What else for kids to see/do near Guedelon?

Jump to last reply

In June, my daughter and I will be taking her three children (boys 12 and 10, daughter 5) to France and I'm pushing to include a visit to Guedelon, where they're building a castle using medieval techniques. We'll be in France for more than a month, starting with 10 days in the Loire Valley, and will rent a car for this first stretch.

Since I've read the recent advice on this forum about traveling with young children, let me reassure you all that we're balancing kids' needs with ours and trying to be extremely realistic (and flexible) in our plans! This has been her dream, ever since she spent a year as an exchange student there: to spend part of a summer in France with her children, and I'm along to help until the reinforcements (husbands) arrive!

I've been to Guedelon and that area 7 years ago, but I wasn't looking for things to do with children that time. I'm thinking maybe we should make 2 days out of the trip, since we'll be coming from near Amboise. Day 1 we drive over in the morning, spend most of the day at G, and then stay overnight possibly at a hotel or B&B with a pool (or hot tub for me!). Day 2 we do/see something in that area or on the way back, to break up the 2.5 hour drive.

I have spent literally days online and found Chateau Saint Brisson sur Loire that has a gauntlet the boys would love. Anyone been there?

Any suggestions for great places to stay? Suggestions for someplace to stop on the way back to break up the trip? Thanks in advance for any help.
