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.

All the comforts of home and much more

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked into Villa Lamarmac we felt at home, the property was spotless and well maintained and even thought the weather wasn't great we made good use of the pool as it was heated. We were a large group, eleven in total yet we didn't feel on top of each other as the villa is very spacious. We did not hire a car, it was easy enough to get a taxi and they were quite cheap. A lovely man called Fernando who looks after the villa couldn't do enough for us he organised transport from and to the airport, he brought us shopping to the local supermarket and he was a great help on the day of my brothers wedding collecting us in the early hours of the morning. We all had a great week in this beautiful Villa the local people were very welcoming and Ericeira is an astounding little village and the views were breathtaking. Thank you so much Louise for the use of your stunning Villa hope to be back in the near future. xx

Great sporting family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Great communication before arriving at the Villa. Really happy to see such a lovely, immaculate property on arrival. Met by Fernando who is the most helpful of people and a legend. Quickly found the surfing sites ( no need to pre-book lessons etc) made great use of the table tennis and BBQ area in the Villa. Cheap enough to buy charcoal in Lidl/Aldi but definitely recommend a large family shop for a week at the continentle supermarket on the way to the Villa in Mafra. Aldi and lidl quite restricted on choice - especially for a group of 10 people. Loved the old town. Rooms in the Villa were immaculate and we had everything we needed. Just need to take things like toilet roll, bin bags, condiments. Lots of cutlery, glasses, etc. available to use including cooking utensils. Pool was well used and enjoyed by all and in the evening a game of Scategories around the BBQ went down well. Back to Fernando - we asked if he could take a photo of us all as a family and he obliged, he even acted as a taxi service to take us all into the old town to celebrate exam results and a evening family meal. The older children stayed out late and could not get a taxi back, so they took Fernando up on his offer of calling him, whatever the time... he dutifully picked them all up at 0500 and bought them safely home... went above and beyond to make our holiday enjoyable. Would recommend to families of all ages as the Villa caters for all.

Owner's Response: Hello and thank you for your kind review. Our covered BBQ area and heated pool do seem to lend themselves to lovely ,lazy outdoor evenings. We appreciate how lucky we are to have such a friendly, reliable and trustworthy guest contact in Fernando. Taking on board your comments about "basics" like bin bags, washing up liquid & condiments, from next year we will be providing these for our guests in the aim of constantly improving their overall experience. Many thanks Lou

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!
