  • Do not drive past this troglodyte experience. Self guided tour with a detailed written information folder in French, English etc.
  • This is a fascinating place. In effect a house fortified by building it into the cliff face. The buildings have been restored and the rooms contain reconstructions and examples of the fireman's that would have been seen at its peak. These rooms show how the kitchens, reception and dining rooms, armoury and store rooms would have looked, and for those with a strong stomach, there is the dungeon complete with the equipment for 'enhanced interrogation' or torture.
  • Unique, informative, beautiful, a total learning experience. Well wiorth a visit at any time
  • Amazing place. I highly recommend. It's very unique and different languages are catered for. Some larger attractions in France could learn from it. A lot of stairs for older people.
  • It has a lot more to show than meets the eye. A visit is well worth your time. Very detailed interior with lots of surprises.
