Magnificent Chateaux & Abbey Proposals

Looking for somewhere unique, grand and unusal to propose. Consider consider a French Chateau like Versailles or Cistercian Abbey Vaux de Cernay founded in 1118 and now a luxury hotel and restaurant, located in the Vallee de Cheuvreuse near Rambouillet, a former medieval fortress, which was acquired by Louis XVI in 1783 as a private residence because of its ideal situation in the game-rich forest of Rambouillet.

Imagine an evening at Chateau Vaux le Vicomte, strolling through its magnificent gardens when the candles are lit and at 10.50am the fireworks start. Vaux was the model model for the gardens of Versailles, illuminated by 2,000 candles and every Saturday during the summer a firework display. The castle and created by Le Vau, Le Brun and Le Notre for the Nicolas Fouquet, who gave Louis XIV the idea to built Versailles, and at the same time who was punished for his insolence. That anyone other than his royal self could own such a splendor could not be tolerated by the Sun King. As a result the castle became the tragic setting for the downfall of Fouquet, a faithful minister who paid the price of life imprisonment, because of an embezzlement he did not commit and jealousy of the king and others. For ten years under Fouquet's protection, Vaux was a haven for leading French artists, poets, painters and sculptors who gave it their best talent.
