Description from 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
