The plot of the activity “Christmas at the Castle”

The story

Do you believe in Christmas magic? Yes? Well this is great luck because Santa needs you! Just as he should have been in top form to prepare for the distribution of gifts, he got sick instead… Your mission: help get him back on his feet by meeting his elves and animals in his castle – the Château de la Ferté Saint-Aubin, of course! His first elf, Barnabé, will explain everything that you need to accomplish during this mission, but here is what he will, on the whole, ask of you: to gather on your path everything that Santa likes, going through the stables and its miniature animals, his private apartments, the kitchens (where his favorite recipe is getting prepared), the toy attic and the elves’ treasure room; observe, touch, smell, taste, sing and create objects until your final encounter with Santa, whom you will need to comfort with everything you will have gathered!

The investigation takes the form of an interactive tour which will end once you meet Santa in order to comfort him and help him heal. This amazing adventure will take you on a magical journey, through the decorated grounds of the castle. Prepare for a two-hour tour to fulfill your mission. One thing is certain, Christmas’s fate is truly in your hands!

We came to visit the castle during the holiday season. The activities and settings were splendid and the kids (and parents) loved searching for clues to heal Santa.

We visited this place with my children for Christmas, it was magical. A tour organized inside the castle with the aim of finding all the necessary ingredients for the remedy that will heal a sick Santa. Awesome!

Darina S.

Wonderful Christmas activity: a tour that takes the form of a treasure hunt to heal Santa! Fun for young and not so young visitors. The rooms are decorated with taste. We leave with sweets, a picture with (the real) Santa and star-filled eyes!
