As non French speakers we felt we didn’t get the best from this attraction. We chose the boat tour and marshes experience at 20 euros per person. The 1 hour boat ride itself is lovely - very relaxing and in the warm sunshine the gentle...More

Dear Jane P,
Firstly we would like to thank you for your commentary. We are happy that you liked our visit with the boat ride.
We understand that a visit in French is not specially adapted for a foreigner, that’s why we made some translations...More
We’re a family of 4 with an 11 and 13 yr old looking for a fun morning out. We have kayaked before and thought we’d have a go here. Took the 2 hr option and paddled down through the waterways and back as instructed in...More

We loved the salt lakes. Well worth a trip up them in a canoe. We had a really good time. We went as a family and laughed our way along the lakes.
Safety vest is provided.
Great fun and lots of fun
