About the property

Ribamar, Near Ericeira, Mafra, Lisbon Coast, Portugal - Located by Ribamar, A Quiet Private Residential Area Minutes From A Number Of Quality Beaches & Bars

The Costa de Lisboa/Lisbon region. The Lisbon coast has many beautiful beaches and Unesco heritage places to visit, which is perfect for holiday makers seeking a relaxing holiday to escape from tourists-crowded Algarve yet enjoy some culture and some beautiful historic ancient towns a short drive away. Sintra - 45 min from the villa. Sintra is a UNESCO World Heritage Site on account of its 19th century Romantic architecture. Sintra has become a major tourist attraction, with many day-trippers visiting from nearby Lisbon. Attractions include the fabulous Pena Palace (19th c.) and the Castelo dos Mouros (reconstructed 19th c.) with a breath-taking view of the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, and the summer residence of the kings of Portugal Palácio Nacional de Sintra (largely 15th/16th c.), in the town itself. The Sintra Mountain Range, one of the largest parks in the Lisbon area, (Serra de Sintra) is also a major tourist attraction. Obidos - 1hr from the villa.

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 Ericeira

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The villa most certainly met our expectations, we had a great time thank you!

We also really enjoyed the area and would love to come back.

Just wonderful and relaxing 😊

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at this villa with my partner and family (there were 7 of us in total), and we all had a lovely, relaxed stay. The villa was spacious and modern, whilst also feeling homely (definitely a home away from home!). There was plenty within the villa to keep us all entertained- the pool (cool but refreshing in the summer heat!), the games room with a pool table, table football and xbox with a range of games, a variety of books, toys for little ones, board games, and satellite TV. The villa was clean and contained everything we needed during our stay, which allowed us to have a relaxed and enjoyable break.

The villa itself is situated near Ericeira, which is a short drive away, and has a range of little shops (including a supermarket) and a sandy beach (which is renowned for being good for surfers). Further afield, there was plenty to explore- including Sintra (which has a beautiful park, and is a world heritage site), Mafra, and Lisbon itself (I highly recommend checking out the Oceanarium and Lisbon Zoo, particularly if you're travelling with kids).

I'd highly recommed the villa to those looking for a relaxed holiday in the sun.

going again for longer

  • 5 of 5

had a really nice time stopping here with 6 mates, was just relaxed and chilled, the surrounding area is peaceful and quiet and not to far from the town and major supermarkets and one of the beaches is only a 15 minute walk away, the villa itself is clean and comfortable and up to a high standard, it offers everything and more, 10/10

it was perfect for a group of 21-22 year olds who just wanted a relaxing holiday not a partying one and we'd all love to visit again!

Another great holiday! Third visit to the villa and would still recommend it to anyone. Very relaxing by the pool and great beaches nearby. Love the town of Ericeira and Obidos is well worth a visit.

Hope to go again in the near future!!!!

Special interest holidays:

Surfing is the dominant sport in the area, with the famous Praia da Ribheria d'Ilhas beach, home of many world champion surfing and wind surfing championships. This beach enjoys a cafe area, surf school and like many of the beaches in the area, a life guard during the high season. Equally the area also offers fishing, diving and sailing. Alternatively you could discover the beautiful landscape on a mountain bike, horseback riding or by just hiking around or walking along the main prom.


The villa is well place allowing access to a number of beaches within minutes drive. The closest being Praia da Ribheria d'Ilhas beach which is a couple of minutes drive or 15 minutes walk from the villa.


Lisbon airport is the closest - 45km (35min drive). Although flights to Porto and Faro should also be considered, although some 2.5 - 3 hours drive away. Flights direct to Lisbon from Manchester using TAP, EasyJet from both Liverpool and Luton. Direct flights to Lisbon also available from Gatwick - Monarch, Luton - EasyJet and Birmingham - BMI Baby.

The villa is well-placed for access to the motorway network.

Car hire is highly recommended, although there is a bus stop at the end of the road.


Ericeira - 3km. Lisbon - 45km. Mafra - 10km. Sintra - 20km. All approx. The small adjacent village of Ribamar has 2 supermarkets, butcher's, baker's, restaurants, cafes and bars and is approx 10 minutes walk away.

Further Details:

If watersports or golf is not your thing, the less inclined visitor may simply want to relax around the pool or beach or alternatively sit back in one of the many pavement coffee shops and bars and enjoy the atmosphere or take in a round of crazy golf!
