It is a wonderful place to learn a little bit Acadian culture. People are super friendly. wish I knew French so I can enjoy more. But every ppl in the house speak English. The view is pretty, village is colorful.

The show was really entertaining (2 people), a great kitchen party! The little village was also very interesting, although partially closed. The lunch was not so good, although I guess it was meant to be authentic. Good shop.
