We had four amazing nights at the CMC Villas (IV, Cinco and Seis) and it was just PERFECT for us to be surrounded by all of our friends and family and have the wedding right there on site. The two new villas, Cinco and Seis, are stunning and all of our friends and family were so impressed with the spec of them. The actual wedding day was perfect on the ground between Cinco and Seis and everything just ran so smoothly. The views were beautiful and we were lucky to have perfect weather too. Victoria... I can't thank her enough for being on hand constantly in the run up to the day, she was so helpful and responsive. We didn't actually go and view the venue beforehand but I wasn't stressed because Victoria answered every question I had. She kept everything so well coordinated on the day too, meaning I could 100% relax and enjoy. Steve also cooks a killer BBQ, all of our guests were so impressed. Our cake was also organised by Victoria and totally ticked all of my Pintrest inspo boxes!
The Villas are about a 5-10 minute drive away from the nearest town/village but we used Ubers the full weekend and this was no bother to arrange at all.
I would totally recommend CMC to anyone thinking of getting married in the Algarve, it was perfect for us and to be able to have 4 days of wedding celebrations in such a beautiful place, was just a total winner! Thanks guys 🤍

My wife and I rented all six villas of the CMC Collection in April 2023 to host our wedding and we could not be happier!! Beyond a beautiful location and incredible accommodations, the CMC team did such a great job to make our big day so special.

Victoria was the perfect wedding planner and host! As a destination wedding for us and our guests, Victoria helped us every stop of the way in the lead up planning our events and selecting vendors, as well as during the weekend to ensure everything was running smoothly and that all guests were comfortable.

Steve is an extremely talented chef who cooked incredible food for each of the four days of our wedding weekend- welcome pizza night, rehearsal dinner, wedding barbecue, and brunch. Each bite was better than the last and he was extremely accommodating of allergies and dietary restrictions.

I seriously can?t speak highly enough of Victoria, Steve, and the entire CMC team, they were such a pleasure to work with!! If you are on the fence about having your wedding at CMC, feel free to send me an email and with your concerns, and I will happily discuss: [email protected]
Response from Casa Monte Cristo - Algarve Weddings
Daniel, Thank you SO much for your absolutely amazing review! The friends & family that you and Monica have were totally a pleasure to host! They were all wonderful, and so kind and complimentary. Your 4 full days of events, Welcome Pizza Party, 3 course rehearsal dinner, Wedding and day 2 brunch were certainly a tiring yet rewarding few days. Thank you also for so kindly offering to talk to other couples if they wish, and I am sure some people will take you up on that. I know that I will see you both again in the future no matter if it is when we get State side again or you to Europe. With lots of love - Victoria & Steve x

I don?t know where to start with how amazing our stay and wedding at Casa Monte Cristo was. Victoria and the team were amazing from the moment we booked up until the moment we left. The team left no stone unturned and made our wedding the most perfect day. The villas were like a home from home and every single one of guests was so complimentary of both the villas and wedding venue. The day of the wedding was perfect, from Victoria reassuring us about everything to the food on the BBQ, it wad everything we wanted and more. Thanks again for everything, hopefully see you again soon at CMC!

My husband and I got married at CMC villas in early October 2023 and I do not know where to begin in expressing what a wonderful experience it was.
From our first enquiry to our departure, Victoria was absolutely outstanding. An expert in wedding planning and hospitality, her, Steve and the whole CMC team helped us bring our plans to life and we could never have imagined how phenomenal it would be.
Victoria took care of everything effortlessly, allowed us to be as involved as we wanted whilst giving honest feedback on our ideas (And we are glad we took her lead and advice at every turn!) and we felt entirely safe and comfortable in her hands. She was cool, calm and collected at all times which transferred over to us, and we were able to enjoy our time rather than stress about anything which as the bride and groom is close to unheard of!
We had the best weekend of our lives and all our friends and family were thrilled with the accommodation, the food, the whole experience. The villas are stunning, chef Steve cooks up a storm no matter what meal he is serving and the surroundings are breathtakingly beautiful.
Victoria, Steve and team - thank you so very much from the bottom of our hearts. We will be back!

