Stopped in on our way back from Mont St Michel and was a really good experience considering we knew nothing about it. There was a very large variety of reptiles and many too! The exhibits had informative signs in French and some parts translated into English. The tortoises were outside and there were many types, peaked by the giant ones... More

We are walking past this attraction whilst heading back to the carpark, and made a spontaneous visit. We were all pleasantly surprised. At first, with the first few small tortoise enclosures I thought it might be quite boring, repetitive and amateur. I quickly changed my mind the further we got along. It is a fantastic reptile zoo, with the alligators... More

A great visit, especially with under tens, all animals were very well cared for and the visit is well organised. Top tip for grown ups- the coffee machine at the end!

We visited twice during our 2 week stay - due to our 5 year olds insistence! There are feeding times for the crocodiles, tortoises and reptiles / snakes so you can spend more than 3 years. In reality the place is a good 3 hours and after that young children have seen enough. The first time we went the French... More

We stopped here on the way to St Michel. We had a 4 yr old and a 16 yr old with us. Both really enjoyed the whole experience. 4 year old loved being allowed in the pen with the tortoises, 16 yr loved the alligator feeding! Not many staff about keeping an eye on unruly children but I guess parents... More

Giant tortoises, snakes and lizards and a large variety of alligators and crocodiles make this an interesting way to spend a couple of hours especially as it is so close to the attraction of Mont St Michel. Discount vouchers available if you frequent MacDonalds on the back of receipts. There is a gift shop but refreshments a little lacking.

We stopped here as have many others after visiting Mont St Michel to give our 9 year old a bit of the day for her to enjoy! She did enjoy it as did we but just thought it was a bit expensive for the amount of time you spend there ( I think it was about 34 euros for 2... More

By chance on the way to my most favourite place in the world Mont St Michel we stopped off here. Very warm but interesting and plenty of reptiles on view. Scary putting my head up a glass case surrounded with snakes.

They have a LOT of Alligators. What more can I say? It provides all that it promises and nothing more. Stopped here on a total whim having been to Mont St Michele (like I imagine most people do), pretty pleased with this find and certainly kept me entertained for the best part of several hours. A considerable number of tortoises... More
