  • Visit that starts at 20:00 and ending a23h00. A great tour with a friendly guide. We're going from Hut to Hut to observe the birds that will move into position for the night: for example 70 egrettes footbar on poles. Each has his own for the night. The tour is interesting and entertaining. Other visitors came out, the reserve for the Group (15-20 pers.). We saw herons, storks, the curlews, cormorants, two types of ducks, Knights, swans and I forget. A good time for any lover of nature or birds.

  • Very peaceful place where it is good to walk you are in love with birds or not! The trails are very well equipped and many huts of observation are presented with information about the species that can be observed. Predict more than 3 hours to go all around by taking the time to observe. Attention in high summer one side is in full sun and without shadow anywhere! I recommend!

  • We spent two and a half hours following the suggested trail, visiting the observation posts as well as the new, high lookout point. We saw lots of birds and the images above the observation points pro...  more »

  • I would give the nature, birds, and blinds a 5 star. But my interactions with the humans were disappointing. Over the phone they were impatient with my broken French, therefore I missed the guided walk. The following day I requested to place my bike just past the ticket office because I didn't have a lock. The restaurant said "that's your problem not mine" and the ticket office denied my request with corporate inflexibility. I didn't have to speak perfect French to feel disrespected. All should visit this reserve, but do so without special requests.
  • Very nice place, beautiful views of the birds, despite the time that makes that they are not very present. Well informed on the best hours of visits before coming to put all the chances on his side. Hot weather forecast of the anti mosquitos, we have been well eaten...

  • Great visit..... wonderful site... a treat for the eyes and for the "amateur" and "professional" photo! but find out when is the right time to see these birds... It takes between 03 and 04 h visit... On the other hand, we were outraged (e) s to have been ejected as a messy by the Manager of the bar which is located at the entrance of the reserve, all that because we were "too many".. It is true that 19 people... It's insurmountable... While there were many empty tables inside! But this gentleman is the "boss", "it's what he wants," and "it serves that he wants"! A true slob... According the direction in which I complained was told that the Manager has every right to refuse a group... or other... I've never seen that! So I'd advise! And it is the reason that I put that 4 stars!

  • Great place for nature lovers and birdwatchers. 6 km path with 20 huts and several vantage points. Environment equipped and very clean and tidy. Birdwatchers should count a whole day to visit. Cost of entry 9 euros, spent a great time.
