Full description
Experience an evening you will never forget! Your private limousine will take you to the magnificent 17th century Chateau of Vaux-le-Vicomte where you will visit the Chateau and its gardens before enjoying a gourmet candlelit dinner, concluding with a magical fireworks display. This unique and enchanting visit includes the amazing interior of the chateau with its exquisite private apartments and sumptuous state rooms. The interior is lavishly decorated with stunning gilded walls, statues, tapestries, and the era's finest furnishings

Another of the château's wonderful features is its amazingly beautiful Le Notre designed gardens, perfect for a moderate stroll or a golf cart ride. Complete with fountains, canals and stone curbs, the gardens contain a fascinating optical illusion, distorting its distance depending on from where you look at it.

At Vaux-le-Vicomte you can drive your golf cart to discover the wonderful gardens for up to an hour. You can also visit the inside of the Chateau at your leisure. As the sun sets the gardens and Chateau become illuminated by over 2,000 candles while you listen to classical music being played in remembrance of Louis XIV and the 17th century festivities that were held there.

Next, a 3-course gourmet candlelight dinner will be served in Les Charmilles restaurant in the château grounds including a glass of champagne and 2 glasses of red, rosé or white wine. The chef only uses seasonal products from the local markets to prepare your high quality dishes. Vegetarian and alcohol free options are also available.

And finally you can dream of all you have seen and admired as your limousine drives you back to your hotel (or drop off point of your choice in Paris).

This breathtaking Chateau is run by the fifth generation family owners and you may well bump into Ascanio, Jean-Charles or Alexandre de Vogue during your visit as they are regularly on the grounds.

Great trip, very atmospheric

We enjoyed the trip very much. The driver arrived early, and even accompanied us to the ticket counter. The staff there though weren’t used to having people with phone app vouchers, but we eventually made it in. We were supposed to meet someone inside to accompany us but since we saw no one, we continued to the carriage museum and eventually the gardens (the chateau opens at 7pm). We were told that we had to take the golf carts before visiting the chateau but then again, since no one told us we went for a stroll to the gardens, then the chateau and following that took a fast trip with the golf carts, so in the end we managed to do all of the things. The dinner was good with multiple options for those who prefer meats, seafood or vegetarian (a kids menu is also there). Just after the dinner the fireworks started, great show. And that was the end of our trip. Overall great trip and would highly recommend it.
