Grand Parc,  Puy-du-Fou

Sud Vendee.. Haut Bocage.. Coastal Region.. Marais Poitevin.. Marais Breton.. Bas Bocage.. Plaine.. Marais Olonne..
The Largest Historic and educational theme park in the World, this is the Vendée’s number 1 attraction along with the Cinescenie night time show which is held on summer weekends.
The 110 acre natural woodland site with attractive gardens and lakes has over 1000 animals, 17 restaurants there are 4 villages from different times in history which have been meticulously reconstructed and where many of the day to day trades are re-enacted to as near authentic accuracy as is possible.
There are 5 major Spectaculars that take place throughout the day, most are repeated but this depends on the time of year that you visit.
There are also dozens of smaller activities happening everywhere you turn all over the park, and wherever you go there is something different going on.
It is without doubt the finest day out in the Vendée and something the equal of which you will not find anywhere else in the world.

The Major Shows.

Le Bal des Oiseaux Fantomes. This must be the finest display of Falconry in the world with up to 150 birds of prey in the air for the finale. Set in the amphitheatre of Vieux Château the show introduces the many birds of prey to the audience, the falconers are positioned all around the stage and as the birds fly from falconer to falconer they raise the hair on your head and give you a close up view of these impressive creatures.

Mousquetaires de Richelieu a show based loosely on the 3 Musketeers and held inside an enormous auditorium with the world’s largest curtain (70m), this show, which involves horses dancing on a lake, ladies dancing through the fountains and of course our 3 Musketeers plus much more. Tip:- Even though this is held in a gigantic theatre, seats are limited so get there 15 minutes before the start time.

The Vikings. This is pure theatre. It portrays a small village in medieval times where a marriage ceremony is taking place when it is invaded by the Vikings. It is full of great visual effects to a standard only ever seen here at the Puy du Fou.  See the Video

Gladiateurs.  The large Gallo Roman coliseum is the setting for this great spectacular which includes gladiators, "Ben Hur" style chariot racing, the feeding of a few Christians to the lions and a few other pieces of entertainment. It’s a great show in a spectacular setting.
