Passed this place on the road elsewhere but what a treat when we visited. A wonderful example of cave/rock dwelling that has evolved through the ages. Brilliant rooms, furniture, armour and 'soundtrack' to life playing throughout.

This is a most amazing and impressive place - a house in the caves fully furnished dating back to the year whenever.... a long long time ago. It's a long climb up and there are various levels and rooms, each one being as breathtaking as the one before! Heavy furniture, bed chambers, huge open fires and views to die for.,... More

Wasn't looking forward to it a castle in rock but glad I was talked into it. This is a amazing place which as you go into it gets bigger and bigger . Well worth a visit if you are in the area , it has all the furniture and bits and bobs still in the rooms and feels realistic.

We had picked up a leaflet about this attraction and stopped off as we were passing. It is a climb to reach the house and there are several steep staircases, so not advisable if you have mobility issues. The house looks small from the front but inside there are lots of rooms full of interesting furniture and other items of... More

This old castle is impressive and different from other castles as it's built in a rocky cliff. Most similar dwellings are perched on a hill or on a cliff but this one is in the cliff. There were several like that one in that part of France but we were told that it was the only one 'surviving'. It still... More

What a find! A fort built into the hillside full of interesting artefacts. A guide book was provided in English and the rooms were amazing. The kids loved finding out how people lived and the views were amazing. Definitely worth the €25 for 2 adults and 2 children entrance fee. Definitely recommended.

Just amazing how its built into a cave, loads of bits to look at and torture exhibition was loved by my husband and my 8year old! If have spare hour and a... More

The house is quite interesting for several reasons. First it's a troglodyte building making it quite unique, especially for a manor. The whole architecture is really amazing. Secondly this house is furnished with antiques, mostly local. It traces the history of the region. Third the torture exhibition is really cool and exciting.

Really enjoyed our visit! Very interesting, and the comprehensive English booklet that they loan you is chock full of information. As for the torture exhibit, it's difficult but eye opening in its breadth.The dark side of human ingenuity. We arrived near the end of the day and spent about an hour here, maybe a bit more.

Restoration efforts are greatly appreciated. This site is well worth a visit. Many steps but lots of resting areas between flights. Safe handrails every where on site. Translation folder was provided.
