    Animals are very well looked after. The lady is welcoming and caring. Beautiful place well located. Highly recommanded. Recommand calling before if out of high season. Will come back for a ride to the beach next time.

    We had a wonderful afternoon with the family. Bérénice, our guide, was charming and close to the animals. She allowed us to learn many things about donkeys and all farm animals. Thank you for this beautiful moment on your farm.
