The Investigations of Vidocq

With the aid of a parchment, you can explore the whole estate as you follow a fascinating historical investigation! VIDOCQ will take you on a trail to find the clues hidden in every room of the château, which is still under the shadow of the ghastly happenings there.
When you reach the end of this challenge, you might well find the famous spy’s secret chest and pocket his daily reward…

The castle has had a complete facelift and is a fun, interesting place to visit for the whole family, open all summer up to the end of October.

Now that the extensive conversion and staging work is complete, the estate built by the famous architect of Louis XV (Germain Boffrand) lets visitors take a step back in time.
A few rooms in the château that still show the signs of 80 years of neglect can be visited via a photo exhibition and a film shot by a drone.  

Vaux is the castle of the “renaissance”.

Every visitor can contribute to the costly renovation work for the building in their own way: 1 ENTRY = 1 SLATE

Open EVERY DAY in JULY-AUGUST from 10:00 – 19:00 and weekends + public holidays in low season (May, June, September and October)
