A brilliantly choreographed show with a fantastic range of stunning birds - from hawks and eagles to the more unusual storks and vultures. The birds fly across the amphitheatre from handler to handler (or not, if they're feeling a bit wayward!), some brushing the audience's heads with their feathers, others landing incredibly close and wandering nonchalantly past our feet. A... More

Lovely afternoon out, we parked in a car park, lovely walk down to Castle through narrow, cool winding walkway. Great crepe and drinks to be had in the square. Very picturesque place. Boiling hot when we went, not recommended. Try a cooler day. 12 euros each have to get in, 8 for children. Reasonable price, considering the number of birds... More

Set in the ruin of an old fort or chateau is the brilliant attraction. The 'Giants of the Sky' spectacle is worth every penny of the entrance fee!! Having a bald Eagle and vultures the size of pigs flying so close to you that their wings actually touch you is an amazing feeling. Being that close to so much power... More

We visited on a hot day for the first display. Forget your UK one man and his bird display. This is action from beginning to end. Sit in the middle of the small amphitheatre near the central railings for the best photo opportunities and the best interaction with the birds. The commentary is all in French but this does not...

Set inside the castle at Chauvigny. Don't expect to wander around a castle and see a single chap demonstrating birds like we get in theUK. Instead what you get is the castle taken over by the birds so as you explore around the castle you find the Eagles, then around another corner you find the parrots etc. What you really... More

What a great show. A wonderful setting high up in the town with beautiful views across the Vienne River. The whole show is in French and although my language skills are not that good, it did not detract from the amazing spectacle. There are a variety of birds on show that I haven't seen before and very well trained to... More

Excellent display I have been twice and intend to go again. For the best experience make sure you go on a warm sunny day.

The setting for this spectacle is breathtaking, along with the atmospheric music, commentary (albeit it only in French) and of course the birds themselves, making this a wonderful afternoon. To see all the birds flying free, sometimes six at a time, is magical. We took our two dogs in and one of the vultures landed right next to us. I... More

Third time we have visited this attraction, and it gets better. From start of show to finish about 45mins it's non stop birds in flight from colourful parrots, huge birds of prey, falcons, storks, owls and many many more. At 12€ for an adult it is excellent value. You sit in an amphitheatre setting of a ruined castle and the... More

What a great hour spent observing some spectacular bird of prey. Guys at the kiosk not the friendliest, but we didn't go to see them. The narrative is all in French but this did not spoil the experience. Must see if in Chauvigny. Nice little crêpes restaurant opposite too. Sit on the right as you enter the seating area for...
