Really friendly owners and minimal messing about required. Just turn up, plonk your kids on really well cared for, docile donkeys and lead them round the well marked out trails. The kids loved it and the walk down to the lake was really lovely.

We went with our children (6&8) and they each rode a donkey for 30 minutes. Afterwards they went into the woods and found clues of how to draw a donkey, which they enjoyed too. The total cost was a reasonable €22 and the staff were...More

The owners are what you can call real donkey lovers and have a great way of sharing this with whoever comes along. 2 €/adult (children free) for a simple visit, 9.5 € for a 30 min tour on donkey.
