  • brilliant! Family experience is just great! Children are even to their advantages and take revenge on the parents! Unforgettable visit from another angle!! And the guide... what to say... c the cherry on the cake! But the big cherry! A real passion, pedagogue and besides he is funny! We come back as the children are 14 years old for the zip line! In conclusion: to make eyes firm but the front lit!

  • Superb visit, a guide (from this day at 3:30 p.m. in French) who mixed quality information embellished with humor that made the visit as playful as possible: congratulations to him and to the whole team that manages this sublime site!!

  • Totally fascinating although would be worth getting headphones as the guide is only in French. Luckily we had a brilliant translator in the group! Archery and visiting the hole was fab. Cafe and shop were worth a visit too.
  • Beautiful cave which you can reach by descending over no less than 700 steps! Inside a magic and ancient world awaits you where stalagmites grow over thousands of years in the immense chambers formed by the river Ceze. At the end of the tour. (that takes about an hour) there's a musical surprise for you in last chamber...
