This is a delightful place to visit for a bit of a change from the beach/standard holiday stuff. From a grownups perspective, the attention to detail is amazing and seeing some of the history of how people in the area lived is actually very interesting....More

This was memorable on all levels. The 10,000 hours spent on the construction of buildings, working model figures and machinery, leaves one only to marvel at the impeccable detail. Definitely a ‘must see’!

Unsure what to expect from reading the promo literature we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this exhibit. It was a very well put together representation of life in rural France in tomes past.Well worth it.
