Evenings by candlelight
Every Saturday, the château de Vaux-le-Vicomte once again dives into the good old days, with its magnificent evenings by candlelight.
There are no fewer than 2,000 candles lit in the Evenings by candlelight evenings: both inside the château de Vaux-le-Vicomte (designed by Le Vau and decorated by Le Brun) and in the magnificent garden designed by Le Nôtre. This is the exceptional decor in this splendid private property, which is the largest to be classified as an historical monument, and which earned the admiration of Louis XIV.
The aim: to allow the public to relive a page of the history of the place: that of the feast of 17th April 1661, given by the great patron Nicolas Fouquet. To recreate this atmosphere, visitors will be accompanied by classical music during their visit. Food lovers will be able to enjoy this magical setting by dining on the terrace of the Les Charmilles restaurant, which offers an unbeatable view of the château, illuminated. A fireworks display closes these evenings in fine style!