We recently held our wedding celebrations at CMC and couldn?t recommend enough! Victoria, Steve and the team were all fantastic!

Victoria was extremely helpful and supportive throughout the weekend and nothing was ever too much to ask. We had a number of meetings prior to the wedding day throughout the year and Victoria was more than accommodating.

We held the ceremony at CMC Tres on the terrace with the wonderful backdrop. The wedding breakfast and evening were at CMC Cinco, a beautiful area. We couldn?t ask for the day to go any better. Everything ran smoothly without any issues all thanks to the team at CMC. All of the accommodation was spotlessly clean. (we occupied the apartments, villa too, villa tres, villa Cinco & Sies.)

All of our guests were very complimentary of the BBQ cooked by Steve. The drinks selection on the evening was also great. It?s difficult to find the worlds to justify how perfect our wedding was and that?s mostly down to Victoria and her team.

We first came across the Casa Monte Cristo Collection about 18 months ago when looking for wedding venues in the Algarve. Straight away Victoria was easy to communicate with and gave us all the information we needed about the venue without any pressure or sales pitch!

We went out to view the venue (alongside others) and were absolutely blown away. Due to numbers in our party we opted to have our ceremony at CMC Tres. Again there was no pressure to book from Victoria but we knew no other venue we had seen compared.

Fast forward through the wedding planning and Victoria just made everything so easy and smooth! She made it so smooth that at one point I phoned her because I felt I needed to be more stressed! She made planning a Portuguese wedding from Scotland so easy and care-free, arranging stationary and flowers without a second thought and replying to my many many emails! No changes or issues were ever a bother for her - even down to the fact we increased our numbers about 3 days before the wedding!!

Onto the venue itself, we stayed with our immediate family in Tres which is honestly just the most stunning, beautiful, perfect place. Everyone?s jaw dropped on arrival and it just had everything we could have possibly needed.

Our ceremony was at Tres and again our guests were all just blown away with the location with our evening party being at Cinco and again wow!! No words do this place justice! Throughout the whole day Victoria was on hand - never overbearing or bothering but just a quiet calming presence sorting things we didn?t even know needed sorted!

From getting me into my dress, printing our readings, collecting our cards, getting my flowers into water - the list could go on! Put it this way - she got a shout out in my dads speech!!

The day itself was absolutely perfect! Every member of staff was beyond delightful and helpful and just the absolute best! The ceremony set up and location was dreamy, drinks were just beautiful and the evening bit was just perfect - this was all set up by Victoria and her team with legit about 3 Pinterest photos from me and it was everything I could have ever wanted!

Now onto the bbq!!! You have never tasted food this good! I can guarantee this. I think a lot of my guests had images of burnt burgers and classic British bbq but if you haven?t had a Portuguese bbq then you have to and Steve?s is the one to start with! Every single guest was raving about the food! I am still dreaming about the food! It?s amazing! Hands down the best! Book it for this alone!!!

We then had a lovely chilled day by the pool the day after our wedding and again our guests couldn?t stop raving at how beautiful it is!

Our day felt like a dream and was absolutely perfect!! Honestly don?t hesitate and just book CMC now!!!

I cannot recommend Casa Monte Cristo enough! Everything was perfect! Victoria and her team go above and beyond in ensuing the wedding day runs as smoothly as possible and to ensure everyone has the best day.
The location is beautiful, you couldn't ask for a better view, especially as the sun starts to go down!
The food was gorgeous, on paper, BBQ and weddings don't sound like they belong together but the food was delicious! There was plenty of choice and lots of empty plates! Steve has perfected the BBQ and everyone was full of compliments on the food!
The staff are friendly and attentive and nothing is too much trouble.
Victoria was an absolute dream! She was always at the end of an email or text and everything we asked was delivered and more! She takes care of everything meaning the build up to the wedding was enjoyable and stress free, we had some last minute changes but she accommodated these with no problems!
We hired Cinco and Seis with an apartment for ourselves. The villa's are massive! Plenty of room and well equipped with everything you could want while you're away. There is more than enough room for 14 people without tripping over each other all weekend! The kitchen has everything you would need for self catering and the rooms are spacious with big comfy beds!
All in all, our wedding was perfect! Many complimenting the day saying it was the best wedding they'd been too. There is nothing I would change, I only wish I could do it all again!!

