Full description
Enjoy an exceptional evening at Vaux-le-Vicomte Palace on a 7-hour program with departures from Paris. This enchanting château, a 17th-century masterpiece, inspired Louis XIV to build Versailles.

Your evening begins with a guided tour of the carriage museum, where you’ll see a collection of horse-driven carriages ranging from a Roman carriage to 20th-century saloons. 

Enjoy dinner at the château restaurant, L’Ecureuil, located in a wing of the outbuildings. Your 3-course candlelit dinner includes a complementary glass of red or white wine, water, and coffee.

The chef uses only the best seasonal products from local markets to prepare the high quality dishes. Vegetarian options are also available.

After dinner, at sunset, you can visit the château on your own and stroll around the gardens that are brilliantly lit by 2,000 candles. Learn about the history of Vaux-le-Vicomte Palace and France’s first palace garden, from your complimentary audio guide.

As you explore the garden you’ll be accompanied by recorded classical music, adding another special touch to the evening.

Nice evening

We had a nice evening. Photos with the booking are somewhat misleading. It's like having dinner outside next to the castle. This is possible, but then you have to opt for the more expensive option. The food was reasonable, not really fancy and candlelit atmosphere. But otherwise it was a nice evening. The visit to the castle is included and it is wonderful to be able to walk the garden of the castle (we had nice weather). At 11 o'clock there was a beautiful firework of about 6 minutes.

Well you should know the menu has no choices. I'm allergic to seafood and thats all they had. The restuarant did what they could to get me a meal. The chateau was beautiful! If I was to do it again I would pay for my own dinner ams just have them provide transportation. Overall great experience.
