“Great show”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Seeing your friends giggling like children is the best experience...they are in their 50's I should add!! A good show and well worth the money we thought.....best to sit at the back at the side of the platform for fun as long as you are ok with birds "bombing" you!

“gorgeous”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Great setting. Good to see birds flying about, all but a bit false as trained to go to food. Made all the more interesting when they decided wild pigeons more interesting than the dead chicks on offer! Some encounters very close. No shelter though, so very hot in full sun, go prepared!

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Set amidst the medieval ruins of Chauvigny, watching eagles, vultures, owls, falcons and buzzards soaring through the skies - and low over the heads of the spectators - this made a lovely outing on a sunny afternoon. There's an opportunity to visit the birds before and after the display, which lasts about one hour. The birds all looked to be in excellent condition, and clearly enjoyed what they were doing. Expect wing tips and jesses to lightly stroke your head as they fly backwards and forwards! As well as raptors there were macaws and kookaburros joining in the fun, and graceful storks dancing in the air.

Check opening and show times carefully - they vary from month to month and day to day.

And before and after there is much to explore in the beautiful old town of Chauvigny.

“Excellent bird show must be seen”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

This was a late change to our plans as we had a spare day in the Poitiers area we headed out the medieval village of Chauvigny to look around and see 'Les Géants du Cieln' bird show in the 'Château d’Harcourt'. I'm pleased we did, well worth the money. We lucky as the show starts at 3pm and the break in the rainy May weather allowed the show to proceed. Apart for two other adults and a school party the place was empty making much more enjoyable. They flew the usual sort of birds of prey and some vultures that seemed to head for straight into the party of school kids rather than were directed

“Fantastic”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

I have been to this place at least 3 times a year for the last 4 years. I take all my visiting family and friends. The setting is stunning and the birds superb. The falconers are brilliant. Not to be missed.
