Chateau de Vaux-le- Vicomte is a 17th century, privately owned masterpiece that has been restored to its former glory with richly furnished and decorated rooms and wonderful formal grounds. To add a touch of ‘romance’, this evenings visit, will be via candlelight, where the breathtaking gardens and chateau will be illuminated by over 2000 candles creating a unique and memorable experience.


A lunchtime entrance to the lovingly restored Monet’s Garden at Giverny' It is a source of as much pleasure today as it was to its creator. Here, where the painter lived until his death in 1929, the perspectives, symmetries and colours of the flower garden and water garden were the inspiration for some of his most famous works.


We return to Calais for the ferry sailing to Dover, returning home during the evening.
