Firstly, getting to Armona was easy despite traveling with three little children. Short taxi ride from Faro airport to Olhao and then a 10 minute ferry ride to the island. Rebecca was in contact with us constantly to advise us how to get there and made sure her friend was waiting for us with the keys and to help us find the house.

Armona is a beautiful place. An island owned by the navy now a national park protected from development. There are no cars in the island, no hotels, no resorts, no buildings higher than two floors. North beach facing the mainland is one minute from the house. South beach on the Atlantic is 20 minutes walk with children. But this beach is amazing with miles and miles of sand and sea. Children complained the first time walking there but after that they couldn't wait to get there everyday.

Most of the houses are owned by locals so neighbours are nice and evenings are quiet. Lots of alleyways and footpaths, a real maze for children to wonder around and have fun. There are 4-5 restaurants/cafes. Our favourite is the one near the big beach. Lots of space, nice food and lovely people. Also it has wi-fi for people that must be in touch and for those who need to instantly share everything with the world.

The house is nice. Everything that you need is there including towels. Big balcony with a barbecue and a shower cabin outside the house. A front garden with a swing for children was very useful keeping them entertained. Three good size bedrooms with seven beds and a sofa bed in the living room makes it possible two families to share the space.

Few shops in the island have everything you need but I would recommend people go to Olhao (mainland) and visit the fish market on Saturdays. Plenty of fresh fish at very good prices. Also i would recommend to go to a supermarket and stock up with supplies cheaper than the shops in the island.

We stayed two weeks and feels we got a proper holiday just as I had them when I was a child. I am recommending this place to all my friends and everyone. Will definitely go back again.
