Travel to France’s finest private house

Inot a palace with one of the greatest stories in French history — a minister overshadowed his king only to be dragged down into nowhere. It is the long and short story of Nicolas Fouqet, King Louis XIV, and the wonderful Vaux-le-Vicomte, a chateau south of Paris that is the subject of an exciting new coffee table book by Flammarion, Vaux le Vicomte: A Private Invitation. The book is the latest pick to our series of stunning new coffee table books related to travel, Just booked.

Despite its thrilling plot and its central role in the development of the French style – architect (Le Vau), decorator (Le Brun) and landscape designer (Le Notre) both continue to design Versailles — Vaux-le-Vicomte doesn’t have as much of an impact on tourists’ imaginations as other French castles. This new book, with text by Guillaume Picon and photographs by Bruno Ehrs, hopes to change that. The rooms photographed are gorgeous and have eye-catching views — some once rivaled the oval Grand Salon overlooking Le Notre’s Baroque garden. The amazing thing is that the house is still privately owned, by the de Vogüé family.
