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

    Nice walk to do with the family. The owner is a nature enthusiast who saves and takes care of most rabbits. It is an educational visit for young and old. Very nice home. We will come back!

    Hardly bearable. Rabbits crammed into tiny enclosures overflowing with excrement, dirty water. Most of the shelters are in damp corners, others are lucky enough to have sunshine. A bit of soiled hay as bedding. The visit was very trying for us, animal lovers. We will never go back there again.

    Les lapins sont dans des cages ridicules comparés à l'espace qu'ils pourraient avoir. La nourriture est mauvaise pas de foin, pas de verdures rien. Les cages sont elles réellement nettoyées ? Aucun...
