  • Excellent moment familial
  • I love this place for its garden and its beautiful plants, for its giant chessboard, his Castle, his days tasting summer. The zoo part is visiting the animals are to improved, a modernization of the enclosure would really not luxury, both for the beasts for visitors. I don't like too the zoo part, but much the Park part!

  • I love. We have an annual card that allows to go as soon as the weather. Except the last time or we got in front of the closed door because they couldn't open this year... Very disappointed and a little angry because this was not indicated to the out of the high road. That would avoid a few km and more. Besides our annual card was still valid for this early in the season. But I think that they have not wanted to and that stuff doesn't prevent not back of CA re - opens! Very friendly staff. Walk off together, very nice playground.

  • It changes the simple zoo! Animal Park + visit to the Castle + atypical play area. View closely wolves, bears, lions and monkeys. Big and small (2, 5 years and 5 years) are fun. Playground surprising (game failure) and the giant goose, outdoor labyrinth,... Ball pool game. Lovely time guaranteed!

  • For all audiences. Large and small. Visit to the Castle, animal park, game of discovery of flowers and vegetables from the garden, and the country liquor tasting. Playground and rest in the shade.
