Had a superb time at this surf lodge yet again. Great instructors, great food, great ambience. Good surfing trips every day followed by an excellent meal and mellow company afterwards. Best holiday location I've come across.

Myself and my sisters did 2 days of surfing in mid August with TSE through Alta Vista Surf and Adventure Lodge in Praia de Luz. It was brilliant! The instructors took the time to explain the currents and how to set up your board to get the best of the wave. They were all so encouraging and took the time to give attention to anyone that was struggling with extra pointers or help setting the board up for them. Raffy, Manuel, Alex and the Italian instructor who was on the first day with Raffy (so sorry I can’t remember his name), were all excellent and very professional. My only regret was that I didn’t book more days for the surfing. I will definitely be back again. Gertrude

I stayed at Vila Catarina for a week in August. This was my first solo trip. Was greeted by Sanna (the host), at the train station who made me feel very welcome. Accommodation is really clean, food was amazing and really accommodating for vegetarian option. Staff are very hopeful and friendly. The guests were predominately German, which is something to consider if you don't speak German. Would highly recommend if you are looking for an active but chilled holiday either solo or with friends. Surf, Yoga, great food and company - what more could you ask for.
