Čengić vila is a neighbourhood in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. The neighborhood is a part of "Novi Grad" municipality. From the local administrative standpoint it is divided into "Čengić vila I" and "Čengić vila II" units.

From the etymological standpoint, the name can be broken into two parts. "Čengić" is a family name while "Vila" is a "Villa". Derviš-paša Dedaga Čengić[1] built his residence in this part of town (in the 1800s) and people started calling the surrounding area "Čengić vila".
