  • The place to photograph beautiful exotic butterflies living as well as their sometimes huge caterpillars. One regret: that the décor, outside plants that have their place, is not best suited to the exotic Lepidoptera evoke.

  • Extraordinary discovery as this island to butterflies. In a very large greenhouse, we had the opportunity to admire fabulous butterflies, of all sizes, colors. Mix sublime with suitable vegetation. Really pure delight. Butterflies landed several times on my arm, my shoulder and even had the opportunity to see a couple reproducing. We saw not the time spent in this place not to be missed.. .and attention out to not take a butterfly with you. As a bonus, the staff is very nice. Have learned many things that afternoon. We will return with pleasure, pleasure even.

  • It's a nice place to see butterflies and moths. Nicely laid and with good planting. It is very expensive though for a family visiting and not really sure it's worth the money.
  • Great place to see or take photos of butterflies, be warned that it's hot inside!
  • Cool place loads of butterflies
  • As soon as you walk in the door, many Butterfly welcome you and land on you. Small quails from China that cross our path, the various tracks, the varied vegetation as well as a video supplement this visit. A magical moment! Do and redo without moderation with a good camera ;)
