This place is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! You should plan to spend your day there if you want to see everything. There is a great treasure hunt for kids in French but all the descriptions inside are in French, English, and Spanish. There are many people dressed up to show you the art of living from the old days.
If you are on the road, this is a great little stop and time jump Back to 19 century rural France. Many old houses reconstructed on site. If you have kids, they will love it. There is an old auberge a bakery and a which house and farm animals as well!
