Only a short drive from Dinan, St. Malo and Dinard on the Rance Valley.

At first glance this place seemed a little remote and amaturistic but once inside the mazes were excellent, there were four in all. Each maze had a set of 10 questions (in English and French). The answer to each question gave you a letter for an anagram. These questions added interest at the same time as guiding you through the maze. We split into teams but it would be just as much fun to do as a family group. When you finally reach the centre of the maze there is seating and snacks for the exhausted adults and great outdoor games for the younger ones which kept them entertained for at least another 30 minutes whilst we caught our breath and got ready for the next maze.

The kids had a lovely time and were kept busy for the whole afternoon. It was very good value for money. There were also pic-nic tables near to the car park and we were allowed to go out, have our lunch and then return leaving all the pic-nic stuff in the cars.
