The Area
Armação de Pera - History
Not very long ago this town was nothing more than a collection of small shacks where the local residents from the nearby village of Pera used to maintain their fishing boats. It is quite probable that the name "Armação" is a link with the distant past of the great Tuna fishing industry that existed along the Algarve from the 15th Century and before. This later fell under the protection of a small 18th Century fort that still remains in part to this day.

Armação de Pera - Description
Nowadays, the town is mainly composed of the old town in the east and the more recently developed part of the town to the west which is mainly holiday apartments built over bars and restaurants on the ground floor. In the three summer months the town is exceptionally popular with tourists but outside the top of the season it offers a wonderful peaceful holiday location. Meanwhile, the nearby rural village of Pera remains as a reminder of the un-spoilt typical sleepy Algarve. Boasting one of the finest longest sandy beaches in the Algarve this is a popular location for tourists. On the beach close to the eastern side of the town are a number of fish restaurants that pride themselves on serving fresh fish. The spread of building from Armação de Pera has been mainly to the west with the creation of several holiday apartment complexes above the very charming beaches of Senhora da Rocha.

Local Attractions
Places near to Armação de Pera are the market towns of Algoz, Alcantarilha, Porches and the inland historic and attractive city of Silves with its magnificent walls and castle. For the golfer, the nearest course about 5 minutes drive with many others in the vacinity. Also great for those with an interest in fishing, with some choosing to fish from the beach and others opting for premier lake fishing around an hour inland with 100lb catfishes regularly being caught.

More recently the New International race track has been constructed just 20 mins from the apartment. There are also 3 waterparks nearby, the closest is only 5 mins drive. Excellent shopping facilities can be found at the nearby "Algarve Shopping" complex about 10 minutes drive away with its free parking and international food court. There are also many small local private shops selling arts & crafts and artisana.

The choice of restaurants locally is also amazing with a wide range of exquisite tastes and international cuisine to suit all tastes. Fish is, of course, the local speciality but you can also find a great indian and chinese nearby to satisfy more familiar tastes.

For the wine lover the Alantejo region just north of the algarve is a wonderful area to explore and experience the "real" Portugal

Family from Stockport, United Kingdom Aug 2015

What a lovely, spacious apartment in a fantastic resort - so much nicer that Albufeira! Only 200m from the beach, which is several miles long - golden sand and very clean. Lots of nice bars and restaurants nearby. There is a small minimarket nearby and a larger supermarket about 5 mins drive away - or a 10-15 min walk if you decide not to hire a car (we didn't and we did not miss it). We would definitely recommend both the apartment and resort. The only small negative is the lack of access to a swimming pool. There is a large pool within walking distance (called H2O) which is lovely and large but it costs about £4 per person to use for the day. Still with such a lovely beach on the doorstep a pool is not that necessary.

Friends from Stockholm, Sweden Jun 2015

Excellent stay! Perfect apartment close to the beach. Great restaurants within walking distance. A quiet area, perfect for the type pf holiday we where after. We had a great stay and I could really recommend this apartment.

Family from Derry, United Kingdom Aug 2014

Fully equiped like home from home.We missed not having a pool although the local beach is 2 mins walk away and stretches for 6 miles of golden sand with local bars and restaurants. Loads to see an do, zoomarine is a must!!! Local taxis are very reasonable also

Family from Ramnicu Valcea, Romania Aug 2013

Comfortable apartment, with lot of space that we really enjoyed it.
Although that is a very quiet area, it is also close to the local tourist attractions such as: beaches, restaurants, promenade, etc.
Being in the middle of the Algarve, it is useful to have a car if you want to enjoy most of the beauties of the region.
Thanks a lot to the owner and the staff for providing this accommodation.

Best regards,
Robert, Laszlo, Loredana and Alina

We had a wicked time at this amazing apartment. We were surprised by how big and comfortable it was. Although not right in the heart of Albufeira, it was nearby and we found it easy to go into Albufeira for the nighlife. Local town was great, many facilities, the large public pool across the road was also great fun. Apartment had every possible luxury, great accommodation!

....... Simply amazing. We had a fab time in your apartment. Couldn't believe the quality of furnishings, you've thought of everything. Anyone holidaying in your apartment will want for nothing! Super comfy beds too. We've been doing the self-catering thing now for 14 years and this is by far the best apartment we have ever stayed in. Great Job!!! -- Trish Bell

Just got back from Portugal and had to dro p you a line and say how satisfied we were with your apartment and the whole holiday as a whole. Great location, so close to the beach. Beautiful unspoilt town (we loved the little church), great restaurants. Everything was just perfect for us. We can't believe you let people stay in your home, its so beautiful. -- Martin & Jean Cunningham

Fantastic, Gobsmaked, Thoroughly amazed!!! Beautiful apartment, everything was PERFECT. Had a wonderful fortnight in Armacao. Never left the town once. We found everything we needed and your recommendation for that restaurant was spot on, thanks. Although we hired a car, we didn't end up using it, everything was within walking distance. Thanks again for a magnificent holiday. -- J. Nash

Hi Tom, Just wanted to let you know we had a fabulous holiday in your apartment. The town was absolutely stunning, just the right balance. We couldn't believe our eyes when we first walked into the lounge, it was so big! My Husband thought we'd be given the wrong apartment. The kids had a great time and found plenty to do (hurray for playstation). The local beach was amazing, so large and yet so clean. The property managers who showed us round were really helpful too. Hope to be back with you next year. -- Dave & Sue

We absolutely loved your apartment and Amacao de Pera. The beds were so comfy that it the apartment hadn't been in such a convenient and lovely location i don't think i'd have wanted to get out of them! Rebecca from your management company was also extremely informative and we have no complaints what so ever about our entire stay. -- V. Hewitt
