Plan a visit to the Grand Parc (without prior reservation) or the night show La Cinéscénie (reservation required or strongly recommended!)

We are pleased to announce the 2016 novelty of the Puy du Fou, the Last Panache, a show centered around Charette and his grandiose epic

During the day the Grand Parc with the great breathtaking shows, with the Sign of Triumph, the Vickings, the Ghost Birds Ball, the Secret of the Lance and the Richelieu Musketeer. It takes at least one day to see all the shows.

And then there are the night shows, especially the Cinescénie, which attracts a large number of Vendeans of all ages, known as puyfolais and literally passionate!

And then again during the day, what the Puy du Fou calls the other shows but whose brilliance and magnificence have nothing to envy to the main shows. The Lovers of Verdun (which was created in 2015), the Renaissance of the Castle (which was created in 2014), the Knights of the Round Table etc …

The Puy du Fou is also a peaceful place to visit, called Between the Shows, a time machine, a few steps are enough to cross the ages, even the centuries with the 1900’s Village, the Fort of the Year 1000, the Medieval City or the 18th Century Village.

Les Petites Maisons dans la Prairie campsite is the possibility to stay less than 20 minutes from the sea, with a heated indoor swimming pool, cheap rates for families, and the Puy du Fou at about 1h20. Take advantage of these opportunities now and call us right away!
