A beautiful setting in the ruins of a castle with a magnificent collection of birds, from birds-of-prey to brightly coloured parrots. We enjoyed the show and were able to interact with the birds. Show times are 3:30 & 5pm everyday during the summer. Well worth a visit if you're in the area.

The show was nice. Some birds are really beautiful and majestic... The site is beautiful, seeing the ruins of the castle and the views of the valley are absolutely breath taking. However, I think the price was a bit too much for what it actually is... I have been once but will not visit again...

Had a good time here. The show was a good standard but its all in French which wasn't a problem as you can still enjoy yourself. Towards the end of the show you get to hold and feed some of the birds. All the birds seemed happy which is always important for me. After the show is finished you get... More

The show is amazing and as the setting is in and on the grounds of an ancient castle it is very impressive. The handlers were great. Not being a French speaker (to my shame) I could not understand but I got the picture! However we were there on a very hot day by the time we had followed the queue... More

Nice to see all these birds flying, this show is really well put together and I do not understand the negative comments from others Ta contributors : yes birds are enchained when they are not flying but they seem well treated. And they ways come back after they fly, which seems to say they are happy . The show is... More
