Only 15 minutes away by car from the lovely seaside town of Granville in Normandy, the Champrépus zoo will keep you busy for at least half a day. I used to visit the park often as a child and went back last month while on a trip back home. Well, my last visit was probably 15 years ago and how surprised I was! If the zoo used to be a bit shabby, and the animals sad-looking, it has now become such a beautiful park with great gardens and hundreds of playful creatures. The giraffes are a must-see and the young ones will love the cute lemurs and the farm animals as you can get very close to them. The information boards are fun and translated in English and they even have an affordable restaurant with great local food such as delicious salted caramel desserts! I would definitely recommend the zoo if you are in the area, even if you don't have children and, like me, want to practise your photography skills!
