Nestled among olive groves in Vounaria, Greece, the five-star Camvillia Resort is an oasis that lies on the stunning Messinian Gulf, with views of the Taygetos mountain range. Only 400 metres from the crystal blue waters of Peroulia Beach, this boutique gem is the ultimate destination for switching off beneath the sun and transforming yourself into a Greek god or goddess by the pool, at the spa, and beyond. It’s no wonder Camvillia snagged a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
Modern and relaxed, this is a comfortable base to soak up Greece’s charming old-world character. Rooms are bright and airy, with plenty of thoughtful flourishes and a calming Grecian decor. Take a dip in the beautiful infinity swimming pool, relax on a sun lounger with a book, enjoy a rejuvenating massage at the spa, and simply drink in the natural wonder all around you.
If you choose to add on car hire, launch off to the nearby picturesque seaside village of Koroni for the day, and be sure to order some fresh fish at one of the waterside tavernas.
How to Get There
We had stayed at the Camvillia Resort in 2017 and liked it so much we went back this year. It was partly so we could go visit Archaea Messene again, one of our favorite archaeological sites.
The reception is enthusiastic and the rooms are big and comfortable with a great view of the bay from the balcony. Don't miss the sunrise! (In September, it's not too early.) The pool is wonderful, the best we have found in any hotel. The nearby beach is very beautiful and well worth a visit. Down at the beach, there is a restaurant with very good fresh fish.
The restaurant at Camvillia is very good in the evening, but at noon, the menu is limited and service is very slow. Otherwise, it's excellent and we had a great time there -- again.
My wife and I recently spent two weeks at Camvillia and cannot speak highly enough of everything and, more importantly, everyone there. My wife injured her foot shortly before the trip which left her having to wear a leg brace which obviously affected her mobility. From the first moment we got there, when we were driven to our room and instructed to call every time we wanted to come up to the main hotel (not a great distance for the fully mobile), the level of consideration and kindness that all the staff showed was fantastic.
The food was delicious and every effort was made to accommodate our dietary restrictions, with Christina very sweetly finding my wife gluten free cereal and Thanos ensuring that she had as wide a choice as possible at dinner. Also, Greek wine was something of a revelation!
We had a room with a shared pool but we often had it to ourselves and it never felt crowded if there was anyone else there. The views are stunning and the general sense of peace and tranquility is truly lovely.
However we have been back nearly a week now and despite the beauty and comfort of the surroundings, it is the kindness, friendliness and generosity of the staff that is the overriding memory of our stay. We were looked after like family with everyone going above and beyond to ensure our holiday was as wonderful as it could be. Thank you to Andreas, Andreas, Thanos, Panagiotis, Angelos, Marita, Jerry, Christina, Dora, Dimitris, Aris, Stefanie and everyone else, miss you guys already and we'll be saving to come see you again next year! :)
Located in a completely off the beaten path region of the Peloponnese and in tune with the rural and authentic landscape I was surprised that this resort offered me so much more than I was expecting. Despite visiting just a few days before the premises were closing for the season the service was impeccable and the meals I had were excellent. Both dinner and lunch menus were fully updated and even though less than a dozen room were booked we could find and be served everything from the menu (and from the -short but very eclectic- wine list)!I was welcomed by the Guest relations manager Mrs Marita who welcomed me with a warm smile and felt like home. She was always available to help without over imposing. Not to mention that I got to meet and talk with the Hotel Manager Mr Dimitris who runs his professional and polite staff with the same ease he would chat with every guest. Fenia at the spa gave me a truly therapeutic massage and made me feel so comfortable from the first moment. My room was impeccably cleaned daily while the stewardesses are discreet and always smiling. I was really not expecting to discover such a gem with so reasonable prices. Hope I'll visit again soon and meet the same standards without raising their price lists.
We have just returned from Camvilla.
This was our second visit and our honeymoon.
The standards are just as perfect as last year, we love this hotel. It is so stunning, quiet, clean and just what we love.
We stayed in a suite with a private pool and it was very spacious.
The food was brilliant, lots of choice for everyone and the daily special gave you another option.
Breakfast was superb as normal.
We just cant fault this place and look forward to coming back again!
Camvillia is truly an incredible place. Although it is in a smaller village, it offers everything you need for an enjoyable getaway right on sight. A beautiful pool with a bar and view, a restaurant offering great tasting options (I suggest the grouper), and a spa to enhance your relaxation. The views alone are stunning and worth the stay.
The staff has really made this experience though. They all truly care about you and your experience at Camvillia and are quick to help and ensure a very professional interaction. Thanos, in the restaurant, is incredibly knowledgeable on wine and the correct pairings. He suggested two incredible wines on two different nights that went so well with our food and were exactly what we were looking for. Maria, in the spa, was the sweetest thing. Due to bad weather, the spa filled up quickly on our last day but she agreed to stay a little later in order to give me a facial treatment and it was excellent!! Jerry greeted us out front with a smile and a good laugh each morning. Elias made the best cappuccino I’ve ever had and even once when I got the wrong one, before I could even say anything, he came out and personally apologized for the mistake and brought me the correct one!! Aris, at the bar, suggested a cinnamon apple cocktail that was out of this world. And the hotel manager, Dimitrios, was nothing short of amazing. He was always making sure our time was enjoyed and everything was perfect.
Camvillia was an excellent treat and I would highly recommend spending a few days here.
A few other items of note: incredible breakfast buffet (don’t miss the yogurt and fresh squeezed OJ), they offer a shuttle service to the beautiful beach where they have their own beach chairs and umbrellas, and don’t miss their book selection in the little business center.
