Have you ever imagined life in a castle ? Come on my tour to learn about the medieval castle - its construction, its features, its defenses. This is a kid-friendly tour that will please the whole family! We will visit a real castle located 20 mins from Paris, built from 1360 to 1410.
We will take the drawbridge over the moat & enter through the main tower. We will visit the keep & its residential area. We'll make the rounds on the wooden terrace which commands views for miles around. We will climb a dizzying spiral staircase to the top of the castle & see the battlements with its bell tower, just like the soldiers who once guarded the castle. Then we descend into the dungeons & servant's quarters. I will provide the historical context to help you & your kids learn about life in the Middle Ages!

Take your little ones to the largest park in central Paris - ideal for smaller children under 10. This 57-acre park has all your kids need for a fun morning out of doors!
Toddlers can play in the sandbox & the older kids can enjoy themselves in the playground...play on the swings, slip down the slide, get dirty in the sand. Then take a ride on the traditional wooden horses of the merry-go-round or choose a real pony for a gentle ride.
Rent a radio-guided sailboat & pilot the ship on the waters of the Basin...facing a baroque Renaissance palace (built 1612). Or see a marionette show & enjoy a traditional Fairy Tale with puppets. After all that effort, everyone can relax in the Kiddie Picnic Area & slurp some ice cream or sip a cool drink !

We will spend half a day having fun with your kids ! Just a short metro ride from the city we will visit & castle, a zoo & an aviary.
We start off with a real medieval castle (built 1360), which we will visit from the top of the battlements down to the dungeons. I explain how castles were constructed, defended & how the owners lived. We will see the king's bedchamber, his private study, his chapel & his treasury. We will learn about life in the Middle Ages. See above for additional description.
Next stop - an aviary & zoo. See pink flamingos, exotic parrots, giraffes, wolves, lions & other fun animals. Visit creepy lizards, snakes & giant spiders. Smile at the seals, playful otters & the waddling penguins. Visit the aviary to see birds up close. A fun time for everyone!
