"Lovely house, and a wonderful stay overall!"

We had a great time at Castellino...particularly appreciated the well appointed kitchen, as we are cooks. The house is comfortable and the dining places in and outdoors are great. The outside chairs are very comfortable and we had several long dinners outside watching the moonrise.

Thank you for your review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Castellino.
