I guess after being here for so long, it is time that I write a review:..so here it is. I first came to Surf Cascais in the beginning of August: I had never surfed before, I had never considered trying and I had never planned to. Yet, the limited possibilities to travel this summer brought me to take on all opportunities coming my way, thus, Surf Cascais. And I thank whatever or whoever made me book my plane ticket to Lisbon. The week was phenomenal, while I came with no expections, this first experience would have outdone any predictions. Apart from being surrounded by amazing guests, the highlight was the staff itself. From the surf instructors, to the management team and the volunteers, I felt immediately welcomed. The instructors were always so dynamic and shared their passion and enthusiam for surfing through excellent teaching. As my first week of surfing was coming to an end and I was on my way to the airport, I had already booked a new plane ticket to came back two weeks later. Also this time, my experience was no different: the Villa sarted to feel like a home and my enjoyment to be in the water every day was growing more and more. During those two weeks back in Cascais, I kept cancelling and rebooking my return ticket. I did not want to go back home, because I felt like I already was. As much as I was falling in love everyday more with the country, the people and the culture, the day to return "home" arrived. That's when I decided that I had to come back, and not next summer or even a month, it had to be way sooner. The 24th of september 2020 I come back. This time, I am a volunteer. Yet, even though the roles have changed, the athmosphere remains the same and Surf Cascais becomes a family. It's January 2021 now and still have not left!! During these months I have seen so many returning guests, because that's what happens here: you come for a holiday and then you end up always returning. Because at the end of the day, home is where the heart is. I want to thank David for giving me the opportunity to find that place where "you belong" or where you want ot belong at least. I want to thank the instructors for pushing me past any fears and encouraging me to always give my best, that the more you fall the more you learn...and man, have I fallen lots of time. I also want to thank all the amazing volunteers that have now become friends. So if you managed to read through all of this cheesy confession and there's one thing you must takeaway is that Surf Cascais is not only a beautiful Villa immersed in the most beautiful nature and providing top quality surf lessons, but it is a place to go when in need of a fresh start. Your end point might not be here and/or Portugal itself, but the energy here is rejuvenating and you will indeed gain the most amazing memories from it!

Thank you Diana for your lovely review. It has been a pleasure to host you several times in the Villa, first as a guest, then as a volunteer. The idea of Surf Cascais as a place where guest keep on returning makes us feel fullfilled & extremely happy . We are always looking for a friend/family environment where people feel comfortable and enjoy the most of their holidays. See you around again and again! Hopefully ! :) Cheers, Ceci & David

Surf Cascais, you’ve outdone yourselves. I visited in low season with a friend, for a little autumn sun and we were impressed at every turn. Website, communication, villa, pricing, merchandise, dedication to students, instructors, villa staff, hygiene levels, atmosphere were all 5*. Big thanks to Bica, Hugo, Pedro, Davide, Henrique, Erande, Fillipa, Diana, Megan, Judith and Marine for all the hard work and laughs. I’ll be back. Check them out on Instagram, couldn’t recommend this place highly enough, cheers!

Great Surf School with professional teachers, committed to the success of their students! I will remember those surf sessions in different weather conditions byt always with great team (and lots of laugh!) Unlike with surf schools located in one spot, with Surf Cascais you will surf on different beaches, this is also great!
