Nous remercions chaleureusement Laurent pour son accueil et cette excellente expérience. Laurent nous a fait partager sa passion pour les abeilles et la nature en général, ses explications étaient très intéressantes et très claires. Nous avons adoré approcher les abeilles en toute sécurité et dans le calme, très appréciable :-) L'exploitation de Laurent est un endroit très agréable et apaisant où nous avons pu approcher en plus des abeilles, deux ânesses toutes câlines, canards, poules, et une petite chèvre qui venait d'avoir 3 petits chevreaux tous mignons. La dégustation en fin de visite conclue l'activité en régalant nos papilles ! Nous recommandons vivement cette activité qui vaut vraiment le détour !

Laurent and Roger were very nice. We had a good look at the bees and the kids enjoyed their time feeding the donkeys too.

Great hour spent with Laurent. Informative and friendly. Great for kids. Well worth the journey. Good value and you can buy some of his many honey based products. What’s not to like?
