An extraordinary and unforgettable evening in a refined setting outside of time and history.
You will be picked up directly at your hotel or apartment in Paris, and you will be brought back at the end of your excursion in a comfortable, air-conditioned minibus.
The Château of Vaux le Vicomte is a true masterpiece, inaugurated in 1661 by Nicolas Fouquet as his main residence. The best artists of the time worked on it: gardening and landscaping by André Le Nôtre, architecture by Louis Le Vau, paintings and decoration by Charles Le Brun.
This splendid domain, one of the most beautiful laid out in the seventeenth century, was so envied by Louis XIV that it served as the model for the construction of the Palace of Versailles and became the inspiration for châteaux everywhere in Europe.
Your evening will begin with a visit to the Carriage Museum. Discover magnificent coaches and teams of horses ranging from Roman chariots to nineteenth century Berlins.
Your dinner will then be served in "Les Charmilles", a restaurant located in the Château gardens (dinner includes hors d'oeuvres, a main dish, dessert, wine, mineral water and coffee). See a sample menu below*.
You will then visit the Château and its French gardens by the flickering lights of two thousand candles (audio-guides are provided in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish Russian and Japanese). Your visit will be accompanied by soft classical music in some parts of the gardens.
