La Vallée des Singes or Valley of the Monkeys, is a large 15 hectare monkey and ape park about 15 minutes from the gîte.

Most of the 350 primates who live here travel freely through the trees and along ropes strung between them, or are enclosed on large islands.

You are able to get close to the animals and have some of them scampering around you as you walk along the paths. They're full of personality so they're very entertaining to watch. (Park staff are around to make sure everyone stays safe).

There are two picnic and restaurant areas, both of which come with a children's playground - one is near the gorillas, the other at the far end of the park by the chimpanzees.
