  • By definition this "cave" is a replica of the so-called Chauvet Cave. So far the efforts made and the comments of an enthusiast, we are quickly forgotten this lining, we believe... Outside is very well laid out, the style of this Lair don't me not pleased eyes, even though technically it's a nice vibe... We spend together an hour during which our guide offers us relevant explanations. Yet a myth, for me, comes to fall after half a dozen decades of ignorance. Our history books told us: "man caves", isn't? Nay, it was the bears who were squatting these holes wet and dark, 36 000 years ago man lived "out"... Enjoy...

  • They are wonderful paintings. The Group of lionesses hunting is extraordinary. It's funny to think that these paintings which are probably quite older than Altamira and Lascaux surpasses them. Though in that each can have their opinion because there is nothing written tastes. Notice to get there is very little signage on the roads, so it's good to not rely on what the French do so well and is alert you in from the highway exits the area offers tourist. Do you with a road map, or use the GPS. Second notice, do not want it to call by the name of one of its discoverers "Chauvet". You won't find any indication this name. Approach and the signs refer to les Gorgues d' Ardèche. I went a day during the week of the month of December and not had that book. Had so little people that just not have group to enter. Entries are guided and the girl who touched me to my expanded to about an hour long. The audioguide in Spanish is certainly rather recommand in terms of explanation, more literature than content. As it is a will the temperature inside does not suffer variations with respect to the outside which occurs in natural or not smell musty. So I don't think you'll have neither cold nor heat. All the others you have square. And neither gives the feeling of claustrophobia at any time. The space is large and if there aren't people you can move easily. That if the lights go off smoothly as you are spending time considering that it is enough to see the paintings. If you have a good day you can eat outdoors on the terrace of the restaurant (selfservice or sandwiches). The location, in the middle of a dense forest of Oaks, is very successful and if you go with children will have free space to run. I not visited the Museum and the store has nothing more than the typical souvenirs. Obviously you can't do pictures. You must not carry any special shoes because you always walk by high artificial Hall perfectly flat the neocave flooring and railings. You can visit in half a day. Then the area there are other caves and you can enjoy Lavender is in bloom.

  • Well displayed, highly informative, a good experience for all ages. Make reservations long in advance to assure your time is well spent. Allow enough time for heavy crowds even in the off season. Exhibits were fully functional and easy to use, restaurant has good food (including some local specialties!) and service, and the cave art is phenomenal!
  • one of the best things you can do, but turn up 15 mins before your booked time
  • A must- do in Ardeche. Inspiring visit
  • Amazing experience and very well done. Everything is written in English, French, German and Spanish which is a bonus plus they have an English speaking tour everyday.
  • We visited in September and were blown away by the cave art. We were also impressed with the organization of the tours. We booked on line but didn't book an English tour so used the headsets. I think booking an English guide would be better as they seemed to impart more information. I would have liked to stay longer in the cave and have a smaller group but otherwise we were very impressed. We met people who returned the next day for another look!
