This beautiful collection of villas for sale in Ericeira is a rare opportunity to own a slice of paradise in one of the World’s Surfing Reserves off the beaten track with stunning coastal views, delicious food and a laid-back atmosphere.

A world-famous destination for surfing within easy reach of Lisbon, Ericeira offers an incredible quality of life for those who want to embrace the surf-before-work culture.

If you can draw yourself away from the allure of the waves, walking around the area you will find yourself in between contemporary townhouses set in tranquil residential streets and the buzzing central area with traditional handicraft shops, fashion boutiques and, of course, many surf stores spread around.

The properties

Created by award-winning designers and developers with experience in the real estate markets in Brazil and Portugal, this project consists of eight villas for sale with functional designs ranging from one to three bedrooms with parking spaces, swimming pools for all units and garden areas. The project is designed for those who want a special place with indoor and outdoor interaction, without giving up the practicalities needed for modern life. The condominium facilities include an observation deck with furniture to overlook the beach or enjoy the sunset, a playground area and a mini skate ramp.

Ideal for surf lovers, remote workers and families that enjoy the outdoor lifestyle or as an investment - available for rent for long, medium or short term. The materials were chosen to highlight the design and create a cosy atmosphere, without losing sight of the practical life and easy maintenance.

The properties are located at the beautiful Ribeira d’Ilhas beach on the right-hand side of the clifftop. At the beach, you can find a trendy bar and restaurant, with a large terrace with sea views and great infrastructure for experienced surfers or beginners with the Ericeira surf school. All of it makes Ribeira D’Ilhas the centre of the region’s surf life, a privileged location in Ericeira that has a property market that is growing every day in demand and, consequently, in price.

Investment potential

The location is known as a summer destination but is also attractive out of the peak season. At the end of 2022, Airbnb released a statement that Ericeira was the second fastest economically growing Portuguese surf area, with the number of stays outside of the surf season increasing by 150%. For hosts with a house in these spots, the surf season which traditionally runs from September to April opens up an economic opportunity to have an additional source of income outside the summer peak. Just recently, in 2022, the first Ericeira 5-star hotel opened up to the public confirming the increased interest in the region.

Ericeira has become the focal point for Portuguese surfing and since the 1970s, the area has been calling the attention of investors and surfing-related businesses, which have risen in the area, and it continues to grow exponentially - especially after being selected as one of the World’s Surfing Reserve.

But what is a World Surfing Reserve? It means the area serves as a model for preserving wave breaks and their surrounding areas by recognising and protecting key environmental, cultural and economic attributes in coastal communities created by the Save The Waves organisation. There are only 11 WSR sites and Ericeira is the only one in Europe. This world-class surfing area includes 7 waves areas in 4km: Pedra Branca, Reef, Ribeira d’Ilhas, Cave, Crazy Left, Coxos and São Lourenço.

Ribeira d’Ilhas beach is a well-known host destination of the professional surf route hosting several WSL events, World Tours and junior competitions.
