Loved these caves very much as they were very natural compared to a lot of grottes. There are a lot of wet steep stairs up and down, that could be a big challenge to the infirm. We are in our mid sixties and we were...More

This cave unlike a lot of others doesn't seem as well advertised or quite as commercialised as some, but oh boy! What a hidden gem. The Grotte itself is so pretty, and not as tall as some so you could get good views of all...More

Thank you so much for your comment! Our cave is definitely a gem of Ardeche region. It has got so many different concretions and the variety of colours. We accept the fact that we have got 250 stairs. Whenever we see the people that might...More

This cave was fascinating! Go--no matter what your nationality because they have the tour in your language on a handheld audio tour. Very simple to navigate--the guide lectures in French, I had an English device. When the guide stops there is a sign telling you...More

It is really a wonderful and mesmarising place to visit. It is the only "grotte" where you are very close the rocks and you feel like an explorer yourself. Like all these places, you should not be afraid of heights!!! It's a breathtaking place... if...More

Despite being a touristy destination, it's still very much worth it to visit this cavern. They've gone to great lengths to make this accessible but be prepared for many stairs and much walking. The formations and lighting make this worth the effort to visit. Cheers!More

As if the landscape above ground it the Ardeche isn't spectacular enough, a visit to the Madeleine Caves shows you it's pretty spectacular beneath ground too. We visited on an incredibly hot day and it was rather nice to go somewhere a bit cooler. You...More
