    Yes, we were there a couple of weeks back. Couldn't help but wonder WHY?

    If you need your spirits lifting after that I can thoroughly recommend Puy Du Fou. It's not far from Cholet. I am raving about it to everyone at the moment. You should allow more than one day to see it all.

    Bon Route

    Hi Wyn, we are looking to pay a visit to Puy du Fou in September, is it advisable to book in advance or just pay on arrival.

    Brisey.

    Cheers for that but going over to the east and follow the river/canals Saone and the Marne à la Saône before heading for the ferry :cry:

    It is easy enough to pay on entry, as we did, opting for a 2 day pass. That's not the most cost effective, however. Ideally if you can book 'in advance' you can take advantage of the discounts. In addition to the main parc events is a separate show - CINESCENIE - which really should not be missed so if you choose the option for tickets to that as well, you will get the best deal. (Cinescenie is only on Fri & Sat nights and is separate from the night concert on the lake so be sure to catch both on one ev ening or another)
    Booking in advance can be done up to the previous evening so some careful planning is worthwhile.
    The place to look for booking info is at the top of my reply (my pad insists on putting it there rather than where I want it but hey....)

    If I can help with any further details please ask.

    Wyn

    Feel free, I'm just blown away by what they have achieved. It's actually difficult to explain Puy Du Fou without giving away some of the surprises. I cannot imagine being better entertained anywhere. I seem to recall that Cinescenie has been described as the greatest show in the entire world - and that was by the Americans!
