  • Entertaining
  • Superb.
  • A pleasant day spent in family in this magical and surprising place. Picnic in the Park and stroll in rooms borrowed mystery... This is a place worth visiting! And... the kids loved (especially the fabulous animals and the anamorphoses)!

Thanks again to all the team and its warm.
