Even though the guide speaks only French and we didn’t understand a word of it (or very few) the English leaflet is a help, however this jaw dropping experience needs no translation. If you are in the area don’t miss this.

Family trip out with our kids of 6 and 3. They enjoyed the furnicular railway, which is only a short ride although tightly packed. The caves are spectacular and the light projections are well done. There is (as you would expect) quite a bit of...More

A must see in the area. Mind boggling cave in which the Notre Dame cathedral fits. Amazing stalagmites that have been building for 4 million years, among which the highest in the world with 25 meters.

This is as much of an interesting visit as it is beautiful. You can always pretty much guess how a cave, or an “aven” in this case, looks like but what they did with the lights and story telling is quite fascinating. The Aven Armand...More

Somewhat special because there is only one big open space, the ‘aven’, but it is really impressive. The kids loved it.

We went here on recommendations from our reps on the camp. It is a bit of a trek from the surrounding big towns on quite mountainous roads. But the caves were interesting. It’s more of one massive big cave with lots of stalagmites all light...More

Visited the caves as part of our coach tour of hidden France. Found them to be really interesting with some stunning stalegmites and stalegtite. Our guided tour of the caves was also very good. Plenty of opportunities to take photos. Well worth the visit.
