Christmas at the Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte

At Christmas, from the end of November until mid-December, the Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte is bedecked with glorious Christmas trees, flickering candles, glittering decorations and roaring log fires. There are delightful horse-drawn carriage rides in the gardens, traditional Christmas specialities and choirs singing seasonal tunes. An enchanting festive atmosphere is guaranteed!

Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte
We spend today enjoying Christmas at Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte, admiring the 17th century Château’s enchanting makeover in celebration of the festive period. The
stunning gardens and grand Château come alive with Christmas colours, with twinkling lights and glitzy decorations covering the vast building and grounds, while the festive scent of cinnamon and ginger fills the air. We stroll the Château’s rooms and courtyard, revelling in the magic of Christmas, and can enjoy horse-drawn carriage rides in the gardens and the sound of carol singers to get ourselves firmly in the festive mood.

Day 3 Paris/Château de Fontainebleau
Today we could make our way into central Paris to continue the festive theme with a visit to some Christmas markets, or we could opt for a gentle river cruise instead, enjoying the city sights from the water. Alternatively, we could visit the impressive Château de Fontainebleau, one of the largest royal châteaux in France, to explore its lavish interiors and 130 hectares of parkland and gardens.

Day 4 Departure
After breakfast, we begin our journey home.
