A Typical /Space day

Begins the way you want it to begin – Take your time to flow into the morning. There will be breakfast for both - the early bird as well as the late working morning grouch. Good waves in the morning? Time to play!

Work on your stuff or tune in - You can always take your own projects one step ahead and get shit done.  Our curated program is an offer, networking an opportunity and co-working a matter of interest, passion and motivation.

Please note!
Surfing is an outdoor activity that goes with the flow of the ocean and daily weather conditions. Hence we might swap some events regarding the rhythm of the ocean, swell and tides. Surfers know what that means. If you are no surfer, relax, you won't miss a thing. 


The Location

Our /Spaces are hosted in a private Portuguese style villa next to the surfing beach of Praia São Julião. The area lures with a fantastic backdrop: The rugged Atlantic Coast of Ericeira, named Europe's 1st surf reserve. The villa offers remoteness and calm to focus on hustling. Its proximity to the Atlantic and surf as well as to Ericeira and Lisbon will also give those a blast who are looking for serendipity, action and excitement.  

Play, Surf & Chill

Surfing – Find great waves just in front of the villa. Enjoy the walk down to Praia São Julião or explore the nearby world class spots of Ribeira, Coxos & Co by car.
(We recommend to advanced surfers to bring own gear)

Beginners welcome – You haven't tried surfing but want that bliss of fantastic ocean spirit? We arrange special surf courses in our own surf school for you. Just let us know with your application.

No surf? No problem! – If you don't want to surf or if you are just looking for some playtime after a hard working session we offer plenty of other activities:

bike rentals, massage, yoga, pilates etc.
Hey, and sometimes it's just great to lean back and breathe in the salty air!
