    Very nice theme park. Lots of attractions for all ages. Avoid week-ends with bank holidays before or after the weekend if you don’t have great patience skills. Waiting time can be 120 to 140 minutes for most popular attractions (tornado chasers, Time Machine, extraordinary journey, etc.). Don’t expect to pay a lesser price even when attractions (objectif Mars, Mysteries of Kubic) are technically down.

    The old harbor of La Rochelle simply looks great. We had a hotel with direct view on the old harbor and the harbor towers. While a bit overcrowded with tourists till late afternoon, this small sity really managed to preserve the ancoioent amtophere and charme of sailing age. Perfect.

    You walk around the aquarium and discover the beautiful life under water of all major oceans/ sees.
    Everything is writing in both french and English.
    The main large aquarium is nicely designed to allow visitors to see from various angles
    A lovely experience for all ages

    I love monkeys so we just had to visit this place. We arrived at the park just after 10am when the park opened, plenty of parking space available. It costs 22 euros per adult to enter the park.

    You get a map of the zones when you buy your ticket which helps you navigate, but there are also some signs dotted around the park. The map also details feeding times and it was fascinating being able to observe a couple of these. There's also seating dotted around certain zones which lets you just have a break and take in the environment.

    You can't feed the monkeys yourself and are asked to only eat food in the designated picnic areas. There was a restaurant on site but we just took our own sandwich with us. There were several toilets located around the park and they were very clean and well maintained.

    The park itself is so very well done, really looks natural and it was wonderful walking through the zones and seeing the monkeys in a more natural and free environment. The only ones we didn't see were the chimpanzees - I guess they were sleeping when we passed their zone around 2pm!

    A wonderful place to visit!

    This unassuming museum is unassuming, straightforward and applies to much of France. It consists of various replica sites from schoolrooms to shops to businesses. Schooldesks are laid out down a flight of steps, with scratchy pen and inkwell provided, so that you can write on the paper,which lies on each desk. I couldn't get my pen to work properly and so was denied the chance to write La CIgale et la Fourmi by La Fontaine. Probably just as well. Other exhibits centred round shops, bars, dentists (during the Inquisition by the look of it) hairdressers etc. For me well worth a visit.

    Spent a great morning here, the staff were very helpful. Tonnes of stuff to do. 3 year old particularly enjoyed the sensory area and musical trail. We were there slightly off season so some of the things mentioned in the other reviews were not open but that didn’t really matter as the games kept everyone entertained.

    What an amazing zoo and so well designed.
    Feeding the giraffes was a great experience and not something you would be able to do when going to a zoo.
    I can see why this is the biggest zoo in Europe

    It is definitely the best activity in the Island !

    It is cheap, it is increbly high and with a spectacular view from the Top !

    It has been built in 1854 and you will climb more than 250 stairs !!

    Is has been very well restored and you must go there once when you visit the Island !

    Remarkable and unique Romanesque church overlooking Poitiers. Beautiful stained glass windows, painted columns and a glorious set of paintings & sculptures. Far less blingy than many richly decorated Catholic churches and with an authentic & accessible intimacy that is not often found in significant churches of its reputation.

    These mighty towers are the anchorpoints and strongpoints of the Hugenotte defenses against the French king. Motion picture fans might also remember these fortifications from the movie "Das Boot".

    We had a lovely day out in this incredible village and the church was an amazing visit. Recommend for a lovely family day out including walk round village and a lovely French lunch and ice cream

    Worth the drive to the end of the island, great views, plentiful parking, small fee to climb the lighthouse.
    If you have small children or adults who wish to be children north beach access gives rock pools and interesting rock strata. There are cafes, shops but a lovely picnic site should you wish.
    Sadly the madding crowds are there in abundance.
