What to expect

Situtated in the middle of the countryside in the village of Maincy, the Vaux-le-Vicomte estate is a magnificent palace with extensive grounds. With a 350 year history, the chateau and its gardens offer visitors a real experience of what this type of life was like in the seventeenth century. Constructed for Nicolas Fouquet, superintendent of finance to Louis XIV, the chateau boasts the work of three of the greatest artists of the grand siècle: Louis Le Vau, Charles Lebrun and André Le Nôtre, architect, decorator and landscape gardener respectively. Louis XIV recruited the same team that built the Palace of Versailles, to construct this big house of splendour, and as a result it made the Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte into the inspiration of many palaces throughout Europe. Since 1875, five generations of the the Vogüé family has made it their duty to restore and preserve the section of the château that has been open to the public since 1968. Highly recommended are the candlelight visits every Saturday night from May to October, when more than 2000 candles light up the castle and gardens.
