Such a great place!! Pool was brilliant and the house just perfect!! A dream place and location, amazing for my bike rides as well.
We greatly enjoyed our stay – it is a lovely house and grounds.
We had the best time lovely spot and very comfortable, all needs catered for.
We had a pleasant holiday at Castellino despite the thundery weather during the first week. It is a beautiful house and Vincenzo was very helpful and friendly. We had a great holiday.
We had a wonderful time at Castellino- what a fantastic place. Thank you. I am afraid we broke a couple of wine glasses when we were there. Just thought I should let you know
The house was fantastically positioned above the village and with so many wonderful places to visit close by. The house itself was wonderfully comfortable and spacious and the pool was AMAZING!
We would love to go back one day or perhaps try another of your wonderful houses! We were so lucky with the weather and returning to England feels sooooo cold!!
We have just spent a fabulous 2 weeks at Castelino. It is a wonderful house and thank you very much for dealing with our booking so efficiently.
We had such a wonderful time at Castellino, mostly spend relaxing by the fantastic pool and eating on the veranda staring at the view. We all wished we could have stayed for 2 weeks!
We find the house and the situation attractive and will certainly consider to come again. The proximity of Mercatale is also a plus, we find, albeit for watching the World Cup matches with the locals.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay as usual, and had excellent weather -30 plus degrees all week. We are planning to book again next year.
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. Perhaps it was our last trip to Italy and was totally fun. We have appreciated all of the properties of Gorgacce that we've rented over the last 15 years or so and continue to recommend you to our friends. Umbria is a beautiful place. Thanks again.
