This is a great little tourist attraction a little off the beaten track. I agree with others that the French tour is much more in depth but I don’t feel that we lacked any knowledge after using the prompt sheet in English. If the weather...More

We visited in April. Good visitor centre with coffee and ice cream while we waited for the guided tour. There was information in English. The guide spoke in French but could answer our questions. Definitely worth a visit.
