“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

The reason we visit every year. Not far from home but many species of birds which are very rare or extinct in UK are more common here

“Excellent bird watching facilities”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2014

La Brenne is a paradise for bird watchers, with good hides & access. The roads are quiet, so stopping is easy. There is an extensive series of etangs. There are 2 nature centres, one run by Tony Williams, ideally phone him for information, sitings etc.

“Visit to the natural park of the Brenne”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

Like the wildlife of central France, the medieval villages and cities left. Enjoy the excellent local food, especially fried or smoked carp dishes!

“nature lovers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

The bird watching hides were good but some of the paths were badly marked and took us away from the lake. Swimming in the belle Bouche
lake was excellent and all the facilities were well organised.

“Peaceful and beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

This nationalpark is very nice. Small villages with good restuarants. A lot of different birds to watch. And not much people. A quiet and peaceful place in the middle of France.
