Discover a marvellous butterfly greenhouse in the small village of Virelles, a stone's throw from Chimay.

The setting alone makes a visit worthwhile; a large greenhouse full of tropical plants and flowers where you can admire around 30 live species of exotic butterflies.

If you are looking for an outing for you and your children, the Grange aux Papillons is a great place to have fun and learn everything there is to know about butterflies: metamorphosis, their ecosystem or language.
