Camella has chosen to build an expansive, 11-hectare development in Barangay Joyao-Joyao in Numancia, right at the heart of bustling Metro Kalibo, Aklan’s capital.
Italian-inspired, the community is built on a circular master plan that radiates from a beautifully landscaped rotunda. The tree-lined avenue that stems from the securely-guarded, and welcoming entrance leads one to a collection of homes in the gentle colors of Mediterranean earth, seashells and sunlight.
