I would like to properly rate this attraction but unfortunately, as has been our experience with other attractions during our recent France trip, the hours of operation are rather flexible...for the employees. We looked for the Ile Aux Papillons for quite a while as it is not easily located in the back of some industrial area. And the signage is confusing to say the least. Due to our challenging search we arrived at 6.45 pm, happy that the place was open until 7.30 pm as we learned from several locals as well as the Internet. Having visited several other butterfly conservatories we figured that 45 minutes would suffice for a visit. The first thing we spotted was a huge "FERME" sign which, even with my limited French, I knew means closed. No explanation for the early closure was posted so we went on our (less) merry way. Disappointing!
