Heaven on earth, with mosquitos

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 20 (4 under 10s, 4 teenagers, 12 adults) had a fabulous week at this stunning property. Cristina and the owners were extremely helpful and reactive to the smallest problem - clearing a blocked sink, and providing a kettle and more tea towels very promptly, despite a bank holiday. Rubbish is collected (and recycled) every day, and the garden maintenance was very unobtrusive, arriving very early so plants etc were watered, often before we got up.

Cristina's sparkling Chardonnay wine is highly recommended, and the food she catered for us was delicious.

The building is perfect for large gorups - the smallest bedrooms have individual bathrooms, but otherwise 2 bedrooms share. There is also a bathroom downstairs, and the pool house is excellently equipped with shower, toilets, and changing rooms... and wifi.

Being in its own grounds makes the property very safe for small children, and the pool is also suitable for little ones, & well equipped with lilos. The property also has swings, a table tennis table, football area, boules pitch outdoors - and table football and some puzzles and games indoors. You can also walk or jog on a path round the property's grounds, partly through the woods and round the gardens. We lived at the pool house and in the kitchen - but there was plenty of space, even if we had had rain.

Only drawback was the mosquitos - especially in the kitchen. Do bring strong anti-mosquito stuff. Smidge worked for me - but we also had slowburning products under the tables by the pool, and sprayed curtains, bed clothes etc to try to discourage them at night.

Wonderful venue for a group holiday

  • 5 of 5

For our party of fourteen oldies and five young adults Camillina Villa was the perfect place to stay. The sun shone, the pool was inviting and the food was delicious.

From the Villa there is a walk of 20 minutes or so into Canelli centre (ask for the key to the side gate to avoid a tedious stretch of road). Canelli has restaurants, bars and useful supermarkets. It’s not a big tourist town but has its share of old streets, churches and pleasant squares. Wider afield, there are interesting places to visit in the vine clad and wooded hills which are superb to walk or drive through. We also took trains into Turin (from Asti) and Genoa (from Acqui Terme). Piedmont is a big food area and eating in or out the wonderful taste of the local produce added greatly to the enjoyment of our holiday.

Camillina Villa itself is a big solid house, not perhaps the most attractive of buildings from outside, but the rooms are large and the interior has character. There were plenty of bathrooms but we would have liked more kitchen equipment. We spent most of our time in the area by the pool and the pool house. The latter has an in built barbeque and long veranda which gets shade from about noon onwards. It was perfect to sit here talking, reading or taking a beer or glass of wine during the extremely hot days that were a feature of our stay. The villa is very private, set in its own gated and large grounds. It is circled by a road, so there is some road noise although this only really bothered us at the weekends when cars were returning from a late night out in Canelli.

The high temperatures made sleeping sticky and brought out the mosquitoes. If you are coming in high summer, some good insect repellent and after-bite would be a wise thing to pack. The biting insects were less noticeable on the cooler days, so there is clearly a trade-off to be had. The Wi-fi was a bit hit and miss. We mentioned this to the owner but it may be a problem beyond their control.

The owners and Cristina, who translates for them in excellent English, were extremely pleasant and helpful. Cristina organised a wine-tasting and meal for us early in the holiday which got the fortnight off to a splendid start. If you have a large party and want to visit an interesting but less visited area of Italy, Camillina Villa might well be the place for you. If you enjoy your trip half as much as we have ours I doubt if you will be disappointed.

Prima huis op "top"-lokatie

  • 4 of 5

Ruime woning met voldoende comfort, prima zwembad met handig en gezellig pool-huis. Deel van het huis prima te huren met maximaal 12 personen. Loop afstand van Canelli. Verhuurster heel servicegericht en heeft ook eigen wijnbedrijf met mogelijkheid voor bezoek en kookcursus. Eigenaar van het pand is zeer zorgzaam en heeft te bezoeken delicatessen bedrijf. Als verwarming nodig is, is de energie ( ook vanwege de grote van het pand) duur. Waar voor je geld. Streek is uitstekend voor liefhebbers van Italiaans eten, wijn en slowfood.
