Christmas at Château de Vaux le Vicomte 2017

For Christmas, from November 25, 2017 to January 7, 2018, Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte turns into an enchanting castle. With its tale-like decors, its lights and the coming of Saint Nicholas, little ones and grown-ups are about to be happy.

Château de Vaux le Vicomte celebrates Christmas with a charming decor. While the Château is closed in the winter, it opens some days from November 25, 2017 to January 7, 2018. The Voguë family welcomes little ones and grown-ups in a décor entirely devoted to Christmas holidays.

An enchanting visit for the greatest pleasure of couples and families looking for magical and exceptional moment in the gardens à la française.

Noël 2017 à Vaux le Vicomte

On the menu, a visit of the Château, the Carriage museum and the gardens in a magic and welcoming atmosphere made of thousands of light garlands and giant trees. As soon as we arrive, the magic works with an alley of fir trees outside the Château, like a red carpet of greenery...

This year, the Chateau guarantees to set candy-lovers dreaming: the different state rooms will unveil a treasure house of hard candies, pyramids of chocolates and mountains of other sweet treats for ultimate sweet moments materializing by free tastings of gingerbread by Maison Fossier (and tastings of hot chestnuts, yule logs and mulled wines, subject to a fee)!

If the weather is mild enough, you can enjoy a walk in the garden thought up by Le Nôtre, it’s covered in a multitude of light garlands making box trees and lawns sparkle while a majestic 8-m tall deer rules over the gardens à la française: for a unique moment, horse-drawn-carriage rides are offered in the French formal gardens.

As night falls, the garden glimmers with thousands of strings of lights hidden in the box trees and the topiaries under the watchful eye of an angel and the majestic 8-m tall deer.

In order that everyone leaves with a souvenir of this day, a surprise and a slice of gingerbread expect children (under 8 years old) at the end of this enchanting ride.

In short, here’s how to be amazed and left in awe.
