The Carbet Amazonien, butterfly farm VELLERON

Le Carbet Amazonien: butterfly farm

Open from 1st April to 30th November 2017, a unique, magical place extending over more 500 m2 where you can wander amongst tropical plants, surrounded by the true stars of the show – the butterflies! Free for under 4s.

In the greenhouse, visitors can witness the entire life cycle from egg to butterfly. Observe the butterflies laying their eggs and the chrysalides hatching. Moist warm heat, plants, and a flowing man made river - this place is a living encyclopaedia. Even in summer, the temperature never exceeds 29°.
44 tropical species of amazingly coloured butterflies live here. But best of all is the hatching box where, in the morning, you can witness the birth of butterflies.

On sale, outside the greenhouse are several art and craft, butterfly themed objects.

Camera recommended!

June - July - August from 10 am to 6pm
