Fabulous place.well worth a visit. We visited in a family of 9 from 6 months old to 50 and everyone enjoyed it. Very reasonable. The labyrinthe itself is brilliant and the interaction with the characters is brilliant.

Visited here to mark my daughters 4th birthday while we were on holiday. We paid for the cheapest ticket without the large maze as thought she would find the actors scary. Also had my 5yo son with us. What a little gem of a place, they absolutely loved it and we spent 5hrs here. The outdoor games, trampolines and small mazes were brilliant and the setting is beautiful. Lunch was reasonable and tasty followed by an ice cream. A few animals to see, had no issue with rams or electric fencing as mentioned on other reviews. A day out for 23€ was a bargain I thought, highly recommend a visit.

Absolutely love it here, second year visiting with kids 4&7 years old. We do the farm/ games area and two mini mazes, haven’t done the big maze yet as don’t think they’ll cope (and our French is poor).

However...Please note... live electric fences around the children’s farm! At 7 year old height/ reach. And yes, he got a shock! Aimed at shocking a cow, therefore significant current for a 7 year old child and enough to be felt as though (in his words) being slapped on the back and chest when touching the fence with two fingers! Absolutely no warning signs anywhere. Quite terrifying when this is specifically aimed at children and school groups. Mentioned at reception with little interest shown, although said they would pass it on and no concern at all for the child’s welfare! Suggest if required then must be switched off during visiting hours! Would have thought this was basic safety.

Also; Do not buy pop corn (unless solely for chickens). The thing to be aware of is the butting ram’s in the walk in enclosure. They chased my husband last year causing a nasty bruise and also caught our then 6 year old before lifted to safety. They go crazy for the popcorn feed sold on the way in or even the sound or sight of the paper bag. We assumed this was an unlucky one off last year then saw them charging a young family carrying pop corn this year and suspect it’s a daily occurrence.

The only other gripe is that the horses and many other cages including rabbits in particular are not mucked out..at all by the looks of it, piles of manure that looks weeks old. This really lets the otherwise immaculate site down as well as the animals.

All that aside, (although important points that I really hope they address), this really is a wonderfully imaginative place for young children to really run free and play the old fashioned way. Old tractors to sit on, pedal tractors to drive around a course, trampolines, tunnels area is great, a ‘feel under foot ‘ area where you walk a path over different materials, water cushions to try and walk on, giant chess, giant connect four plus other wooden games. Also a mini maze and a wooden maze, perfect size for our two. Also a herb garden to smell and a dozen other things to play with.

Picnic recommended, lovely to sit out and there are several areas dotted around for this. Crepe or ice cream also recommended. The cafe is nicely laid out to look over the site.

This really is a great place, beautifully thought out. I really hope they address the three issues, otherwise would have definitely marked outstanding.

Wow. Never been anywhere quite like this place. It a maze with a quest. You could spend the whole day here without a problem. I took my 3 and 5 year old and to be fair the maze part was a little big for them to complete. You go round finding clues and record them. When you get all of them from one section you go back to the central area and the very nice people of the maze help you with the story and direct you in the next quest. The theme this year was Aladdin. Everyone was in full costume and the whole area was very well staged as a seen from the film/book. It took us ages to complete four out of six sections and the kids were knackered so we left. Leave a good 2-3 hours to complete this. If you have little ones take a carrier or pushchair etc. We went on a fairly damp day and it was comfortable. I think it would have been a different story on a hot day. We took drinks and snacks to help us along(very important). There is a farm you can look round to. This had a dinning barn and numerous games all undercover. The toilets were great, very new and designed around kids. There is also a playground area with a few different activities on offer plus lots of outdoor covered areas for you to have your picnic. There is also a little cafe area for refreshments. Overall a great day out. Just be aware smaller kids may not be able to complete the maze purely because of its size. A totally different experience.

Really enjoyed this attraction.

To start there was a large field with loads of small puzzles, trampolines and other mini activities.

Then there were a couple of mini mazes to warm you up for the main labyrinth!

It's worth noting that the main labyrinth is only open at certain times as live actors are inside the maze, we had to wait an hour before we could start but no problem as there were several activities to keep us occupied.

It was a very hot day so glad we bought a few bottles of water with us. Inside you have the choice of entering 4 different areas, each bolding different puzzles. We only did a couple as we were not and tired (It is a lot of walking!).

The actors were great and quite happily translated into English, most visitors seemed to be French on the day we went.
