  • The village of turtles, unique in France, allows to discover the various breeds of turtles, their way of life and how to feed them and care for them. Indeed, most of its animals were recovered on the occasion of various traffic and donations. The walk there is interesting. Recommended for families.

  • This park is more about conservation than it is a park for the family and children: the focus really is on the animals. There is an effort to educate the public with small texts, but this could be improved and updated. Accessibility for disabled people is poor as the focus is not on the visitors but on the animals: the visitors are just a means to get some funding for their conservation work.

  • Very playful, family. Volunteers and professionals working there are very friendly. Don't hesitate to sponsor a turtle or several CAs can help the association which takes care of all that.
