The hotel at this place (i mean, before bought by Vila Galé) exists since a looooong time ago. It was an historic hotel and place where the rich and important families from Lisbon passes their holidays in the 70s . They always stay in this hotel for the season and always in Ericeira. It was a 'must' on that time. A glamorous place from other times... Then the hotel was bought by Vila Galé and closed during a while for big re-shaping (to put it up to date with modern life).
This is how you see it now. Not chic , not fancy not 5 ***** service or decoration but calm simple, cosy and relaxing... With a great view over the cold ocean... It is settle on top of the ocean literally. Beautiful surroundings.
Of course that for me, imagining how that place must have been in other times, with all that fancy people going around and parties, etc... it was an extra from mine imagination... But the ocean 'bathing' the hotal and the great views all over the hotel and all the walks in this cosy village , give us a very good 'scenario' for imagination...
The village of Ericeira is very nice, calm and cozy. You have everything you need in there for a small relaxing and calm holidays. Very nice.
Ericeira have good restaurants too. Some expensive places (but with very good see food a great view for the ocean) but also contains good and cheap places as well.
Good and long side-walking for nice and long walks from the hotel to the other side of the village ... always with ocean view as company.
The are also some nice bars and music at night in there.
you must pass a weekend (2 or 3 days) in here.
