  • It's really just a zoo there are nice places like the Aviary or one is in contact with the animals, otherwise its still one basic with animals behind glass there are giraffes but I found their tiny enclosure was quick round unfortunately

  • very nice Zoo. We spent a very nice day. We could have a picnic in the zoo. Many animals to see in a very friendly landscape. Children and adults spend a very good time. Unforgettable day!

  • Visit family with 2 children aged 3 and 5, many species are visible and the course includes a lot of interesting and useful information both for young people than for older people. The circuit is much turned around the discovery of the biodiversity and the protection of the environment, what seems essential in learning about life. Many play areas and play structures are present, to not "lost" children. Special mention to the aviary where, after to be fitted with a pot of nectar at the entrance (€1), parrots come to eat by landing on your hand. The little ones are still not recovered!

  • Small zoo for small kids
  • Small zoo a little expensive, very shady and pleasant even if it's hot. There is an area to eat. The enclosures of animals are small. Missing the personnel to monitor visitors not always respectful of the rules of the zoo. There is a large aviary where you can feed the birds (purchase of nectar at the 1 euro cash). Enclosures available goats with kids. It's too bad to do exit the store. Visit out of season or before the massive arrival of holidaymakers.

  • We used to visit zoos... is undoubtedly the less well maintained of all the ones we have seen so far. Weeds, dirty water, really nauseating smells that make you want to finish the visit as fast... Entry price is too high. Some animals are so worth the enclosure are small!

  • Visited 17/08/2016 - Park-very disappointing. For an ecological park? This is unacceptable! Very dirty and badly maintained Zoo you don't see animals so herbs are high, bad smells, polluted waters... More animals are treated during opening hours and so no child safety (tractors, trucks déboulent everywhere). and of course it is really overpriced.
