Vaux-le-Vicomte has everything of a fairylike castle. Every season, this historic venue manages to rock us with a magical program. In the winter, the Christmas sets and the light & sound show enchant children. With sunny days around the corner, this Île-de-France castle – that inspired the one in Versailles – invites us to enjoy an oneiric experience to live with your close ones out.
Welcome to the candlelit evenings of the Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte! On Saturday evenings, from May 14 to October 1, 2022, as well as on Friday nights from July 8 to August 26, 2022, enjoy a moment untouched by time, making you feel like you are daydreaming. These nighttime tours invite you to discover this splendid monument in a soft light, and walk around the 33-hectare garden lit by 2,000 candles.
This is the perfect romantic night! Lulled by baroque music, walk this fairylike setting. On the occasion, water displays take place from nightfall in the fountains. You can complete this gorgeous experience with a romantic dinner at the Charmilles, enjoy a glass of champagne and macarons at the Songe de Vaux or even have a picnic in the grass in the picnic area. Last but not least, for an exceptional moment, the dome of Vaux-le-Vicomte, perched 25 meters (82 feet) in the air with 360° views, can be rented for a romantic dinner. But this option is now sold out!
Last but not least, to close this oneiric moment, a fabulous gold and silver firework show will rip through the air. For the show, Jean de La Fontaine’s voice – performed by André Dussollier – takes you 360 years back to make you relive the party on August 17, 1661, that marked the spirits until today!
