An extraordinary challenge: building a fortress in XXIth


Guedelon is a public work site where workers are building a Fortress with the same technicals as the ones used in the middle age.
Public, mean this is a safe place.
You see workers, mean you can talk with them.
Medieval technics mean noble materials (wood, stone, iron, clay and lime) and you will understand by looking and discussing.

The all fortress and estate mean : the only place like this in the world, a day you will never forget and for good reasons !

It is totally suitable for families.

Itinerary

Time departure : 07:00 am
journey to Guédelon including a coffee and toilet stop on the way.
Arrival around 10:00 am
Guided tour up to lunch time.
Guédelon's restaurants or pic nic (not includes)
then, I would recommand you to take free time to discover the place according to you tastes (workers, decoration, water mill, animals, etc. ) otherwise I can stay with you all along the day if you wish it (no extra for that, it is include).
Possibility to do shopping at the medieval boutique where you will find real handmade products at normal price.

The journey is very comfortable

Transportation

What’s Included

My time before the tour to exchange with you and organize it.
My time as a guide all along the day.
Transportation with a professional, safe and friendly driver and his new Mercedes Viano Van (including insurance of all passengers)
Tickets entrance (no line).
Water/Sweets/Organic coffee/Organic Tea

Estimated Local Cash Needed

50 euros - You will maybe enter into the gift shop which is very interesting for its real local handicraft sold in it.

What’s Extra

The three options for lunch are :

-lunch at the Guédelon's restaurant, facing the Castle (20/25 euros per person)

-pic nic in Guédelon, in a covered place facing the castle
It could be a great way to discover real french products (bread, cheese and wine for example)
This should be arranged in advance to allow me to buy products.

-in a restaurant outside Guédelon, the area is very nice, like St Fargeau village and castle for example, but it will give less time for Guédelon. In that case we could do half day in Guédelon, and half-day in st Fargeau. It is just a choice to do !

Those options are not included in the total price.

Restrictions

I am a full licencied guide, i can guide in national museums, monuments and outside

I am not a professional driver
I can arrange a separate transportation with insurance, vehicle (usually a new Mercedes Viano van) and a kind and calm professional driver.
