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

If you are looking for a relaxing vacation with good weather on a pedestrian only island, then you should consider a rental villa on Armona Island. A quick boat ride from the mainland will see you leave the tourist crowds behind, and emerge on a beautiful island which is wholly owned by a National Park. The key to preparing to take a holiday in self catering accommodation on Armona Island is to pack light! Remember, you will need to wheel/carry your cases from the ferry to your villa yourself!

Things to Do on Holiday in Armona Island, Portugal

The main activities whilst on holidays on Armona Island revolve around the sea, sand and good weather. Sunbathing and swimming are ever popular, as are numerous other water sports such as snorkelling and wind surfing. Hiking the dunes is also another good way to see the island, and if all that seems a little too energetic, then a game of cards in a restaurant or bar may be just the thing to unwind in the afternoon. Some local markets stocking fresh produce are ideal for shopping at in order to prepare your own dinner in your self catering accommodation on Armona Island.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      We have travelled to Portugal every year for the last 30 years; we visited Fuseta for the first time in February. Accommodation excellent. Beautifully appointed and in an ideal position for eating out locally on the front. Location: Unusual for us as the views were across the creek and then the lagoon as opposed to directly on the seafront. This afforded some lovely walks, especially if you are interested in wild life. Ideally situated for access to local restaurants and shops. A mere 5 minute walk will take you to lovely beach bar with magnificent views. Equally, a 5 minute walk away you can pick up the local train to nearby towns. Tavira is well worth visiting. Eating out was a revelation! It has been many years since we have been away on holiday where the food in restaurants is very inexpensive and invariably local produce (charcoal grilled in front of you) with the obvious choice local fish. Wines and beers are also excellent value for money. There are no "posh" restaurants to tempt you so your euros will go a long way! Fuseta is a charming and very traditional fishing village well worth visiting. The apartment was extremely comfortable and beautifully furnished. Only negative for us as a couple was the view from the lounge terrace was a little restricted so there was only one spot where we could sit to overlook the creek/lagoon etc. There is a beautifully laid out roof terrace with excellent views but it is accessed by leaving the apartment and going up two flights of stairs. We are in our 60s and didn't trust ourselves to come back down after one too many glasses of wine up there! One small recommendation to the owner: the train timetable was very out of date which we discovered on arrival at the station and had an hour to kill. It didn't faze us because we enjoyed coffees in the "square" at ludicrously low prices in this day and age. We would like to thank the owners for their excellent support throughout the booking including Alvaro to welcome us and arrange transport back to the airport.

House is more than adequate for a holiday away from home , area has plenty to do for all the family . Owners are most welcoming and gave all the information on the house that was needed, advised just to get in contact if there was a problem, there was none with this house. Will definitely be back.
