Questions sur les Grottes
  • 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.
    • Can we take a stroller in the caves ?

      No because of the stairs! Please note that we provide baby carriers for free.

    • Can we take photos in the caves ?

      • Photos are authorized but without flash or tripod so as not to disturb other visitors. The use of photos on the web cannot be done without the authorization of the Caves of Cerdon. Videos are prohibited.
