Day trips from Paris

I will be going to France the beginning of May. I will have a total of six days in Paris and would love any recommendations for some day trips from the city.

Thanks for any information that will help.

My vote is for Vaux le Vicomte. It was designed and engineered by the same 3 men who later were requested [sic] by Louis XIV to create Versailles. The architectuaral innovations of the building are marvellous and the interior decorating and painting is of the highest order. No wonder techy Louis had a fit when he saw it and demanded even better for himself.
Much of the bulding has been restored with some beautiful furniture.

One of the tour companies has a tour that goes to both Vaux and Fontainebleau in one day. A little much, perhaps, but certainly a day full of interest and big lessons in French history.
I would dearly love to return to both Vaux le Vimcomte and Fontainebleau.
