Overview

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 villa is in a very peaceful location with a couple of restaurants, bars and a cake shop within walking distance. There is a small supermarket within walking distance the larger one (Apolonia) is a drive if you are getting anything heavy but a pleasant 20 min walk if only picking up a few bits. The villa itself is clean and well maintained. The bathrooms/bedrooms and lounge is nicely decorated although the kitchen/dining area could do with updating. Plenty of crockery, cutlery and saucepans. The outside space and pool area is great with plenty of options for sitting in sun or shade. Short drive into Albufeira or you can get a bus/taxi. We are regular visitors to this area and would definitely stay at this villa again. The local representative is also very helpful especially when we managed to lock ourselves out - she was there within 20 mins to let us in.



Our response:

"Hi Nikki, thank you for your feedback and review of Casa Do Engenho, we're delighted to hear that you had a great holiday. The villa has been renovated in stages and the last job is the kitchen which is being replaced this winter (2017). So, if you do choose to stay in Casa do Engenho again soon, there will be a nice new kitchen :-) We look forward to welcoming you on another Perfect Villa Escapes Holiday soon!"

Schöne Haus, Großer Pool - Jederzeit wieder!

  • 5 of 5

Wir (2 Pärchen im Alter von 25-32) waren Ende Juni/Anfang Juli (leider nur für 1 Woche) in diesem Haus.

Das Haus hat insgesamt 3 Schlafzimmer , jedes davon mit eigenem Badezimmer, das fanden wir super! Nur ein Schlafzimmer davon, hatte ein Doppelbett, die anderen jeweils zwei Einzelbetten,die man aber gut zusammenschieben konnte!;)

Küche war mit Geschirr/Töpfen etc. gut ausgestattet.

Während unseres Aufenthalts wurden, trotz vorhandener Waschmaschine, sogar 1x die Handtücher gewechselt.

Der Außenbereich und Poolbereich war großartig, jeden zweiten Tag, kam der Poolboy vorbei und reinigte den Pool!

Tischtennisplatte+ Schläger waren auch vorhanden!

Die Umgebung in Guia war ziemlich ruhig, wenn man mehr Aktion haben möchte, müsste man mit dem Auto nach Albufeira (ca.7min) fahren.

Der Strand ( Praia de Galé) war in 2km zu erreichen - langer weißer Sandstrand, wir sind immer mit dem Auto hin gefahren, kostenlose Parkplätze waren immer vorhanden. Andere Strände ( Praia de Lourenco 1,7km - Sandbucht mit Felsen & Praia de Salgados 2,5km - langer Sandstrand) waren auch schnell zu erreichen.

Wir hatten eine super schöne Woche und würden jederzeit wieder im Haus „ Villa do Engenho“ Urlaub machen!

Es war einfach toll!

Achtung!! - Kleiner Tipp:

Wir waren am ersten Tag im Supermarkt Apolonia einkaufen, war am nähsten, allerdings sehr sehr teuer!

Zu empfehlen ist es, nach Albufeira zu fahren, da gibt es Lidl , Aldi etc. ist wesentlich günstiger!

Casa do Engenho

  • 5 of 5

Het huis is inderdaad zeer kindvriendelijk door de fantastische tuin en het hek om het zwembad.

Het huis is van alle gemakken voorzien en erg dicht bij een aantal mooie stranden.

Sehr komfortables und großes Haus in ruhiger Lage

  • 5 of 5

Die Einrichtung und die Lage des Hauses lassen kaum Wünsche offen. Vor allem mit Kindern kann man dank W-Lan u. a. Annehmlichkeiten wie großer Pool etc. entspannt den Urlaub genießen. Allerdings sollte man ein Mietauto oder eigenes Fahrzeug haben, da der Weg zum Meer oder anderen POI, z. B. Albufeira oder Serra de Monchique doch zu Fuß ziemlich weit ist. Fahrräder kann man auch gut gebrauchen. Man sollte die Verleihfirmen vorher kontaktieren.

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.
