Camvillia Resort is a five star boutique hotel in the south-west region of Messenia that offers unobstructed views of the Messenian Gulf, perfect for families and friends alike.
47 minimalistic rooms and suites are spread out across ten double-story stone houses (in keeping with the local architecture) and all have a neutral décor, think creams and earth colours. The Executive Double rooms have private terraces to appreciate the sea views whilst the Private Suites boast their own pool.
At Aelia restaurant guests can enjoy dining on traditional Greek breakfasts come sunrise, light lunches under the midday sun and Mediterranean cuisine come sunset and each dish uses fresh produce from the Messinia region (try 'sfela', the famous local cheese).
Facilities include a main outdoor pool which blends seamlessly into the Gulf, an indoor heated pool, all-day bar, gym and sauna. If you ever tire of wandering the olive grove gardens and lazing by the pool then the historic town of Koroni sits only a stone's throw away. For the water babies, head down to Peroulia beach, approximately a 15 minute walk away, and enjoy an array of water sports including kayaking and canoeing.
Why we love it
Enjoy a refreshing cocktail aside the pool and admire the spectacular views. It's so simply satisfying.
