What a lovely surprise to find butterflies, birds and fish in this amazing recreation of a tropical rain forest. The joy of seeing a butterflies first flight and exotic species of birds and butterflies close up. A must on a visit to Honfleur

“A glimpse of haven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

A perfect combination of tropical plants, flitting butterflies and exotic birds. Thinking back to my visit to the gorgeous Papiliorama, I believe that Naturospace gives slightly more natural impression of the real tropical forest. Numerous butterflies were absolutely amazing. The entrance for an adult was 8,30 EUR. At the entrance there is a lovely souvenir shop.
To sum it up a place definitely worthy of a visit, however small children (below school age) should be totally banned from entering Naturospace or better looked after by their parents. It was heart-breaking to see them hunting tiny chicks down or doing their best trying to touch butterflies.

“Butterflies everywhere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Spent a great moment here looking at all the different butterflies fluttering about amongst the flowers, bushes and trees.

Don't forget to also look at the ground and behind the plants as there are little birds that hid there.

Yes you can be in and out in 15 minutes if you rush through it but I'd advise you to spend a lot longer just taking it all in and watching them all.

“Beautiful butterflies ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Visited when in Honfleur with my husband and one year old daughter. She loved the butterflies and was captivated by them fluttering around. Well worth a visit. Can definitely recommend for small children (although be aware there is a pond area with fish in it before letting them run off alone!). Also a great destination if you want to take some stunning photos of beautiful butterflies.
Note, it is warm and humid inside so be prepared dress wise!!

“Very good butterfly experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

...thousands of them in a small tropical space. Many are huge and it's quite an experience having so many wonderful butterflies flutter by. You can spend as long as you like there and photographers in particular will love the opportunities that the gardens present. There are some tropical birds, including chicks if you take the time to search them out. A very good option for kids of all ages.
