A natural land where more than 70 species of animals in a prehistoric landscape live in vegetation. This area is committed to the conservation of species in natural surroundings. In the year 1961, Louis Gay created this zoo making it one of the leading French private parks. 50 years and 2 generations later, the Zoo de Doue la Fontaine has stayed a family business. The park has become a place where people from all over the world share their passion for nature. It is home to more than 300 birds and South American species: ibis, flamingos, parrots, Amazons, vultures, stilts and ducks playing and the giant anteater. Humboldt Penguins, one of the endangered species around the world, will join this year macaws, flamingos and spoonbills. There is a pool of 70 meters long, full of waterfalls, where you can enjoy the best natural spectacles.
It's a hidden village but worth seeking out, full of objects used by our ancestors. This is where we realize the evolution of humanity, but imagine our surprise when we saw that there were still people living in these caves. There are inhabited houses and restaurants.
In Spain, it is known as a picnic. The tradition of guinguettes in the Loire is rather old. Impressionist and contemporary painters have captured on canvas this recreation time of the 'burdened' bourgeois artisans sitting around the river. They are common in areas with lots of plants, trees and other vegetation, in well-known places to visit or along major rest routes (such as in the Loire). Meadows, valleys, forests and riverbanks with trees provide welcome shade from the sun to rest. You can enjoy a barbecue, sandwiches or just some refreshments as an impromptu picnic. You can admire the magnificant scenery and be close to nature.
