About Rosemary Reynolds

I am a Butcher in North Norfolk in the UK. With a large family it was the natural thing to do to build a family get away in the warmth of portugal. I personally project managed the build to ensure we got the highest level of finish. I really hope you enjoy Casa Icarus as it has been a real labour of love for us but we are over the moon with the results. Please ensure if you stay with us that you feedback so we can constantly improve your holiday experience. If you are ever up in North Norfolk pop in and see us in the High streets of Cromer and Sheringham and let me know how you got on. Enjoy as many BBq's as you can (well a butcher would say that) Happy holidays!

Rosemary Reynolds purchased this villa in 2008

Guestbook comments from the owner

'We had our best ever family holiday at Casa Icarus. We travelled from the Stansted Airport into Faro with friends. Our party consisted of 4 adults and 4 children all below 4 years of age. The transfer was straight forward and we spent all week in the pool and barbecuing. We will book again but for two weeks this time!'

'Nous avons passé de magnifiques et agréables vacances à la Casa Icarus. Nous gardons de superbes souvenirs de notre séjour en Algarve.

Cette villa est formidable, tout ce qu'il faut en confort, plaisir et tranquillilité. Nous étions ravis et complètement conquis'

Madame Sandrine: 14-28 July 2012 -Thank you so much

Nearest Restaurant
2 Kilometres
A good local restaurant on the nearby back road
Car: necessary


The nearest beach is perhaps a 10 minute drive away. By-passing the Onyria Palmares golf course you reach the long soft sandy beach of Meia Praia.

Then by-passing the old fishing town of Alvor the lovely Alvor beach stretches along to the cliffs of Tres Irmãos with their beaches and those of Prainha (maybe a 20 minute drive).


Fly into Faro Airport and then you are just 45 minutes away from the villa by car or private transfer. We think that it is essential to hire a car at this villa for shopping, restauants, the beaches and to fully explore the local area. But we have had guests who have used a shopping delivery service and taxis!
