Do I need a car?
Obviously there is no need for a rental car as we are right in the center of Sagres and also easy to access from the airports by train or bus. Click here for detailed information.
However a rental car of course gives you a variety of freedom depending on what you are looking for. Are you planning to get the most surf? Then of course a rental will help you to check not only the beaches in walking distance but also other alternatives.
But don´t worry if you arrive without a car. You can also rent scooters in town or use the bus. The next busstop ist just 100m around the corner.
How reliable is your internet?
We have a 200 Mbps access and multiple routers to boost the signal strength and ensure access throughout the entire property.
Is the surf any good?
The quality of surf varies depending on the season you plan to visit. During the winter months (October to March), the west coast experiences bigger swells and you can also surf some spots on the south coast right in front of the house (such as Mareta).
As it gets warmer, the swells tend to be smaller, but due to our location, you will always find some waves within walking distance (such as Tonel) or by driving up the coast.
Are there many surf spots around?
There is plenty of very consistent and high quality surfspots just around the corner.

The water temperature in the summer can rise up to 18-20°C, which leaves you with the possibilities of wearing a 3/2 or 4/3 wetsuit, also depending on your comfort zone.
