Day trip from Paris in December....Vaux le Vicomte or try something else

Jump to last reply

So, I have been enjoying From Paris to The Past by Ina Caro. I have always wanted to go to Vaux le Vicomte but realize that the gardens will not be in bloom in December (right after Christmas). So with that said, still worth it to go? I love the history here as it was the downfall of one man and without it, Versailles would not have been built or might be quite different. Any thoughts on how much would be lacking during a visit in December?

Or, will we really not get the full effect of Vaux le Vicomte without the gardens at their best and maybe we should consider something else? The other thoughts we have are Chartres or Tours, possibly. We are already planning to spend a day in Strasbourg during this trip. We have seen most of what we want to see in Paris and have been to Reims, Barbizon, Chenonceau, Fontainebleu and Versailles previously.

For those who have been to these sites, what were your favorites and which would be least impacted by lack of flowers and green trees? Which are still well worth it even if the weather is a bit dreary.
