“Perfect villa experience with friends and a baby!”
Reviewed August 10, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We chose the location as our friend was getting married close by. There were 5 adults and a baby who stayed in the villa for a week. It far exceeded our expectations of a villa holiday in a destination we probably wouldnt have chosen ourselves.

I organised the trip direct with the owner of the villa who was very helpful and accomodating, which was very much appreciated. The villa was much bigger than expected with fantastic outside spaces and a big pool. It was clean and tidy upon arrival and the maid came every other day to clean and tidy aswell as put out clean towels if needed. Mike and Emma who look after the villa on behalf of the owner met us at the villa after we landed at about 11.30pm! They showed us around and left milk and bread etc for us, which was a lovely touch. They came back the next morning to run through some things and then dropped a few of us off at the supermarket which was a great help as we had a wedding to go to that day! The weather was amazing, really hot and we spent the majority of the holiday by the swimming pool and there were no insects! There is also wifi.

Carvoeiro is a small town but there are plenty of lovely places to eat. However, you do need to book in advance as they are all really popular (The Wolf was great). The beaches were lovely and they had entertainment in the square in the evening which was good. A taxi into town was about 7 euros each way but a little to far for us to walk with a baby in the heat (although probably only about a 30 minute stroll).

There is no air con in this villa and even though it reached 40+ degrees it wasnt unbareable as there were fans in all the rooms. The only negative comment would be that the fridge couldnt handle the hot weather as well as we could and some of the meat had gone off before we could cook it but we did mention this to Emma & Mike out of courtesy.

Overall we had an amazing holiday and would 100% recommend this villa. Hope you all enjoy it as much as we did.

Booking this villa was trouble free and Carolina's communication faultless. On Arrival at Casa Camelia we were met by Emma and Mike who were more than helpful with local info and knowledge. Having had our introduction they disappeared and let us settle in to our week. Having studied the pictures of the Villa over the last two weeks we were not disappointed with the reality. The pool was beautifully clean and the villa in very good decorative order. I have to say my only recommendation (as per the detail) if you're looking to go out and about and for shopping you will need a car. That being said we got quite friendly with the golf club staff who speak perfect english who quite often organised us a taxi to and from the supermarket and Slide and Splash waterpark. We were visited a few times in the week by our housekeeper Julietta who was both friendly and efficient. All in all a fantastic time and we will definitely consider coming back in the future. Thanks again for a wonderful week.

“Super villa”
Reviewed June 10, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had 3weeks in Casa Camellia &enjoyed every Minute of it. Everything at the villa was of very high standard from the China to the great pool. It is situated in a very nice area & within 5 minutes walk to a very nice 9 hole golf cause . To minutes to the nearest shop & 5 minutes to the centre of Carvoeiro . If we were going back to the aria again we would deflinetly hopefully be able to get the villa again.
