It's a recovery for different types of birds (hawks, eagles, but also parrots) you can see in their cages in a small park, but you can also see "at work" performing different exercises as requested by their trainers, that explain their peculiarities and behaviour in nature (all birds here were actually born in captivity)

The eagles and other birds of prey were great. The handlers very friendly and gave the children a chance to handle some of the birds. It was fun.

About an hour of interesting display of birds. Able to walk around to see other Barnyard animals, good outing for small kids. Tip: the red train will make an exceptional stop at round-point de valmy and then you can walk up the hill about 15 minutes - really not bad if you are up for a walk and have no... More

The show was well done and fun for the kids. They emphasises the pedagogic aspect and provide information about the different birds and their behaviour. The staff is very friendly and nice with their birds. The show duration is around one hour and is a little long if you have very small children. You should understand french to enjoy the... More

A super well presented show. Worth every cent. We will return again, again and again. The flying display was well in the explanation of all the birds on show.

Spent the afternoon at Valmy and we saw a great show with Ugo, Alexandra and the Team. The 'birds' were fabulous. They look healthy and happy. The are cheaky also, if you allow the personification! Wonderful presentation and good funny times. It's a must do if you're around! Thanks guys.

Ideal to take a picnic there and enjoy the panoramic views .Pitty the commentary was not in any language other than French.There is ample parking,even in high season.Some weddings take place in the Chateau,and observing the wedding 'procession' arrive was an added bonus on...

A nice variety of birds to walk around and some very friendly donkeys to feed. The Eagles show was okay, all of the commentary was in French (and spoken very quickly) so did become a bit boring in places if you can't speak the lingo, especially for the children.

There is a wonderful nature trail which takes about an hour to complete and the views of the harbour are truly spectacular. there is a bird of prey display however there is a charge... More

Tremendous display of all sorts of birds of prey from Kestrels to Eagles via Hawks, Buzzards, and Vultures with some beautiful Owls thrown in - or rather flown in - for good measure. Sadly their time is limited by the desire of the Commune to make more money out of their Rock Concert weekend.
