We had our wedding on Saturday 12th August 2023 at Casa Monte Cristo Villa's.
It was absolutely amazing, it was everything we had hoped for - and more! We had just over 60 people there. We really wanted a relaxed theme at the wedding, when looking for venues CMC was perfect for this.
The main wedding party stayed at Tres, which is where we had the ceremony on the terrace. We then had most guests staying in Cinco and Seis. This was brilliant having most guests staying across the other villa's.
We had our ceremony at Tres on the Saturday, which was perfect. The view of the sea was breath taking, it was the ideal place for us. We had the drinks reception in the garden on Tres which was a great location for us to have some wedding photos whilst the guests enjoyed the drinks and canape's in the shade of the trees. The wedding breakfast and evening was then over at Cinco, which is just so perfect!
The food was absolutely incredible, all of the guests were commenting on this, the presentation of the food was also brilliant. The day itself ran so smoothly, as the bride I didn't feel stressed at any point throughout the day and this is genuinely because of how Victoria and her team manage the day. We also had a Day 2 at Tres, where we had the pizza van - once again the food was amazing. I would highly recommend the pizza's! The guests loved having this second day to relax and enjoy the amazing venue of Tres even more.
Victoria, Steve and the team were amazing, so incredibly professional and such a huge help. Victoria would respond so quickly and helped massively in terms of planning. Victoria was the main wedding planner for this as she knows the villa's so well and what does and doesn't work. Nothing was ever too much trouble, Victoria always reassured me when needed and her attention to detail is fantastic.
I cannot recommend CMC, Victoria and the team highly enough. We would absolutely love to do it all over again. I can't thank Victoria enough for answering my endless questions and for being so reassuring/understanding throughout the entire planning process. The guests were so complimentary of the villa's and the venue itself, noting how clean the villa's were and how brilliant everything else was for the wedding (especially the food!). Do not hesitate to have your wedding at CMC - you will definitely not regret it!
Pretty much everything about the wedding, was amazing. First of all, the venue(s) are perfect, there are staff available at all times to help out with any problems, replenish the bar, answer questions and generally keep everything tidy. Victoria was able to help with any last minute requests I had and made sure everything ran very smoothly on the actual wedding day. The communication was seamless and the wedding went exactly how we expected / wanted. The villas are beautiful and on the rare occasion there was an issue, e.g. the lights didn't work in the outdoor kitchen, Victoria was very quick to sort this out for us and called out an electrician immediately. It is the perfect venue for a villa wedding and I would recommend it in a heartbeat. The only slight and it is, very slight, issue is that the venue have a strict 11pm cut off time for the wedding, which we knew about and isn't a big problem, but, make sure your DJ knows the cut off time as ours claimed not to know and then didn't get to play a "last song" which made the night feel like it ended quite abruptly. Overall though, it was amazing!
We had our Wedding at Casa Monte Cristo on the 5th of May 2023, and it really was the wedding of our dreams! We booked four villas and all of the apartments for our 60 guests + 4 children. We loved that all of the villas were located near by each other which made it possible for us to walk between them. This is what made us choose Casa Monte Cristo for our wedding. The fact that all of our guests could stay at the same place. The villas were even more luxurious than they looked at the pictures. Everything was so clean and well maintained. My husband and I live in Sweden and had to book and plan the whole wedding from distance using only email. We booked the venue in November 2021 and have had contact with Victoria through email since then. She has been very professional and we felt so secure with her organising everything and reminding us of details we wouldn’t have thought of ourselves. All of our guests have complimented us on the amazing villas, the location and especially the beautiful wedding day. The food was so good and we had the best DJ! Some of our guests had rented cars but most of them used Uber or Bolt if they wanted to go to town or order some food. It was never a problem with this! Victoria also arranged transfer to pick up19 of our guests from the airport on the same day. We are still chocked by how great everything turned out and that we got to have our absolute dream wedding. If you are dreaming of having a destination wedding instead of getting married in a cold country like Sweden, this is the place to book!
