Wasn't sure what to do with our day out in france, so decided to give St Joseph Village a try, well what a surprise, it was so unusually, yet so lovely, it was like going back in time, and seeing how france was then. It is suitable for all ages, theres a little resturant, and outside games, for all to... More

We were at the end of our little French adventure and needed something to do on our last day before we caught the ferry back home. We saw a leaflet for St Joseph's village in our hotel and thought we would give it a crack. Very pleasantly surprised. Even the kids enjoyed seeing how things were done "back in time"... More

This was our second visit to St Joseph's village as we wanted to show our friend how delightful it was. It really is like stepping back into a bygone age, with examples of shops a school and other delights - showing how they were in the "olden days" ( typically the 1930s ) There are also a pony / donkey...

We found St Joseph's Village, on a grey, chilly September day, a little soul less and slightly disappointing. It was very quiet - a little bit eerie - although the tavern was packed with people enjoying food and drink. An interesting place to spend 1-2 hours although the exhibits can get a bit repetitive. You do not need to be... More

Their is an excellent religious area with a beautiful small chapel and various shrines, with the main one being to Lourdes. Their is a bar, small café and shop. The site is mainly flat and accessible for the disabled. Their is ample free... More

We came here for an afternoon of fun as we were driving through the area. We are not great with our French speaking skills so we didn't 100% understand all that was going on. I totally get that we were in France, and they do speak French but for being an activity rated on Trip Advisor, even the most simple... More
