What an interesting place to see, it's not what I expected. Being able to hand feed monkeys and having them literally cross your path as you walk through. My kids loved it, I think they thought it was a bit surreal. The staff were extremely knowledgable and I liked that they approached you to give to interesting info and facts... More

This place is well worth a visit for young - old or just for kids wanting to have fun! The walk with the monkeys is well guided and with plenty of staff to help you along! Feeding the monkeys as we walked was the highlight of our boys holiday! Not too expensive at 9€ per adult!

This is a good way to get up close and personal with the monkeys, however they only give you 3 pieces of popcorn per person, so once you are done with your three pieces, you can walk around, but no more interaction with the monkeys. The walk can take up to 40 minutes. There is a playground on the area... More

La Montagne des Singes is a great experience, not only for kids but a grown-up as well! I’ve visited this place with my friend from Alsace and absolutely enjoyed it. The monkeys have quite a big terrain for them, they are free to walk around, not forced to stay near people. However, don’t you worry – there for sure will... More

Had an amazing time at 'la montagne des singes', were there for about an hour. But I was so surprised by how many monkeys there were and just how tame they were. I was expecting to have to look around and see one every so often, and when walking in it seemed it would be this way, as most stay... More

Not to be missed, especiallyif you have children. Monkeys - more or less tame - swing down from the trees for food. Bags of nuts are on sale, so you can feed them. It is quitean extensive monkey park so you can easily spend an hour or so without getting bored

It takes about an hour to walk round, you are given a very small amount of popcorn to feed the monkeys with, who are all sitting on the guard rails looking fairly bored and they will take the popcorn very gently from your hand. Ok for children as they will enjoy seeing so many monkeys up close, but nothing else... More