From beginning to end Victoria at Casa Monte Cristo has been fabulous. We didn't actually see the venue until a year after we booked, and it totally surpassed our already high expectations. No question was too much for her, and the entire team there are all fabulous. The villas are gorgeous, and the setting is perfect for the big day. As a control freak it takes a lot for me to trust someone with a task like this, but the entire time was amazing and ran so smoothly, that as the couple, you get to actually enjoy your day and relax!

Casa Monte Cristo was the perfect venue for us as we wanted to be surrounded with friends and loved ones during the 4 days we were there and to have an intimate wedding. We ended up being a large group of 80 adults and kids in total but the space was ample yet cosy. Victoria was on hand for any queries and making the arrangements were so straightforward and easy. Victoria anticipated what needed doing and ensured the decision making process was as easy as possible. We communicated mainly via email but Victoria was extremely responsive. The villas are pristine and all of the guests commented on the high level of finish across all of the 4 villas we stayed in. If you’re looking for a venue that is chic, intimate, delicious food and no detail was too great of an ask, then I could not recommend Casa Monte Cristo highly enough.
This venue is the perfect place to get married - we loved the garden set-up, the views and the very relaxed atmosphere that Victoria and her team create for the days leading up to and including the Wedding Day itself. The food was amazing. The day ran so smoothly as Victoria had scheduled everything for us - we didn't have to worry about anything on the day. We loved the idea of having our family and friends stay on the grounds as close to the ceremony/reception area, which is one of the first reasons we wanted to get married at CMC, this meant we got to spend time with everyone that made the journey from Ireland for our wedding celebration.
Everyone called me crazy booking & planning a wedding fully online, without seeing the venue or meeting the planner. I went with my adventurous gut feeling and just booked it anyways, after a few emails exchanged with Victoria and I don't regret it one single bit. Victoria was on point with her communication, kept me honest and kept me organized. She reminded me of the things I shouldn't forget, and God knows I didn't think of half of the items she called out. Victoria & Steven delivered a beautiful wedding day, with delicious and finger-licking food. They were so accommodating in finding us a 'halal' butcher, as well as switching the hors-d'oeuvres over to Portuguese 'salgados'. We would throw our wedding all over again with Victoria & Steven. As a final note, I would even add that I have some of the people that are looking to book their holiday at CMC for next summer! A huge thanks to Victoria & Steven, you've been absolutely amazing!

We stayed in Casa Monte Cristo Tres for a week and during our stay hosted our wedding in this stunning villa. All I can say is, WOW. Victoria was so so helpful from the day I enquired about the booking. She recommended some really great vendors, and she helps with so much of the planning. It made everything so relaxing. I was a bit nervous not knowing how my flowers would look as she organised this, but I was so so pleasantly surprised they were the most beautiful flowers I could have ever hoped for. She was so lovely to work with to make the day how we want and she gave us so many tips and checked in with us on the day. She was constantly rushing around doing something and it made the day just so much easier. She never got sick of me either when I would ask a hundred questions in a row! We had so many compliments on the food too, oh my god it was amazing! Everything tasted delicious and everyone went up for seconds it was so tasty! Especially the sausages! The villa itself is stunning! We didn’t visit it before booking so we only seen it the day we landed in Portugal for the wedding and we were blown away with how amazing it was. It was so spacious and even when we had guests around there was still so much space for everyone we were never cramped. All of the staff at the villa are so lovely too they always had a smile on their face and would always say hello. I already can’t wait to come back for a visit we have had so many people say the villa wedding was like a fairytale and we can’t thank Victoria, Steve and their team enough for everything they have done. Thank you so so much again. We loved every second of our stay and I can guarantee you'll see us again sooner than you think
I cannot fault the service we received from Victoria. From start to finish her responses too all of my many questions were dealt with quickly, and were very helpful. From providing details of vendors, helping arrange flowers and a wedding cake for us which we’re both beautiful. The set up and decor for the day itself was lovely and simple which is perfect for the location. The day ran smoothly which was all thanks to Victoria and her team, helping out in every way possible to make our wedding memorable. The whole day was perfect and we couldn’t have asked for anything better.
