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 2 hectares of gardens which are covered with almost 50,000 flowers in the spring, mainly irises.
The Château de 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.
21 april to 16 june 2019, everyday from 10am to 6pm
17 june to 28 july 2019, tuesday to sunday from 1.30pm to 6pm
In autumn, the Gardens are open every weekend in September and October and during the week during the October holidays.
For families – King Lizard opens the doors of his kingdom to the visitors. Sheltered from the trees, it shares its treasures and history with young and old.
Born from a generous nature sculpted by time, a kingdom is revealed to children. At the bend of a path under the secular trees, it tells the story of King Lizard. As if emotions and senses had been captured in their bark, dozens of trees facetiously hide the personality of more than 7 characters. A world made of nature, to touch, to see, to listen and to feel. The King Lizard’s Kingdom is a tribute to the richness of a preserved nature that generously offers its treasures. Let your imagination and creativity run free and it will become your Kingdom.
Ask for your map of the King Lizard’s Kingdom at the entrance of the gardens.
