“Definitely worth a look”

Lying mid way between St Malo and Rennes is this very attractive zoo. It costs us 73 Euros for a family of four. The price includes the gardens, the bird of prey show (well worth a look) and the horse and hounds show (if you like wathing a couple of horses running round in circles with a pack of dogs then fine but otherwise give it a miss).
The enclosures are in the main really nicely laid out giving a very open aspect from one to another. You can be in the walk through lemur enclosure (nicely done) and see and hear a roaring lion in the background – quite surreal really, but it adds to the feeling of openness. Most of the enclosures were very generous while a couple (the gibbons and the giraffes) seem to have been short changed a little. The cafe is OK providing the usual drinks and a limited range of food (crepes and chips were of decent quality) but it would be better to take in a picnic. Overall a good experience and worth a look.

“Nice afternoon”

We visited quite late in the day on the way back from Dinan, lots of parking, usual zoo prices , so could work out expensive for a larger family group. Lovely walk around the zoo with plenty of animals to see.
Watched the falconry display and although didn’t have a clue what the guy was saying, the birds were lovely to watch.
We didn’t visit the chateau, but it did look stunning.
As with all outside eating areas, lots of flies and wasps. We only had a drink, so can’t comment of quality of food. The inside eating area was quite dirty but it didn’t look like there was a lot of staff around.
Overall, a nice afternoon out and would recommend.

“Fabulous Family Day Out”

This is quite an understated place that is well worth a visit. There is a first rate zoo, with some of the best animal enclosures I’ve seen. In addition to this there is a grand Château and magnificent gardens. Then there is a children’s play area with bouncy castles and rides. They also put on a some free shows demonstrating falconry and hunting dogs. We went there and spent an entire day that was fun for the whole family. I would recommend this to anyone on holiday in the area that are looking for something to do. We didn’t look at the Château as our kids are young and don’t have the patience for it.

“Good zoo with plenty to see”

This is a great zoo with plenty to see. Admission price is reasonable. The layout is well organised and the gardens at the end are worth a visit. One let down was the food/cafe. Really, really bad. Over priced, cheap and nasty food, poor choice and inedible. The roast chicken was unrecognisable as roast chicken and tough as old boots. Pack your own picnic, there are plenty of picnic tables to enjoy it (the locals seem to know this as they all had their own picnic!). There is a microwave in the seating area available to heat up baby food.

“Lovely zoo with great shows..”

Well worth a visit. Really nice zoo with a great variety of animals and a lot of frogs croaking all over the park. All signs in French and English and lots of information about the animals on show. Nice restaurant with good facilities. Falconry show which was pretty cool and dog show too with the show pack, narrated in French with a sheet of the English commentary. Reasonable price too.

“Lovely place to spend an afternoon”

I have been here a few times and I think this is a lovely place to spend an afternoon especially if you are lucky enough to have good weather. Its definitely worth a visit. The grounds are lovely as is the chateau. The animal park is well cared for and they also provide information on the animals in english as well as french (most don’t ). Its also fully accessible for buggies and wheelchairs as the paths are well maintained. The bird show is great and it was a surprise to see storks used in the show this time! They were still trying to retrieve them afterwards but they appeared to be having a great time flying around! There is also a hunting dog show which is interesting to see. Unfortunately both the birds and dogs voice overs are only in french and with my limited knowledge i still dont know what they are telling you about what you are watching! The chateau is worth a visit but possibly without kids in tow! There is a brilliant inflatables area and small park which is a great place to sit and let the kids run around if they have any energy left. You will be guaranteed a quiet drive back after a visit here! There is a restaurant but it only seems to be open at certain times but I wouldn’t bother with it because it appears quite formal, so take a picnic instead.
