Caves are plentiful in the Dordogne but this one is really exceptional. Spend the money (€17) to go down in the basket! It is fantastic!!!

This is an incredible adventure deep into underground that includes a 1 km ride in a boat. First you can walk down or take an elevator into this vast open crevasse. After that it’s not really handicap accessible but just going that deep and still...More

Seems a little way of the path but worth it. Pretty spectacular. Easy parking. Reasonable costs and seemed well organised. Other reviews sum it up well. The toilets were the old style "flush and runs".

Well worth a visit. For English guests an audio guide is provided. The light show within the cave was spectacular and the cave itself is breathtaking.

Great hour spent in this cave. Very accessible and well done tour. You see and learn a lot on this small (comparing to bigger multiple caves you can visit in this area) but surprising cave.
