Mediaeval, Renaissance, and classical in style, several kings have left their mark on the château's history and construction. During your audio guide visit, explore the richly furnished château, its unique collections, and key pieces such as the throne of Napoleon I and the famous horseshoe-shaped staircase. You will also visit the château's spacious private apartments, which enjoyed all the comforts of the age. After the tour, explore the huge grounds surrounding the château, as well as its three picturesque gardens. Lunch at local restaurant followed by visit to Vaux the Vicomte, the château that inspired King Louis XIV to build Versailles. A masterpiece of mid-17th Century classical architecture, the château and its grounds were created by three talented artists working for Nicolas Fouquet, a rich, high-ranking French official and Louis XIV's superintendent of finances: the landscape gardener André Le Nôtre, the architect Louis Le Vau, and the painter and decorator Charles Le Brun. Enjoy the access to the dome of Vaux le Vicomte to contemplate the superb view over the castle park. Also take time to stroll in the splendid French garden of the 35-hectare estate with its sculpted shrubs, water features and splendid multicolored flowerbeds. Return to hotel for overnight.
