“A good couple of hours”
Review of Le Bournat

Le Bournat
Ranked #1 of 13 things to do in Le Bugue
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We visited the village and enjoyed it. We know very basic French , but managed to grasp what everything was, we didn't understand the workshops as they were in French, but enjoyed watching! It was busy with bus loads of French school or nursery children, ( a bus mans holiday for us) !, but still we had fun, we enjoyed playing the old style games, knocking down tin cans, bowling, hooking hoops, boules and the old fairground rides ! It isn't a theme park as we know it like Walton towers etc, it is more similar to the iron bridge village experience in the uk !! It cost E12.40 each I think.

Le Bournat is a pretty expensive place to visit for four 4 people, but does have some nice attractions and interesting workshop. On the day we went 80% of the attractions and craft areas were operating.
Its the sort of venue that may appeal to very young children, i.e. not teenagers , as the rides are quite tame and are old fashioned as part of the park theme...old village at the turn of the century.
Breadmaking, pottery class, dray rides, are various other workshops will let you make a long or short visit depending on your interests. Its a pretty setting with old houses set up as they would be in the old days. Entry was circa 12 euro per adult with no discount for the older couple we took with us.

Having visited Beamish in Northumberland we were perhaps unfairly expecting more than was available her in the small town of Le Bugue in the Dordogne. To describe itself as a Theme Park may be slightly above the mark if you are expecting Disneyworld or Alton Towers. It has a "charm" which is attractive with various artisans working on their different crafts - wood turning, baking, pottery and corn weaving among others - and there are rides for young ones but overall we a little underwhelmed by the experience and the entrance cost of 12.90 euros was quite a lot for what we got!! Perhaps if we had had our grandchildren with us it might have been more exciting.

I holiday'd here at the end of August - lovely town and a great market - hope to return some day. We had lovely weather and all the 'locals' seemed very helpful and polite.

Third time round with kids aged 4, 8 and 12. Recent investments have paid off (for the 20th birthday of the site) , better food, updated rides, staffed activities etc. The concept works well, a good mix of learning for younger ones and adults and fun on the old fashioned rides. Don't miss the picture dressed up in 1900 costumes (at extra cost but well worth it, the lady is very nice and patient) and the flour mill amongst other activities. You'll need at least 2 hours and kids never want to leave. Next door there is the Aquarium, only 10 mins away from les Eysies and 5 mins from the Gouffre de Proumeyssac. Be aware that on market days and at the height of season, the tiny village of Le Bugue has HUGE traffic jams. We paid 48 euros to get in, 2 adults and 3 children.
