Focus on the Carrousel de Monsieur Caramel

Did you know that the sumptuous carousel and its wooden horses , its old cars and its many animals, are installed on the Allées de Tourny all year round (and not just for the market)? Monsieur Caramel welcomes children and adults eager to relapse into childhood, with a big smile. The carousel is a true work of art, in place for almost 28 years and manufactured locally (in Le Teich, a town in the Bassin d'Arcachon). Fun in the purest tradition of wooden rides. Soft music, lively horses, spinning cradles ... a moment of nostalgia for adults and pure pleasure for children!
