The Castle of Vaux

 The Château de Vaux was built in the town of Vaux-sur-Seine, Yvelines, two steps from Cergy, there, in the fifteenth century, Louis XI donated the land Vaux his barber and confidant Olivier Le Daim. It began construction of the present castle. But like all mansions, the castle was dramatically transformed over the centuries, the overall architecture often indicating the transition from one style to another. However, it has retained much of its original construction, especially its round towers. From the terrace, you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Seine Valley.

Until the Revolution, the lords exercised their authority and right high and low justice in the field of Vaux. Then the storm passed ... The castle changed hands several times and propriéaires the field was more or less fragmented.
