    Great and passionate people managing the facility. It is low key but worth the visit especially with young kids.

    We were disappointed. Poorly maintained place, the space is huge but the cages are very small, the person in the souvenir shop is very unfriendly (so we quickly left and didn't buy anything). The owner, on the other hand, is very friendly and passionate.

    Le Monsieur est très gentil sans aucun doute mais la condition animal est à notre avis peu être à revoir. Nous nous attendions à voir des lapins en semi liberté et on se retrouve sur un parcours...
