The inside story

France’s Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte is a beautiful castle that can be found in the small town of Mainsy, just 55 kilometers south-east of Paris. It was first a small Château purchased by Nicolas Fouquet in 1641. He was a great patron on the arts and later became King Louis XIV’s minister of finances in 1653 and remained minister until 1661.

While he was the government’s superintendant of finances he had the castle rebuilt and expanded, including rooms for the king and a beautiful French garden surrounding the castle, designed with the science of optical illusion, giving a special perspective onto the gardens from the chateau.
