A journey through time at Vaux-le-Vicomte

Step back in time and immerse yourself in the grandeur of Vaux-le-Vicomte, a magnificent 17th-century castle in the French countryside. With your audio guide in hand, embark on a journey through history, marveling at the lavishly decorated rooms in the castle. Imagine grand soirees held in the Grand Salon of Lois XIV, adorned with tapestries of gold and silk. Wander into the Oval Cabinet, a more intimate space used by royalty for private audiences with gilded ceilings, and admire the exquisite period furniture as you stroll by.

A glimpse into the Carriage Museum and the gardens

Be dazzled by the sprawling French gardens designed by the legendary landscape artist Andre Le Notre. These meticulously landscaped grounds were the inspiration for the famous gardens of the Palace of Versailles. Stroll along leafy pathways and keep your eyes peeled for surprise sculptures and fountains amidst the manicured hedges of the lawn!

After taking in the beauty of the gardens, take a short walk to the Carriage Museum on the castle grounds. Step inside and be transported back to the 17th-century France. A collection of exquisite horse-drawn carriages from that era awaits you with life-sized figures of coachmen and footmen. Imagine hooves clattering on cobblestones as these carriages roamed the French streets!
