The Art de Vivre in the Middle Ages

The tour of the Grand Logis is an opportunity to learn how the nobility lived, what they ate and drank, how they dressed, what the buildings were like, and much more. The tour features several kid-friendly activities: each family forms a team and each participant gets a role. One can play a tapestry-maker, another the butler, another the soap-maker, and so on, with each assigned a fun task.
