Festival Country Mirande from 12 to 15 July 2012
At one and a half hours driving from Les Quatre Toits, near Agen, between Bordeaux and Toulouse, is an outstanding destination for day trips to the southwestern part of France. The reasons are simple: 30 hectares of natural splendor around a magnificent 18th century castle, mind-boggling attractions, exciting shows… in short, all the ingredients for an unforgettable day! Defy the breathtaking front and backward loops of the Boomerang, take flight in the Fandango (a beautiful, hanging carousel) or hop on the Drakkar for hilarious slipping and sliding. Don’t forget to check out the show with the sea lions! These animals make such weird faces, they will soon win over those who enjoy a good laugh. And then there is big news! This year, between mid-June and mid-August there will be a circus, with shows for everyone to enjoy.
