Some parts of the gardens are currently being restored for their long-term conservacy. Theses works do not prevent the visit of any part of the estate. Thank you for your understanding.

 

From April 23 to 26: short renovation of the façade

During 4 days, a small mobile scaffold will evolve around the four facades of the château for an urgent maintenance of the building’s façade. A security perimeter will be established for this works zone without hindering the visit circuit.

 

A necessary renew for the boulingrins parterres

Les buis morts des jardins de Vaux-le-Vicomte

The boxwood parterres of the boulingrins, aging and diseased, have been uprooted to make way for an ephemeral work of art, created especially for the estate, and chosen from candidate proposals. The project, titled “Ephemeral Ribbons” was inspired by Achille Duchêne’s designs for his boxwood arabesques, themselves inspired by Le Nôtre’s embroidery patterns, but in modern materials.


Duration: March to May. Inauguration in June
