  • The tour begins with a video re-enactment of life in a medieval village rain during a year: exciting and informative! The tour continues in the fields: a bit long because the site is large and there are few animals. On the other hand, the medieval garden is very successful and also farms. My daughter was thrilled by the second part but regretted the lack of animals and got bored during the visit in the fields and garden. We will miss only the lack of info on the site of the farms (don't expect a true ecomusée Marqueze style with staff in costumes and rebuilding of old trades with real people)

  • go running:-visits to farms reconstituted at the time of the middle ages - everything is done to be in the range of 4 to 77 years! -Discovery instructive without being off-putting since we walk in nature and we discover with each step information on plants grown at this time, but also how to live on a daily basis and the animals that made up the habitat to 1400 who are at the origin of this titanic work... are simply lovers of history and the transmission of knowledge : but in a fun way! Bravo! We stayed there for 2 h 30...

  • Tres agreable et interessant pour petit et grand. Really good place to visit for kids and grown up. Interesting and freindly.
  • A must-see! We stayed there for 3 hours and it was far too short. The place exudes serenity, quiet balance. An afternoon with meditation...
