Pedagogy / Schools

Educational projects in collaboration with national education.

The Château de La Roche Courbon is the ideal site for discussing with children the themes of Prehistory, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and the notion of heritage..

The fauna and flora are also very rich due to the natural diversity of the places: forest, marshes, river and garden.

Open all year round, our guides welcome students from kindergarten to middle school for the visit of your choice, in line with the school program.

We offer half-day or full-day activities.

Parking for coaches and picnic area (possibility of shelter in case of bad weather)

Thanks to the richness of the area, we can develop a tailor-made visit or activity according to your needs.
