Your retreat is held at a place called Casa Paço D’ilhas – a traditional heritage-style guest house with all the modern amenities you can wish for. It’s located on a hilltop, overlooking the world renowned surf breaks of Ericeira on one side, and the lush countryside of Santo Isodoro on the other side. Just a 10 min walk from the nearest beach Ribeira D’ilhas.
In the main building there’s a dining area, open fireplace, kitchen and an honesty bar where you can enjoy a glass of good Portuguese wine or a local beer. Casa Palheiro, Cabana Jardim and Casa Azores are just a few names of the very unique and charming rooms and small houses at Casa Paço D’ilhas. Imagine uneven wooden and stone floors, antique beds and chairs and other vintage details – this is a place full of soul and history.
All the Portuguese roads are well connected by bus and this is a good option for budget-minded backpackers. A private rental car or private transfer is the most convenient way to get here.
