An unmissable stopover, this park offers you the opportunity to discover in all seasons, and in a space of total freedom, an exceptional ornithological fauna, in quantity and diversity, as well as many native land animals of wetlands.
Installed on an area of 100 ha, including 30 ha of water bodies, it is both an exceptional stopover for migrants flying over the region and a privileged biotope for the reproduction of native ornithological and terrestrial species.
There are now nearly 235 species there, a figure that is steadily increasing, which you can discover from the paths along the three lakes of the estate or from the projection room, installed at the back of the "Tool barn", where the antics of all the animals captured by the cameras placed in the most suitable places are projected in real time, as well as in delayed or distant shots. The estate is a place of life that changes with the rhythm of time and the seasons.
The Tool Barn allows you to discover a large number of objects that our ancestors used in the past. Divided into five parts: The forge, The plowing, The harvest, The farmyard and The harvest, you will be able to view these tools, learn about or remember the different ways of living at the time.
