This attractive and spacious villa was only constructed 10 years ago so has therefore been built using modern bathrooms and kitchen fittings. The owner wanted a special holiday home for his family and so has included many «extras» to make their holidays enjoyable as possible. The main items are the heated swimming pool and the air conditioning but the villa also includes a large plasma screen with an internet box for BBC and ITV, and a DVD in the spacious sitting /dining room, surround sound to the pool area, plasma screens in all the bedrooms, and an outdoor table tennis table. A large shaded terrace with table and chairs for dining out, a built-in barbecue area, and sun-beds for 10 people mean that everyone can take advantage of some outdoor living while on holiday.
The villa is set in its own fenced-in mature garden, with a large area of lawn bordered with many flowering shrubs and trees.
The beautiful blue tiled swimming pool has an infinity side flowing over the far side wall, the other side bordered by terracing with space for everyone, partly shaded by dramatic OZ shades for some of the party.

The villa is centrally situated almost midway between Portimão and Lagos, both market towns with good shopping and boating facilities. The nearest shops are in the small local town of Odiáxere. This is not a 5 minute drive away in the Lagos direction and has a few basic shops, a chemist, a bank and both daily and monthly markets. There are also some restaurants/cafés and bars.

On the Portimão side, not a 10-minute drive away, there is the Hotel Penina and the famous Penina Golf Club with three golf courses, tennis courts and hotel amenities. The resorts of Alvor and Praia da Rocha are a little further on, both of which have lots of bars and restaurants and fine sandy beaches.

South from Odiáxere a road leads to the Onyria Palmares golf course (this is a spectacular layout designed by Trent Jones jr. and has a series of three 9-hole courses overlooking the sea).
By-passing the golf course, the road reaches the golden sandy beach of Meia Praia to Lagos.
Several other golf courses are within a 30-45 minute drive.

The villa is both tastefully and very comfortably furnished in a stylish uncluttered way as a family holiday home. With all the«extras» this villa is a great choice for those families and friends wishing to relax as a group together but near to great beaches and centrally situated for sporting activities and visiting the various Algarve attractions.

Casa Icarus

Well.... absolutely amazing villa!
Highly recommend to anyone!
We were a party of 10 people and we have just returned after celebrating my 50th Birthday here.
The villa is absolutely beautiful and there was plenty of room for everybody.
Each bedroom had patio doors opening up on to the pool and the view is absolutley amazing!
The kitchen is so fully equipped you do not want for anything they have thought of everything!
The pool is lovely you could just stay in it all day and look at the stunning views!
We used a great taxi service with 2 mini buses to get us into Lagos and Alvor.
A perfect stay we were all so pleased with the villa, we couldnt have asked for anymore!
Best birthday ever at Casa Icarus! Thank you!
