Jardins des iris

Les jardins du Château de Vullierens

The Vullierens Gardens in the Morges hills are an absolute oasis of beauty. The chateau, with its view over Lake Geneva and the Alps, is the precious guardian of 30 hectares of gardens which are covered with almost 50,000 flowers in the spring, mainly irises.

The Château of Vullierens Gardens near Morges are the most delightful setting for nature excursions, offering visitors a stunning walk through irises, lilies, roses and ancient trees.

Open during the iris flowering season – from May to mid-June – the garden is a riot of colour with more than 50,000 flowers representing more than 400 varieties.

Although the house itself is not open to the public, the gardens have a lot to offer, with a collection of about 50 sculptures which changes every year, local wine tastings and a restaurant serving delicious meals and Sunday brunch.

Children visit for free and can enjoy the treasure hunt and story trails. Guides can tell you all you want to know about the history of the gardens and their creator, Doreen Bovet. Booking is required.

In spring, the gardens are open from May 3 to June 14, 2020, Monday to Sunday from 10am to 6pm. The Café des Jardins opens on May 13th and the shop on May 11th.

In summer, the estate is open from June 17 to August 23, Wednesday to Sunday from 1:00 pm to 5:30 pm. Gallery and Shop open. The Café des Jardins is closed, but snacks are available at the entrance.

In autumn, we are open every weekend from August 29 to October 25 from 1pm to 5.30pm. Gallery and Shop open. The Café des Jardins is closed, but snacks are available at the entrance.
