Chateau des Aventuriers, Avrille

#3 of 9 in Theme Parks in Vendee
Chateau des Aventuriers has undergone many transformations: as Château de la Guignardière, as Maison de Georges Clemenceau, and as an historic monument in 1978. A portion of the castle grounds has even been converted into an adventure park for children. The park is designed around the theme of a world exploration; this gives kids a chance to test their skills as historians as well as discoverers eager to find new lands. While the children explore ancient menhirs, or burial sites, and hunt for treasure amongst the bushes, tour the stone mansion and take in the luxury of times past within its stately rooms. With our world travel planner, Avrille attractions like Chateau des Aventuriers can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

    Tourist trap. Animation worthy of a school fair. Dinosaurs in resin damaged and not even animated. Shows pirates played very poorly. We toured in an hour. Any décor or music. I even understand that its still there is this poor quality parks. And all for 55 euros for 2 adults and 1 children... Scandal

    A thoroughly enjoyable day had by all. The pirate adventure is challenging enough to keep both children and adults entertained. The Dinosaur trail was well thought out and enjoyable. It certainly got ...  more »

    We spent an afternoon at the castle of the adventurers since June 2017. C ' is a great place. My two children (2 and 5 years old at this time) to keep an excellent memory and we parents also. Pirate course is great. The puzzles, well-designed and even the little 2 year old helped us to solve some. The Dinosaur Trail is very well done also. And what about the way you found to revive a castle with the application that has passionate daughter. Space western was closed that day, but there was good enough for everyone. Back in Vendee for the August recess, my son of 3 years (now) amazed us by recognizing the site on the flyers and cards of Vendée-tourism that it is set to "collect". In short, a wonderful place that I highly recommend to all people wishing to spend a very nice time with her children.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our day out on Easter Monday - "Free" easter egg hunt, for the children, free balloon modelling man making excellent balloon animals/people/things - wonderful. We enjoyed the dinosaur trial and the pirate trial, and the wild west land, didn't get time for the chateau. The children enjoyed the nice trials, just a long old walk with interesting things to look at or do - clues and things to keep them occupied. Lovely kept grounds and facilities. The bouncy castle area was wonderful and fun, as all bouncy castles are for children, and being part of the paid for entry is good. Good value for money. Would recommend. Our Sat Nav however, took us to the wrong place, just a junction in a road about 6 miles away! very odd, be ware... but it is easy to find and signposted once you get to Avrill.

    A superb place to spend a dry day. Lots of walking so be prepared. Lovely gardens to walk through, beautiful chateau and nice cafe and gift shop. Lots for the kids, inflatables, park, boats, nature trail, dinosaur walk, pirate trail and more. The chateau is excellent as you get given a tablet to play an interactive game or you can download it to your smartphone and play as long as it has NFC. Spent the full day there and had a ball, the kids (3,7 & 10) loved it as did my wife and I. Didn't feel it was too expensive either. If you take a picnic there is plenty of places to sit and eat. Excellent day out. The staff were all lovely and everyone we spoke to spoke English, which was a blessing for us.
