  • Hello, it is always a pleasure to visit this amazing place, especially if the weather is good. Starting from the station on a train to another time and crossing of the forest Landes before you arrive on the site a few minutes later. Station including toilets, a box of free food or a restaurant with a menu with local products. Then you have the choice between free or guided tour (depending on the number). Leave to the discovery of the various trades of the past, old Landes farmhouses to the charm still intact. The Miller who explains and shows us how we used flour, Baker offering breads and cakes cooked in an old oven of yesteryear through the person who explains the operation of a loom in short children out of there amazed. We give the wool in a farm, we play games of old wooden. A little further away from the laughter comes from an old barn where three people give a little comedy show. There are also animals, flora to discover throughout your walk. You will discover a world forgotten or ignored where it was known to live in communion with nature. Go courage that really deserves a little effort!

The tour is done at the option of the desires, see how lived our ancestors eat a bread made with real wood fire, animals in freedom, or almost. Find in middle of the Landes forest, every turn, there's something to see.. .easy on the eyes instructive walk. It is to do with family or friends. Do or again

  • . Not a theme park, a journey back in time” A very pleasant day can be spent here - we have visited several times and enjoyed it each time. TIP 1 Find out the times of the little train that takes you there, otherwise you'll be waiting at the station with nothing to do (there is no road access) TIP 2 Buy the fresh-baked bread made from flour milled on the premises - gorgeous! TIP 3 Very young children will be bored and fractious - it's not a theme park, there are no rides or slides. Ages 7 and above. TIP 4 take bottles of water and hats in the summer months - it can get very hot moving round. How many years have we been coming here? Too many to count! But the fact that we keep coming back tells you something very important: it's worth it. From catching the little olde-worlde train to get here, to peering inside the old houses and farm buildings, to walking around the lovely grounds and to learning (re-learning!) so much about life in the past, it's a great experience. Not for the toddler age group, but even teens will find something of interest. Especially as there's no wifi, so they will HAVE to ignore their phones! .
  • Nice atmosphere, you really get the idea how it was back in the end of the 19th century, living in an ancient French village.
  • For a very attractive entry price (not even €40 for a family), we access the site for the entire day. We can start by the Museum in front of the train station, then take the train (at will) to get to the village of Marqueze. Change of scenery, we forget everything in our world to delve into the past. The site is beautiful, "locals" do us discover their village and the trades of another era, and I recommend you as long as you are there to have lunch at the restaurant, because the food is also delicious as they are surprising, the well stocked plates, and again for a very reasonable price. Are you fun, find, and let your children discover a village where time has stopped and peaceful, with a rich culture to discover.

  • Here we brought together the buildings and objects that tell the peasant life in the Heath in the 19th century. I go there for years with the same pleasure, as the place grows regularly. There are elements of a farm of the era, with its field of rye and millet, his garden, his garden, his animals (pair of oxen hitch, pig in his pen, sheep and free-range geese troop, hive). The mill is in operation and grinds the grain harvested in the field to the millstone. The wood cooked the bread from the oven, for sale on-site. I recommend especially the bun at the ham (a generous slice of raw ham, slipped into the dough at the same time she cooked) and tasty pastis landais. Access to this place by a small train. Young and old spend pleasant hours both informative and fun. Note that some animations have place in season, including the Easter omelette, the sick or the harvest.
