Armona Island is a car-free holiday destination, with Portuguese bars and restaurants and shops on a sandy island. Our house has 4 bedrooms, a large indoor living area, and two outdoor living areas (one covered, one a sunny beach garden). Book now!

The space
Our 4 bedroom villa is just 50 metres from the beach. Please ignore the map location - we are 3 houses from the waterfront!

Inside the house has 3 double bedrooms and one single bedroom, two bathrooms with toilets, sinks and showers, plus a large living / dining / kitchen area. All beds have foam mattress toppers, and we provide clean sheets and jumbo towels once a week, and all bedrooms and the main living area are fan cooled. The house has unlimited mobile wifi (Internet), satellite TV (freeview), iPod dock, CD player, plus a selection of books and DVDs.

Outside there are two living areas. The front patio is very spacious, and has two dining tables, 8 chairs, a built in barbecue, an outside sink, an outside shower (solar heated), a washing sink (get sand off shoes etc). Half of the patio is covered (the sun at noon is pretty strong!), and half not (perfect for dining under the stars or sunbathing). The rear living area is a beach garden with a large patio with parasol, secluded with a massive sand pit, plus a selection of sun loungers and two large bean bags to relax into.

Guest access
Our house is your house! You get access to everything including the sun loungers (6), super size bean bag chairs (2), barbecue, wifi, massive patio, beach garden, plus all of the kitchen utensils, pots, pans etc.

If you stay longer than a week, we will bring you replacement king size house towels and fresh bed linen.

Other things to note
There are no cars on Armona Island. You can park in Olhao, but unless you are here for a very long stay, save the car hire money and spend it on the very inexpensive wine, food, and shops.

Two of the restaurants take credit cards on the Island but do bring cash (Olhao has a number of banks and cash machines).

When you first visit, shop lightly for just a day or two. Then, if you do plan to use our kitchen and bbq then take the wheeled trolley into Olhao markets and get fresh fish, meat and veg (mornings are the best time, and be back on the ferry at lunch time for a full day on the beach).

Location

Armona Island, Olhao, Portugal

There is a cafe / bar / children's playground just a block away (30 metres).

Our house is just off the main path, that goes from the Ferry Terminal to the Atlantic Beach (we are just about half way between).

At the Ferry Terminal are 4 restaurants/bars, all serving great Portuguese and international food. The main island shop is also there, and in the peak summer months a number of locals sell fresh fish in tiny shops along the main path.

The Atlantic Beach is the longest Island beach, and has Restaurant St. Antonio plus a beach bar right on the waterfront selling cocktails, beer, wine, sun loungers, light snacks and meals in the summer months.

The main town of Olhao has great restaurants, everything from amazing sushi to European seafood specialists and some nice pizza parlours. You can also shop for continental style clothing there, and of course the town has two huge seafront markets.

Beyond Armona are other islands, which form the Rio Formosa National Park (yes, you will be staying on a national park!)

My wife Ruth and I have a lovely life in Whitstable, England. We enjoy live music, travel, dancing, good food, and good company. Most of my life has been working for technology companies, and I still develop websites and mobile applications. I am the only person (that I know of) that has single handedly written a guidebook on the whole of the USA. My favourite saying "Perfect is good enough!" My favourite place on Earth? Where ever I am at that moment :)
