FAMILY SURF HOME

z​

Family Surf Home started the project in April 2017 in order to facilitate the rental some houses in Ribamar, with the prospect of accommodation for surfers who favor a place with good energy, good conditions and obviously, very close to the beaches of Ericeira World Surfing Reserve: Praia Ribeira d'Ilhas, Praia dos Coxos and Praia de São Lourenço. Currently it has five Accomodations at the same location.

The construction of the Bungalows started in 2018, and it was carried out based on the recycling of marine containers, simply by the labor of two people. The electricity and hot water come from solar panels. The Bungalows are located in a private area, with a electric gate, parking space, swimming pool, two barbecue grills, two recycling dust bins, an outside shower with a place to store surfboards, surf wetsuits...

In 2020, we opened the Hostel with a capacity for 12 guests. Our aim was to create a welcoming environment to connect people from all over the world and transform the stay into a unique experience.

Family Surf Home is located in two different places:

- Eco Bungalows on Rua do Meio in Vila Palhais;

- Accommodations and Hostel on Rua das Flores in Vila Ribamar.

RIBAMAR

Ribamar is a town in the parish of Sto. Isidoro, located about 38 km from the center of Lisbon and less than 3 km north of the well-known Ericeira coast (considered as one of the best 100 villages in Europe). This village is known not only for its gastronomy, where you can delight in the famous national restaurants, which stand out for the serving of seafood and other sea specialties, but also for its beaches (S. Lourenço, Coxos and Ribeira D'Ilhas), which are part of the Ericeira World Surfing Reserve, the first of its kind in Europe, where national and international surfing and bodyboard competitions are organized.

Ericeira became a World Surfing Reserve on October 14, 2011, when it was declared by the international organization Save the Waves Coalition. It was simply the 2nd Reserve to be distinguished worldwide and remains the only one in Europe to this day.

HISTORY

z

In historical terms, there are buildings such as the Fort of Santa Susana and the chapel of the eighteenth century.

The Fort of Santa Susana, south of the beach of S Lourenço, was built in the 17th century by order of

D. João IV, to defend the coast against attacks of piracy and, together with Fort Picoto, was part of the Lines of Towers (set of fortifications that aimed at the defense of Lisbon during the French invasions). It also served as a barracks until 1948, when it was transferred to the guardianship of the Fiscal Guard. Around it are observed the parapets and the open gunboats that date from the nineteenth century.

The chapel has on the side door the date of 1736, having been rebuilt in 1959. At the end of 2005 there was still reconstruction of the roof and exterior arrangements. In this, stands the image of S. João Baptista the in polychrome wood.

In the last 20 years, Ribamar has become the seafood capital of the Lisbon region, with around 15 shellfish restaurants and more than 1 000 000 visitors per year.