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 for this. 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!
Response from Casa Monte Cristo - Algarve Weddings
Hi Kirsten,
Thank you so much for your review, and I am so happy that you found pretty much everything amazing! I was also choked and very pleased to see your Dad's review as well, which is something quite rare for us to receive so thank you if you had any hand in that :).
I also appreciate your comments on the DJ, and I noted in your personal email to me your comment "The only thing I wanted to let you know about (not your fault at all, not feedback on you so don't worry haha)" as you booked the DJ separate from us, although I take some credit for the fact they were on our preferred supplier list, and we will be following this up, as every supplier is more than fully informed of the details, requirements and restrictions.
We really do look forward to seeing at least you and Nick [if not more of the family] in the future. With love. Victoria, Steve & The CMC Team xx

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!

Hi Alex,
Well wasn't your day just a dream!
I am truly so lucky to work with such wonderful couples, and yourself and Patrik were no exception!
Even the language barrier at times didn't stop us from creating the perfect day between us.
We are truly so pleased that you had the most amazing time, and our in house DJ really is the BEST :)
I can't wait to see some of the pictures, and even more so look forward to seeing you again in the future.

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 lol

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.

Victoria and her team at Casa Monte Cristo are the ultimate in professionalism but they are also so down to earth and they listen to what you want, they were a dream to work with and made our special day perfect. Victoria is well connected and everything I needed help with (such as finding an English speaking priest and make-up artist familiar with brown skin) she was able to advise or assist me with. The food was delicious and plentiful and the set up was gorgeous, our table decor was so classy and elegant it just completed the picture. The views of the sea from the balcony of the villa are astounding and provide the perfect backdrop. If you are looking for a stunning venue with an experienced wedding planner then look no further! I highly recommend theCMC Tres team, there are not enough stars to award them for what they did.

Victoria. You focused on every single detail and made the wedding exceed our expectations. Nothing was too much to ask for and everything ran so smoothly. You were always on hand to respond to my queries and to give advise. It really was invaluable.

Steve?s cooking was amazing. Everyone commented on the food on the wedding day. It really was so tasty and well presented. And the live cooking added to the wow factor! The breakfasts were great and again everyone commented on how well prepared and arranged it was.

All the staff we met over the week were so friendly and professional. They really are a credit to you and your business.

Thank you to your mum for making us want to book CMC for our wedding! She really inspired us in the beginning and it was literally more than we could have imagined.

The villas themselves were so clean, and comfortable and everyone was impressed with them from the moment they arrived. Each one of our guests, from those who stayed at CMC or who attended for the night before, the day or the day after commented on how well they felt looked after by you, Steve and the staff. So honestly. Thank you for everything!

We can?t wait to come back soon!

Thank you so very much, your words are absolutely wonderful and mean so much.
We honestly do take pride in every single wedding that we get to be a part of, and sometimes it can feel like I am pulled in 20 directions when we do so many weddings but to know that I still managed to make you feel like that, and that we exceeded your expectations is honestly wonderful to here.

So thank you so so much.

We stayed in Casa Monte Cristo Cinco and Seis with the rest of the wedding party. The accommodation was to an excellent standard with all the amenities you could need. The wedding day itself ran seamlessly and the food was enjoyed by all and very apt for the hot weather. Nothing was too much trouble and whether it was helping less mobile guests down to the venue on the buggy or helping transfer luggage direct to the doors of the villa, everything was done to make our guests feel welcome. Although we saw cheaper venues when looking for a wedding location, the level of service and the fact that guests could stay on site for a long weekend completely justifies the price which we considered good value for money. We would strongly recommend anyone considering a wedding in Portugal to consider this venue.

