Really friendly owners and minimal messing about required. Just turn up, plonk your kids on really well cared for, docile donkeys and lead them round the well marked out trails. The kids loved it and the walk down to the lake was really lovely.

The owners are what you can call real donkey lovers and have a great way of sharing this with whoever comes along. 2 €/adult (children free) for a simple visit, 9.5 € for a 30 min tour on donkey.

We visited Calins-Ca-Anes after reading the few British reviews on the site. All we can say is that we totally agree with everything said. The owner and her family were brilliant with our three year old daughter Sophia, they were warm and engaging and they...More
