  • Many of the specimens. Kids love. Small game to open the trunk and quiz during the visit to maintain the attention. Not so bad

  • Came here after visiting the caves. Such a lovely place to visit whether you're a couple or with kids. English couple run this and are so welcoming and informative. Always willing to answer questions ...  more »
  • Insectopia is a good option to wait between the ticket purchase and time of visit to the chasm of Padirac. The owners at the entrance are very friendly, but the real interest is quite limited.

  • My family and I just returned from a beautiful trip driving around the South of France. We found Insectopia by accident really and we were met with a warm welcome. Its run by a husband and wife team, who one day packed their bags and moved to France to buy and own a failing business 'Insectopia', it was their adventure and project and a total punt! Its previous reputation was very poor and they had a lot of work to do. What I witnessed was a good and loving couple trying their hardest to make a flagging business successful, and they were doing a good job when I saw them. They were honest and passionate about their little enterprise and we all really enjoyed standing in the Butterfly sanctuary and having the most beautiful specimens flying all around you. We even witnessed a new tropical butterfly emerging from its chrysalis, I would have easily of paid to see that. They are making lots of new changes and really trying their best to make a go of things. They both really won me and my family over and I feel passionate to inform the rest of the world about this new little enterprise which is in need of positive support and encouragement. Aaron and Co.

  • As beneficiary of the passtime guide, impossible to explain to the cashier we had right to free entry for an admission fees at the highest rate. It gave us 50% on the duty of the child fare. €6.50 for a few unfortunate insects to see it is a scam.
