PORTUGAL – GETTING HERE 2018-03-11T12:46:47+00:00

GETTING HERE

Wouldn’t it be nice and comfy to just beam yourself to wonderful Ericeira? Since there’s still some development necessary to make this possible the easiest and most comfy way to get here is via plane. Flights to Lisbon are offered by many airlines, including the obvious Swiss Airlines, Flyniki/AirBerlin, Lufthansa and TAP. However it has become more and more worthwhile to check flight-sites like checkfelix, ebookers or skyscanner when searching for the perfect connection between here and home. As with the most flight destinations: the early bird catches the worm – therefore, the earlier you book, the cheaper the ticket. The 45minute drive from Lisbon airport to our homebase in São Lourenço you may relax comfortably in one of our shuttles, which we offer daily from 7pm.

// FROM THE AIRPORT TO THE CAMP

Since our minivans are used for shuttling course participants to and from the beach throughout the day, we can only guarantee shuttles to and from the airport after 7pm. If your flight arrives at a deviating time, let us know, we’ll try our best to fulfil your wishes…

If we’re not able to come get you right away, a short trip to Lisbon city is always worthwhile (a luggage storage can be found directly at the airport). Or you choose one of the other arrival options.

// MELLOW SHUTTLE

Pick-up from Lisbon airport with one of our minivans daily from 7pm – please check availability in advance. Due to our surf courses throught the day we are not able to guarantee airport pick-ups throughout the day. Please let us know your transfer wishes the latest 2 weeks prior to your arrival via !

Costs: € 60,– per transfer (costs are split through the number of guests)

// RENTAL CAR

For the utmost freedom and individual mobility in your vacation there is always the option to rent a car directly at Lisbon airport.

Especially if you do not book surf lessons and are aiming to discover the diversity of this unique surf-region on your own we highly recommend doing so. Of course, a rental car is also worthwhile if you want to discover as much as possible of beautiful Portugal outside of your surf lessons.

Apart from high season you might be lucky and find a small car from € 90,- per week.

// BUS / COACH

Probably the most tiring but also the cheapest way to get here is taking the bus!

First you take the subway from Lisbon airport to the main bus station “Campo Grande” (Red line direction S. Sebastião – change to green line direction Telheiras). From Campo Grande you take the coach/bus to ERICEIRA. The travel to our neighbouring town Ericeira takes little more than 1 hour.

After your arrival you switch to the bus heading towards TORRES VEDRAS and deboard after a short drive at CASAIS DE SÃO LOURENÇO.

Total costs: approx. € 10,-

// TAXI

Located directly outside the arrival hall of Lisbon airport you find a taxi stand. The journey takes approximately 45 minutes.

As in many other countries we advise you to discuss the price prior to entering the cab with the driver…

Costs: approx. € 65,- to 70,-

HOW TO FIND US

Casais de São Lourenço is located directly at the coastal road N247, approx. 8km north of Ericeira (final destination of the highway A21 – 40km north-west of Lisbon).

Simply turn into the street opposite the bus stop located on the coastal road (a big sign reading Casais de São Lourenço will show you the way). 50m ahead,  right hand, you will find the Mellowmove homebase. It is a grand white and blue house with columns a parking lot in front. You can’t miss it…

// FINDING YOUR WAY FROM LISBON AIRPORT

Take the A1 NORTE from Lisbon airport. Follow the signs until you see A8 OESTE. Take the exit towards A8 OESTE (Attention – double exit: be careful not to take the A12 SUL – PT. Vasco da Gama, which would lead you to a 14km high-way bridge over the river Tejo into the opposite direction).

Once you’ve reached the tunnel stay at the far right and follow the sign A8 OESTE direction LEIRIA.

Stay on the A8 until the intersection MALVEIRA/MAFRA/ERICEIRA. Here you transit onto the A21 leading towards ERICEIRA. Leave the A21 at its final destination passing the toll station ERICEIRA!

At the adjoined roundabout you take the second exit towards RIBEIRA D’ILHAS – after passing two smaller roundabouts (always direction Ribeira d’Ilhas) you’re already on the coastal road N247 heading north. 

Leaving Ribeira d’Ilhas (a famous beach-break) behind you pass the town of RIBAMAR. Rolling down the hill you will see the town sign SÃO LOURENÇO on the following ascent.

Keep going uphill until you’ve reached the end of the town, where you’ll see a bus stop on your left side. Opposite – right handed – you’ll see a big sign pointing towards CASAIS DE SÃO LOURENÇO.

Turn right and follow the street for approx. 50m.

Now you find yourself in front of a big white and blue house with columns and a parking lot in front of it – CONGRATULATIONS! You’ve made it!

Some quick notes regarding highway toll:

Don’t use the green lines (Via Verde) at the toll stations! These are reserved exclusively for cars with yearly prescription and you will not receive a valid toll ticket but a ticket with a fine.

Length: 50km

Time: approx. 45min
