Monkey Valley, Romagne, France

Serious monkey business. Over 450 animals covering 34 primate species, with over 700 born here. The 18 hectares of natural wooded parkland are home to the biggest gorilla colony in France and the largest Bonobo family in Europe. Watch the monkeys at feeding time, see the lemurs and the mini farm where you can get up close to goats and sheep; learn all the behind the scenes stuff from exhibitions and films. There’s a playground for younger children and a café.

Opening times vary throughout the year  32.2. miles from Chateau La Chutelière
