Candlelit visit to Chateau Vaux le Vicomte

Candlelit evening at Chateau Vaux le Vicomte

Last Saturday together with our Aussie friends we have spent an amazing evening at Chateau Vaux le Vicomte, just 60 km south-east from Paris.

Started our visit with proper French picnic in the castle gardens while waiting for the sun to go down and the candlelit evening to begin. Once the darkness has descended we set off for a stroll in the castle gardens, admired unexpectedly good firework spectacle, and ended it all up with a visit to the castle interiors, also lightened up by hundreds of candles.

An evening not to miss, highly recommended if you haven't seen it yet!

Update: just been decided - our next castle trip will be Thoiry (that animal reserve!)