We recently got married at the new CMC villas cinco and seis- we could not fault anything! All of our guests were so comfortable at the (stunning!) villas, and the wedding itself was outstanding with a view of the mountains in the background. Food was next level- highly recommend this wedding venue and we definitely plan to be back again. Thanks Victoria!

We had our wedding here in September - in the midst of covid with so much uncertainty and worry. All I can say is I put my full trust in Victoria and it more than paid off. The villas are phenomenal. We had a very mixed group (in terms of age and the fact that everyone has their individual taste and style) and every single person was over the moon. From the cleanliness of the villas to the facilities available, we were astounded by the quality. It's always a risk booking your wedding online but we're so happy it paid off, all I can say is Victoria and Steve know what they're doing. The food was out of this world - as a vegan I know I can be tricky - and they went over and above to accommodate us! The villas all have their own personality - guaranteed you'll find the style to suit you. We're so delighted by the villas but we're more appreciative of the fantastic service from the second we arrived!! We wouldn't hesitate to book again (in fact I've told Victoria we'll be back!)

Priya & Craig,
Thank you for adding such a lovely review. As we are new to Weddingsonline, it must have seemed strange to leave a review for your wedding which was now 9 months ago [wow that has gone so fast]
Thank you so much for fully putting your faith in me, it truly was my pleasure and makes me so happy that were so happy with everything that we did.
During Covid was such a horrible time for everyone, but when it came round to your day your friends & family were amazing at making it seem like nothing was going on in the world other than your special day.
Indeed you have told me you will be back, and don't worry I will be holding you to it!

I cannot praise the Casa Monte Cristo team enough!

The standards of both villas were exceptional, the food was insane and even the fact Victoria saved the day by putting together a wedding guest book because I'd forgotten to bring one (thank you again, Victoria).

We had the most unbelievable time and cannot recommend the CMC collection and team enough. We are beyond happy with the memories we've created and cannot wait to revisit your stunning Villas in the future.

We know we didn't plan to have a silent disco but it seems we got the last laugh on COVID-19, as we ended up having the best time seeing all our loved ones bopping around with headphones, singing their hearts out all night (honestly, hearing how badly we all sang made it hilarious).

We've had several of our guests say they thought the silent disco was one of their highlights and that they felt it made it even better as it made it different... not many can say they've been to a silent disco at a wedding before!

The equipment Victoria and the team had for the headphones made the experience amazing, the quality of the music and sound meant you were really in the moment and amplified the music we loved.

Nearly a year on and we're still talking about how amazing the team, facilities, views, hospitality, service and overall time at CMC was.

All of the villas are beautifully decorated, spacious, clean with stunning views and have everything you'd need. I loved that we were able to provide self-contained apartments to the older generation (and families with kids) which meant they were able to get away from the bridal party who wanted to dance the night away in the main villa. It was honestly the perfect balance!

I'd also like to say throughout the planning process and on the big day, Victoria really kept me (the bride) calm which wasn't easy with the stresses of COVID-19 and having to get all our guests tested as well as regulations constantly changing (hence the silent disco). But Victoria just kept positive and confident which in turn kept me calm and hopeful that everything would work out in the end, which it absolutely did and exceeded our expectations.

I highly suggest you take Victoria's recommendations when it comes to other vendors like DJs, photographers and videographers etc - they were all exceptional and clearly love working with the CMC team because the day ran so smoothly.

Thank you again, I wish we could relive it all again - we had the best 4 days with you!

Jessica & Grant,
What can I say other than thank you for these amazing words.
I am so pleased that I put you at ease throughout the whole planning [certainly with Covid it was testing for all of us!] but you did put your faith in me, and well even if I do so my self, it really did pay off as your wedding was absolutely brilliant, I honestly could not have asked for a nicer, most genuine group of guests to see us into the post covid wedding season. It truly was a pleasure! I think even I would like to relive it all over again!
