  • Ben don't waste your time and jump on the opportunity. It's a very nice place, the team is passionate and knows how to transmit his enthusiasm. The place is small, but the occupants are at their ease. Some games won't let you ice ;)

  • the negative: expensive entrance fee to the site. But it has allowed to know the insects (which those of Fort Boyard, the show), observe their attitudes. Quiz for kids, to get them interested even more. The owners are available for more information. I still find that lack of insect species (many stick insects and beetles). The Butterfly House is soothing.

  • Loved it! If you don't like insects, stay away.
  • 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.
  • Pleasant family visit. Suitable for young kids. Managers are available and very welcoming. The Butterfly House is really very pretty and the quiz for children is well shot. We had a very good time.

  • I'm not agree with the previous review. The place is small, but there are plenty of different insects see for the area of the locations and levels Butterfly it's really beautiful to see and skimpy for the size of the greenhouse. I recommend, because enter it is not very expensive.
