  • We chose this site for a first visit with children because there is the cave and discovery garden. The visit to the cave lasts 45 minutes: the guide was clear in his explanations and very outgoing. The garden allows you to walk at their own pace and take a break for a snack: small kids workshops come to enrich this very nice output.

  • Great caves with a guided tour which is a bit slow but probably about right if you don't have a 12 year old with you. The guide did a great job of presenting in French and English. Nice caves with cool stalactites and stalagmites. Park /garden area great too with lots of photo opportunities.
  • Beautiful cave. Very impressive. Absolutely worth a visit. Don't take young children, they get bored and start fussing, much to the annoyance of others who would like to hear the tour guide. The souvenir shop is nice. Don't bother with the restaurant... Overpriced, bland food on paper plates with plastic cutlery and very slow service.
  • Steep hills may be a challenge for the elderly. No access for pushchair or wheelchair. Very friendly staff gave tour in English and French. Information cards are given at the start in your preferred language. Awesome sights to see. My kids loved it
  • Perfect for young children. We went as a family with three children under 6 years old and had a really great day. Before the caves we walked around the garden and found out all about cro-magnon man. The cave tour was quite beautiful and impressed the 4 and 5 year old, only 45 minutes long and the ride made sure the children could see. My 2 year old is cooperative and went in the sling for a sleep. After a nice picnic the children did two organized activities, cave painting and spear throwing! Stopped for an ice cream and a coffee before a trip to the great playground. We had to drag them home!
  • Amazing prehistoric caves. Chambers, stalactites, stalagmites and rare cave art from 17000 years ago. Tour mainly in French, but with some English too. Would give it a 10 years and over rating as young kids might be bored. Great few hours on a rainy day
