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

We really enjoyed our look round this castle. It's quite big and you can get a bit lost, but in a good way. We also really liked the immediate area just outside, it was a really nice small village with places to eat etc.

This rock shelter hewn out of the cliff was originally a prehistoric cave dwelling. It looks like a castle in the cliff and is the only one of its kind still intact. you can walk through the rooms of the house inside the cliff - they have been furnished in period furniture - there is the kitchen,grand hall, bedrooms, chapel,...

Loved this place - found it extremely interesting would be good for all ages - exhibits were very well done but the actual place built into the rock wall was incredible. Excellent visit - the torture exhibit was very graphic at the end so beware if your children can read!

We felt privileged to visit this most interesting medieval stronghold, clearly so well looked after. It was very atmospheric, with music playing in certain rooms and a real log fire! Some of the stairs are very steep for elderly folk! The room with the torture implements were not for ladies of a nervous disposition, so that was left to my... More

Interesting fortified cave/rock over hanging. Well organised with lots of little touches like music in various rooms to create the mode of the time; period furniture etc. Worth the trip.

Didn't know about this place until I picked up a leaflet at the hotel, but decided to go have a look and was glad I did. Very well presented, very interesting, and just a little but different from the other attractions in the region.
