Discover medieval caves and their historical uses at La Vallee Troglodytique des Goupillieres. These caves feature three farms dug into the stone with wells, bakers' ovens, cattle sheds, a grain silo, and an underground refuge. Let your children's imaginations run free with reproductions of a cabin, fortress, and a witch’s house. Then go inside the enclosed garden filled with plants to make a butterfly's paradise. Dine at The Troglodyte Gourmand serving tartines, pancakes, drinks, and homemade ice cream. Guided tours are only in French, but printed booklets in English describe the caves that were dug out by peasant farmers and builders during the Middle Ages.

  • This place is full of history, unfortunately it was closed during our visit, but we could see a piece of this village, and we will be back to see more closely

  • Visit carried out in October with a person in a wheelchair. We were able to enjoy the site almost alone (day of week in October, so no big crowds). Very informative site, and visit original and enjoyable. Thank you for this discovery.
