Château de Talmont, Talmont Saint Hilaire
(4.3/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
Château de Talmont was burned down by Louis VII in 1138, but even still it has remained in the family. The ruins of the castle are a historical monument that harkens memories of knights and armor, flags and battles. Stroll the grounds and complex to discover crumbled ramparts being reclaimed by nature, and stones that tell stories of Richard the I of England, who was lord of Talmont for 17 years.

  • Two shows: the Eagles and Knights are both to see! Children have very well hung and we also we could ask questions before the show to the healers and watch the birds children can dress up few minutes to take a photo every activity is free because admission is charged for each activity participation is requested the children's favorite activity: the Crossbow shooting!

  • On a promontory overlooking the City Castle (or at least what's left) is a great witness of the history of Richard the Lion heart and and d d Aquitaine Eleanor! The guide was very friendly she is passionate and the kids loved! They could dress up in costumes d time and discover the leisure activities of children of yesteryear. We went back: same magic! A must!

  • In season, really good animations of horsemanship and falconry, with the story of Richard Coeur de Lion (in French, with live song!) Guided tours in French & English (all included in ticket price). Made me proud to be a citizen of Greater Normandy!
  • Great and cool day and great spectacles.
  • Great place to spend a few hours for kids and the whole family. The bird show was great. They flew right over our heads. Crossbow shooting was fun and the family can dress up and play medieval games. Young kids can complete a knight obstacle coarse and get knighted.
  • We visited on a whim and were very glad we did. Well presented, not too stuffy. They gave the four of us a guided tour in English. The middle ages arms presentation by Hubert the Chevalier and Rufus the Peasant was funny and informative. Also: great views.
