This farm is every donkey lover’s dream. It offers a wonderful chance to greet the adorable animals who call the land home. And, as a bonus, the site features an ancient tomb practically hiding in plain sight.
L’asinerie du Dolmen is a unique and interesting stop when traveling through the Pays de la Loire region of France. As it’s a donkey farm, the main attraction is learning about the many different breeds they house. You can go into the enclosure to interact with the friendly big-eared beasts, who will likely follow you around in search of attention.
The other attraction at the farm is a bit more unexpected. Situated on the property is a megalithic tomb called a dolmen (hence the name of the farm). The enigmatic burial place is estimated to be from 5000 BC.
The farm really a charming place for animal lovers and history buffs alike. It also sells various donkey milk products, and there’s also the option of tasting donkey milk itself if you’re so inclined.
