The Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte is always spectacular but during Christmas, it is dressed to impress! Throughout the year, it is without doubt a beautiful palace but at Christmas it truly becomes a palace of enchantment. With over 2,000 candles, magnificent trees, lights and traditional decorations covering the rooms, it is the epitome of a grand Christmas.
The spacious, adaptable, and contemporary Novotel room is a true living space, perfect for all your needs. Make the most of our free WiFi and tea and coffee making facilities.
We make our way to Dover for the short crossing to Calais, we then continue to our hotel that is situated just south of Paris.
After breakfast we make our way to the city of love, Paris. After our arrival we will take a sightseeing river cruise along the Seine. Watch Paris twinkle as we are guided through all the main sights. This afternoon you will have some free time. Visit the Christmas markets along the Champs Élysées with their colourful lights and beautiful gifts and presents. More than 200 wooden stalls are filled with regional specialities, decorations, and local souvenirs.
Excitement is building as today we make our way to Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte. Decorated in a thousand and one colours, here you will really get into the Christmas spirit. Each room is decorated with a different theme, but the warm atmosphere and stunning decorations make them all flow into one joyful and festive experience that you will never forget.
Crackling fires keep you warm and cosy and pyramids of sweets and chocolate bring out the gourmet in you. In the centre of the Great Hall instead of the usual 8-metre-high tree, there’s even a Ferris Wheel inside the château – giving amazing roof top views!
Sadly, it’s time to depart, but before our crossing it’s time
to call for some all-important beverages for the festive period.
