Create an itinerary including 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.

  • Beautiful castle though quite pricey. Well cared for and a well done audio guide in the price included. Impressive and important in history. A nice visit. Our daughter of 6 even enjoyed it. The food in the self service restaurant at the beginning is a recommendation! There is much to see and discover. If your kids want to dress up, they need to be at the dress room between 12 and 14.
  • Many people think this is the most beautiful chateau in France. There ia a parking just in the front gardens close at 7 pm but the last access to the chateau is at 4:45. We arrived at 4:30 and it was just for us nobody was there the parking was empty and only a small group of people in the castle. Highly recommended.
