Our holiday was precious to us and we did lots of research to find a home with modern comforts in a great location. We found it! This home has been in Monica's family for generations and is their holiday retreat too. It has been thoughtfully equipped and would be great for couples and families with 3 bedrooms, a large shower in the main bathroom and a great kitchen. Monica has installed air con in the main living room/ kitchen and 2 of the bedrooms, creating a cool and welcoming space after a day on the beach. The windows are new with insect mesh screens - an essential addition which we didn't notice on other properties. We spent a lot of time on the veranda. we drank coffee at 8am in warm sunshine and watched the stars from the loungers at night. It's a peaceful location about a third of the way from the ferry terminal and Atlantic beach. Opposite King Chameleon for those that know the island. It's off the main path so you'll have lots of privacy while enjoying views over the Ria Formosa towards Fuseta. It inspired us to get up early and explore the island before heading to the beach. Your host is wonderful. Monica cares about her home, the island and your neighbours. She wants you to have the best holiday and describes Armona as "paradise". She communicates by email and eventually we swapped numbers so we could meet up and be guided to the property. You'll love meeting her and she'll share lots of useful tips (best restaurants, where to buy bread and essentials etc.) Thank you for a great holiday Monica and we'll see you soon.

Superb balcony, very quiet & peaceful. Weather was extremely hot while we were there so sometimes it was too hot to eat out on balcony so we took the picnic table & chairs to small balcony opposite front door ! Then we got a great view of countryside! Gary helped us arrange transfers from airport with Wendy & Jeff, which was fraught free & they were very friendly, helpful & knowledgeable. All in all we had a great holiday. I even enjoyed using washing machine!!!
