Educational offer

A real fortified castle to visit to complete your education in history and art history, this is what the Château de Talmont wishes to offer you today.

 

Each year, around 4,000 pupils, teachers and guides come to immerse themselves in the Middle Ages during a half-day or a day at the Château de Talmont thanks to a program of activities designed specifically for them.

 

Each of our educational activities respects the rhythm and level of your students, with the aim of transmitting to them medieval knowledge and know-how, but also a taste for heritage and its preservation.

Our mediators are at your disposal as soon as you make your reservation on 02 51 90 27 34, to choose with you the activities best suited to the level of the students, the school program and your class project.

Les Classes Patrimoine is a service of the Vendée Grand Littoral Community of Communes. Its mission is to coordinate mediation for schoolchildren in its territory.

Les Classes Patrimoine support teachers, or organizers of educational trips, in the construction of their school stay in the territory of Vendée Grand Littoral.
