A canon programming

The good reason to discover this magical place? “ Les Muses de Montparnasse ”, an arty rendezvous under the patronage of the Vallée Village with the conductor Maxime Pascal at the DA

On the program, an exhibition of photographs by Man Ray with his muses Lee Miller , Nusch Eluard and Juliet Browner .

Another highlight of the festival: the screening of the surrealist film Le sang d'un poète by Jean Cocteau .

Poetic performances are invited in the garden with dance solos by T atiana Julien and jazz concerts set the tone for the aperitif.

The concert line-up: Duo Lovers from 5 p.m. to 5.30 p.m. signs the electro part every afternoon with Giani Caserotto in concert from 7 p.m. in the courtyard to take over Miles Davis or Juliette Gréco ...

We like: the champagne and absinthe bar and the ephemeral café for a cool brunch or a drink.
