Discovering Gizeux without the parents in tow !

At the Château de Gizeux, your children can travel back in time on special tours. Getting dressed up in costume, they can learn how people lived in this château in centuries past, from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance.

Is that the end of the tour? Not at all, it’s now time for a craft class… making your own coat of arms, or bread, or gardening at the foot of the château… every day, the class changes. To finish with a flourish, the whole family can join in a treasure hunt !

Visit Langeais with Anne of Brittany at your side

Heading over to the Château de Langeais, Anne of Brittany ‘herself’ will take your children on a memorable journey into the past. Young lords and ladies, dressed in period costume, follow Anne around the castle, learning about daily life at court… Who knows, she may even tell them her own story and how she became queen of France here, getting married at Langeais Castle!

Don’t miss a walk around the castle grounds. As well as clambering up to the old keep, there’s a children’s play area, plus an outsized tree-hut set in a cedar.
