This is an amazing location situated on the headland like a ship in the ocean. The waves that come crashing by are spectacular from the balcony rooms overlooking the sea. It's a surfers paradise if you like surfing. Ericeira is a quiet fishing village with one Main Street. A holiday for getting away from hustle and bustle to relax. Lovely... More

Stayed for 5 nights in the Vila Gale Hotel. Best location in Ericeira overlooking the ocean and local beach. Room was comfortable with sea view and balcony. Great selection at breakfast to suit all tastes and international preferences (although I'm not a big fan of frankfurters in place of a good old pork sausage). Having said that the sparkling cava/wine... More

My husband and I spent a week at Vila Gale in May 2014. An incredible week. Nice og cosy village, where we spent a lot of time, nice little restaurants etc. The hotel was absolutely first class, the staff did everything to make our holiday a relaxing stay. We are returning in september 2014 again.
