Falconry & Wildlife Park, Chauvigny, France

This falconry & wildlife park is set amidst the ruins of an ancient castle which brings a sense of atmosphere and romance to spectacular raptor shows where you can watch birds flying across the amphitheatre to their handlers. You’ll see eagles, great horned owls, condors, and Australian snowy owls, along with white storks, American parrots and vultures. Just down the road in the town is a great crêperie on a quiet plaza; bear it in mind to visit after you've been here, it's a nice way to round off the day.
