VAUX LE VICOMTE :
For an unrivalled insight into the fabulous château of Vaux le Vicomte, often considered the forerunner of Versailles, take one of the luxury small group tours offered by Driver Guide France.
Louis XIV, the "Sun King", was so envious of the splendors of Vaux le Vicomte that he decided to hire the principal artists involved in its creation: architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart, painter-decorator Charles Le Brun, and in particular landscape gardener André Le Nôtre.
Our luxury tours inside the château will enable you to discover the many glories of the château, including the wonderful ceilings painted by Charles Lebrun.
The iconography, mainly dedicated to Greek mythology, was to be re-used for the Sun King at Versailles.
Our small group tours also offer you the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful landscaped gardens.
Admire them from the top of the dome or stroll around them with your guide: the perfect way to appreciate the principle of gardens "à la française."
