jumping. We did stay through a Sunday midday and that was the day that showed how busy the place might be with the adjacent beach and its large parking lot filling up as we were leaving. What had been a wonderfully peaceful and quiet stay with tranquil coffee on the wide and long veranda was shattered by dirt bikes chasing up and down the winding road from the highway to the beach, as well as off-roading in the brushy areas across the small waterway - it was quite a change from the total peaceful stay we had otherwise had.

Sabine's rental - the East half of the middle floor of a 3 story condo - is comfortable and completely equipped with everything needed and wanted - great bed, kitchen, WiFi, security, proximity to beach, and a stunning peaceful location alongside an undeveloped greenbelt along a lagoon leading to the beach.

The patio area is great for outdoor living as seen in the photos and one is led to view the ocean and beach easily while sipping morning coffee and planning the day.

There were just the 2 of us and Sabine's unit with 3 bedrooms could easily hold 4 adults and 2 kids so we had a lot of room to share - as a couple it was easy to have a girls bathroom and a boys bathroom.and just unpack and spread out.

The location in Sao Lourenco is great - again it was not busy so whatever might be happening in busy season was not evident and the village seemed almost empty. A short walk through the village is Delphino Azul, a great restaurant with one of the world's best locations to dine al fresco overlooking the Atlantic - their pulpo salad the best ever and all the dishes had wonderful rustic authenticity of Portugal cuisine - it also has a series of steps leading to the beach.

There is street parking with a short walk through a mostly locked gate to Sabine's unit, and since hers is the middle floor there is only a 3 step stair to access her front door.

We had a little trouble finding the pool access but once we did it was a good place to dip - not really meant for swimming but splashing around in fresh water feels great anyway.

The best way to review anyplace is from the filter of would I ever want to return, and my answer is yes.

Super Blick

  • 4 of 5

Ich kann diese herrliche Wohnung nur empfehlen. Der Blick ist einmalig und die Terrasse in der Tat immer windgeschützt.

Die Wohnung ist zweckmäßig eingerichtet und einfach sehr gut.

Die Küstenregion nördlich von Lissabon ist wirklich wunderschön und unter Surfern ja bekannt.

Von langen Stränden bis zu kleinen Buchten ist alles da und auch Lissabon ist ja nur einen kurzen Trip entfernt.

Auch in Sintra kann viel sehen und es lohnt sich ein Ausflug.

Alles in allem eine wunderschöne Ecke , die ich bereits vielen ans Herz gelegt habe und in diesem Oktober nun zum 3. Mal innerhalb von 12 Monaten besuche.

Traumurlaub in Portugal

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine tolle Urlaubswoche in der Ferienwohnung von Frau Rolfs.

Die Wohnung ist gut ausgestattet, die Bilder sprechen für sich. Der Ausblick von der riesigen Terrasse kann sich sehen lassen. Wir haben das Frühstück mit Blick aufs mehr jeden Tag sehr genossen. Erholung pur.

Fußläufig gibt es ein tolles Restaurant mit Blick aufs Meer und gutem Wein. Auch Lissabon und die umliegenden Städtchen sind mit Mietwagen problemlos erreichbar. Auch hier gibt es sehr viele schöne Restaurants. Wir haben fast alle Empfehlungen von Frau Rolfs ausprobiert. :-)

Wir waren zum erste Mal in Portugal und kommen definitiv wieder. Ein tolles Land.

Vielen Dank!

Séjour extraordinaire

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour inoubliable dans cet appartement haut de gamme. En effet, l'appartement est très propre et surtout très bien aménagé, il ne manque rien , il y a énormément de vaisselles et d'ustensiles dans la cuisine, la terrasse avec vue sur la mer et exposition au sud est vraiment fantastique.Le wifi marche très bien dans l'appartement.

De plus, l'emplacement à 5 min en voiture du centre ville d'Ericeira est très pratique car proche de nombreux sites touristiques incontournables: ne manquez pas de visiter les ruelles d'Ericeira et la plage des pescadores, SINTRA à 20 min avec le Palais de Pena et le castello de los moros, Mafra, Lisbonne à 40 min et la ville d'Obidos ( ainsi que la lagune d'obidos) à 1 heure mais ça vaut vraiment le détour.

Merci encore à Sabine pour son accueil très chaleureux.

Nous espérons avoir l'occasion d'y retourner et si ce n'est pas le cas nous donnerons cette bonne adresse à des amis qui souhaitent partir bientôt au Portugal.

Eine opulente, Wohnung mit spektakulärem Ausblick. Die Bilder versprechen nicht zu viel und für sich. Großartig!

Unsere Gastgeberin ist eine sehr nette, engagierte Vermieterin.

Ein Besuch in ihrem Privatzoo lohnt sich auf jeden Fall. Beeindruckend.

Der Reitunterricht bei ihr hat unserer einen Tochter sehr gefallen und viel gebracht. Sehr professionell mit tollem Pferd.

Die andere Tochter hat das Super-Surfrevier genutzt. Besser geht nicht.

Die Eltern haben (Ende Oct. / Anfang November.!) noch häufig in der Sonne auf der gigantischen Terrasse gesessen und gelesen oder gedöst.

So geht Urlaub! Rundum zufrieden.

Schönen Dank!

Car: recommended

On the sandy beaches of Sao Lourenço, near to Ericeira, the beautiful fishing town with the best sea food restaurants in Europe, very good shopping facilities nearby. A very good, fantastic restaurant located on top of the rocks at the beach is within 3 minutes' walk. Then you wouldn't need a car on the way back, if you have considered the fantastic green wine... straight connection on highway, 35min to the airport. Absolutely quiet location in a blind alley. The beach is directly reachable by a small stairway. Without crossing the street. Probably the only terrace in the entire coast sheltered from the wind (enormously huge space!!!), since it is built on a slope and facing South. Even on winter days the terrace is well suited for having lunch and sunbathing. The apartment was fully renovated in 2012 and has got super-comfy new living room furniture. Riding opportunity for experienced horse back riders. Especially for fans of Iberian horses.

Other Activities: Classes in high school for dressage rider on best trained horses

Golf: Some very well laid out golf courses nearby (Sintra, Pena longa,Vimeiro,Lisbon).
