Quinta dos Raposeiros
Bethan recommends these Portuguese apartments, 50km from Lisbon, for avid surfers. "Surfing is owner Tiago's passion. Since childhood, he's searched for the perfect wave. Together with his wife, São, he spent two years looking for the ideal spot to live and here it is, perched on a hill," she explains. "Views sweep down a pine-strewn valley to the beaches around Ericeira, one of Europe's finest surfing spots".
