  • That's a pretty place discovered by good summer day out during the school year. A vast area where to relax. Everything is free: the vegetable garden, stables, animals to observe... With or without children this place is always a pleasure to visit. There is room to walk, lunch, ride a bike. Beyond wildlife to discover young, there is also a great Park to hives with a transparent hive. We will be back soon!
