What a great place to visit!
We visited on a midweek afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed walking around feeding the sanglier.
On arrival we were given a bag full of stale bread.
The gentleman who owns the farm explained to us that while the wild boar are shy, their love of bread is all encompassing. Therefore, when they see a white bag, they come running over to you. He was not wrong.
To begin with, we wondered if we'd see any boars... It'd didn't take long before the cheeky wee things were loitering, waiting for us to throw them a few crusts.
We really enjoyed our walk around the farm (it's probably about a 1km circular route - maybe a little longer). Our visit ended back in the shop where we tried - and purchased- some wonderful rillet and pâté. Wonderful stuff!
This isn't a "Disney-fied" farm. It's a working farm in rural South West France. The tourist side is very much secondary to the agricultural business - and it looks like a fairly new venture for the family. That is, however, what makes it so interesting and worth visiting. The gentleman who runs the place is lovely. He took so much time explaining things to us. English isn't spoken here, so do brush up on your French before visiting - even some very rusty schoolboy/girl French will help you out here, and the owner was very kind and patient to us as we tried to chat in Franglais!
I definitely recommend this visit for adults and children - especially if you like pâté or rillet.

We visited 3 days ago. It appears in the fall a feeding at 3 does not occur and thus you can show up, pay the fee, collect the bread and take a nice circular walk around the penned areas. You will probably have 3-4 opportunities to have encounters with the animals and then end up at the small store for a tasting. Nice way to spend an hour or so in the country.

Visited today and this place is fantastic value. Yes it’s a bit of a ‘working progress’ in terms of the car park etc but for an hour it’s money well spent.

An interesting way to spend an hour or so, and an opportunity to get up close to an animal you probably wouldn't want to meet in the wild. The owners are very hospitable and provide a handy info pack in English and some very stale bread to feed the boar. At our time of visit we saw two tiny baby boars, no bigger than a domestic cat, which definitely put our youngest off trying the boar pate at the end. The visit is rounded off with an opportunity to buy some homemade boar products.

For a very cheap entry fee we spent a fun and fascinating 2 hours wandering around the lovely wooded grounds feeding bread to wild boars. It was particularly fun to throw multiple pieces of bread to distract the older boars to ensure the baby humbug boars could get some. They are called humbugs because they are small, stripey and cute. The shop also has a good range of reasonably priced wild boar products.

We visited with our three children 12, 9 and 7 and they loved walking around the woods seeing wild boar. We were lucky to see lots of very cute babies which our kids really enjoyed. For €10.50 including a bag of bread we spent around 1 hour 30 minutes wandering around the woodland feeding the boar. A very pleasant way to spend a morning or afternoon. I did buy some pate in the shop but there was no pressure to do so. The nice young man in the shop offered us the chance to try it too. A lovely authentic French experience.

I have always wanted to see wild boar and this was a great way to see them. They are living in large, woodland areas in large family groups and have plenty of room to run around in.
We were made welcome by the owner and provided with bread to feed them with, with clear instructions about what was safe and what not to do.
I loved seeing the different stages of maturation of the boar in their natural habitat.
We decided not to go to see the ducks as we spent so long observing the boar which was our primary reason for visiting.
Make sure you have sensible shoes for walking as the tracks are woodland rides. This is not a zoo with good pathways. It is far, far better than that.
Would highly recommend.
