Chateau de Vaux le Vicomte

Vaux-le-Vicomte is an ornate chateau with a domed roof surrounded by lush green landscape. The chateau represents the mid-17 the century architectural design. It has an expansive, lush garden that looks great throughout the year. Nicolas Fouquet, who once served as finance minister for the king of France, purchased the Chateau in 1641. Taking a tour of the Chateau inside is informative and entertaining at the same time. The place is festively decorated during the Christmas season with different themes. The chateau is built on a moated site that is accessed using two bridges that are aligned with the central axis and placed on the south and the north side. The bridge over the moat on the north side leads to a forecourt from avant court. It is flanked on the sides by raised terraces with the layout evoking the cour d'honneur of medieval houses in France with the entrance of the court enclosed by domestic quarters and housing kitchens. Vaux-le-Vicomte chateau has been the scene of various international films including James Bond film the Mookraker (1979), The Man in the Iron Mask (1998), and TV series American Revolutionary War (2006). Visitors can access the area from Paris by taking the RER D train that takes around 45 minutes to reach here.
