Exhibition | Celebration | church service


Each year on the second Sunday in August, we celebrate the traditional Cassel Festival on the grounds of Villa Cassel. On this day, our doors are open to locals and holiday guests. We look forward to welcoming you! 
Open day 
After the open-air service, there’s good food, musical entertainment and a competition on the programme, not to mention fascinating guided tours of the historic Villa Cassel and numerous other attractions for young and old. 
The tradition lives on. 

The Festival is the continuation of a tradition that began with the man who built Villa Cassel, Sir Ernest Cassel. He always did what he could to foster good relationships with the local population and invited them to his home once a year in August for food, drink and dancing on the grounds of Villa Cassel.
