“The largest crystalline grotto in the region with a stunning array of formations. There is a basket to descend into the cavity for the adventurous or a tunnel entrance for a more gentle approach. It is truly stunning and only a 35 minute drive away. Reserve in advance especially if you want to descend in the basket!”

Restaurant
“This is my absolute favourite! The restaurant serves delicious meals either inside or on their deck. The prize is to sit on their deck on the riverside and watch the wonderful flow of water. This is where the Vezere and the Dordogne rivers meet.”

“C'est la vraie grotte d'origine, unique en son genre, avec un petit train qui vous emmène sur 1,5 km sous la terre jusqu'à une salle où se trouvent gravés une centaine de mammouths, ce qui ne se voit dans aucune autre grotte connue.
