  • Excellent stay in the reserve from the mountains of France. Perfect warm place where you are welcomed and frame with animals all around the field. You can maybe have the chance to see some small wild boar from your balcony. The carriage ride was perfect, with a guide completely passionate about his craft and the birds. We must think ahead with sweaters and good coats winter and spring because it's cold.

  • We did stay "booth" in September, and everything was great. The reception is perfect, the grandiose setting, fascinating animals! A real travel in Mongolia, or prehistory, to choice. In any case, really exotic. Thank you! Let me a little suggestion: offer binoculars to visitors, including for carriages. In all cases, we will be back!

  • We have chosen the option 1 hour carriage ride with our children 3 and 4 years, who wanted to see Buffalo. Small clarification: are Buffalo in Europe that are present in the reserve. The guide of the carriage was very friendly and seemed passionate about his trade. There is a playground for children in the catchment area of carriages and another play area a little higher or my children enjoyed themselves before and after our carriage ride. Nice shop with atypical memories in the middle of the traditional door key or magnets. Secluded and "mountain" to access road.
