Traveling to Portugal

by Feiks

Traveling to Portugal in the first week of July with my family and was look at Ericeira as a nice place for base camp. I have a 10 and 11 year old and I thought the beach would be fun and I love the idea of the old fishing village. It sounds very much like San Sebastin in Spain. My concern is about the wind. Does it get windy there in July? How is the weather? If not Ericeira, where else would you recommend?

I have recently discovered a wonderful place in Ericeira by the name of Quinta dos Raposeiros. It is right outside Eirceira perched on ahill overlooking the ocean. There is a trail that you can take all the way down to Sao Lourenco beach. The accomodations are absolutely perfect for families and you can also enjoy the pool or half-pipe for the children.
They can be found under wonderfulland.com or their own website quintadosraposeiros.com
Let us know what you think and enjoy your family holiday.
Portugal is a very special place.

Would you recommend Ericiera or Cascais? Is wind a problem? Thank you so much for your response.

Wind conditions in general or do you refer to ocean conditions.
July and August are the warmest months of the year and the weather will certainly be summery, great outdoor/beach weather.
As for the are and their beaches, these are abit wilder and certainly ideal for surf and bodysurfing; although you can still find calmer beaches if that is what you are looking for.

Cascais and Estoril offers compeltely different selections of beach, calmer certainly.
If Cascais is what you are looking for then I would try Casal Antigo for affordable loding although not in center of town. Lodging in Cascais in general will certainly be more costly.

Feel free to ask any others questions.
Cheers!

Travel Tips for Ericeira

Fishing

by solopes

Ericeira was, in the 18th century, one of the more important fishing places of Portugal (the proximity of Lisbon being the reason). The conditions of the harbour are hard, and the development moved that importance to other ports - in Lisbon's area, for instance, Peniche and Sesimbra.

Tourism became the first activity, but fishing keeps present, nowadays more sportive than professional.

Popular events

by solopes

In the small villages of Portugal, mainly in the north, during the summer, is common to find some festivities, with not much than an opportunity for meeting people and chat. Some (generally bad) music, popular cakes and vendors, and that's all. I was not expecting it in winter, in a touristy place like Ericeira, but... I found it. Funny!

It happens in December 8th, a national holiday.

This picture is from Ericeira. It is nice little village north from Lisboa.
The views from this bench is marvellous, especially at sunsets.
In the village are excellent fishfood restaurants.

We stayed at Hotel de turismo das Ericeira, wich has beautiful views to Atlantic ocean. There is also couple of swimming pools(one with sea-water).
Good value, absolutely.

Take a day trip to Sintra

by mocca

It is a nice getaway from Ericiera, and it isn't too far. It takes just over an hour if you take the bus. If you have your own transportation, it only takes about half an hour to get to Sintra.
Just go there wander around it's narrow alleyways and feel the old times come to life again.

Pillory

by solopes

Medieval symbol of justice, most of the small towns with discreet history are proud of their pillory. Ericeira is no exception, and in 1924 reconstructed it, with the original stones buried in place when Ericeira was lowered from "vila" to "freguesia".

Dated from the XIV century it still keeps the rings were the convicted were tied.
