An overview

of the Trip...

Guided or unguided visits (with audioguide or booklet) are at the same price. You will then be offered options (farm visit, children’s workshops, meals, etc.) according to the schedules. For the audio guide, bring your headphones. If you don’t have one, headphones are available for just € 2.

Dear visitors,

Following the latest government announcements aimed at curbing the spread of the Covid, a health pass will be requested, as of July 21, from anyone 18 years of age and over, before entering the site.

You will be asked to justify a complete vaccination course or a negative test (PCR or antigen) of less than 48 hours or a positive test attesting to the recovery from Covid 19 dating at least 11 days and less 6 months. An identity document will also be requested, in order to verify the agreement with the health pass.

Wearing a mask is also compulsory from the age of 11.

Due to the large volume of calls, the wait times to reach us by phone may lengthen. We thank you for your patience and understanding.

We look forward to welcoming you and wish you a wonderful holiday in Périgord!
