A home with modern comforts on an enchanting island

  • 5 of 5

We visited Ilha da Armona as day trippers 4 years ago and promised ourselves we'd stay on the island next time. 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.

The jewel of Armona.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a holiday home. Over the years we have always stayed in hotels. So I did a lot of googling and it certainly paid off. I picked a gem of a house and its owners Celso and Monica are incredible. Monica took us under her wing and from the helpful emails etc made sure all was perfect for us. The photographs on the website do not do it justice, you have to see it in person. I am not going to list anything eg kitchen bathroom because everything is up to hotel standard. Monicas grandparents lived in the house so many years ago and I am sure they would be very proud to see the wonderful modern house that we can all enjoy. The house is ideally situated on the island , if you look at a map it is right in the middle in the trees. We fell in love with Armona and this house, and will definitely return next year. Thank you Celso and Monica. Catherine.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this holiday home for two weeks in May 2015; we were very happy with the layout and facilities provided. The home is clean, modern, spacious and well equipped. The beds are of a good quality, the kitchen is well equipped without being cluttered, the WiFi connection is fast (15mBit/s) and the terrace is very spacious and offers plenty shade if desired. The shower is good.

The nearest beach is 2min away(suitable for swimming and sunbathing); the port (5min) and longer Atlantic beach (10min) are an easy walk away.

The owner is efficient and easy to deal with(she didn't withhold any deposit despite us accidentally burning a hole in her tablecloth).

Overall I would thoroughly recommend renting this property

Excelentes férias em família

  • 5 of 5

Casa muito bem situada, a boa distância da praia, ria, restaurantes e supermercados.

A casa tem todo o conforto e privacidade para passar umas boas férias. Os proprietários são excelentes a receber e tudo fizeram para que nada faltasse.

Já passo férias nesta casa há uns anos, o que demonstra a minha satisfação, e por isso achei justo fazer este comentário para que outras pessoas possam ficar esclarecidas sobre esta óptima opção.

Mais uma vez obrigado à Mónica e ao Celso pelo excelente acolhimento.

Tudo 5*! Passámos uma semana fantástica nesta casa, nada a apontar, tem todas as comodidades com bastante privacidade, nada foi deixado ao acaso, até a caixa de primeiros socorros! adorámos o terraço, onde fizemos todas as refeições.

Recomendamos vivamente este alojamento e esperamos voltar no próximo ano.

Aos proprietários damos as felicitações por saberem receber tão bem os seus hóspedes e estarem sempre disponiveis. Obrigada Mónica pela sua simpatia e atenção.
