  • This cave made a big impression on me. It seemed very strong, to stand in a cave where Cromagnon people had lived. There can be found many caves, which are physically larger, but it was the importance of people have lived here for 20,000 years ago, which seemed so strong on me. We were about eight people in the group, which visited the Grotto at the same time, and the guide told on both French and English. The cave can only be visited by up to 200 people a day to reduce the destruction of the images as Cromagnon people had painted on the walls of the cave.

  • Unique and intense moment. The guide will take in his passion for the speologie and makes you discover a wonderful and magical place. We forget the time and our worries in this wonderful cave. Thank you

  • We love the visits but we were a little disappointed because she's so tiny that a room, compared has Lacave which is much more beautiful.

  • Visit exciting, intimate without artifice, a real cave that has kept its original character. It's on a human scale, paintings are beautiful even if there are few, there is even a very rare, if you're interested in prehistory is exciting. The magic because the cave is in the background of a garden and we don't expect to discover, there is the smell, cold, moisture, isn't in a facsimile. The guide explains really well designs and if we focus a little, we can imagine 25000 years ago. Even my 6 year old son found it "great". The morning if it's not too crowded it's magic. Thanks to the guide and thanks for the welcome.

  • Tuesday, July 18, 2017 visit around noon. Intimate and exciting visit. The guide helped me to feel privileged to contemplate the traces left thousands of years ago. I was very moved to see our ancestor... artistic and technical capacity and the mystery of their meaning. I had never been touched in this way with a visit to a cave (and I did several in France as abroad). It is small but it's been a real revelation for me.

  • Disappointed, nothing really wonderful. The price is excessive and the guide's explanations are flat. During our visit we were a group of about 30 people, it's too much for a small cave. Too bad.
