We got exactly what we expected - a huge venue full of lots of wonderful butterflies and some other wildlife (mainly birds). Yes, it was a little expensive, but the family spent well over an hour in the venue and came out very happy with...More

Just one big tourist trap. Only one tiny greenhouse filled with (nice) butterflies, a tiny pond with 10 koi's...and that's about it. 25 euros for 2 adults, 1 kiddie (4 years) and a 20min during visit? No thank you. Rent a bike and take your...More

We came upon this little gem when we were touring in the Vendee. It is a marvellous place to fill an hour or more. When we first saw it in the middle of a small industrial estate we wondered what we had come to. However,...More

Tropical environment, unsurprisingly full of glorious butterflies. Explanations in both French and English, great for our 8 year old to be independent during our visit.

Love place to visit and very interesting too but if travelling more that 30 minutes would suggest you make it part of a day out as it won't take you long to go round.

This was the first place I wanted to see in the area and I wasn't disappointed. Beautiful butterflies flitting around and the kids enjoyed feeding the carp. Very interesting and colourful and the most beautiful planting with beautiful scents. If they had been selling the...More

We enjoyed this attraction as there were lots of species of butterfly and you could wander around for really as long as you wanted. You could also see all stages of the life cycle too. The site isn't too big, but I suppose butterflies don't...More

A butterfly house situated in the middle of an industrial estate seems a bit strange. Luckily, there is a butterfly kite flying overhead to assist in finding it. We went on a day when the sun wasn't shining and found that a large number of...More
