From the owner

Vivenda Summertime is located just off a narrow lane with just six other properties. It stands on a large private plot of 3600 m2, has great countryside views from the first floor terraces and is not overlooked by other properties.

Outside the large (11x 6M) pool and 3M diameter kids pool are heated by large solar panels. The full size all weather tennis court is right there on your doorstep for your own exclusive use. To keep both children and adults amused there is a quality ping pong table, and a pool table in the shade of the summer house. Indoors there is a Sony flat screen TV, DVD player, Sony PS2, books galore and other board and card games.

Whilst the nearest beach is only a five minute drive, there are many more spectacular beaches within a ten minute drive. There are water parks, Zoo Marine and other children's activities all within a 20 minute drive. Many of the Algarve's best golf courses are within 30 minutes of the villa.

The once small fishing village of Carvoeiro has grown out from the town beach and offers a great variety of restaurants bars and shops. The is a very popular supermarket just three minutes by car, which has everything you could possibly need to prepare great food at the villa and of course a great selection of inexpensive wines, beers and other drinks.

For those who want to see a bit more of Portugal than the villa or nearby beaches, there Algarve offers the fabulous west coast with it's surfing beaches and rugged landscape, the Monchique mountains, the historic Moorish city of Silves, Lagos, Portimao and other interesting towns to visit.

Further details

The tennis court is private for the sole use of clients.

The pool is heated by solar panels, which of course require the sun to shine. On average the pool temperature would be 5C warmer than a pool with no specific heating.

Further details indoors

The sixth bedroom is on the first floor and has it s own private terrace. All bedrooms have individual air conditioning. The kitchen, dining and living spaces are on the first floor. The kitchen is well equipped with two large fridges, oven, hob, dishwasher, kettle, toaster, juicer and more than enough pots, pans crockery cutlery and glassware for the largest of parties.

Further details outdoors

Outside the large (11x 6M) pool and 3M diameter kids pool are heated by large solar panels. The pool terrace has a dozen sun loungers, several large parasols, tables and chairs for you to relax, with a snack, drink or good book. The BBQ is also on the pool terrace. A low wall and planters separates the pool terrace from the full size all weather tennis court. No booking, no car ride, just there on your doorstep for your own exclusive use. As well as the pool and tennis court, the active holiday maker can also enjoy table tennis and pool.

Owner's reply:
Thank you for your review David. We are very sorry to hear that you feel bad about your stay at Vivenda Summertime. On all websites we mention that we have 6 bedrooms with air-conditioning. Until now no other guests ‘assumed’ that the rest of the house and communal areas such as the living room, kitchen, bathrooms, etc also had air-conditioning. As guests are usually out during the day and often eat out or dine al fresco on the private patio in the evenings, it has never been a problem. We are renting out a ‘self-catering’ villa and we provide linen, bathroom towels and the basics to enable guests to start their holiday. After that, as with any other self-catering villa or apartment, guests are left to their own devices. They shop and cook for themselves or eat out. It is not an hotel and we do not provide butler services.
