This place is great. You walk around a well planned route taking in the stories and atmosphere. There are lots of interesting details eg how they fed prisoners in the dungeon and avoided any human contact. my son loved it. There was also a very gory section on torture with translations of all the information in 4 languages. Highly recommended... More

This attraction shows how people lived from prehistory through the renaissance. I found it fascinating. The fires were roaring in the hearths. Kitchen aromas and sounds helped place you in the 1600s. Above the fortified mansion were the cliff dwellings from prehistory. Great countryside vistas from the top levels. Bring your camera and good walking shoes. Allow several hours. There... More

A castle built into the cliff. We started early to avoid the cues if you keep your receipt(s) and visit other attractions listed in the booklet you will eventually receive a discount entry. Well worth a visit quite interesting.

France was having a heat wave when we visited and we were grateful to visit a house built in the rock face. The cost is very reasonable. The house is amazing, looks like a house literally stuck to the rock - the walls were built away from the rock and once inside you could see that the back walls of... More

This was an amazing experience, a castle built into the rocks where the caveman used to live. it was also well furnished with furniture from different periods and an exhibition of torture machines. Well worth the money, enjoyed it very much

Wonderful the way that they let you roam through the house. It is structured, you do follow a path, but don't really feel like it.They have it set up nicely to show the way people lived. Great views from the top. The creepy part comes in with the torture displays. I thought I knew most of them with this age.... More

Loved the way they've set this up and really feels lived in even down to having real fires burning in both the hearths. Really informative and imaginative. Wish more places made it like this. Totally give it 5 stars and with the money

We have twice taken visitors here as it is a really interesting experience, not like anywhere we had been before. Everything is well presented to make for an informative and enjoyable visit. it is very easy to imagine how people lived here through the ages.

This fortified chateau-falaise is well-worth visiting,along with the "cave city" of La Roque St-Christophe nearby. Whilst the walk through (and up!) the house gives you a good idea of how resourceful and tough its occupants had to be over the last 700 years, I found the information on how people used the caves before the present house was built even...

My entire family loved this large home carved from the rock face. I had seen a description that this was like a tree-house with torture devices and it was spot on! From the moment we drove up the valley and spotted it, we were impressed with the beauty and wonder of it. From the prehistoric cave dwellings that preceded it,... More
