Maison des Papillons (Musée dany-Lartigue)

At the end of an alley that is typically st.tropez-esque, there is a door which opens onto a fabulous collection of butterflies (more than 4500) which the family of the photographer J.-H. Lartigue vested in the house, His son Dany, a painter and entomologist put together his collection of species from around the world, presenting them in some really attractive displays. The artistic flair in the displays certainly seems uncharacteristic of an entomologist, and certainly takes the upper hand.
