About the property

3-bedroom villa with brand-new bathrooms, gated pool area & walking to amenities

A traditional Algarve holiday villa offering families and groups of friends great value for money. With full air-conditioning, lots of lawns and shady areas plus a lovely pool (fenced for children), you are sure to enjoy your stay here!

Casa do Engenho is a lovely villa for those wishing to be close to restaurants and shops, and not far from the beach. It's located off the road between Vale De Parra and Galé Beach, one of the nicest beaches on the Algarve, just 5km from Albufeira. It's a great summery holiday villa which mixes bright colours and modern comfortable decor with a hint of traditional furniture.

On the ground floor there's a comfortable, bright and colourful lounge with sofas, TV and DVD player, and patio doors leading to the garden and pool. There's a dining area with wooden dining table and chairs. The well equipped kitchen is fitted with wooden units and appliances which include a dishwasher, a door leading to the brick-built barbecue and dining terrace. Next to the kitchen is a WC cloakroom/bathroom, and completing the ground floor are two tastefully decorated twin bedrooms both with an en-suite bathroom with bath and shower.

Upstairs there is a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with a shower. All of the bedrooms are air-conditioned.

Outside, the enclosed private garden is surrounded by hedges and dotted with pretty pot-plants and bougainvilla. The pool has brand new sun-loungers and has a fenced pool for your piece of mind and a dining table and chairs, and there's a lawned area to the side of the pool terrace which runs down to the barbecue. The barbecue has easy access between here and the kitchen, there is also further dining furniture on this terrace. Also new for this summer (2015) the owner has built a shaded pergola right next to the pool which is perfect for keeping the young ones in plenty of shade!

Caso Do Engenho is a great base for a family, or group of friends, looking for a well-equipped comfortable holiday villa, whilst being close to restaurants, cafés and bars, and within a comfortable daytime walk, or short drive of the beach.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The Casa do Engenho was perfect for our needs with two young children aged 2 and 5 able to play in the secure garden with all the gates lockable. The fenced pool was especially reassuring! Great to have washing machine and line too. The pool filters needed a bit of TLC but the pool itself was nice and clean. The villa also suited my disabled mother, though there were some shallow steps up to the front and two steps from the living room to the terrace at the back which was trickier with no rails to grab. The showers were lovely and modern. Carmo, the agent, was very helpful and the villa was clean and comfortable with a really well equipped kitchen (except for ice trays).

We had a great holiday and would definitely book that villa if in the area again.

Thanks for suggesting it to us!

Kind regards

Super schönes Haus in der Nähe vom Meer - sehr netter Service vor Ort

  • 4 of 5

In der Villa "Casa do Engenho" kann man hervorragend seinen Urlaub verleben.

Lage: Das Haus liegt in einem Vorort von Albufeira, ca. 1,8 km vom Meer/Beach entfernt. In direkter Laufdistanz sind Bäcker, (kleiner) Supermarkt und mehrere gute Restaurants.

Ausstattung: Die Bäder sind neu und sehr modern. Alle 3 Schlafzimmer verfügen über eine relativ leise und gut funktionierende Klimaanlage. 2 der 3 Schlafzimmer haben zusätzlich zum Wohnzimmer einen Flachbild-Fernseher mit Sat.-Receiver. Das Eltern-Schlafzimmer mit Doppelbett ist relativ klein.

Einzig die Küche und die Ausstattung war etwas alt und gewöhnungsbedürftig. Der Geschirrspüler funktionierte nicht richtig, weil sich ein Sprühkopf sich nicht bewegte, mußte man stark verschmutztes Geschirr per Hand abwaschen. (Der Hausverwaltung wurde der Defekt mitgeteilt - ohne Erfolg.) Es gab 2 Kühlschränke - das war super für die Lagerung von Getränken.

Das W-Lan funktioniert gut im Wohnzimmer, in den weiteren Räumen geht es leider schlecht.

Service: Sehr guter Service vor Ort. 2x die Woche wurden die Handtücher gewechselt, 1x die Woche die Bettwäsche getauscht, 2x die Woche die Fußböden oberflächlich gewischt. Der Poolservice und der Gärtner kamen 1x die Woche. Auf unsere Anfrage nach mehr Strandtüchern, haben wir weitere 4 Stück erhalten. In der (altersschwachen) Waschmaschine haben wir dann selbst die Strandtücher gewaschen.

Der Pool ist ein Traum. Es gibt einen kinderfreundlichen abgegrenzten Bereich von 1m Tiefe und das große Becken. Der Garten ist sehr gepflegt.

Fazit: ein sehr schönes großes, komfortables Haus. Es fehlen wirklich nur Kleinigkeiten zum Wohlfühlen. Super Abwicklung und super Service vor Ort. Jederzeit würde ich dieses Haus wieder buchen.
