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: Live Simply!

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

around the house.
All the rest is history.

these next two/ three years we would say. Let’s wait and see, a new
baby might comes up in the near future.
Best spot in Portugal?

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
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
