“Happy days”
Reviewed 9 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We went away with our university friends and our children for one week at the end of May. Rudi and Kathleen were wonderfully generous hosts, who helped make our stay really special. The villa was well stocked, very clean/comfortable and provided a great social space. The pool and the tennis courts were fab and I felt completely safe letting my 3 yr old and 5 yr old wander around. The views from the villa where lovely over a morning coffee and it was a very peaceful end of road property. The nearby village was great for a meal and a few drinks - very friendly. I would defintely recommend this villa and the surrounding bays in May / June for a lovely family holiday. :o)

“Fantastic large villa, very well presented, great tennis court. Very relaxing.”
Reviewed 15 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

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.

“Perfect place to stay”
Reviewed 18 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

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.

“Perfect Villa to celebrate with friends”
Reviewed 16 May 2012 for a stay in September 2011

We have stayed in this villa twice now and both times we have all had a great time - both visits were for a birthday celebration. It's great that all 6 bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms. The Villa is comfortable and cosy and you feel at home straight away. The pool and gardens are lovely and the tennis court is huge fun. The upper terrace area is great for eating/drinking on and just chatting with friends - perfect for us. The walk into Carvoeiro was just right for us all, but at night we did get taxis home from town, as they were such good value. We booked our hire cars with Luz cars in Lagos and that all worked out great. The owners were helpful when we made our bookings and everything all worked out perfectly.
