Le Château des Aventuriers, Avrille

#3 of 11 in Theme Parks in Vendee
Le Château 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.

  • Good time spent at the castle of adventurers. The course chosen: the secret of the pirates, not always easy to solve puzzles that can sometimes be difficult for children-5 years. If it's not nice there is a route in the Castle but reserved for children from 7 years old. Infrastructure are not amazing (you not take full eyes) but are very correct.

  • good afternoon, we had our daughter birthday with several of these friends (8 years), we discover the Park... In addition to the very good reception, what meets the eyes it is maintenance, it's just perfect there are certainly a lot of time spent on this post... Then the completed course was very attractive for children as for adults... time passes very quickly... a more positive comment is greatly deserved, the girls spent a very good time for a birthday and as they say "it's the best birthday of my life..." thank you

  • Children and adults can enjoy a moment of entertainment by appealing to our capacity of thinking through the proposed courses of puzzles. We were 4 adults and 4 children 2 to 10 years. Everyone had fun. The place is beautiful.

  • 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.
  • Great day out for kids, 10 and under. Fanastic value it takes 4 hours to go through the lot.
  • 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.
  • Great park, excellent fun for kids and a great setting.
  • Good fun for children.
