Valley of the Monkeys is great crac! Two of us drove down here from Poitiers and spent the day wandering around. It could be better signposted but with the help of a map is not THAT hard to find. There is excellent parking, very helpful and friendly staff throughout and it is NOT expensive. Monkeys of all sorts and sizes are everywhere. There are even areas where they roam free and are beside, above and behind you. A new experience for us. In this park one can get up-close and personal with the inhabitants. The silverback gorrilla ( which you will NOT get up-close and personal with ) is an impressive gent. The chimps are entertaining. The baboons are a wee bit intimidating. This is a truly different experience of non-native wildlife which enthralled us. There is a restaurant which, thankfully, does not charge an arm and leg. I would heartily recommend this place. It could be done in half a day but I would recommend that you take your time, be relaxed and give it a whole day.
