Tennis Facilities: The tennis court is a modern all weather hard court. Step out of your room and stroll onto the court. No booking, no hot car journeys, no hassle.
Dinner and Lunch Parties: Dinner at the villa can be provided by us. Forget the hassle of trying to find a restaurant table for twelve, eat better food for less at one of our fantastic dinner parties. We do the shopping, prepare, cook and serve a scrumptious three course dinner, and then clear up and leave you with a clean kitchen afterwards. Nobody gets the short straw with driving, the children won't get bored, and you won't be made to feel it's time to leave, when the staff want to go to bed!
How about a fabulous Paella, Salad and Sangria lunch. All prepared and cooked for you and served either poolside or on the dining terrace.
And, if you would like to go out for dinner and leave the little ones behind, for the evening, then we can make them a light supper and baby sit for the evening.
“Fantastic large villa, very well presented, great tennis court. Very relaxing.”
Just come home from a very relaxing 10 days at Vivenda Summertime.We have been going to the Algarve for 13 years and this villa is by far the best. The owners have made this a home from home. It is very well equipped and very well presented. Kathy, the owner is on hand, and nothing is too much trouble. The tennis court is also very well maintained. The location is good, close to some great restaurants, a large supermarket but also very quiet. I would highly recommend this villa. Thank you Kathy.

We are often in Carvoeiro staying at Casa Margarida, a small family villa just round the corner from Vivenda Summertime, but needed something large enough for a group. We were very pleased with our stay, Rudi and Kathleen could not have been more helpful, and the villa was clean, tidy and very well equipped. The pool was bracing (it was January!) but the tennis court great fun. It's easy to walk to the village for restaurants etc, but it is nice to be a little bit out of the bustle in the edge of the countryside. We will certainly plan to use it again when we need a bigger place.
We were a party of 12 ranging from 3yrs to 87yrs. WOW,was our first impression on arrival.Everything was beauifully clean and well equipped.Rudi and Kathleen made us feel very welcome and were on hand should we need them at any time.They prepared and served a wonderful meal for us all one evening and joined us afterwards for drinks.A lovely evening.We had many hours of fun in the pool,playing tennis and enjoying the garden and terrace in the evenings with tapas and wine.The town of Carvoeiro is a 20 minute walk with all the facilities you'd expect and a beach.We had a TukTuk tour, a little expensive but glad we did it. We would love to return again as a family, the only downside is going home.
We had a wonderful time in this beautiful, clean and very high standard villa with pool and tennis court. The house is close by the nice and relaxing Carvoeio beach village, just 5 minutes away with car. We were three families with kids and the house was perfect for our needs. The pool was nice and heated, the tennis court the best we have played on so far in our travels. The hosts were very friendly and helped us with every need. Just 10-15 minutes away were other beautiful and serene beaches.
Loved the stay!
We were a three generation party of 13 people (ageing 8 months to 70 years) staying in Vivienda Summertime July 16-23 .The villa is very well equipped, very clean and there is something for everyone to enjoy in the property. Also a lot of different spaces to hang out if someone wanted some privacy. The heated pool (24-26 degrees) was most popular among all of us, but it was also very nice to have the small garden to get away just to read, play pool or watch the frogs. The tennis court was also a plus with a training machine avaliable.
The rooms were spacious, with good beds and en suite bathrooms. We had a prefect stay and the service from Rudi and Kathleen was outstanding.
The location of the villa is in a residental neighborhood but close to a lot of sights and close to good supermarkets. It is possible to walk to Carvoeiro centre, but maybe a bit longer than anticipated and uphill on the way back, which might be hard for some people. However, it was a nice walk and the surroundings with lemon trees and figs were very relaxing.
We would definitely recommend this villa to other travellers interested in a relaxed vacation on the Algarve coast.
We had a wonderful week in this spacious villa!
A family of 8 adults and 6 children spent the days playing in the pool and on the tennis court. The house fulfilled all our expectations, and the owners gave us excelent service!
It is absolutely a place we would like to return to, and a place we are happy to recomend to others.
We are just back from this villa and it was so perfect. We were having a big family get together, 5 adults and 8 kids and wanted somewhere that we didn't have to leave that much. Everything about it was great, the pool, the tennis court, the villa itself. It had everything we needed, every bedroom had its own bathroom and the villa was so big we never felt on top of each other. Carvoeira is a lovely village but we didn't leave the villa that much. There are lots of lovely beaches close by and the local Waterpark is brilliant. I would recommend this villa to anyone and will definitely be going back.
