                                                                                            We were counting down the days until our arrival on Armona. 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

The property is ideal, within minutes walk of the railway station, harbour, markets and countless cafés/bars. All modern kitchen appliances are provided along with Air conditioning (in the living room only), 2 equipped terraces to enjoy the blazing sun or the relatively cool evenings and a very useful outdoor shower. We could list a number of positives regarding our stay however they have been somewhat overshadowed by the fact that the neighbouring house was a construction site. Each morning bar one we were woken around 8.15 by the hammering and chiselling of render off the brickwork and the tile cutting/cement mixer, this unfortunately rendered the use of the terraces to a minimum. We were only able to utilise the 1st floor terrace on one occasion due to the dust and noise from the adjacent work site. I think it fair to say if we had been staying in a hotel we would definitely have moved. We have been extremely amenable however we are disappointed that we were not forewarned of the possibility that such major construction work might be ongoing during our stay. Apart from our disappointment in the noise from the neighbouring work we wouldn't hesitate to give the property 5* however we don't think our hosts appreciate just how disturbing the noise was on a daily basis. We do hope that the work is completed very soon so as not to disappoint future guests.

This provided us with the ideal opportunity. It did not disappoint in any way, in fact it exeeded our expectations. Amanda, the owner, is a very charming and helpful lady. Always ready to respond to any questions and always ready with advice and help you may need. She is very proud of her property and rightfuly so. It is immaculately presented, very clean, spacious and very well equiped. Everything you need for a worry free holiday is there, even down to a shopping trolley for you to get your supplies from the local shops! The rooftop terrace was one our favourite places. Spending many an evening with a bottle of wine watching the amazing sunsets was so relaxing. The beach is accessed by a boardwalk which takes you through a nature reserve to the ocean side of the island. It is stunning and well worth visiting, but do take your own provisions with you as there are no facilities there. If you are feeling energetic you can walk along the beach to the next village, Farol, where there are beach bars, toilets etc. Culatra has about 5 bars/restaurants and three small supermarkets there and everyone are helpful and friendly. Our favourite restaurant being the last one on the main walkway as you head to the beach. The owner speaks very good english and the food and ambience is fantastic. There are no vehicles on the island apart from the odd tractor now and then taking supplies from the harbour to the village and it is so quiet there. If you want peace and tranquility in a beautiful setting, then this is the place to come. For myself and my wife it was perfection in every way. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend 'Casa Amelia' and Culatra to anyone thinking of going to Portugal for a very relaxing holiday. We will definately be booking this holiday home again in the not too distant future. Paul & Debbie Bennett Widnes UK
