OTI PyMed – Isabelle Berga

The Discovery Farm,

For the little ones, the visit to the Discovery Farm, “the breeding of yesteryear”, is a great opportunity to observe, approach, pet and feed the farm animals with the greatest respect.
You will certainly spend an exceptional day with your family in a real conservatory which contributes to the knowledge of species, some of which are endangered, and of biodiversity.

The Tropic of the Butterfly, Elne

Here, you are in a natural environment with hundreds of butterflies in total freedom. In this biotope, the temperature, the humidity and the light see hundreds of butterflies from Asia and Latin America hatch, as well as many species of plants. Outside, the bamboos filter the light giving an air of labyrinth. Benches, ponds, arbours punctuate the course to relax and observe... it's fascinating!

Our advice to make your visit as successful as possible

  • Prefer weekends which are usually quieter;
  • Most butterflies are born between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m., these are also the coolest hours of the day;
  • The spaces are not air-conditioned, plan an outfit adapted to the outside temperature;
  • Butterflies are activated with light, so avoid dark or rainy days;
  • A family activity not to be missed: the treasure hunt for children which is offered free of charge in the outdoor garden (ask at reception).
