Like to live with love and peace and to make friends. We have three daughters and eight grandchildren. All together is a delight.
João Carlos Ascensão Gargaté Afonso purchased this Villa in 1980
Why João Carlos Ascensão Gargaté Afonso chose Areias de São João
My house and the other two that make up the gated community were built from scratch by me and my two brothers. Th location of the plot is great: close to everything, with fantastic beaches very close and in a quiet area without agitation. Since its construction, and even today, they are on vacation that usually we enjoy during the month of August, a great meeting point for all the Family and Friends.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa is built in typical rustic style Algarve, in one plan to become more convenient and not a lot of work in cleaning. The interior is nice looking and very comfortable. Outside, beyond the large garden, small pine forest and large swimming pool, barbecue and have a good eating under the entrance porch table. We also have two good car parks, one of them covered. To keep clean and well landscaped exterior have treated the contract with a team that cleans and works Garden and swimming once a week in autumn and winter and twice a week in spring and summer.

We stayed for 7 days in July 2018.there was 8 adults ranging from 22 to 50. The villa had plenty of space, the grounds and pool are beautiful, the pictures don’t do justice at all. The villa is very well stocked, every cooking implement you could need, plenty of plates, glasses, mugs etc.
5 minutes walk to 2 beautiful beaches, the strip is 5 minutes walk away and old town is 20/30 mins away walking or 5 mins away on the land train.
Can’t fault anything, absolutely stunning.
A wonderful stay at a wonderful house
We spent one week at this very unique and personal home, not far from the Strip in Albufeira. The property is very well kept and inviting. We felt at home from the moment we entered the front door. The owner responded very quickly, was very helpful and did everything to make our stay pleasant. I can only recommend this house. You will not be disappointed. Brgds

The perfect spot for a family holiday
Last week (25/9-02/10) we had the privilege to stay in the holiday home of mr. Gargaté Afonso, and it was an absolute success. A very roomy and comfortable house, well built, perfectly maintained and fitted with every appliance you would want to have, even during a holiday.
The large pool was a bonus, as were the 7 sun beds.
Comfort at its best.
The owner permitted us to arrive early (due to very early flight) and even gave us the opportunity to stay at the house on the day of our departure until pickup by the airport transfer, which was as late as 4 pm. A gentle gesture which was highly appreciated by the whole family.
The location also excellent. A very nice restaurant next door, 7 minutes walk to the strip (if you like drunk tourists) and close enough to different beaches to go on foot.
The old town about 20 minutes walk, or 5 minutes in a cab.
As I said: the perfect spot for a family holiday with an excellent host.
We'll be back!
What a superb villa, so well equipped, immaculately clean with everything you could want.
Close to everything beach, shops, restaurants. The pool is first class and not overlooked. Well laid out, we were three children and three adults and the villa had plenty space for us all. Would use this again.
we stay for 10 days in July, fantastic location, fantastic house, Gargaté the owner was an absolute gentle man to deal with no problems what so ever, we have 2 children, the pool and the area was very safe, and the property was very secure for kids, the house its self was fab lovely roomy bedrooms with air-conditioning throughout, a very home from home feel to it.
we will definitely return.
all in all a fantastic holiday great house, great location and beautiful country.
Comments like this make me proud of everything I make available to my Customers and give me the strength to year after year to want to improve even more.
Lovely, large property with great pool.
A lovely property with a great pool, in a good location. My family spent a week here for my mothers 70th birthday and everyone had a great time. As it was very hot, the good-sized pool got a lot of use. The inside stayed nice and cool, but there is Air Con if it gets a bit too much at night.
The property was received clean and tidy and is very secure, for anyone that worries about that kind of thing.
The nearest beach is just a 5-10 minute walk away, Albufeira is approx. 20-30 mins, and there is a small taxi stop just a couple of hundred metres up the road in case you can't walk it or want to go further afield. There are also shops and restaurants in the nearby area and the two closest restaurants, which are basically next door, are exceptionally friendly and have great food.
Finally, the owner of the property is very helpful, 100% trustworthy and made the booking as straightforward as possible.
When the effort we make to serve well is well matched we can only be grateful. Thanks Mr. Craig
Access to housing and beaches: pedestrian, by car, motorcycle, bicycle or public transport.
Join the movement and nightlife of the main Avenida da Oura (350 m from the house) - many bars, restaurants, craft shops and other, or downtown Albufeira (2,000 m housing).
Visit the nearest beaches - Olhos d'Água, Sta Eulalia, Oura, Forte de S. João, Albufeira, Bunny, S. Rafael, Salgados ...
Has many restaurants where you can eat very closely with quality, varied prices. If you want to eat relatively well, with varied dishes, try the Local Self-Service Verde Minho (good and cheap). A place name guide, about 10 km, has a typical dish: 'Chicken of the Guide.' If you have time to explore the Algarve is convenient to have the car (own or rented). Take a drive to Marinas de Albufeira and Vilamoura. Take a day to visit the Zoomarine. We recommend a visit to the Ria Formosa (beaches and boat trip to see the wildlife of the estuary itself). If you like, have water parks nearby and a beautiful golf course at Salgados beach.
