About Gavin Deakin

My husband and I are in our fifties and have holidayed in the Western Algarve for ten years. We have two grown up children who have both enjoyed holidays with us at Quinta da Aldeia. We enjoy being outdoors and the lifestyle in Portugal, with the great climate suits us very well for walking, running and swimming.

Gavin Deakin purchased this house in 2008

Why Gavin Deakin chose Figueira

After spending many years holidaying in the South of France we came to the Western Algarve with friends in 2005. We love the beaches, the glorious sea views, the restaurants, with the excellent fish dishes and the friendly local people. The area is very relaxing, although busier towns are within easy reach.

What makes this house unique

The house is really well situated for visiting lots of places on both the south and west coast. Lagos is a really pleasant, but busier town and the villages locally are all really lovely. Portimao is within easy driving and offers plenty of shops for those who need a little retail therapy during their holiday. Our house is light and airy and even on the hottest days, inside it is always cool and pleasant to be in. Since we bought the house in 2008 all the rooms have been updated and it is now very comfortable and pleasant to stay in. The square itself is very charming, with its' cobbles and pretty gardens.
