Halloween break in Limoges, France

Since 1996, Limoges has gone all out to celebrate Halloween. Around 30,000 people come into the city to watch a street parade of ghosts, ghouls and goblins carrying candlelit pumpkins, tell spine-chilling stories and to join the parties held at many of the town’s bars and cafés.

Why not combine the festivities with a gîte holiday in France? Stay in a charming converted stable, 40 km from Limoges, from £228. The price is for one week’s self-catering rental of the property from 25 October to 1 November and is based on two adults and two children sharing.
