Thank you very much for your message and note. Best Regard.
These caves are large, impressive and well organised to cope with large numbers of visitors. The caverns are full of speleological features, making for very interesting viewing.

This is the most impressive cave I have ever seen. So many, such beautiful formations. Be aware that the trip advisor map currently locates this cave south of Corneilla, however it is actually north of the town, closer to Villefranche. The cave name on the...More
We went to this cave (grande) and we really liked it. It is a really big cave and I never seen this big cave in France. We missed the light show, but we did hear the (loud) music throughout the tour. For me this was...More

We went there in early July this year. The caves are well worth a visit and are amazing value for money. There are good walkways throughout, but bear in mind that there are a lot of stairs, so not suitable for those with limited mobility....More
