This is a super half day out, we are a large family and all members really enjoyed the trip. Disabled and pushchair friendly. La Planete des Crocodile is out the way a bit but well worth the visit. It is located next to a huge...More

It has been pouring with rain in France the past couple of days so we went for something to do inside. We had no idea what to expect, but weren't disapointed. Most signs are in English as well as French, but the talk was all...More
