Trip Planner: Europe / France / Ile-de-France / Seine-et-Marne / Maincy / Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte
Constructed entirely on a platform surrounded by a moat, Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte can be reached by one of two bridges. The Baroque architecture and estate plan here marked the beginning of the Louis XIV style, combining architecture, interior design, and landscape design. The garden's pronounced visual axis is an example of this style. Inside, you'll find Monsieur and Madame Nicolas Fouquet's apartments, furnished to depict their 17th-century aristocratic lifestyles and decorated with their favorite artworks. From the ground floor, you can see the garden and countryside. Children's activities, guided tours, and audio tours in English are available at the ticket booth. Just past the booth, you'll find the Horse and Carriage Museum, with large stables and ornate antique carriages.

The Castle itself so alive and so magical, the splendid gardens where you could make a picrique, dance a waltz, then, at nightfall, the magic of fireworks burning with gold and silver the golden façade of the Castle... We will return this winter and we are sure that this time again the magic will be there.
One of my favorite castle in France. You have to go to the candle light during summer. It’s a magic atmosphere with the castle lit with thousands of candles outside and inside.
Amazing experience to France's second largest owned property! Amazing host and staff superb service and magnificent French dishes. I will definitely revisit this Chateau..
