Casa Flamingo has recently been refurbished to a very high standard. The bright, airy house consists of 3 bedrooms, 1 shower room, a brick built BBQ & a central living and kitchen area. Outside there is a sofa and & table & chairs. There is also a large roof terrace with another dining area, sofa & armchairs and sun loungers. Just a short stroll from child friendly beaches including a tidal lake. Shop, restaurant and playground 2 mins walk!
Unfortunately I am unable to accept any pets!

Other things to note
Car: not necessary
Armona is a little island paradise in the midst of the Rio Formosa National Park. No cars, no supermarkets, no ATMs and not a lot of people - but loads of sunshine and beautiful accessible beaches alongside the sea and lagoons - and the ultimate peace and tranquillity. There are of course shops for food, drink and essential groceries and some wonderful restaurants and bars on the island some of them open all year round but if you want a bit more night life, this is not the place for you! You can however hop onto a ferry to Olhao which is a lively little town full of bars and restaurants and return to Armona later on by taxi boat!

If you like walking, it takes around 2 hrs to walk to the other end of the island and if you want to see a bit of the local wildlife, why not join Nuno, a biologist, who is based on the island on one of his King Chamaeleon Eco Tours - he can take you in his boat around the lagoons and inlets of the Rio Formosa which stretch for 37 miles along the coast.

I have travelled and lived in many different countries but when I visited a friend who was living in Olhao I was so captivated with the place that I decided to get my own place here. I was extremely lucky to find a house on the magical island of Armona. There is so much to do here and you don't need a car as the station in Olhao can take you wherever you want in Portugal!
