A concept exported abroad
Puy du Fou is a private, independent group with no shareholders, and receives no government subsidies. Its economic autonomy means it enjoys great strategic and creative freedom. All profits are invested back into the ongoing development of Puy du Fou's artistic project.
Today, Puy du Fou employs a renowned team of experts in all areas. All our talents, representing over 200 different professions, work together to develop and create each new show, hotel and restaurant.

Puy du Fou is thus making constant progress and asserting its artistic audacity through a variety of investments.
