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.

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.
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.
I am not a driver
I can arrange a separate car and professional driver on request.
Avoid any disappointments by checking with me before booking as i can always have a last minute tour with local clients.
