  • We really enjoyed visiting Insectopia. There was a great variety of insects. The displays have a lot of detail in both English and French. I’d highly recommend visiting while you are in the area.

  • My kids, husband and I learned a lot visiting Insectopia in a cloudy day in the area. They have quite a few insects there but what we really liked is the richness of the information linked to each...

  • 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.
  • Loved it! If you don't like insects, stay away.
