The house

This is a delightful little beach house ideally located on the island of Armona. No cars are allowed on the island. Transport is only by foot or bicycle, which gives a unique feeling to the place, like stepping back in time.

Add to this the fact that the only way to reach it is by ferry or boat taxi , and you have a remarkable location.

Once there, the house is very easy to find being only two minutes from the ferry dock.

The space
The Casa has recently been lovingly refurbished and redecorated to provide a calm and simple retreat. It has a lovely sea view as the beach is only ten paces away.

The nearest beach bar/café (‘Armona III’) is fourteen paces from the house, and the house is just round the corner from the ‘village’ (several bars, cafés/restaurants and a small shop).

Where you’ll be

Olhão, Faro, Portugal

This is a pretty, small island, with a variety of characterful houses on it, with some lovely beaches. One of them being the 6k long Atlantic beach where you can find privacy very easily.
Wildlife is very present - my wife recently rescued a beached dolphin by pushing him free and escorting him out to sea again!

If you want more to do the short ferry ride will take you to Olhao which has a lot to offer, and from there you can explore by bus and train as far as you like - get a bus to Seville for example...
