Rustic, bohemian sophistication at Camellas-Lloret

Every detail has been lovingly curated to make Camellas-Lloret the epitome of shabby chic. Nothing feels brand-new or polished but rather elegantly lived-in. Every corner of the building looks like a snapshot from an interior magazine, yet there’s a distinct lack of pretension. From the beautiful salon where guests share a glass of rosé with host Cathy to the high-walled courtyard in which to linger over your morning coffee, Camellas-Lloret is designed to make you feel completely at ease.

Camellas-Lloret comprises 4 unique bedrooms and a garden apartment styled from a converted workshop, each dripping in bohemian charm. In the courtyard, delicate plants line the gravel terrace, green leaves drape across the wrought-iron furniture, and pale roses stand out against the old brickwork. A stay here is like losing yourself in a daydream of cool serenity and effortless elegance. Perfectly placed to explore the surrounding medieval towns and villages, Camellas-Lloret is a blissful sanctuary of understated charm.

Can’t say enough about our wonderful experience at Camellas lloret. Homey, welcoming, chic - an authentic small French town experience! Cathy and Jean Marie were intriguing and fabulous hosts providing our group with thoughtful attention and service, including two much appreciated and relaxing meals at the end of our days. Didn’t want to leave!

My wife and I, and two other couples, stayed 2 nights with Kathy and Jean Marie, who were amazing hosts. Their quirky cute amazing inn is a delight. My wife and I had the upstairs room overlooking the courtyard - loved it! Food and company were second to none. Don’t miss this place and these hosts!

This place is a slice of heaven, a French countryside dream owned by the most kindest and interesting hosts. We stayed for a week during a work-cation and it was a great set up for that - office space in the living room, breezy terrace with good wifi and a kitchen for us to take full advantage of the bountiful produce at the local farmer shops.Had many a fantastic conversation with other guests and the owners Cathy & Jean-Marie who were filled with great stories and recommendations for the area - food, places to see and wine.I don't see how you'll go wrong booking here!
