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.
