This is like visiting the châteaux of the valley but is a parc and fun for children. They can relate to the castles better than on the site of each one. Small models show them everything.

Ok, the castle are nice, the kids will be able to look around and play in the (few) attractions, but let us be honest: this was very expensive compared to any other activities available in the area. I would not recommend

This was a great place for adults and children to see the castles of the Loire valley without having to drive to all of them. It's spacious and the the artistry and design of the castles are fantastic.

Surely a venue which will fail to survive. Although models are well constructed and gardens well tended, there just isn't that much for a family to do. One model train was running. The kids bounced on the bouncy castle and drove the model boats ,...More
