  • Description


    We are a couple of surfers that have a Guest House, SUP lessons in the village of Melides and a Surf School in the village of Carvalhal (18 km of distance of the house). We love surfing, receive people of all part of the the world, biking by the rice fields near our house, birdwatching. Our guest house is not a usual surf camp because we receive couples with kids, families, people with more age, etc.
