#1 of 11 in Wildlife in Pays de la Loire
At L'Ile aux Papillons, 100 different species of butterfly flit about inside a greenhouse built to mimic the colorful creatures’ natural environment. The brilliant colors of the butterflies give moving magic to the greenhouse’s lush flora and fauna. When that first flyer mistakes your shirt for a flower, you’ll be overcome with wonder. The butterflies' controlled environment provides them with the safety they need to multiply, so you can observe their life cycle in all its stages.

    Had heard us of this attraction, time not being there so we went for the "Butterfly Island. In a tropical greenhouse, with lush vegetation, go for a Visual Discovery or hundreds of butterflies twirl plants plants, sometimes even they have about you. We spent more than an hour to contemplate, and capture these beautiful insects. We loved

    Children are not welcome. The tariff is excessive and the visit is announced 1 hour but rather corresponds to 40minutes even taking his time.

    On a rainy day, my friend and I went to the greenhouse to discover the island butterfly. What do beautiful pictures, and better to discover the universe of these animals. On the other hand, a lot of people at this time of the year in the aisles... which sometimes prevents to approach some butterflies. It would be better to regulate the number of people at the entrance! Similarly, I had the impression to see always the same spaces of butterflies... I expected more diversity in a place so famous I recommend going with a high light (warm temperatures as in all greenhouses) excessive rate for a very quick visit... € 2/3 less would be more reasonable! but to do it once in his life :)

    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.
