Create an itinerary including Puy du Fou
The historical theme park Puy du Fou is immensely popular for good reason--it brings periods of history to life through performances of epic proportions. By day, you can watch as gladiators fight for their lives, musketeers engage in swashbuckling sword fighting, and Vikings rise out of the lake on their ship to ransack a village right before your eyes. At night, the main show comes alive behind the ruined castle, depicting 700 years of history. The Cinéscénie dazzles you with its award-winning pyrotechnics and exquisite choreography. More than 1,000 actors, including children and live animals, perform this massive show on an outdoor stage that many boast is the largest in the world. Headphones provide English translations of this and many of the main attractions. Shows sometimes sell out weeks or even months ahead, so book your tickets to the park and the performances well in advance. Put Puy du Fou into our Les Epesses trip planning tool to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Les Epesses.

  • Terrible 'acting' Everything voice over, zero enthusiasm they looked so fed up. Nothing impressive on set.. Maybe in the 90's but not today. Music so loud to add impact actually dangerously loud...

  • Definitely the best park in the world. You can barely do it in 1 day when it's not too crowded. We've been there 5 years ago. This time we spent 2 days 1 night, it was awesome, the second day we've done again what we loved the most. And we'll come again :)
  • Never visited anything like this!! Impressive beyond words. Everything was well organised. Very helpful staff. The technology, costumes, sound effects, innovative presentations and actors have life to historical events as if they were actually happening. Must visit!
