“More of a lunch venue than an attraction in its own right”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

They do a reasonable priced buffet lunch and what exhibits are there are very attractive. The place was jam packed with French people when we were there - all smoking and looking stylishly bohemian which was interesting in itself.

Stunning orchids of every colour an shape. Really beautiful flowers.
Only a small place and very cheap, but well worth a good look.

“Disappointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

I wanted to see this attraction because of the butterflies. We saw none. This is an orchard farm with beautiful orchids but not a huge amount of variety. They say it's a butterfly farm, too, because orchids attract butterflies and perhaps one will fly by. That didn't happen in our case and I was really disappointed. We were in and out of this attraction in 10 minutes. Would skip it unless you want to see row after row of orchids.

“Beautiful colors and varieties”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

Plenty of orchid varieties and large amounts of butterflies to satisfy the savviest admirer. Rows and rows of well planned and cared for orchids for the young and the young at heart to be in awe and enjoy, bunches of colorful beauties very well distributed in the large farm. It was a delight to see the butterflies happily flying and showing off their colors.
There is also an area for eating and a well stocked store for souvenirs.
