Make your way to southwest Paris and the Héliport d'Issy-Les-Moulineaux in the late afternoon of your scheduled tour to meet your pilot and climb into a helicopter. Take to the skies for a dazzling view over the tops of the city's most famous monuments on your way to the Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte.
During the 35-minute helicopter flight, see landmarks like Notre Dame Cathedral and the iconic Eiffel Tower from overhead, followed by the opulent Palace of Versailles and its surrounding gardens. Land at the 17th-century château near Maincy, roughly 37 miles (60 km) southeast of Paris.
The Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte predates Versailles and, in fact, served as the inspiration for France's most famous palace. The castle and its gardens were featured in the James Bond film, 'Moonraker.' It's one of the country's most beautiful castles, designed by Louis XIV architect Nicolas Fouquet.
Upon arrival at the historic estate, enjoy a 45-minute tour of the grounds by golf cart or make your way to the château itself for an audio-guide tour. See the rooms decorated with period furniture, tapestries and artwork. Explore the castle at your leisure in the time before dinner is served.
At dusk, the gardens come to life with the light of over 2,000 candles, and it's time to make your way to the restaurant in the castle for dinner. Enjoy a 3-course meal with wine and Champagne while you listen to classical music. The menu specifics vary, but you can choose from a beef and lobster meal or a vegetarian menu. All dishes feature seasonal and local produce. (See the Itinerary section below for a sample menu.)
