From the moment you open the art deco style doors, it is evident that this fabulous property has been designed with careful attention to detail. A contemporary, open plan layout in the lounge and dining area is complemented by high quality furnishings to create a sophisticated atmosphere that resounds throughout the property. Upstairs, fitted wardrobes and chic furnishings in the bedrooms provide an effective contrast against the bold, cutting edge designs in the bathrooms, while a stylish games room with table tennis, pool table and lounge area is available for your enjoyment on the lower ground floor. Outside, ample refuge from the midday sun is provided. A covered terrace complete with rattan lounge furniture overlooks the private pool and a covered dining area with built-in barbecue is located to the side of the villa. Idalecio occupies a prime location in the sought after area of Sao Rafael where a beach and a small selection of restaurants and bars can be found within a short walk.

    • Mr Fry, August 2011

      This villa is absolutely stunning. If I was being hyper critical I would like to see WiFi in the property and Sky Sports in the TV package! The pool is also a little small considering the size of the property.

    • Mr Wood, July 2011

      The location was ideal, near a lovely beach and not too far from Albuferia.

London Family (all grown adults
We had a magnificent stay!
However there were two things that stopped the stay from being ten stars- we had over 6hours without running water one of the days and it would be great if the pool was heated!

Excellent villa spoilt by bad smell in ensuite bathroom which had a jacuzzi where a bath/shower would have done. Downstairs shower also blocked solid with hair.

The villa was superb . It was very clean. The only bad comment was a cockerel next door which woke us up early.

This is our second visit to Idalecio, it is a lovely villa in a quite location with easy access to amenities too. The single beds are slightly hard, but this wouldn't stop me recommending this villa to anyone. We would certainly stay in this villa again if we travel to the Algarve in the future.
