Overview
More
Thoiry is a rare example of esoteric Renaissance architecture where the sun rises or sets in the central arch following the solstices. Home since 1559 of the Counts of La Panouse, the drawing rooms offer visitors fine family portraits, furniture and tapestries presented by costumed guides. The 300 acre gardens: Rhododendron woods, Maze, Autumn, Rose, and Perfume Gardens, perennial borders give year round pleasure. Thoiry's world famous 350 acre animal reserve is open year round.

The safari park element was interesting with the zebra and ostriches being very brave and approaching the car looking for a snack. The zoo area will keep the kids entertained although if you want to go through the lion enclosure there is an extra cost.
