Winter breaks on Armona - If you fancy a get away from it all winter break, then look no further than the island of Armona off the Algarve coast. Perfect for summer and out of season winter holidays - offers a selection of superb self catering villas and beach houses for holiday rent.

There are special rates for out of season holidays in winter, spring and autumn.

Although Olhão and the mainland are visible, you might be light years away. There are no cars, no traffic, none of the noises of everyday life, just the sound of lapping water and the patter of footsteps. A Toytown with all modern amenities, but the atmosphere of a century ago.

Armona island is just a 10 minute ferry ride from Olhão.

The habitants who live on Armona are a small community of fishermen and their families, but visitors are always made welcome and can taste the daily catches in the restaurants by Armona island's beautiful beaches.
