When to Come
Casa Capella is here to welcome you from the beginning of May through to the end of October. Each season has its own delights.
Spring is fresh with glorious light, and fields of wild flowers in abundance. Summers are dry and lazy - but not so overbearing that you can't move. Autumn is misty and atmospheric - a time for chestnuts on the fire, olive picking and wine making. For weather data averages, click here
