Vivenda Summertime - Fabulous villa with private tennis court and large pool



Updated: 07-Sep-2016
Six bedrooms all with en suite bathroom. Sleeps 14

Vivenda Summertime is a large, comfortable villa, with six air conditioned bedrooms, all with en suite bath or shower. Four bedrooms have 2 single beds, that can be converted into a king size bed. The other two bedrooms have three singles in each, these can be two doubles and a single, or four singles in one,and a double or two singles in the other. Huge fully equipped kitchen includes large fridges, oven, gas hob, dish washer, microwave, juicer, toaster, etc. Laundry room with washing machine. First floor open plan living room with very large corner sofa and chairs, fireplace, Sat TV, DVD, HiFi, extensive books. Wooden dining table seats twelve, many pictures, great ambiance. Outside dining terrace with large marble table and chairs to seat 14. Pool 6x11 metres (solar heating) + toddler pool, large terrace with twelve sun beds, tables, chairs, and BBQ. Full size tennis court tropical garden with fish pond, summer house with hammock + chairs, table tennis, pool table.

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“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 were a party of 12 ranging from 3yrs to 87yrs.WOW, was our first impression on arrival .Every thing was beautifully cleaned and we'll equipped.Rudi and Kathleen made us feel very welcome and were on hand should we need them.They prepared and served a wonderful meal one evening for the family and joined us for drinks afterwards.We had many hours of fun in the pool and playing tennis and enjoying the garden and terrace in the evenings with tapas and wine.The town of Carvoeiro is within walking distance with a lovely beach.Everything there you could need with supermarkets close by too.Would also recommend a tuktuk tour. We would definitely love to visit again,the only downside is having to leave.Thankyou both for a wonderful holiday

Great Villa

  • 4 of 5

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!

Well equipped and very comfortable villa!

  • 5 of 5

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.

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

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.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

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.

What a truly fabulous place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 2 years ago, so apologies for very late review. We travelled her in May half term, three families. So 6 adults and 7 children. We loved it here, loads of space. We all had our own rooms, our own bathrooms and lots of areas to sit if you wanted to have down time. The tennis court is first rate and we loved the pool. Easy short drive to beaches and shops. car needed

Highly highly recommend.

  • The largest two bedrooms have three single beds each. These can be configured to king size doubles plus a single if required. We can also arrange four singles (dorm style) in one room leaving two singles or a king size for the other. Five of the bedrooms are on the ground floor. Three have doors to the pool terrace, and two on to the garden. The sixth bedroom is on the first floor, and has its own private balcony with great views. The kitchen and main living/dining area is upstairs, and the upper dining terrace looks over the pool and tennis court, which is great for keeping an eye on the children whilst enjoying a drink on the terrace. In addition to the internal marble stairs, there is a spiral stair case from the pool terrace up to the first floor dining area. The pool is heated by large solar panels. These generally maintain a water temperature 5C above a pool without any heating facilities. They do however require sunshine to be effective. All bedrooms have air conditioning.
