Château de Vaux le Vicomte
This castle, which will later inspire the Versailles Castle, can be visited a hundred ways.
This splendid architectural wonder of the 17th-century was built for Nicolas Fouquet, Louis XIV's financial advisor.
Amazed at the splendour and jealous of the grander of this magnificent white stone castle, with French gardens designed by Le Nôtre, the Sun King takes inspiration for the future construction of the Versailles Castle. You can discover the Vaux-le-Vicomte Castle anyway you choose. Explore, for example, the 35 hectares of parks to experience the incredible perspective of the castle, in small electric cars that you hire on site. In the summer, relive the magic of the candle light festivals at night to the music of Mozart...
The games and enigmas, organised all year long, are sure to delight the children. While they amuse themselves in the gardens, take advantage of the view from the terrace of the Ecureuil, a café-restaurant located in one of the aisles leading from the castle.
