Bye bye Summer at Vaux-le-Vicomte Castle

All good things come to an end… and so does Summer! I must confess that I’m a Summer lover as it combines everything I love: travel, sunny and warm weather, beach, ocean, sailing, al fresco dinner… and Summer food is also so delicious!

But Fall has so much charm too that I’m really impatient now to update the decor in our house and savour everything this beautiful season has to offer.

Last year, we had the pleasure to visit the Vaux-le-Vicomte Castle where is thrown every Saturday evening of Summer a candelit evening.

As you probably know, Vaux-le-Vicomte is the famous castle that inspired the Palace of Versailles. It was built by the Superintendant of Finances of Louis XIV, Nicolas Fouquet. The story tells that the King became jalous of of his superintendant after a magnificent party at his (a little too) fabulous castle. He decided to imprisone him and took his castle… A lesson to remember next time we’ll be tempted to impress our guests 😉

Anyway the Castle is absolutely gorgeous indeed and has more charm in my opinion than Versailles.The candlelit evening was a magical time that you can’t miss if you have the chance to attend to it! It will be possible until the 1st of october… so hurry up if you’re in Paris this weekend! A nice way to end Summer, and to begin the new season with stars in the eyes!
