About João Carlos Ascensão Gargaté Afonso

My wife and I live on the outskirts of Lisbon, a city name Carnaxide. My wife is a preschool teacher and I'm Retired. In my working life I worked in a large national group having created it and Chairman of a Company from the area of Information Systems, which is also the area of my academic training. 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.

A wonderful stay at a wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

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

Wonderful villa in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We have rented the villa for a group holiday for 7 people. The bedrooms and bathrooms were all very clean, spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is really well equipped so if you want to spend your time cooking on holiday, you will find everything you might need. There is also a dishwasher to make the cleaning up easier. The barbecue is also great, perfect for dining in. The pool area is amazing, with comfy sunloungers and a perfect size pool. It is everything you can want from a villa. The house is decorated very tastefully in a traditional style and it is ideal for a relaxing holiday.

Location wise, the shops are 200m away, fantastic beaches a 8-10 minute walk away, the party strip 10 minutes away and the old-town 20 minuets away. We had everything we needed in walking distance.

The owner was really helpful and responded promptly to all enquiries.

We had a fantastic time in Albufeira and the villa played a huge part in it. Highly recommend this villa for a group or family holiday!

Lovely villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 (age ranges from 10 years to 72 years) had a great time at this villa. It is very well located within walking distance of beaches, restaurants and The Strip, and is also only a few minutes stroll to get on the tourist bus to go into the Old Town. The villa is very well appointed, and spotlessly clean. It has a good size pool and lovely very well kept gardens. I would definitely like to go there again! The owners are also very responsive to emails and communication was very good - particularly as English is not their first language, They also provided us with maps of the local area prior to us leaving the UK. We couldn't have asked for anything more!

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

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.

The perfect spot for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

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.

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.
