  • Description


    The lodge is located about 25 kilometers north of the center of Porto (35 minutes by metro) in a small pine forest of the coastal village of Árvore. With a distance of only 400 meters to the sea, you can reach our "home beach" with 3 surf spots in a few minutes foot walk. The several kilometers stretched sandy beach is largely protected and part of the natural dune landscape of the Nature Reserve of Mindelo. The beach side is one of the most beautiful the region offers and is equally popular with surfers and beach lovers due to its fine white sand and wave quality.
    At the northern end of the beach, at the mouth of the river Ave, lies Praia da Azurara, one of the best surf spots in the North of Portugal, especially known for its consistent conditions as well as for its relaxed atmosphere. During the summer months, you can take a boat from here steering to the other side of the river, where the small historic seaport, Vila do Conde, attracts you with its Mediterranean flair – the original Portuguese ambiance of the old town is best enjoyed in one of its many traditional cafés and restaurants situated right at the sea side or hidden in its narrow alleys.
