Description

Take your inner aristocrat out for a walk, with a visit to the jaw-dropping grandeur of Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte. Wander the ornate halls with refined dignity, stroll the sprawling manicured gardens (spare a thought for the gardener), and refine your idea of expensive taste!

Thinking about building a grandiose palace surrounded by vast manicured gardens? Get some inspiration at Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte! This is where the Palace of Versailles was dreamed up, and ooh la la, it's obvious!

Explore this extravagant Baroque masterpiece at your own pace, or with an optional audio guide that will fill in every decorative detail of the palace's opulent facade, lavish rooms, formal French gardens and Carriage Museum.

Drink in the dramatic views across the gardens from the enormous dome, make some interior design notes in the King’s Room and the Grand Salon, and see where decadent royal banquets were cooked up in the basement kitchens.

Just try not to imagine what the monthly heating bill must be.

Insider tip

Landscape architect André le Nôtre designed many of the gardens' features to be narrower at one end, so they actually appear smaller than they are. This way the visitor is perpetually surprised by the actual size. This trick doesn't show up in photos - it has to be experienced in person!

Enchanting historical visit of a beautifully maintained house and garden
Sep 11, 2018
Belles soirée .. dommage que la musique du feu d artifice ne soit pas en relation avec l époque du chateau ... genre Lully.. couperin.... ou autre de cette epoque.. de plus lors de la visite aux chandelles il serait super d avoir des musiciens en costume pour accueillir les visiteurs... je suis musicienne violiste et j ai deja joué lors de visites aux chandelles... ça emporte encore plus les visiteurs ... c est juste mon point se vue!!!

Très beau château. Les jardins sont juste superbe et immense

Il ne m'a été proposé le billet soirée ce qui m'a obligé de le faire sur place, nécessitant une manip supplémentaire. Heureusement, l'hôtesse a été très efficace et très agréable.

Le château est superbe, des meubles et tableaux de qualité.
Quant aux jardins même un peu grillés par la sécheresse de l'été ils sont un modèle de l'art de Lenotre.
L'audioguide est très bien fait et indispensable pour visiter le château.
Le seul bémol c'est la qualité de la restauration assez médiocre. ...

Il se dit que Vaux-le-vicomte de Nicolas Fouquet est la plus belle maison de France! Par respect pour Louis, roi Soleil peut-être... N’hésitons pas à affirmer que Vaux est le plus beau château de France et d’ailleurs. N’en déplaise aux inconditionnels de Versailles et d’ailleurs, Vaux, château et jardins, est une merveille!
Felicitations aux de Vogüé, merci aux mécènes et que les visiteurs continuent à s’y précipiter !
