Cultural awakening and fun activities in the "Village du Livre".


The "Village du Livre" is an atypical place. It's a real bookshop of the imagination that renewed itself, offering an unusual visit to this former flour mill which became an oil mill in the 19th century. In addition you will find canoe trips, fun activities to awaken the interest of the youngest and exhibitions which will delight the olders and bring them back to the memories of their childhood.

Unique in France, this cabinet of curiosity located in an architectural complex of 5000m² - steeped in 5 centuries of history - offers you an astonishing journey through time, art and culture. The themes of the different places are revealed to the visitor by the objects associated with the books. So take the time to visit the premises, leaf through a book and purchase all these treasures, objects and works.

This old mill located in the heart of our Aquitaine heritage allows a playful discovery of the place by offering you throughout the year games and animations such as the Escape Game, the Cluedo and participation in our various events (literary meetings, Halloween, Easter egg hunt, workshops...) allowing a total immersion in the place, a playful learning and the sharing of an activity with the family.

Here from 3 to 99 years old, alone, with family or friends, we visit, learn, have fun and marvel.
