4/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web
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.

  • A family outing to do during your visit to the island. We plunge into the Sci-Fi of butterflies with magnificent species that fly around you and who will come even to land on you... Careful it's very hot in the greenhouse plan to go in the morning or when it's very hot outside...

  • A plongeont in a huge space. In the wonderful world of butterflies. These small animals fascinate me for a long time it is therefore natural that we went during our holiday in the Vendée. Butterflies are beautiful, they come to land on us and twirl above our heads. This place attracts well obviously many children and some parents are not very fussy on respect "guidelines", sometimes I got sorry for some butterflies whose wings were fired, or butterflies woke up because some do not read the information. Apart from that it was a great time!

  • A lovely moment in the middle of the plants and flowers in a tropical setting where hundreds of butterflies are free! For children and adults and the photographers also, special mention to blue rebels who do not take and never stop but are superb! A great time.. .very hot!

  • 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!
  • Nice, nothing more. It was "welcomed" by the head of the site we prescribe the agenda to set our tickets before you can picnic on a table outdoors, while we intend to visit it once finished picnic! But no, this gentleman has nothing to know, I had left 3 children 9, 8 and 6 years only 2 min to resolve tickets! There remained enough tables free for other visitors unless it bothers, I never saw that fortunately that is not it at the cinema where I worked with people who eat their macdo on our tables indoors! A time of visit is largely overestimated
