Puy Du Fou









Another great day out at probably the best Historical theatre park in the world!
Every year the park increases the number of shows and the quality increases, even if you have seen the shows before you will all ways be surprised by the things you missed the first time!
Its about a 1.5 hr drive from our Gites a long day but a very memorable and exciting day out for all the family.
