Da Silva Surfcamp Portugal
Um refúgio perfeito
a typical portuguese country house in the middle of nature
A warm welcome
The Da Silva Surfcamp Portugal is a typical Portuguese country house in the middle of nature without any road traffic in the immediate vicinity. The property is surrounded by vast fields and from everywhere you have a fantastic view over the green landscape and a wide valley up to the opposite villages. From the huge sun terrace you can comfortably lie in your hammock and see the blue sea and the beach resort Praia da Areia Branca.
In the evening, you can enjoy a wonderful sunset here. There are several beautiful paths through the landscape to the beach, where you can reach it on foot in about 20 minutes. With the beach cruiser, which you can rent for free from us, you don’t need 10 minutes and by car you can reach the beach in 3 minutes. Although you are so close to the Atlantic Ocean, you have the feeling of being somewhere in the country far away from the hustle and bustle of beach life.
The Da Silva Surf Camp Portugal has one double room, one triple room, one terrace room for 2-4 persons, one four-bed room, one seven-bed room and three separate wooden houses (Tiny Houses). In total we have space for 32 people. But this is distributed quite well, as there are many corners and niches in which one can retreat, for example if one wants to read a good book in peace.
The rooms in the main house
The double room, the 3-bed room and the terrace room are on the first floor of the main house and share a bathroom with shower on the ground floor, while the terrace room also has a private toilet. The girl’s 4-bed room is located on the ground floor of the main house next to the cosy fireplace room. The 7-bed room is located in an annex next to the kitchen. The shared rooms each have their own shower room. The 7-bed room also has a warm outside shower.
The communal kitchen, where breakfast is served every morning, is located on the ground floor next to the large covered outdoor area, where the barbecue evenings are also held.
Since spring 2019, we are pleased to offer you our Tinyhouse “Luna” – with everything one needs. A small kitchenette, fridge, bathroom with toilet and shower. A quiet area with a beautiful view. Enjoy!
The “Tinyhouse Eloá” stands a short distance down the slope towards the miniramp. So for the skaters among you a dream! Who hasn’t always wanted to wake up right next to a beautiful miniramp? Apart from that, the cottage, just like the other one, offers a small kitchenette, refrigerator, bathroom with toilet and shower, and the same wonderful view over the wide countryside to the opposite villages, above which the sun rises in the morning and shines directly into the bedroom. Sleepy people should therefore draw the curtains before going to sleep 🙂
About 20 meters from Da Silva Surfcamp is this separate wooden house, which is ideal for people who want to be part of the social life of a surfcamp, but want to be able to withdraw at any time. The cottage has a very pleasant indoor climate. During the day it does not get too hot and at night the pleasant warmth of the sun stays in the house. In the cottage there is a small television with satellite reception, i.e. you can also watch German television. If you want to cook something, the communal kitchen of the surf camp is at your disposal. On the way there, you will pass directly by our bar, where you can refresh yourself before or after the exhausting kitchen work.
Quarto do Terraço
Double or 4-Bed Room
The terrace room is located on the first floor of our main house above the fireplace room. The room has a loft bed with double mattress. Below it there is a toilet with a sink and a small table where you can play cards. In the front part of the room there is a cosy sitting area. The sofa can be turned into a comfortable double bed, so that the room is suitable for two couples or even better for a couple with two children. But the highlight is without doubt the big sun terrace (partly covered), from which one has a great view over the wide landscape up to the Atlantic Ocean. The terrace can also be reached via an outside staircase (from Mario and Elke’s courtyard). Therefore sometimes other guests sunbathe there, but in the evening we ask you to keep the night’s rest. Showers can be taken in the common bathroom on the ground floor or in the (warm) outdoor shower around the corner.
The double room on the first floor of the main house can be reached via the internal staircase from the kitchen or the fireplace room. The room has two single beds, which can also be pushed together to form a double bed. If necessary, a cot can also be added. The window offers a great view over the wide landscape to the opposite village Zambujeira. The bathroom with shower on the ground floor is shared with guests staying in the other two rooms on the first floor. In the room with the fireplace, however, there is a guest WC for urgent cases.
Double or Triple Room
Also located on the first floor of the main house, if you look out of the window of this room, you can see the village of Abelheira on the horizon. The room has a double bed and a plateau (gallery) with a single mattress. Perfect for a couple with a child or 3 adults who love each other very much. The bathroom on the ground floor is also shared with the other two rooms on the first floor.
Girls 4-bed room
Our 4-bed room on the ground floor can be reached directly from the fireplace room. There are two bunk beds and the guests have their own shower room at their disposal. Right next to the door there is a guest WC in the fireplace room.
Mixed / 7 Bedrooms
Our largest shared room is located in a separate building just around the corner from the kitchen and diagonally opposite our bar. There are 3 bunk beds in the room and above the bathroom with shower there is a loft bed (gallery) with another single mattress ideal for people over 2 metres tall because the foot end is open. Outside next to the entrance door you can enjoy a wonderful hot shower outdoors while enjoying the view over the wide landscape.
fully booked ≠ fully booked
You can also book a camper van with us and / or of course you can arrive with your own camper van. The prices for this are the same as for our shared rooms. For two persons this has the advantage that they are alone in the caravan and do not have to pay the double room surcharge. The caravan has an electricity connection, the built-in toilet must not be used. Of course the guests are allowed to use the bathroom and kitchen in the main house, as well as the whole outside area.
That’s all there is to it.
Our Surfcamp Portugal is an open house, which means that there is always a lot going on here. Apart from the communal dinners, which are included in the price, we often organize spontaneous barbecues or campfire sessions. Since we are half Portuguese ourselves, friends of ours (locals) come over to sit around the campfire. Then it is not uncommon that suddenly someone takes out a guitar and the evening goes on much longer than planned. But there are also some very nice party-excursions in the surrounding area, to which we would like to take you in our shuttle bus. After all, you should not only learn to surf, but also get to know some of the nice Portuguese nightlife.
Around the house there is mainly a lot of rustic nature. You can take wonderful walks along the field paths. On the other side of the valley there is the typical farm village “Zambujeira”. There is nothing else except a small café and a mini grocery shop. But it is still worth a visit, as it is really still very original there. Once a year, sometime in August, there is a big village festival, for which even the great-grandmothers dress up. If you want to go out in the evening, you have to go to Praia da Areia Branca or Peniche, but we will take you there with our shuttle bus. So you don’t have to worry, you will certainly not get bored.
