A Surf House where you feel like Family

Hanging Out With Diogo & Duarte,

The founders of The Peak House.


If there’s something that Diogo and Duarte share as brothers it’s their passionate about traveling, seeking new places and discovering cultures. That’s how The Peak House was born – a surf house where you feel like family. Good energy is present in the house, located in Sintra, where it is possible to be close to the sea and the mountains, surf good waves, go hiking and explore the best of the city. Just being there is enough to feel the manifesto that the team believes in: Life Simply!

Get to know them.

Can you tell us your story so far?

Since a very young age the ocean was always present in our life. After more than 30 years living in Lisbon we were feeling a bit tight in a city that didn’t fulfil anymore our conscience and life goals. The strong connection we both have to nature and ocean, the family bonds we have to Sintra since generations, were the call for a decision to move here and build up this project. We are celebrating one year since we opened the House and we couldn’t be happier with all the friendships we’ve done, and the positive vibes around the house. All the rest is history.

Next steps to you?

The Peak House is still a baby and so there’s a lot to do on these next two/ three years we would say. Let’s wait and see, a new baby might come up in the near future.

Best spot in Portugal?

Fortunately, Portugal delivers world class waves from north to south on a very consistent basis, and so it’s hard to pick a favorite spot. Without romanticism, I would say an empty spot with our best friends, wave after wave until the sun goes down.


What does style means to you?

Style means atitude, conscience and sense of responsibility for the Mother Nature and the other human beings, in and outside of the water.

What motivated you to get started with The Peak House?

The Peak House was a dream come true. Since a long time ago when we both started traveling around the world, chasing the perfect wave, most of the times we ended up staying in places with the same feeling as The Peak House, where the contact with local people was always a priority to us. These people and friends inspired us to embrace this lovely journey.

What is the band / music  style / music artist that inspire you?

We are very romantic, so I would say any song that touches our heart.

Any guilty pleasure worth mentioning?

Banana pancake for breakfast from our good friend Lynie (Bingin, Indonesia). We try to replicate it at the house every morning.  LIVE SIMPLY !
