About Jeannette Koenitzer

I spent many years travelling around the world.

I had the pleasure of completing 5 world cruises during this time.

After seen so many beautiful as well poor Places and all those different cultures, I can truly say, I always enjoyed coming to Portugal.

I fell in love with the Country, especially the Algarve, with there beautiful sandy beaches, not to forget the good Portuguese Food and the friendly people out here.

I (German) met my Husband (UK)here in Portugal and thats where we live ever since with our little Son (now 5years).

We have now moved to a smaller Property, as Casa Oliveira is to big for our little Familie, but enjoy coming back to our Villa in Albufeira whenever possible, as it has everything what we call personality, atmosphere and style.

Jeannette Koenitzer purchased this villa in 1992

Why Jeannette Koenitzer chose Ferreiras

The Property is in a quiet secluded Street, but very close to all the amenities.

Its located between the busy tourist Town of Albufeira and the quiet sleepy and typical Portuguese little Town of Ferreiras.

Typical local Restaurants within only 2min walking distance, where you still can eat your Dish of the day (Prato do Dia) to 4,50 Euros and have a Lt of Wine to 5,50 Euros.

Casa Oliveira is surrounded by a dozen of well known Golf courses within driving distance as well beautiful sandy Beaches.

What makes this villa unique

The Property is in a very secure area, quiet, but central.

Casa Oliveira has his own Pool for a relaxing day with Family and Friends.

The Owner of the Property is more than happy to assist you in anything you might need, before, during and after your stay.

Free Airport pick up and drop of (Faro Airport), so no driving around in a new area, where you not 100% sure, where to go. Personal welcome.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to say thanks for your hospitality for our holiday last week, we all enjoyed ourselves very much and it was sad leaving such a lovely place.


Superb! Thanks for looking after us.

We loved the Villa and location. While the "Kids"enjoyed the Nightlive on the Strip, we relaxed or had a quiet Meal in one of the local Restaurants.

Everyone of the Familie (all age groups) has found what they needed.

Casa Oliveira is only to recommend.

We will defenitely be back. Lynn, Adam, Lee, Dawn, Anna and Jamie.

Large group holiday.

  • 4 of 5

The villa was ample sized to accommodate our party of 4 adults and 5 children. Location was ideal for us to explore surrounding towns in car but had restaurants within walking distance for an evening meal. The pool was ideal for the late afternoon sun and plenty of space to sunbathe on patio. Jeannette and Derek were very friendly, accommodation our early arrival and popping by to make sure all ok.

Fantastic time

  • 5 of 5

Lovely stay here in the height of Summer. The villa was far more spacious than the photographs suggested. The villa was well stocked with all you would ever need and we frequently chose to cook at the house.

We travelled as a family of 4 with a grandparent but there was so much room I think you could have 4 couples and everyone could find there own private area to escape to. Lots of balcony and sun terrace space - great for star gazing at night.

The garden are beautiful and are so carefully looked after that they are only going to get more beautiful as time goes on.

The fact that the house was supplied with towels was a big help and there were loads of other everyday essentials waiting for us (kitchen roll, loo roll, cleaning products).

The owners were available without being intrusive. Communication before we arrived was efficient and it was smooth.

While we were there Derek was on hand every couple of days as he maintained the pool to give a flavour of local knowledge and suggestions. He was also really helpful in making an emergency call out when the power went off one night. They live locally so it was only a 10 minute problem.

The villa is a 10 minute drive from Albufeira. and 3 minutes drive from Ferreiras. There are a couple of restaurants that you can walk to but that's about it. This appeals to us but it is certainly not a central location, You would need a car to get about.

We would totally recommend the villa and I am sure you would have lovely time.

Thanks Again to Jeanette and Derek and young Oliver (who is a credit to you)

excellent holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful villa for 10 nights in August and had a great time. All 4 of us adults, 3 teenage girls, and 2 younger children (aged 12 & 5) all loved having their own pool to play in and plenty of places to and enjoy meals in the shade or sun, sunbathing, etc. The villa is in a lovely quiet cul-de-sac with lovely gardens, and is very peaceful. It was the most relaxing holiday I've had and the weather was fantastic (and not one mosquito in sight!). We were also welcome with a huge basket of fruit, bread, jams, pates, drinks, tea, coffee, etc, and the owners had arranged airport transfers which was included in the price.

The owners, Jeanette, Derek, and their son Oliver couldn't have been more friendly and helpful, taking me out in their car to show me around, and even driving my niece to the hospital and back when she wasn't well. Anything we needed to know, we could just call and ask and nothing was too much trouble for them.

There was a lovely local restaurant a few minutes walk up the road which served lovely food a very reasonable prices, and a bar where we could walk to and have a drink whilst we waited for a taxi to take us out and about. There is a small supermarket not far from the villa, and the town of Ferreiras is not far (we walked to it in half an hour, and has a lovely butchers and bakers, and an Intermarche nearby. Into Albefuira near the old town you will find other big supermarkets (even Lidl and Aldi), and we could get a taxi there in 10 minutes and back with shopping. It would have been easier with a car, but it was our choice not to hire one, and we got around fine and walked alot. We had a great day at Aqualand which has some great slides and lovely seating areas for a very reasonable price.

All in all, Casa Oliveira and the surrounding area is a great place to enjoy your holiday, with excellent owners on hand when you need them.

Thank you to Jeanette, Derek, and Oliver
