We were greeted with a very very warm welcome. Villa Castollini is without doubt a beautiful place with a panoramic view over the Lagoon of Knysna. We enjoyed our stay especially the bar and the delicious breakfast.

My stay at the Villa Castollini was fabulous. Karen and her team made me feel at home. The service was top notch... the room I was staying in, very spacious and clean. Nothing to fault the place. The view and scenery from the Villa is superb, and will definitely recommend it to my family and friends. I had the most exciting holiday and stay at the Villa. Thank you.

We would like to thank Nan for having us to stay at her wonderful guest house. The views were amazing and although out of Knysna it was lovely to come back to the Villa and soak in the atmosphere. We would love to come back and stay longer.

Dear Nan We had little time at our departure last week to fully thank you for your hospitality during our visit. Both Maureen and I were most appreciative of the extraordinary attention to detail, which combined with the lovely house and stunning views made our stay so memorable. We shall certainly recommend you to our friends and hope to stay with you again when in the area. Sincerest regards Maurenn and John Hall
