We saw lot of different animals in a lovely setting - some amazing goats doing agility and camels and llamas - got to even brush their coats. We did some crazy stuff making bracelets out of the wool too - really interesting afternoon out

Fantastic place where people can get up close and personal with the animals, see the amazing work that has been done with the animals through shows throughout the day and ask the friendly owners and helpers many questions. Highly recommend to all!

I had a great time at La Maison, I was there in April, so there were all sorts of adorable baby animals, and feeding and petting them was the best! <3 Talula the llama even gives kisses!

Thank you for your message. From Either Tarbes or Mont de Marsan catch the bus going in the opposite direction and get off after an hour at Castelnau Riviere Basse.
