We visited with 2 small children. They were preparing for a medieval fete to take place in a few days time. We felt like a nuisance to them. The children were asked not to touch anything and not to run across the courtyard. The “farm”...More

This is a nice place to visit if you have smaller kids. There are live demonstrations which can be funny and interesting if you understand French. The small exhibit of the Schlumberger family was what I enjoyed.

Like stepping into a medieval film set. Look out for the many events on. There's a local ticket booklet that gives 1€ off coupons

This was a very entertaining and informative medieval village. The reenactments were lively and they had great interaction with the audience. Given that we didn't speak a lick of French, they still made us feel welcome and tried their best to include us and explain...More

This is actually a motte and bailey castle with manor farm buildings round the outside. Other reviewers have mentioned the re-enactments that took place but when my son and I visited, we had the place virtually to ourselves. The staff at the gatehouse were really...More
