We really enjoyed this show- well worth a visit. We felt that there was too much talking/acting and not enough riding, but this is possibly because it was all in French and our basic understanding could not keep up.

I never heard of a fortified mill but it was needed in desperate times. A dog is the doorbell, alerting his master that he has vistors. The owner speaks almost no English but hands you a sheet of subtitles as he explains the features. More interesting than gristmills I have seen here in the states.

We dropped by here on our way to find a restaurant to have dinner and decided to take the tour of the caves before eating. We did not regret that at all! The caves are amazing and just magical. It was a bit of walking...MoreThank you for your commentary. As you said all of our guides don't speak english that's why we are working on an application for translating the guide's speech to english people. See you soon.

la nature grandeur nature ! Plus de 2h30 de Promenade en famille 42 hectares de causse pour admirer 150 espèces animales
We visited this place whilst we were on holiday in the area and really enjoyed ourselves. The thing that impressed us the most was how much space the animals had. All of the animals seemed happy and well looked after. There is a good variety of animals here ranging from bison, beers, wolves as well as a variety of other animals. We spent about half a day here walking around at a leisurely pace, the place itself is big so there is a fair amount of walking. Overall a very good place to see a good variety of animals who are well looked after.

The Gouffre de Padirac, the most famous cave in Europe, is considered as one of the most interesting geological sites in France. After a vertiginous descent, by lift or stairs, of 103 metres, you embark on a boat trip along the subterranean river with spectacular views on the galleries. That's when you discover the "Grande Pendeloque" - a gigantic stalactite of 60 metres high - hanging by a string, it appears to admire itself in the "Lac de la Pluie". You then walk towards the "Lac des Gours" or the "Salle du Grand Dôme" with its 94 metres high vault.
Going down in order to go on a small bout for 20 minutes? What for? And if one does not feel well will he stay there forever?
Well you might enjoy it. As for myself I would have rather stay on the ground

If you're fit and able to do it, park at the top and walk down. Amazing views and a stunning place. It is probably extremely busy in peak season but it was fine for us in September. The only problem we had was finding somewhere to get a drink rather than a full meal, so take a bottle of water with you cos it's a long walk back up the hill!

A number of comments have been made about the inaccuracies of the models but I think this criticism is misplaced. Our grandchildren aged 7,5 and 2 enjoyed the visit, particularly the animated models. We didn't expect an absolutely accurate depiction of the creatures on display. The information - in French and English - was short and usually interesting.
A cafe area and decent toilets would enhance the attraction but nevertheless we had a pleasant afternoon at the park.

Bumpy if you're in a wheelchair. Wonderful owls, don't let children climb up and yell at them; there was some of that and the owls clearly didn't like it.
Eagles, vultures, condors, parrots, parakeets and cockatoos.
The demo was dramatic to say the least, a ballet of falcons wheeling as they pleased while a condor, Flo, went bananas, still in her pen, leaping pulling at her ankle chain till she got her turn and she did, she most certainly did. A vulture, Giselle? was led round to meet everyone, coaxed by a treat and one for my husband's bucket list...trod hard on his foot as she passed by, her eye glued to the treat.
The demo, all in French, addressed ecology worries and aimed to encourage the children to care about the birds and the wildlife of all continents.
10 euros each for adults, and some reductions for children etc. Very well worth it.
Wonderful birds, deserving of the support and money their visitors bring.

La Foret des Singes A magical moment, a unique encounter ! An exciting walk amongst more than 150 free roaming Barbary Macaques. No bars, no cages to hinder your view. A direct contact with this amazing species. Feeding talks throughout the day.
We couldn't decide whether to visit or not and then decided there wasn't anything like this at home. I'm glad we did!
I would recommend taking a picnic as there are loads of picnic tables and a little park for smaller children. There is a small cafe too but the picnic area was so nice and there is loads of parking. We were able to return our picnic to the car before proceeding to the park. You go through a fenced area where a lady tells you safety procedures about not touching the monkeys and keeping a 1metre distance from them. She also gave these instructions in English for our benefit. And she gives you a small handful of popcorn each to feed the monkeys. My kids 14, 22 and 10 thought it was great fun, even my husband fed a monkey. At 36€ for the 5 of us we felt it wasn't hugely expensive either. Well worth a visit, a nice way to spend a couple of hours!

The tourist office at Carennac is located next to the Eglise-Saint-Pierre, in part of the building that was once the medieval Priory. They provided us with a very good map and guide to the town, in English, and although I can speak some French the lady behind the desk was happy to explain, in English, everything the town had to offer and the best order to see it all. She also recommended we visit the cloisters, explaining that there was a fee of 3 Euros to do so, and how to use the token required to open the door to them. It was the perfect introduction to what turned out to be a very pleasant visit.
