Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Armona Island - Robin's Nest

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, open plan mezzanine living & sleeping area

Inside the villa is a open-plan lounge with fireplace and brand new modern kitchen. Off this area there are two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Look up and you can see the high ceiling and a mezzanine open plan room - up here you will find another 2 single beds and more generous living space with comfy sofas and TV with DVD player. The family bathroom has a fabulous 'indoor pool' style bath that you can fill up and relax in. Outside the villa there's a grassy front garden and terrace. At the back of the villa there is an enclosed terrace with tables and chairs and a brick BBQ. There is also another grassy garden and views towards the Ria Formosa and the beautiful sunsets. The best part of the villa? The upstairs wrap around balcony and terrace with views across the Ria Formosa towards the mainland. At night time the coast line twinkles with lights and is very mesmerizing. There are all the modern facilities you need including washing machine, tumble dryer, flat TV, etc.

Armona Island (or Ilha de Armona to the Portuguese) is a magical, special place and most people want to keep this a secret. I would like to keep it to myself too but the magic is worth sharing. We were looking for a holiday house on the more lively Tavira Island (Ilha de Tavira - voted top 10 beach holidays in the world) but there were no villas to rent.... only a campsite. We then stumbled upon the little beach villas on Armona Island, the next island along and far less commercial but the BEACHES are just as great.... and we booked a little cottage immediately.

A short walk along the main footpath that leads from the lagoon beaches to the large sandy beach and you will come to the children's playground and Cafe Convivio - our little villa is just behind here. As you approach you will walk down a little pathway lined with pepper and mimosa trees. The whitewashed walls of the villa can be seen tucked down the pathway backing on to the tidal lagoon...and if you are lucky enough to be there when there is a really high tide the water will lap at the back of the garden!

Robins Nest on Armona Island (Illa Da Armona) is a perfect retreat for families, singles, couples - anyone who needs to 'get away from it all' and those who intend to write that long thought of book. All your inspiration is here and its paradise.

The Algarve

Sun, fun, history and culture...

The Algarve offers guaranteed sunshine, stunning countryside and coastline, excellent food and wine, UNESCO world heritage sites, lively historic villages, and as much activity as you want.

This area is particularly popular with golfers who enjoy an all year-round play in a fabulous climate. Further more, they have 30 high-class golf courses to choose from.

Other activities in the area include an array of watersports such as surfing and sailing or take a boat trip along the picturesque coast. Alternatively, head inland to hike in beautiful pine forests. The Serra de Monchique hill trails will reward you with stunning views as you make your way to the Algarve's highest point. Bring your own or hire bikes locally, whilst birdwatchers will enjoy an array of species. There's even horse trekking in the area for the equestrians.

For those who are after culture, The Algarve has a number of sites reflecting its history which includes Roman and Arab invasions. Medieval churches abound in the historical villages which often have colourful markets. The Tavira area is relatively untouched and remains typically Portuguese. Further more, along the coast there are picturesque islands and beaches waiting to be discovered.

All this plus a lush countryside full of peaceful olive groves, long-standing vineyards and farms which have been worked for generations.

Ilha da Armona / Armona Island:

The beach is located at the western end of the Armona Island, near the Barra Grande and there’s a small village of fishermen and shellfish gatherers. To get to the beach there are regular careers boat from Faro, Olhão and Fuseta, which takes approximately 15minutes, then you must go through the maze of sand and mud of the Ria Formosa. The sand barrier is consistent and very wide, the beach is out of sight and extends to the east, to the Fuseta beach, providing moments of tranquility for those who enjoy hiking or have a private boat. The sand banks along the stripe delimit delicious natural pools. Here, we can also observe the rich flora and aromatic fields of sand dunes and enjoy the warm winds from the east and enjoy the invariably tones of the fiery sunsets.

The currents along the stripe are generally very strong, caution is required.
