  • I went 2 times to the Aven, and both times have been a pure pleasure. It's cool, plan a good sweater! The price is very reasonable, friendly guides (trying to make good jokes often!). The Grand Finale is at the bottom of the cave with a lavish show. Recommend!

  • The visit is divided into 2 sites: visit the aven that allowed us to discover wonderful rooms because of their vastness and the beauty of the work of water. At the same time the course is particularly well equipped, so very accessible despite the impressive number of markets (I leave you the surprise!). We were also accompanied by a guide to passionate and exciting with lots of humor. Outside, a very nice and very rich Museum. The children now have much chance to have such a tool available! (Adults too!). An unforgettable visit!... Finally, thank you for the welcome!

  • 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
