Vaux-le-Vicomte

Vaux-le-Vicomte

Thirty-four miles southeast of Paris is this Baroque style castle, built in the mid-17th century by the superintendent of finances to Louis XIV and still privately owned today. The château and its formal French garden were designed by architect Louis Le Vau, landscape architect André le Nôtre, and the painter-decorator Charles Le Brun; the trio who went on to work together a second time, this time for Louis XIV on the Versailles Palace.
