    Great place, we loved, the only complaint is that you have to walk 1 km from the different car parks we made the home of the prairie or everything is free access, animals, beautiful gardens and vegetable with huge gourds we had the chance to took advantage of the 'closed in madness' day this Sunday, September 24 with animations and demonstrations and to have profited to buy goat cheese corner picnic with snack bar and toilets. Many footpaths for lovers, a little piece of paradise

    Very nice place in nature with garden and animals. Seems to find the farm of my childhood. Sometimes there are activities, to watch the program.

    Place essential and unique to le Mans, just 10 min from the centre. Park in the orchard and be guided by signs to walk (allow 2 hours ride to enjoy because it is very large, you won't even lose the round in 2 hours, but can enjoy a ride in part, without getting lost thanks very well done markup). Finally, go to the area of the epau (near car park Orchard) to drink a coffee or even eating, smiling and quality products.
