"My husband and I began our honeymoon by staying 5 nights at Casa Verde in Castel Cellesi. We loved the whole experience. The house was perfect for our needs with full kitchen, including cooking utensils, 2 bathrooms ans a bedroom with a beautiful view of the valley. Eddie was very friendly, helpful, informative and accessible. He gave us a map and a full explanation of all the nearby sights worth visiting. With our rental car, we visited Viterbo, Orvieto, La Civita, Bolsena and montefiascone. All towns were unique and interesting. The food and wine were incredible. We would highly recommend Castel Cellesi to anyone looking for a relaxing experience that is a little bit off the beaten path."

Ferragosto in Castel CellesiSummer Festival
Ferragosto, the 15th August is the highpoint of the summer break in Italy. In the area of Castel Cellesi the many towns and villages of the area host festivals, and it is also a time of open air theatre and opera. Castel Cellesi is famous in the area for its festival centered around the 15th August. You will find people sitting, eating, chatting in the piazzas. Many people have their own street parties, to which almost any passerby finds himself invited, or at least offered a glass of wine.
The 15th August is the feast of the Assumption of Mary into heaven. Early evening there is the procession of the famous statue of Mary through the village, accompanied by the parish priest, the villagers, a local brass band and the Mayor.
For three evenings the village has dinner in the Piazza, accompanied by entertainment such as music bands and dancers. We even have a village wide bingo game on one of the evenings!
The highlight and culmination of the festival is on the last night, when at midnight we have a spectacular firework display, lasting a full 30 minutes and always voted the best in the area.
Your Ferragosto in Castel Cellesi could include the Castel Cellesi festival, and also visits to the many other fairs and festivals in the area.
