On Saturday, May 3rd and Sunday, May 4th the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild in St. Jean Cap Ferrat will be hosting a rose festival with seminars and workshops throughout the day from 10h00 to 18h30.
This is its fifth year and in 2013, there were 10,000 visitors. It is a great time of year to see the roses. There are various workshop (ateliers), flower stands, and talks about the many flowers and plants. The French Rose Society will be holding conferences, as well. The gardeners will be doing guided tours and holding floral arrangement workshops, etc.

Come & enjoy – take time to smell the roses!
Oh, I wish I could be there 🙂
It’s a great place to visit any time of year – the gardens are indeed magnificent.
Visiting the gardens at Villefranche is also an excellent project after the 10,000 festival-goers have left. We’re thinking about next week.
Thanks for sharing the info – sounds lovely too!
Have been to the Ephrussi years ago. Unforgettable.
Many happy memories of that area.
Thanks for liking my posts.
My pleasure – great to hear you enjoyed your visit!
