In surroundings typical of Saint-Tropez, you can enjoy a fabulous collection of all the daytime species of butterflies in France collected by Dany Lartigue over several decades, as well as a collection of exotic butterflies. Over 35,000 specimens are included, some of which were endangered and now protected, as well as little known varieties or even extremely rare specimens such as the Black Apollo of Mercantour.
