Enjoy a late-afternoon pickup by luxury car from your Paris hotel and head out of the city in style for the 1-hour journey to the famous Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte. Considered to be among the country's finest castles, this 17th-century Baroque masterpiece is the inspiration behind the Palace of Versailles and even featured in the James Bond movie Moonraker. On arrival at the castle, hop into a golf buggy and take a spin through the gardens. Or, head inside with your audio guide and explore the grand interior. Marvel at lavishly-decorated hallways and suites, tapestries and 17th-century furnishings. As you wander through the castle at your leisure, gain insight into its history and heritage from your audio guide. As evening begins to fall, head through the gardens, which shimmer with the lights of over 2,000 candles, and take your seat in the castle's grounds for your 3-course meal with Champagne and wine. If the weather is cold, your meal will take place inside a marquee, instead. Choose from a beef, fish or vegetarian menu, both of which use local, seasonal produce (see Sample Menu below). At the end of your meal, return to your luxury car and allow your driver to whisk you back to your Paris hotel, where your Vaux-le-Vicomte evening tour will come to an end.Earth Menu : - Smoked foie gras glazed with mango on an allspice biscuit, cranberry and goji berry chutney- Roast veal fillet with morel cream, Soisson bean velouté with crispy bacon- Double-chocolate crunchy praline with a hint of salt and Szechuan pepperSea Menu- Marinated gambas prawn and sea bass ceviche, black sesame shortbread and baby salad leaves with cider vinegar- Cod steak poached in cockle jus, sweet potato and yuzu cream, mini seared aubergine- Double-chocolate crunchy praline with a hint of salt and Szechuan pepper Vegetable Menu-Crunchy cucumber with pea and coriander broth, fresh herb mesclun salad-with mango vinegar- Tian of Provençal vegetables with aubergine caviar and piquillo pepper coulis- Double-chocolate crunchy praline with a hint of salt and Szechuan pepperDrinksOne glass of Champagne, half a bottle of wine per person, mineral water or soda and coffee?*Children’s menu also available for children under 12
