The Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte is a baroque French château located in Maincy, near Melun, 55 km southeast of Paris in the Seine-et-Marne département of France. The château was built from 1658 to 1661, and was an influential work of architecture in mid-17th century Europe. The collaboration of Vaux-le-Vicomte, the architect Louis Le Vau, the landscape architect André le Nôtre, and the painter-decorator Charles Le Brun marked the beginning of the “Louis XIV style” combining architecture, interior design and landscape design.   (excerpts from Wikipedia)
