Below is a selection of the best adventures families can have together.
Chateau des Aventuriers
If your family want the chance to explore a stunning Renaissance castle, as well as enact a pirate adventure and even meet dinosaurs, Chateau des Aventuriers is for you. You can take a tour of the castle to get yourselves in the adventurer spirit, before setting off on one of the four courses to be found in the 86-hectare grounds.
These include a pirate adventure where you'll have puzzles to solve, with the ultimate goal of finding a magic medal! Kids wanting to burn off some energy, meanwhile, can do so at the Dinosaurs and Prehistory playground, where they'll find lurking dinosaurs - complete with sound effects!
Le Grand Defi - Parcours Aventure
