About Louise Ward


My name is Louise. My husband and I have three young children and live in Hertfordshire in the UK.

We bought our villa 6 years ago after holidaying ourselves in the area and fell in love with the location, people and way of life.

Louise Ward purchased this villa in 2008

Why Louise Ward chose Mafra area

This area of Portugal is unspoilt and yet offers the amenities that you would require for great holiday.

Our family enjoys surfing and the fantastic beaches and surfing opportunities were obviously a great pull.

The easy access to Lisbon and the 35 min drive to the villa made it the perfect spot for us.

In addition the nearby quaint fishing village of Ericeira provides plenty of amenities including shops, restaurants and bars.

What makes this villa unique

My key goal before beginning to rent the villa was to ensure that we provided a luxurious well maintained and well equipped villa for both families and large groups.

I pride myself on the high quality and presentation of our villa including:

- hotel quality linen and towels


- fabulous covered dining area for alfresco dining

- full free WIFI

- modern and tasteful décor throughout

- 5 separate and spacious boutique style bedrooms

I know how important holidays are to our family and I hope that I echo this through my customer care to our guests that I offer before, during and after their stay. I like to think the finishing touches make our holiday villa special.

Great family villa

  • 5 of 5

Lovely family friendly villa with everything you would need to keep kids entertained. Spotlessly clean and well maintained. Lovely warm (salt water) pool and spacious villa which is cool even the hottest weather. Close to beautiful beaches and picturesque towns and an easy base for day trips. Seafood in local restaurants is amazing and such good value!

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

This gorgeous (huge!) villa is the perfect location from which to explore Ericeira and surrounds. Its very close to one of the nicest beaches in the area, but has its own heated pool, so you may not want to leave. On arrival, we were met by a local neighbour who looked after our every need. I would highly recommend this place for a lovely portuguese holiday, the area is beautiful, well priced and great restaurants. The locals are very friendly, but the villa tops them all! Hiring a car is essential as no where is within easy walking distance but driving is easy as the roads are great and everything well signposted. The villa itself was spotless and felt very new. We travelled in mid September and the weather was perfect, mid twenties and blue skies all the way. On return we were refunfef our deposit promptly with a lovely e-mail from the owner. I would rate this property 10 out of 10!

Family of Nine

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 2 weeks stay at Villa Lamarmac - the villa was even better looking in real life, than the photographs shown in the advert. The villa easily accommodated our 2 families of 9 people (4 adults, 5 children ages: 4, 8, 9, 10 and 10yrs) total and 2 hire cars. The villa was clean, spacious and modern - and extremely child friendly, playstation, table tennis and board games etc. The closest town was Erica - and the local beaches were amazingly never crowded at all. We have no reservations to anyone considering staying here. You must have a car - a MUST - or a means of transport. Roads were very good to get about - be aware all sign posts lead to LISBON no matter if you drive North, East, South or West, so bring an updated road map as all the main motorways are being modernised. The Children had the best holiday ever. We will be back.

Perfect for the family

  • 4 of 5

for groups of adults or family. The heated pool was a god send the only down side was there was always tears when the kids had to come out of it. The tears were short lived because there was always the playstation to play and plenty of toy in the toy basket.

All the Beaches are clean and Family friendly I recommend “Foz de Lizandro” and surfing is very popular in the area.Plenty of Restaurants to choose from, all of them serve good fresh sea food.

The villa is a real home from home and you. The caretaker gives you a warm a friendly welcome, good advice about the local area,

Thinks to remember: You do need a car to get around, you are in a rural area so don’t be surprised if you here the odd shot guns in the distant fields, you are not in the Algarve so you are surround buy Portuguese but the most do speak English and are very helpful

I would recommend this villa for a family vacation
