Puy du Fou is one of the best theme parks in the world, not just France! Located in the heart of the Vendee region in Western France and easily accessible from many of the gites listed on www.loirelife.com in the Loire Valley.

I always have trouble explaining to our Loire Valley guests just how good Puy du Fou is.  It’s not a theme park for thrilling rides and roller coasters, but comparing it to Euro Disney or Universal Studios doesn’t do it justice either.

Puy du Fou

You spend your day (or days, as there is so much to see) being entertained by an ever growing number of theatrical outdoor shows.  Huge in their scale and awesome in their delivery there is something for everyone.  Children from the age of five upwards to grandparents will have a day to remember for a long, long time.  In between the shows there are full scale themed villages to wander around – from a medieval village to a 19th century town centre.

Planning which shows you do in which order is a must, just so you can try and fit it all in.  Be entertained at the Roman coliseum, watch the Viking longboats attacking the coast, the knights as they lay siege to the castle or the birds of prey drawing gasps from the crowd as they dance to music.

There are now on-site hotels that enable you to stay the night and take in the amazing light show that takes place in the evening, an event with thousands of participants that is unforgettable.

Even if your gite is not in the Vendee, it’s worth making a longer journey to see Puy du Fou – your children will thank you for the rest of the summer!
