Vaux le Vicomte - Sept 23

We went off on a day trip by bus to Vaux le Vicomte and Fontainebleau, two magnificent chateaux.The first was Vaux le Vicomte - built in the 17th century - and in addition to several magnificent houses with fantastic furnishings has a huge garden (separate post for that). Near the entrance there was a rack of fancy clothes that you could rent to wear while touring the house. We toured many rooms including the library, the attic, and the kitchen. From various windows you could see the garden.
