Dine in the sun, or the shade

We provide two dining tables, so it doesn't matter who loves the sun or not!

The front patio catches the early morning rays of the sun, and holds them until an hour or so before sunset. Those members of the group who want the sun can dine out every day, but if you are protecting children from the rays of the sun, then the patio roof will keep them safe and cool.

Enjoy the Portuguese Lifestyle

At the height of summer, the Portuguese wait until the sun has set before they eat. It's a lovely time of the evening, best spent enjoying a glass of Portuguese wine or beer while the barbecue cooks the fish and/or meat. Stay up late! Walk out the Atlantic Beach boardwalk and see more stars than you have probably ever seen in your life!! Enjoy :)

This way to your own private beach!

Beach Garden

Beach Garden

A big sand box to sun yourself or let the children run amok!

The beach garden is at the other side of the house, facing the sun at sunset. Like the front patio, is also enclosed, and has a large sandy area for sunning yourself or letting the children have a play in the sand. The beach garden includes:

  • Large sandy area, perfect for sunbathing
  • Tree if you need shade
  • Dining area with table and chairs/li>
  • Inflatable 2 person kayak (inland use only!)
  • 6 Sun loungers
  • 2 Giant bean bag loungers
  • Sand toys for children

Please note: life jackets are provided, but use of the kayak is entirely at the booking party's risk!

Alternative Dining Spot

Catches even the slightest sunshine

As a family, we spend most out of season lunchtimes here. Even on New Year's Day we have had glorious sunshine, and the beach garden soaks it all up.

The dining area has its own table and chairs (but feel free to move them around to suit you), and overlooks the beach garden on its own open air patio.

We cannot stress enough how unique our villa is on Armona! Most houses are much smaller, and even the largest houses do not have the multi-aspect spacious and flexible indoor and outdoor living arrangements of our beach house.
