Endroit fantastique à découvrir en pleine nature, avons pris un téléphérique le soir, il y avait peu de monde au sommet ce qui nous a permis de profiter du parc animalier sans personne. Chevres, boucs... more »Fantastic place to discover in nature, took a cable car in the evening, there were few people at the top which allowed us to enjoy the animal park without anyone.
