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

    It is not the forest of the rabbits but the prison of the rabbits. The place is beautiful and it could have been exploited very well to make it a magical place for rabbits and visitors. unfortunately, the rabbits are crammed into dirty, dark and above all very small cages. Rather than wasting their time making resin statues, the owners would do better to devote themselves to the well-being of their little ones and completely rethink their place of life. It's a shame, because I think the owners love their animals.

    The idea is good, but a pity that the enclosures are not larger especially given the number of rabbits inside and the free space around. Questions can arise when it comes to their real well-being and the evolution of their health. Why not expand the enclosures? Too bad it is not possible to get inside either, why not create an enclosure / park to mingle with the less fearful rabbits? In short, a visit that I had been waiting for a very long time but ultimately a little mixed for a rabbit enthusiast like me.
