About Casa Paço D'Ilhas

Where we are staying! Casa Paço D'Ilhas is located on an elusive hilltop overlooking the world renowned surfbreaks of the Ericeira world surfing reserve on one side and the lush countryside of Santo Isodoro Municipality on the other side.

We are surrounded by the nature and wake up with the sound of the breaking waves when a good swell hits our shores. Yet we are located just a short drive away from Ericeira, a traditional Portuguese fishing village that has been catering for tourism for over eight centuries, but still always managed to maintain its original character, symbolized by its labyrinth of windswept alleys that whisper tales of sea faring adventures.

40 minutes from Lisbon airport.
