Zoo's and Nature Parks

This page is dedicated to the variety of animals and venues throughout Normandy which can delight the whole family. Our home-grown animals can entertain for the entire holiday but the more intrepid venturers can experience a wide variety of animals from White Tigers to tropical butterflies. 

At Domaine de la Hamberie we have lots of animals. Our cuddly dogs, and friendly cats are just the start. We have a troop of Guinea Pigs and Rabbits as well as a calm Goose who is always on the lookout for spare bread. 

The site is surrounded by fields with cows who always like to say hello and the local area is a haven for ornithologists. We have woodpeckers that regularly visit, and several owls that live in our barns and spend Spring teaching their young how to fly around the site and a Heron can be seen regularly flying over.

The lake at the end of the road offer fishing for beginners - permits can be obtained from the local bar.

Slightly further afield, Normandy has two Zoo's an Alligator park, a tropical paradise and a zoological conservatory among other things.
