Fontainebleau and Vaux-le-Vicomte

    • Fontainebleau and Vaux-le-Vicomte

      With its richness, complexity and power to surprise, the magnificent castle of Fontainebleau sums up the history of France.
      From Francis I (the castle was his favorite residence) to Napoleon III, each sovereign left a unique mark on the structure and its grounds.

      Vaux-le-Vicomte was the tragic setting for the downfall of Fouquet, a faithful minister who paid the price of life imprisonment, accused of an embezzlement he did not commit, victim of the jealousy of king Louis XIV.
      Vaux was a heaven for leading French artists. Writers, poets, painters and sculptors gave the best of their talents to the glory of Vaux.
      A preserved genuine masterpiece of French 17 century art. The architect, decorator and gardener who created Vaux-le-Vicomte are the same who will create Versailles.
