Last Saturday the 27th of February, the Marina Casa de Campo was in Carnaval – an event organised by Casa de Campo Living called ‘Carnaval in Casa.’ The event was a huge success – thanks largely to all the Marina Casa de Campo businesses who took part by decorating their shops/restaurants, dressing up their staff and offering free food, drinks and special offers to everyone at the Carnaval. Casa de Campo Living would like to say a HUGE thank you to all the Marina Casa de Campo businesses, which took part and made the event the success that it was – we look forward to hosting even more events in the future with you! In order to show our gratitude to the businesses involved we have awarded prizes to the following shops:

Azurro – winner of the best decorated shop

Azurro, a high-end clothing and fashion boutique, made a huge effort decorating the store – as you can see from the photos (below and above) and they were offering free food and drinks to shoppers and happy carnaval goers!

Rubiluna – winner of the prize for the best carnaval costumes

Rubiluna sells everything from house ware to clothing to soft toys and key-rings to sunglasses – which is why it’s a popular place to buy gifts. All of the staff of Rubiluna were dressed not only in very colourful feathered and glittery masks, but were also wearing brightly colored and decorated carnaval capes! We also had a costume competition for our Carnaval goers – to see the winners and vote for the runner-up, click here. Many other of the Marina Casa de Campo’s businesses also participated, in a variety of different ways. Mediterraneo, a boutique fashion store was offering free food and drinks, some fantastic discounts and all their staff were dressed up very nicely! The Emilio Robba store, which sells ‘illusion flowers’ and other stunning household decorations was offering cookies and iced tea and the staff were wearing very pretty Carnaval masks. Chinois restaurant really got into the spirit of the Carnaval with all it’s staff dressed as Diablos Cajuelos. Rio Marina, Italian restaurant, situated at the entrance to the Marina Casa de Campo, were so keen to be involved in the Carnaval they actually brought an entire table of different Italian delicacies – which of course were so delicious they didn’t last long!
