Bird of prey shows
Discover the free flying bird of prey shows offered from May to October. Attend demonstrations putting on a show of a variety of diurnal and nocturnal birds of prey. Falconers will provide you with very important information on the behaviour and life of these birds. Although only about ten species participate in the shows, the castle contains more than sixty species, some of which are endangered.
Don’t forget to explore the park during your visit. The splendid gardens, listed as a historical monument, offer a preserved environment. You will appreciate the magnificent French-style garden surrounded by a park which has been arranged to look like an English-style garden. Enjoy a nice walk among yew trees, atlas oak trees and cork oak trees while breathing in the fresh air of this enchanting place.
A multitude of activities awaits you throughout the year: falconry workshops, going into the aviary and feeding exotic birds, the musketeer workshop with fencing lessons, archaeology discoveries and lots more.
