Situated just outside Les Eyzies (& right next door to Grand Roc) this is a relatively small site. Quite interesting but not quite to the standard of some other sites in the area. Each visitor is given headphones & a tablet & these give information...More

Such an important prehistoric site but there was minimal interpretive material present on site so we just looked and soaked in the location.

We paid a supplement for Laugerie when touring Grottes du Gran Roc. It actually proved to be our favorite part of the visit. The signage was excellent and it provided us with a much better understanding of the life of Cro-magnon. The site is stunning....More

This is a double site covering the Grotte du Grand Roc and the prehistoric dwellings of Laugerie-Basse. In the Grotte du Roc there are fascinating examples of stalagtites and stalagmites and some beautiful examples of crystalline formations.

Interesting take on how prehistoric man may have lived. This part of the visit started with an interesting 3D video, explaining in some detail what you were about to see in Laugerie Basse, which certainly helped make it more interesting. Only worth visiting if you...More

The landscape of this prehistoric site, and especially the local guide giving all the informations about heating the water, and make the huts warm, also about hunting and la cuisine de la prehistoire, made the visit unforgettable!

A very typical french restaurant with limited menus but very friendly and welcoming. Disliked having to go to a separate building to use the toilets. Difficult access for the disabled.
