About the property

Perfect, peaceful, holiday neighbourhood for the family, a ‘home away from home’

Cosy farmhouse designed and renovated down to the smallest detail; close to São Lourenço beach and the famous surfing beach, Coxos, where you can enjoy the waves. A lovely garden with a terrace tangled in vines, a top-notch grill with a rustic, wood-burning oven for baking pizza, bread, and potatoes, a basketball court, a lawn area with sun loungers, a large, separate game room with a billiards table, and 2 guaranteed parking spaces for cars right next to the house. The entire property is enclosed by a tall wall and does not just ensure safety for children and pets, but also undisturbed privacy, so you can actually relax on your holiday. The home features a master bedroom (without the southern European, wool blankets–nice, German down quilts here!), an adjacent shower, a spacious living and dining area with a fireplace, a Danish wood-burning stove, and air-conditioning. The adjacent, open-plan kitchen has makes it possible to keep conversation going between the kitchen and the living/dining area. The kitchen has an exit out into the garden (to the terrace), where you can pick fresh spices, grapes, or lemons. Weather permitting, you can always choose to eat outside. The charming, sloped attic has everything the children can need, including a cot. Three children and a baby can sleep here. Everything is on hand here to guarantee a fantastic, Atlantic holiday in a peaceful environment. Night owls of any age will find Ericeira, with its many bars, restaurants, and clubs, intriguing. Internet: From 2016 on, there is wireless internet available.

About Sabine Rolfs

I am German, but have lived in Portugal for a decade and I breed exotic animals in the area. Please feel free to visit me at my ‘Quinta Amazónia’! At the beginning of 2014, I fell in love with this picturesque (and that does not mean dilapidated) home and bought it immediately, because I would have loved to have such a home for my own holidays. I hope all my guests have a great time here!

Sabine Rolfs purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Sabine Rolfs chose Ericeira

The ‘Casa de Cia’ is perfect for those on holiday who are looking for an extremely comfortable, clean, and newly renovated holiday home with plenty of space around it to enjoy the fine weather. Such a charming and stylishly decorated home can be difficult to find. It is obvious that an artist was at work here and many of the details here simply cannot be found in the average holiday home. Multiple beaches are accessible by foot or by bicycle.

What makes this cottage unique

The gorgeous, south-facing terrace is shielded from the wind and the garden is full of sun!

Near the beach! Two gorgeous beaches are within walking distance. Plenty of shopping options! Restaurants and cafes are just 2 minutes away!

A unique holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

It was such a treat to stay here for a week! The outside area was excellent - lots of pretty spots to relax. Inside, the property was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Sabine, the owner, was very helpful and made great recommendations for places to eat! We felt well looked after! We went as a couple, but because the house is so spacious it could also suit a family. Ribamar itself is a really lovely village within walking distance of the beach. If you have a car, it's a great base for exploring. We would definitely go back!

We loved the house and Sabine was very serviceminded

  • 4 of 5

We can absolutely recommend this house for a big family who likes sport and beaches. The house was clean and we especially enjoyed the garden and basket court. We do recommend that you rent à car, it is too long way to walk for children. We recommend you go to all the different beaches, especially the one in Santa Cruz. Il Pescatore was à Perfect restaurant in Ribamar for à family, good good and nice staff. We really can recommend this house!

Sehr schönes Haus in ruhiger Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit im Haus. Mit dem Auto ist man im Handumdrehen in Ericeira und den unzähligen Surfspots. Im Haus und im Garten hat es uns an nichts gefehlt. Sollten wir noch einmal nach Ericeira kommen, dann wissen wir wo wir wohnen werden :)

Erholsamer als hier, kann man keinen Urlaub machen

  • 4 of 5

Wunderbare 9 Tage haben wir in diesm schönen Landhaus verbringen dürfen. Es hat uns an nichts gefehlt. Es ist alles vorhanden, was man braucht. Der Garten ist einfach nur wunderbar zum entspannen. Auch mit Kindern kann hier keine Langeweile aufkommen. Basketball und Billard sorgen für gelungenen Zeitvertreib.

Es sind wunderbare Strände vor der Haustür, an denen man den Surfern zuschauen kann. Oder man besucht selber einen Surfkurs. Das nette Örtchen Ericeira ist gleich um die Ecke. Es lädt ein zu bummeln, lecker essen oder einfach das Portugisische Leben in den Seitenstraßen zu genießen.

Wer leiber Kultururlaub, als Badeurlaub macht, kommt hier auch nicht zu kurz. Atemberaubende Landschaften und tolle historische Städte sind gut mit dem Auto zu erreichen.

Sabine hat jede Menge Tips und sollte man es auch nicht versäumen, ihren kleinen Privatzoo zu besuchen.

Wir waren nicht das letzte Mal da.

Liebe Grüße

Maraike und Wilhelm

Erholung pur

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns mit der ganzen fünfköpfigen Familie über zwei Wochen in diesem sehr schönen Haus richtig wohl gefühlt. Es liegt sehr ruhig und hat alles, was man braucht und noch mehr (Basketballkorb!)! Von hier aus kann man tolle Ausflüge machen und kommt nach erlebnisreichen Tagen an Stränden oder in schönen Ortschaften immer wieder gerne "nach Hause". In Ribamar gibt es zwei kleine "Supermercados", die alles Nötige im Sortiment haben, auch frisches Obst, Brot, etc., in einem wird sogar etwas Deutsch gesprochen. Die Vermieterin, Frau Rohlfs ist sehr nett, hilfsbereit und zuverlässig. Alles in allem ist ein Aufenthalt hier sehr zu empfehlen!

Ribamar is a picturesque location right by the ocean, 3 km north of Ericeira. Those looking to avoid spending the busy summers in Ericeira, but still partake in the action, will find this holiday home to be perfect. It has been renovated and tastefully decorated by an artist. Some great things about it: the beach is within walking distance and there are two small supermarkets, 5 lovely cafes, and countless, great restaurants (especially for lovers of fresh fish/seafood) in the immediate vicinity. If you are done driving for the day, feel free to enjoy a glass of wine: the wine prices at restaurants in Portugal is very different from most other places. There is also a great lunch restaurant specialising in Portuguese tapas in the town. Ribamar has everything that your little holiday heart could desire: a selection of beautiful beaches; a pharmacy; retail stores; good, clean butcher’s shops where you can buy meat for your next barbecue; a fishmonger; a launderette; and so much more! Lisbon is just a stone’s throw away on the new highway, but can also be reached by bus. The wonderful holiday home, Casa de Cima, is a located on a quiet, peaceful street. The terraces behind the house seem like they were plucked out of a fairy tale, tangled in vines, with lovely garden furniture for an al fresco meal and a fantastic, built-in grill as well as a wood-burning oven for baking your own bread (or pizza). There is a ‘half’ basketball court and a game room with a billiards table. The garden is beautifully maintained and the southern end is shielded from the wind, perfect for sitting out well into the early morning hours. It would not be complete without some sun loungers to stretch out on. GREAT PRICES FOR 2014–THE HOUSE IS AVAILABLE FOR FIRST-TIME SHORT-TERM RENTALS!
