Choose your visit:
Guided tour at fixed times, independent visit or visit in the form of a tale for the youngest.
What kind of clothes and shoes to wear during the caves visit?
Provide warm clothing (fleece type) and comfortable shoes, preferably flat.
Can pregnant women, elderly people go down to the cave ?
The entire path through the caves is landscaped, marked and lit, but the elevation, the stairs and the temperature differences represent additional physical effort compared to a simple walk outside. It is up to everyone to judge their ability based on their physical condition, knowing that the first part remains very accessible.
The 2nd part of the circuit is the most physical.
Are there many stairs in the Caves?
- The tour of the caves is divided into 2 parts (see the sectional plan):
- Part 1: the 800-meter-long upper gallery corresponds to an elevation gain of approximately 5 floors to descend gradually. It has several stops to take advantage of the premises.
- Part 2: The large room and the old siphon which leads to the belvedere overlooking the Cerdon’s valley and its vineyard.
- This second section extends the visit circuit by around 400 meters with an additional elevation equivalent to approximately 5 floors. After a break on the belvedere to admire the Cerdon’s valley, the ascent takes place at your own rhythm to the reception.
