About Deb or Wayne Gales
Hello - I live with my husband and our young family in Billinge, Nr Wigan. Our villa is our 'home from home' and we take extra special care to ensure it provides people with all they need to have a great relaxing stay. Having stayed in many villas prior to buying our own and being disappointed with the facilities etc, I have made it my mission to ensure our villa is equipped with everything you or your family could possibly need or require. Equally, I understand the importance of providing excellent customer care from the initial booking enquiry, during and after your stay, as I fully appreciate the investment (both financial and emotional) made when deciding on where to stay. Please book with confidence, we have been advertising with Owners Direct 5 years, thanks Deborah
Deb or Wayne Gales purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Deb or Wayne Gales chose Mafra
We decided to buy a villa in Ericeria as the area retains all the charm of Portugal is very relaxed and ideally located with lots to see and do in the area or if just relaxing at the pool side or at one of a number of local beaches is your thing, you will not be disappointed! With Lisbon airport only 30-40 minutes away, the airport transfer is quick, especially useful if you have a family to care for. The local area offers really good value when it comes to shopping and eating out, as it is yet to become as 'commercial' as the likes of the Algarve. Local people are also very friendly and helpful. Our representatives also live close by so are on hand to help or offer advice if needed.
What makes this Villa unique
We feel our villa offers families and large groups all the facilities needed to have a great stay, whilst also providing and benefiting from many home comforts. The villa boasts a larger than normal private swimming pool, Cable TV (some UK and international channels), free high speed WiFi, full size slate bed pool table and pub table football, not to mention xbox, games etc. The villa is large and can easily provide accommodation for a large family or number of families and given the unique layout, five bedrooms and four bathrooms and provides lots of internal and external personal space in which to relax.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
When we arrived Fernando met us, showed around property. Being a party of 9 we decided not to hire cars, this did not matter because Fernando or his son , supermarket runs; waiting while we shopped and trip to Lisbon, with lots of useful advice. Our 5 grandsons really enjoyed the pool, swimming at all times of the day . had a few bar-b's. Boys enjoyed playing pool and table football. HAPPY TIME.
Checking in was super easy Fernando might us at the home. Great home we where a group of 10 everyone enjoyed their stay. Family friendly with a lot to do pool games and movies.
The spacious villa made everything so comfortable.
We were 6 adults and two children staying at Deb and Waynes beautiful Villa. The location is perfect for what we wanted but a car is a must. Its situated slightly outside Ericeira.
The neighborhood is very peaceful and just a short walk away you'll find a restaurant and a bakery.
The kitchen has what you need. The appliances worked as they should.
Fernando, the host, is very nice and was very helpful.
From the day we booked until we left everything ran very smoothly. Thank you for the professional service!
We highly recommed the villa, we didn't really want to leave!
Thank you Deb and Wayne!
Pictures don’t do it justice
This property is perfect in every way. We stayed as a family of 8 and a baby.
The place is big enough so you aren’t under each others feet, but at the same time, feels homely too!
Great location outside the main town.
Fernando is a true gentleman, very polite and always willing to help.
Thank you so much, family who stayed elsewhere came by and we have passed details onto them too!
Thank you again!
Just wonderful and relaxing 😊
The villa was very clean and so well equipped.
All eight of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Fernando was an absolute god send. He was always able to help with lifts, advise and was very friendly - an asset.
The area was lovely and quiet (which is what we all wanted) and peaceful.
Easy to venture into Lisbon and Ericeira - both beautiful.
Will definitely be recommending this villa.
It was at nice,clean and good house with all the facilities needed. And Fernando was always avalible to be contacted. The area was interresting to visit, and we loved the small villages Ribamar and Ericeira. We will come back someday to this house and area.
Thanks for the feedback we look forward to welcoming you back soon
