Détails de l'événement

Sorrows slumber deeply.

Clocks don’t run on time.

Couch potatoes rest so sweetly

That dragonflies their clothes design.

Now be still. Don’t move there.

Into the shade you crawl

Join us in our idleness

Young and old and all!

Vera Pavlova

Jardin Remarkable of Moulin Jaune opens its doors in the weekend of Summer solstice.

Ferniente picnics ( the art of doing nothing) – endless Shavasana. Poetic landscape at the river bank. Raw power of Nature’s harmony. Time blissfully slowing down, birds chirping, water splashing, voices singing, hammocks and chaise-lounges, grass and straw bales. Summer fruits in your picnic baskets. Refreshing drinks in our bars.

Dress-code: White

How to get here


22 (Samedi) 11:00 - 23 (Dimanche) 19:00


The garden will stay open even if it rains. Bring your umbrellas or raincoats and breathe in the post-rain garden aroma. That’s exactly how gardens are enjoyed in Asia!

Children will be responsible for their parents and vice versa. Most of art objects at Moulin Jaune are rather fragile, so even though we encourage you to release your inner child, we also hope that you treat our garden with care and attention.

We always recommend to dress up according to the theme of the event if you really want to creatively plunge into becoming part of the atmosphere. For the June 22th-23th  we hope you choose to wear white.

We film and photograph all our events, so chances are our cameras might catch you. These images might later be used for promotional materials of any kind or be placed on our website or social media. Should you have any objections against this, please inform us first thing at the entrance.

Dogs can bring their owners, on a leash, only if wearing a theme-inspired accessory. We prefer, however, that dogs who find pleasure in duck-hunting or child-smooching stay home. We also trust that you bring a small waste-bag to clean after your four legged friend.

Seating. There are chairs, benches, straw bales, etc.  for picnics or breaks during the visit.

In case the event gets cancelled due to sanitary, geopolitical or any other unpredictable reasons, you can transfer your ticket to a later event or get a full refund if such transfer is impossible.

You can also offer tickets for any or all of Moulin Jaune escapades as a gift!
