So where is Hugo Drax’s gargantuan mansion in Moonraker (1979) in real life?
Nope, not in California as the movie says…It’s Vaux-le-Vicomte, a 16th century chateau just southeast of Paris, France.
It’s a popular architectural wonder from the times of Louis XIV, which can be visited today. You can check out their official site here: http://www.vaux-le-vicomte.com/en/
Quite the spread:
Or as 007 would say, “Magnificent.”
