About
Le plus haut d'Europe! Dans un décor purement naturel au milieu d'une forêt de mélèzes, vous pourrez découvrir la plupart des représentants de notre faune vivant ou ayant vécu dans les Alpes. Accolée au zoo, la piscine alpestre est lovée dans les rochers. Etonnante et pleine de poésie, taillées dans le roc, elle est en complète harmonie avec la nature alpine environnante. Le restaurant saura ravir vos papilles dans un cadre unique. L’intérieur offre une ambiance canadienne en passant par la Laponie, faisant un crochet par la Finlande et fini avec une convivialité bien valaisanne.

Very relaxing, victim of its success ...

The lac (actually a big natural swimming pool) is magnificent. However too many people and the entrance was blocked, but this allowed us to visit the zoo, which was a nice walk and the kids liked it.
The restaurant is .. just a restaurant ... difficult to find a place to sit.

Swimming in the the natural pool was an magnificent experience.

We wouldn’t go back even with free tickets

What a disappointment! The animals are kept in small and badly maintained spaces; it looks like a zoo from one century ago. We all felt so sad and counting the minutes to leave the place. The road to the place, extremely scenic, is the only thing with the excursion.

ALPINE LAGUNA POOL IN THE ROCKS
Jul 2019 • Couples
In Switzerland it is seldom to find a pure water pool built or settled into natural rocks. In rivers you can, but in a domesticated environment with natural care, it is less frequent, or impossible. One can even asks herself or himself why: it is cheaper and simpler. In Les Marécottes the owner family didi it and it is pire environmental magic. See how families enjoy it. And come los enjoy it. A big natural surprise, an island of charm a lacunal of fresh and cool atmosphere in Summertime. Excellent restaurant also. Cool prices.

A very nice place for young kids
Jul 2018 • Family
Bear in mind that Switzerland in a tiny country and likewise most things are smaller too. Like this little zoo up in the mountain. It's very small, you can cover the whole area in 30 minutes. It's ideal for little children.
The area has a swimming pool as well but it's not heated. Perfect on a really hot day.
There is a cafe/restaurant and a kiosk. Free parking. A very beautiful area to visit in summer.

Unique natural water hole for swimming, alpine zoo / lovely mountain village with plenty to do
Jul 2018 • Family
We really enjoyed our afternoon in les Marécottes. This is an ideal getaway for the day; be sure to make use of the 70 m long heated pool, which is a natural swimming hole surrounded by steep rocks and an evergreen forest. There is a small children's swimming area in the pool, but then it gets deep very quickly. However, with adult supervision, children can swim the length of the pool. There is a small grassy area to sit on, as well as some flat spots on the rocks around the pool. The restaurant is right up next to the pool, so much that you could have your coffee and watch the kids swim. They serve pizza non-stop, ice cream, and a few other items. Full bar.

The zoo right next to the pool has plenty to see, and is a simply a nice walk through a forested area (e.g. raccoons, wolves, bears, goats, mountain goats, owls, reindeer, sheep, etc.).

Entry fee is 18 CHF/adult, includes the pool and zoo. 9 chf if just for pool or for zoo. Children under 5 are free. While it is pricey, both facilities are open until sundown (advertising as late as 23h00).

Les Marécottes is the base for a small ski station, so there is also a gondola that can be taken from the town if you wish to do some hiking a bit higher up. All in all, a lovely little getaway for the afternoon, just 20 minute drive from Martigny.

Small Zoo on the mountains near Martigny (CH)
Jun 2017
I live in Martigny and i visited the piscine and Zoo in Marecottes. The piscine or swimming pool is ok but the zoo is small and the animal in it if you are a good trekker you can find on any mountain in Switzerland if you pay attention.

Kids loved the pool and jumping from the rocks
Aug 2017 • Family
A great place to relax while the children entertain themselves for hours in the pool - jumping from the rocks. The zoo was nice to see - would not really recommend only visiting the zoo - unless you have children under 10 - but combined with the pool it was a great day out.

Nice place
Jul 2017 • Family
Been there on Saturday and visited the zoo, the swimming pool and the restaurant. It was very hot on that day and most animals were hiding somewhere )) but we saw some deers and goats and fed them. The zoo is quite small so you can skip it without loosing anything. The pool is approximately 50m long but is narrow. The water is fresh but ok. There is a small narrow area at the entrance to the pool for children but no toboganns for them. Restaurant serves several types of pizza which we found tasty. After 14 pm the place started to be crowded and we were glad that we were already leaving at that time.

Nice mountain zoo and pool for the family.
Sep 2016 • Family
We went her on a Sunday and our kids really enjoyed feeding the animals (2 CHF/pack of food) - these are all "mountain" animals i.e. don't expect to see lions or tigers. The pool next door is supposed to be heated by solar panels and it was quite cold for us - the kids did not mind though and had a good splash...
