Villa Castollini
Villa Castollini: Refinement in the Forrest. At Villa Castollini, remaining a successful five-star getaway means living by the philosophy that “nothing is too much trouble”. This private, luxurious, and yet comfortable haven is situated high up on the western head of the Knysna Heads (world-famous for their beauty) and lies nestled amongst these majestic mountains and spectacular forests; a mere stone's throw away from the much-loved town of Knysna. The Villa offers diners an exceptional menu that will entice and enchant and is sure to satisfy even the most refined appetite, from sunrise to sunset, in an exquisite setting. State of the art security and remote controlled access provides the peace of mind essential to a comfortable getaway experience, and once you're rested and relaxed custom-made itineraries can keep things entertaining, while the free Wi-Fi on offer will keep you in communique with the outside world (should you want to.) Situated so close to the Simola and Pezula golf courses and the natural beauty and attractions of the Garden Route, Villa Castollini stands above its competitors, not only as a getaway resort but also as a class act wedding & function
