In the heart of the Gers, in the town of Biran, between Auch and Vic-Fezensac, on a 45 hectare property, discover this astonishing breeding of donkeys from the Pyrenees, a protected local breed.
Pet the donkeys and their mother, attend the care, the milking and taste their precious milk. Visit the lavender grove, and depending on the season, attend the harvest and the distillation. Go for a walk through the woods and meadows of the property. A little air of Provence in the heart of the Gers!
In July and August, every day at 17 p.m. (by reservation), meet Cécile and Manu who are offering you a free visit.
