  • The cave is well known in the region. We have recommended it and we are not disappointed with the visit. The environment around is really very beautiful also.

  • Visit the Aven to the top in the footsteps of a guide informed and funny. 700 markets drove us to marvel in the wonder of nature, so that can not see the time passing. A quick tour of the superb Museum, which takes more time to discover these treasures. A remake for better appreciate this site.

  • This is a most impressive place and well worth a visit. Our guide was very knowledgeable. Finding a space to park the car during August can be a little time-consuming.
  • A must see. A majestic visit in an incredible cave.
  • Great sites really good staff.
  • A grand spectacle of geological features. (These caves were never inhabited.)
  • Site very well highlighted and is expected to grow in the years future... Warm welcome and very professional guide. The aven is really great... The prehistoric Museum is really interesting... My son 4 years and a half was blown away. Car park shaded well thought with picnic tables... a very good point
