We enjoyed this stop. We came during quiet time and ended up with a private tour with a wonderful, English speaking Dutch lady. She gave a wonderful tour of a unique cave. Lots of low ceilings however so if you are over 6 feet tall...More

Reviewed 20 September 2011

Although this was very interesting, it is not very extensive. Also, because the stalactites and stalagmites have been damaged by thoughtless visitors in the past, much of what you see has to be viewed through fine mesh, whilst this is understandable, we did find it...More

Full of remarkable stalagtites, stalagmites and other phenomenal rock formations. This Grotte is truly worth a visit. True, it is another cave full of rock formations, but they are all different, and this one is not to be missed!

This cave has resisted too much modernisation so is a very authentic experience. The stalagmites and stalagtights are absolutely incrediblr and our guide was very knowledgeable. Excellent.

Amazing caves and wonderful guides. Their English was superb and they were both funny and informative. Left a tip, don't know if it's the done thing but was worth it! Great trip out.

The cave is interesting and beautiful. The stalactite formations are very unusual because they don't just grow down, but create amazing patterns of delicate crystals. The tour was done in French, which was difficult for the English speakers. We were handed a sheet of paper,...More

An interesting cave with stunning stalactite and stalagmite formations and you are surrounded on every side by unique formations - even horizontal ones! Our guide Elizabeth was funny and really brought it to life in both French and English
