The Vaux le Vicomte estate forms a unique whole that spans nearly 500 hectares. It is testament to an era and the fruit of the bold vision of Nicolas Fouquet, Superintendent of Finances under young King Louis XIV. 

Vaux le Vicomte was created by the fraternal talents of three great artists. Stunned by the splendour of Vaux le Vicomte Castle, King Louis XIV commissioned the same three genuises to create Versailles, including André le Notre, who designed the spectacular gardens at Versailles.
