Make A Holiday Rental Villa in Armona Island, Portugal, Your Home Away From Home

Much excitement as my wife, and 2 children [5 and 3] were meeting up with family we hadn't seen in a good few months. We were not disappointed! The ferry ride across from Olhao was an adventure itself and the kids loved it. Luckily we were met by my parents at the port on Armona who assisted with the bags for the walk to the house. Bit of a distance in the midday sun for the kids so ended up piggy-backing but no major issues. After a few days on Armona the walking becomes second nature. The house is very well appointed with everything one could need. Was very clean and beds made up. We braaied every night with fresh fish / seafood / espatadas bought at the market in Olhao [South African for barbecue ;-)]. Did the shopping trip twice in a week to get the bulk of the fresh food - the shop close to the house has almost all the basics you need albeit at a higher price. We explored all corners of the island in our week stay - for us the Atlantic beach was the place to be. The kids did love the lagoon area / inland lake where they spent hours catching small fish, collecting hermit crabs in very safe surroundings. We popped into Antonio's on our walk back to the house most afternoons for a cold beer, and an ice cream for the kids. Didn't eat there so can't comment on the food. We did eat at Armona 4 near the ferry port on our last evening and had a great experience. Food and setting was brilliant. We were lucky enough to be in Olhao for the Seafood Festival which we thoroughly enjoyed - crabs, prawns, oysters where amazing! The only negative I can think of was the poor state of the scooters and kids bicycles - were were hoping to let the kids use them to get around the island but were in a rather bad state. Overall I'd highly recommend Maria's lovely home to anyone looking to escape from the crowds and enjoy a relaxing beach holiday away from it all. We will be back in a heart beat! Maria was an amazing host, quick to respond to our requests- thank you! Steve

Staying in this well-equipped house is a delight and its location - a couple of minutes' walk from the beach - satisfies tiny tots enough to keep adults very happy indeed. Armona may be small but each visit leaves us thinking there's still more to be revealed. Hopefully we'll be making these discoveries in years to come.

The hot tub on the roof was a great place to end the day, or start it most days as well. Location wise couldn't be better only 5 mins from the village. The train is a fast and cheap way to see the neighbouring area. The small complex the villa is on is clean, quiet and just what we like. Certainly looking to go back, three weeks would be even better.
