  • A beautiful, magical place where we take full eyes! Kids don't know where to look! You learn a lot about butterflies

  • We visited this place with our 2 children and 5 years. They enjoyed the visit and see so many butterflies. They also enjoyed feeding the fish.

  • Past the entry lock we arrive in a greenhouse with exotic trees where fly freely different varieties of butterflies. Some sleep, others close to you... All these colors is beautiful. We attended the slide show explaining the birth of a butterfly... He must see it to believe... If our explorers at the beginning of the century had been provided with the technology we have today it would enjoy... Very informative for children and for adults. DO and redo

  • 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 ;)
