The magician of the castle, the guardian of the mill, the clock master, the flower vendor and the stone mason will all guide you. The solved riddles will give you access to the treasure… the chocolate treasure. Departure Place Vieille at 1030, free participation. Organised by Grimaud Animations.

It really feels like the season is starting to kick off with more and more big events coming soon.

Last week of school and the French kids break up for Easter holidays! In France, schools have 2-week holidays 4 times during the school year (October, Xmas, February and Easter) and then 10 weeks in the summer!! Plenty of time off, so it’s always good to have fun events going on to entertain the kids.

Thanks for reading and tune back in next week for the school holiday activities. Until next time, Yasmin M.
