There is nothing I can say about this place that would do it justice. It is mind blowing. You just have to visit to appreciate it grandeur and beauty. But be aware, like most things in France, they close from 12:30pm to 2:00pm

“Very well presented underground paradise”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

we went there with our friend. It was low season, only two cars on the car park. We had to wait 20 min to enter as the entry is organised with a guide. Next to the ticket desk you will find shop and bar with quite good caffe, something little to nibble and of course wine degustation corner. Not only wine. It is very good way to wait :) we didn't mind.

As we entered the cave thru short and windy tunnel we landed o the balcony with breathtaking view. The guide highlight the most important and very interesting formations. After the tour we had time free to enjoy the cave as it is huge hall and you cannot get lost. In some places interactive screen are placed. It gives more informations and more pictures in plenty of languages.

It is an educative and very interesting attraction for everyone. Easy access. You wont loose your little ones. It is safe. It is fun. I cannot wait to discover more caves in the region.
Before going there go online. Website is customer friendly and gives you all informations about this cave and associated in few languages.

“Awe Inspiring”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

A Tourist Information office recommended this attraction to us and suggested that it was better than the caves at Limousis. We didn't compare them but certainly really enjoyed our visit here, it was impressive in size and geological interest. The guide only spoke French but the idea is that you walk around with him (although that is not compulsory) and use the 'language stations' at various points. They were very well done and informative. At the end there was a short light show to classical music which added to the experience. Well worth going.

Very impressive cave of incredible dimensions. It is said that the Eiffel tower would fit in it! We did our own, unguided, tour, facilitated by stations where you can get explanations in six languages..

“Wonderful Cave”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

Our family loved this cave and Limousis as well. The audio tour was in English and you could really take your time and linger over the sights, sounds and lights. The light show is hilarious. We loved this diversion.
