Villa Ephrussi celebrates the pumpkin

To mark All Saints’ Day and Halloween, the heavenly former residence of Béatrice de Rothschild on the Saint Jean Cap Ferrat peninsular is launching its first Fête de la Citrouille or Pumpkin Festival at the end of October.

The Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild's week-long event, which begins on 25th October and continues until the traditional day of Toussaint, 1st November, places the magnificent pumpkin at the centre of autumnal celebrations with a programme of tastings, artistic workshops and face-painting.

The famous gardens will be re-imagined for the festival so expect to discover a few large orange surprises in amongst the roses and fauna of the legendary estate!
