Hello,
I advise you to bring a 4.3, the water is usually very cold in winter and in addition the wind can also be rather cold. If you head north I suggest  some booties also. Regarding to the apartments I can't help you but if you choose a campervan just have a look at www.portugalbyvan.wordpress.com

Hello Ed,

Yes a 4'3 without a doubt. Usually the water temperature is around 15-17 degrees by that time but it gets extremely cold outside.
Do you want to surf near Lisbon or around Peniche / Ericeira?
I could help you with all the accomodation details as I work in a surf travel agency. It would be more of hotel or guest house accomodation.
Feel free to send me an e-mail: francisco.sousa@movesports.

Regards

Our Surf Camp is not ON the beach but 3 to 10kms. Check our Surfari Package and let us know. B&B is available as well.

Looking forward to hear from you.
