Lovely day out for all the family with well cared for animals and plenty of space.
The local fabulous zoo in Doue la Fontaine approximately 5mins drive from us, is well worth a visit. The Zoo was originally created out of old stone quarries and underground caves and is now home to a variety of exotic animals including big cats, penguins, reptiles and vultures. It’s conservationist…
a wonderfull zoo built in an old quarry, ideal for hot days as you can walk in the shade and for rainy days as you can walk in the sun. A peacefull and fun place, a great day out.
“Sits proudly on a raised rocky area above the Loire and the town of Saumur. An imposing sight at any time, looks even more splendid when lit up at night.”
“The burial place of Richard the Lionheart and his mother, Eleanor of Aquitaine. Stunning Abbey, beautiful gardens. A calm and serene atmosphere. The hotel on the corner outside has the best Earl Grey tea I have ever tasted!”
“The troglodyte village at Rochemenier is a must see and inexpensive experiance. The caves were occupied until the 1970's”
