We are a group of 6 to 8 friends travelling together. Recently we have visited South Africa and included the Garden Route this time. What a wonderful surprise when we arrived in Knysna and reached Villa Castollini! Perfect location, splendid view, fantastic breakfast (THANK YOU, Nan & comp.) - in one word: the top of the iceberg on this route.... More

Stayed in the Honeymoon suite which was large and very comfortable. The view from the balcony ranged from the mountains to the left to the Indian Ocean on the right - gorgeous. Breakfast was great from he perfect hosts. No internet in room, otherwise perfect. Internet access in rooms is an issue from Cape Town to Durban in most B&B's

We could not fault Villa Castollini. From the reception to the beautifully appointed and luxurious accommodation to the imaginative and appetizing breakfast, as well as the overall warm hospitality, it was all really special. Congratulations to Nan, Patrick and staff.

What a beautiful place to stay. It is so relaxing. It has all the scenic views from atop the hill. The accommodation was great in the honeymoon suite. The owners were friendly and extremely helpful, the food was amazing. Lovely place to do a wedding.
