about us

Make yourself at home at our boutique guest house in Lourinhã, the hotspot for wine lovers, surfers and connoisseurs of all kinds.


EMCASA – easy-going luxury and laid-back living on Portugal's Atlantic coast
EMCASA – friendly, welcoming hospitality
EMCASA – feels like home


Inspired by South Africa's guest houses and some of the finest boutique hotels across the globe, our objective when we created emcasa was to craft a very special place. It’s a feel-good retreat for influencers, free spirits, aesthetes – and for anyone longing to get away from it all for a few days high above the cliffs, in the midst of natural green forests, gentle hills, quaint villages and infinite sea and sky.

We look forward to your arrival.
