  • Great afternoon in this beautiful place dedicated to the monkeys! Proximity to many animals like children. Souvenirs at the shop prices are very affordable. A nice place to visit.

  • Really a great day for the whole family. Feedings throughout the day can very well see the monkeys and to listen to the explanations of the trainers and ask them questions. The animals appear to be in good conditions, the Park is well designed. Many picnic tables shaded and playgrounds.

  • We visit every year and love it. The park is beautifully designed and the monkeys have ample room to wonder. Perfect for both families and couples. We would recommend this to anyone!!
  • Couldn't rate this place highly enough. Such amazing surrounds for vast array of monkey and other wildlife. Could spend a whole day here. A little out of the way, so it takes some time to reach, but worth the trip.
  • This park is a real treat and hidden in the middle of the French countryside. It's easily a place to spend all day and you can time your visit to certain areas by the feeding times on the map. Although, if you bring a picnic, leave it in the car and fetch it when you want it rather than carrying it around the park all day. Some of the best things are the squirrel monkeys (samurai).who play in the trees and come right up to you. Keepers try to ask you to keep your distance but one tried to take the sunglasses off my head as we walked through the trees. The lemurs are super cute, especially when they're sunbathing. From the larger animals, the bonobos, gorillas and chimps are fascinating and have plenty of outdoor space to play in natural habitats. There are picnic spots, adventure play areas, cafes and a petting farm. Some of the downsides - there's no feeding time talks given in English. Only French families receive family discounts, and when I went last week, they were trying to charge the 12 year old as an adult even though it quite clearly says 5 to 12 year olds are children. Signage refers to which animals but not the numbers that are on the map, so sometimes you can end up walking around in circles.
  • I'm Kim Rix, a family portrait photographer in London. I recently took my husband to La Vallee des Singes, to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I chose La Vallee des Singe because he's nuts about chimps, and watches Monkey World on tv. Of course, being a portrait photographer, I enjoyed taking portraits of the animals. Much as we loved it, I will point out that we didn't have a car, and relied on public transport and taxis. There is a shuttle bus which operated once or twice a day, which might be more frequent outside of the school holidays. It's was difficult to get around and it worked out to be more expensive than hiring a car for a few days.
  • Really nice day out. Well organised, well kept. Fun and Informative.
