Great place to visit, it is cheap to enter and you get a guide to walk around with. Lots of tortoises ranging from large to small, including babies! Fascinating to hear about their work, and the stories of different tortoises. Definitely worth a visit!
REally enjoyed visiting this place with my 2 children aged 5 & 6, whilst they loved seeing the tortoises it was really educational too and encouraged many questions. Play area good for younger children, picnic area and reasonably priced gift shop.
While a bit out of the way for anyone visiting on the coast -- it is worth the trip for anyone who is a nature/turtle enthusiast. This village is a non commercial turtle rescue center with the ultimate goal of protecting turtles that cannot protect themselves on their own. There are MANY turtles of different varieties. A fun excursion away... 更多
This is a small but interesting place to visit. The clinic showed the challenging work that they carry out. Great variety of tortoise and turtles on display. The tortoises were in great enclosures and very active when we visited. As previously stated the information was in three languages but an English speaker is required to correct some of the displays.... 更多

I learned a lot about turtles and enjoyed strolling around the various enclosures, although navigating the wooden passages and dirt paths was at times a bit challenging with my youngest child's stroller. My elder kids also enjoyed it, and we had a snack lunch of surprisingly tasty french fries, ice cream... 更多
Ok I'm a big child when it comes to turtles / tortoises so I would have enjoyed this anyway but my family also really enjoyed it too. The only downsides are it's not very well sign posted and can be a bit difficult to find and the coffee shop never seemed to be open
Quiet & off the beaten track - note there is no exit off the A570 at Gonfaron, you need to exit well before and take the back roads to the town & the tortoise village is signposted from there. Visit duration - around an hour to look around, longer if you eat or picnic there too. Lots of different tortoises... 更多
