With its slate roofs topped with pinnacles, the Château de Vaugirard is a beautiful example of Classic architecture. Its reception room decorated with a fresco of Louis XIV's Grand Carrousel is a must.
Listed as a historic monument and classed as « remarkable mud brick construction”, the castle is a typical example of the more comfortable style of architecture introduced at the beginning of the 17th century. Take a walk in the castle gardens replanted in an English style in the 19th century, before going inside to discover the well proportioned , harmonious architecture of this castle. Admire the frescoes portraying the Grand Caroussel organised by Louis XIV, unique in France.
From 01/06 to 30/09 between 2 PM and 6 PM.
