  • This was our second visit to Armona. The villa is wonderful, situated right in the centre of the island, close to the little shop and children’s play area, and only a few steps away from the laguna beach. The villa is extremely well equipped, very well maintained, and was lovely and clean, with two excellent bathrooms and plenty of hot water. The outside shower was a bonus to get all the sand off after the day at the beach, and the kayak was great fun on the sheltered lagoon. Being off the main path the villa was lovely and quiet in the evening and the outside rocker was very relaxing with a chilled glass of wine in the evening. The only noise in the morning was that of the quad bike, which signalled the delivery of the fresh bread and croissants to the local shop, and off we would go ( in pyjamas) to pick up our breakfast supplies. The booking process was easy and efficient and the customer service we received was excellent. Thank you for a great holiday and I would recommend this property without hesitation.Rating5/5
  • The island and this villa are wonderful! By far the best equipped villa we have stayed in with vast amounts of space. The bbq area was lovely and most of the time at the villa, apart from when sleeping, was spent around this area . Both the Atlantic beach and the ” Ferry” beach had lovely sand and were never crowded. The only drawback with the Atlantic beach was the hike to the loo.{editor note: the beach bar has toilets now} The inland lake was a favourite place, mostly secluded, and the area between the lake and the lagoon was like a desert island. I recommend Carlos’ restaurant by the ferry and the sardines and clams were special. ... A “must see” is the fish and vegetable market in Olhao, brimming with activity and a great place to get stuff for the Barbie. On one occasion we bought swordfish steaks that were so big, we could only get them on the Barbie two at a time!! The taste was fantastic. We will always have very fond memories of Vivenda Marinho and Armona . Go and enjoy!Rating5/5
  • We had such a great time in this beautiful Villa on Armona Island! Thank you so much Ruth and Brian for sharing it with us. We love to remember our relaxing beach holiday, peaceful long walks,sunbathing, visits to Olhao market and the barbecues, living like the locals but with all the comfort you could wish for including wireless internet access ( mostly for our sons) If this is what you look for, book this place – i am sure you will love it as much as we did!Rating5/5
  • ...The villa itself is very comfortable, and nicely appointed. For me, highpoints were a shaded garden to the front framed by bourgainvillea; the outdoor barbecue; great showers and – perhaps more esoterically – a good feeling to the place. More prosaically, it was beautifully clean and we were given excellent instructions and support in finding it – even to the point of being met on our arrival in Olhau and a water taxi secured for our trip to the island. I shall go back to Armona without a shadow of a doubt, and if it should be in Autumn again I would be perfectly happy. We enjoyed plenty of sunshine, and the experience was quite magical. This villa is a base from which to enjoy all of these things.Rating5/5
  • The villa was great, well equipped with loads of indoor and outdoor space. There were only 5 of us but I do think if 8 were staying one bathroom may prove a bit of a problem. {editor note: we added a second bathroom straight away!}Super kayak for use on the lagoon, great beaches and very friendly locals. The villa had everything you could possibly need and we will be returning! The villa was so great we barbequed there everynight and saved a fortune on eating out.

  • Once we found the house and opened the shutters we found it to be plenty spacious and nicely furnished and decorated. The three double bedrooms were big enough for us and the kids bunk room worked perfectly for them too. The two bathrooms were clean and modern and we never seemed to run out of hot water for the 6 showers each night and morning! The kitchen was well equipped with pots, pans and the like and everything we needed was close to hand. To be honest we spent most of our time cooking on the outdoor barbecue, which was easy to light and gave everything that lovely holiday taste. As we were two families with kids holidaying together we never felt like we were on top of each other and there was plenty of space to accommodate all 6 of us in comfort. ... On the island there is a small tidal lagoon which would fill up overnight and warm gently throughout the day. The kids loved it, as the majority of it is only knee/thigh deep with only the very center being much more than 6 feet in depth.Rating5/5
