  • Really nice park where you can observe lots of animals, mostly birds like flamingos, for only 7.50 euros per person and 5 euros for children! You can also rent some binoculars for 5 euros which I recommend because you will be able to observe a lot more animals like the beavers and the nutrias who are a bit shy. By visiting this park you will walk quite a lot: there are two parts one of 3 km and the other about 4.5 km but it's a really nice walk in between all the animals! Unfortunately the information boards that explain the different animals are only in french.
  • So well done. Far more than just flamingos and oversized rodents - the walking routes and viewpoints are quite magical on a sunny afternoon. You can leave when you want, so do stay for the sunset if you wish, but make sure you have a good pair of binoculars.
