    Pleasant moment where you can discover beautiful butterflies, and beautiful discovery for children. A video to learn more very interesting too bad that he was not someone who did could exchange! And if you have the opportunity to go eat, food simple, local and delicious. We ate delicious bread with a very good salad and discovered an elderflower sorbet served by a very friendly person! I highly recommend

    We wanted to introduce butterflies to a 5 year old girl. Free visit, too long explanations film, walk in the greenhouse that has lots of vegetation. Yes, there are butterflies but it's messy, let's all the sides to try to put butterflies. Then it gets too hot so it appears a bit disappointed by a lack of explanations and especially lack of photos with the names of the species. Finding small greenhouse, we saw the butterfly but it unclear which and the rate is far too high for the result and the little knowledge brought by the visit.

    Great place. Not only a greenhouse with butterflies, but also an outdour gardenplace, with natural local flowers and butterflies. This place promotes a quiet and peaceful place and it's possible to do yoga sessions. Plenty of parkingspace. Recommended for all ages (if you like nature)

    Beautiful butterflies of all shapes, sizes and colours fluttering past all the time during the visit. You can see butterflies at all stages of the life cycle, fascinating to watch and absolutely mesmerising to see enormous butterflies suddenly land in easy reach in front of you, or if you are lucky, on you. Also vividly coloured little tree frogs, fish and praying mantis too. The praying mantis are separately contained and are not moving around freely in the main large butterfly enclosure that you walk through. Small gift shop if you like buying pretty butterfly themed gifts such as brooches, scarves and stationery. Lots of children's gifts to teach them about nature and insects. Separate garden area that you can walk around or sit in, benches to sit on and areas for children to run around, ideal for hide and seek. Staff are friendly and very welcoming, lots of interesting educational leaflets about nature, you could easily spend half a day here particularly if you like taking butterfly photos or just enjoy watching them. Well worth a visit.

    Nice place but good access. It holds some interesting discoveries. Children spend 1 magical moment in the middle of the butterflies go free. 1 small video at the end completes the visit. The staff is very friendly. We'd like the place more provides activities.

    The place is not very big and has a species 15aine at 1st glance but there are 40 according to the sign so we must look around because they do not fly all constantly. The climate in the greenhouse is tropical: heat and pervasive moisture. Every five minutes, a water mist is sprayed to keep the humidity to its required level. So plan to visit in the morning and bring you a mosquito-free product for the most sensitive! The tour lasts about an hour, but if you like butterflies and have a good camera, you can walk away with beautiful pictures.

    Very nice discovery! Lovely poetic and aesthetic. Attention it is very hot: prefer going in the morning. And plan to protect an anti mosquito!
