What to expect

Nestled in the countryside in the village of Maincy, the Vaux-le-Vicomte estate is an absolutely stunning place. With a history spanning 350 years, the castle and its garden offer a living experience of the 17th century. The result of the visionary and passionate spirit of Nicolas Fouquet, the Superintendent of Finances for Louis XIV, it showcases the work of three of the greatest artists of the Grand Siècle: architect Louis Le Vau, decorator Charles Lebrun, and landscape gardener André Lenôtre. Louis XIV would later assemble the same team to build the Palace of Versailles, thus making Vaux-le-Vicomte the model that would inspire numerous palaces across Europe. Since 1875 and over five generations, the de Vogüé family has made it their duty to restore and preserve the estate, which has been open to the public since 1968. If you can, don't miss the candlelit tours every Saturday evening from May to October when the castle and gardens are illuminated with over 2000 candles.
