“Horrible 48 hours”
Reviewed 9 August 2013 via mobile

We found this accommodation at the last minute and were really excited about our 5* chateau retreat! We couldn't check in until 3, and reception was closed so we couldn't leave bags, so we came back at 4 and waited until 530pm (in 40' heat, and bar closed) to check in. Then discovered the apartment was small, balcony non-existent, and we were at the top of 4 flights of slippery stairs (raining) which my mum could barely navigate and stayed in the room for 2 days. All the rooms are on top of each other so when it's busy you'd know about it. We couldn't get a seat by the pool, we couldn't get a table for dinner, we couldn't get wifi outside reception which was usually closed. If you got a private pool villa it could be ok, but if you don't like European resorts with all day activities and kids clubs - don't go!

Apartment was clean and functional (stayed in a 2-bedroom). Everything is ok but nothing special and I would not have stayed a week or two. Good location if you want to explore the cities around (Grasse etc.). The view from the apartment terrace/balcony can vary very much depending on which apartment you get, so if you like to enjoy some time on your terrace/balcony especially during a longer stay it might be worth trying to request for an apartment situated on a high level on the residence (the residence is on a slope) with a view. The price is anyhow the same for same size of apartment. A few nice restaurants in Callian (especially Au Rendez-vous), but you need a car. Pools clean and were not overcrowded in July. The pillows were much too high and hard (there were no options), we had to make our own ones from towels..

Room Tip: High level with view.

I have stayed at the beautiful Resort in July. I booked because some friends were staying close by and it was a last minute booking. The pictures on the Website of the resort were not promising but there was not much choice. My first impression by arrival was positive. The resort seemed to be much better that the Website was showing. The receptionist were very kind and although the english skills were not that good but all staff was very friendly, I finally could check in after 20 min.
The room I got was very nice and clean. I could have stayed a bit longer but had no time. The restaurant was disappointing and looked like a banquet hall. Unfortunately I couldn´t find an alternative. The pools were ok and refreshing. I suggest by a late arrival to bring some drinks and food with you. All in all I had a great stay and can recommend the resort.

Room Tip: Take some food and drinks with you for the first night. The resort is quite even though they had a l...

This facility is a bit down the road from Callian and we booked it as a "bridge location" between arrival and a longer stay closer to the sea.

This was a pleasant surprise!

It's a newly built facility pretty much along the lines of a small French town and offer a wide variety of accommodations, the one we were in with a family of 5 was perfect, well equipped, new feel and spotless.

The pool area is great with a (sort of) infinity pool and a small bar/restaurant poolside. There is also a proper restaurant on the property.

There are tons of things to do in the area and it's a perfect second location if you want to combine it with another stay seaside.

I'd recommend having access to a rental car (ample parking available) since it's quite a steep walk up to the city :-)

Friendly staff and luxury feel. What more can you ask for?!

I staid here for two nights and wish I could have spent more time here, I loved it!! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and tidy and housekeeping did a great job freshening the room up the following day. The bed was so comfortable making it easy to fall and stay asleep. Each room was quiet and noise from other rooms was not a problem. Breakfast was fantastic and of high quality.

I would definitely stay here again!

My wife and I drove down to Callian from Calais and arrived at Chateau de Camiole late at night , the instructions for occupying the apartment were left for us and access was gained without any problems . The apartment was beautifully presented and the bed was comfortable , the living area and kitchen were well equipped and the south facing terrace was amazing . We used the pool facilities daily and both pools were outstanding , the upper pool had a bar and cafe attached serving burgers and pizzas among other things both of which we enjoyed greatly . The village of Callian was within easy walking distance with wonderful views all the way up . The Chateau is a marvellous centre for touring south east France , Antibes was only 20 mins drive . we will certainly consider visiting Chateau de Camiole again , it is a beautiful well kept holiday facility .

Stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment at Chateau de Camiole in June 2012. Had a fantastic week !! My two kids loved the playground and splash pool. my wife and I enjoyed the very large swimming pool with amazing views across the provencal forest. The resort is a great base for day trips to nice, antibes, cannes, st tropez and also beautiful inland towns like Fayence, Grasse & Mougins.

And closer to home there is a great hilltop village at Callian just 1/2 kilometre away with good restaurants that are very child friendly.

As for our apartment it was more than spacious enough for our needs and had a great balcony with lovely views. The staff are helpful and the breakfast is excellent. I will definitely come back !
