  • Amazing place enjoyed ourselves
  • C'est vraiment un lieu à part. On n'imagine pas tout ce qu'un président peut recevoir comme cadeaux. Des présents les plus précieux aux objets artisanaux de pleins de pays. Chaque objet a son étiquette avec son histoire. Et quand on descend dans la réserve, c'est un foisonnement de présents. Prévoir une bonne heure et demie pour la visite. Je salue l'initiative de Mr Chirac pour le don de ses cadeaux afin de les exposer au public. Une visite fascinante. Je recommande.
