Lovely relaxing beach holiday
We went to Armona as a family of five with late-teen kids. The property suited us perfectly, with plenty of space for everyone. The bathrooms and kitchen are very modern, the bedrooms are more basic, but fine. The kitchen is very well equipped.
The outdoor area is beautiful, with areas of sun and shade throughout the day, plenty of seating and space for cooking, eating and lounging.
The location of the property is amazing, just a short walk from the beach and the ferry. We found Armona island very relaxing, friendly and unpretentious. The nearest beach is on the lagoon, and tends to be busier, although it never felt crowded. The Atlantic beach was much quieter; it stretches for approximately 4 miles and is deserted in parts, very beautiful.
Olhāo, the town on the mainland, was interesting; a working fishing port with a lively Saturday market, lots of opportunities for boat trips to the surrounding islands.
Access to the property was surprisingly easy. We got an uber from Faro airport to the ferry, took the boat across to Armona, then it was a short walk from the ferry to the property.
Telma was extremely helpful and kind, and kept us well informed throughout the booking process and during our stay.
Third time staying in this casa and improves every time. Fabulous bathrooms and the new changes only go to enhance the facilities.
Definately recommend :-)
Lovey large house
We go every year, 4 woman to spend a week together and catch up. We love spending time on the terrace and kitchen cooking. They have installed 2 bathrooms which is really helpful for 4 ladies and the kitchen is modern and clean. Telma the owner is great and can speak English. We hope to be returning for many years to come.
Wonderful time spent at your home. Just what we needed. Beautiful island, natural, peaceful place. Always helpful Telma. Thank you!
Fantastic place, have all you need for summer holidays. Would definitely recommend it to my friends, and will return next year if possible. The owners were so nice and very easy to contact with. Really enjoyed it :-) Thanks Muito obrigado :-) Angela e Marco Bandarra
Thank you "Angela e Marco" for your comments; we are pleased you liked the house and what it had to offer particularly as you had all the family with you. :)

Thank you also for being the perfect tenants, the house looked so well after your stay.

The sands of sight is great for those who like long walks.
The villa is situated in a quiet part of the island, about 50 steps from the beach (Ria Formosa Natural Park).
The island is constituted by sandy beaches and in the south of the island (beach of the coast facing to the Atlantic Ocean) it has the blue flag.
