Questions sur les Grottes
  • Can we visit the caves alone ?

    You can opt for a self-guided tour (reserved for groups of less than 8 people). Children are the responsibility of parents or carers. It is forbidden to leave the main path and touch the concretions. Download the audio guide to your phone

  • 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.

  • Why a 2-part visit?

      • The main part corresponds to the concreted gallery and the path constitutes a loop with departure and arrival at the reception of the site. For people ready for an additional ascent effort, it is possible, at the end of the upper gallery overlooking the large room, to continue independently to the belvedere. This overlooks the Cerdon’s valley and its vineyards.
      • This second part with a higher elevation and therefore on the initiative of each and own rhythm.
