These cliffs have provided shelter for people in peril since the Norman invasion, and in WWII for the French resistance. One woman lived here until only a few years ago. Interesting to imagine seeking safety here.

This is a great spot when sightseeing to stop, have a picnic, and a walk in the forest. It is a well-preserved Trogolodyte village. It isn't well known but is very close to the Maison Forte Reignac which you can see in the same afternoon.

I wouldn’t plan your whole day around here but very interesting, great views, helpful staff. We traveled about an hour&a 1/2 to get to there to be there for just over an hour. Nice journey to and from Rocamadour.

Great little spot. Very informative with signs throughout plus a returnable guidebook. Not great on a rainy day- it's mostly outside and the path gets slippery when wet. I'm sure it's lovely on a nice day. Snacks and a pleasant restroom near the ticket counter.

Interesting collection of caves looking out over the river Vezere which have been occupied by Troglodytes since Neolithic times . A beautiful spot to spend a few hours exploring the history and letting the imagination run wild. Those cave-men knew a thing or two -...More

Hello, I think it would probably be difficult.. The site is on a hill and there is lots of uneven ground and various steps. Might be worth emailing them to check. Sorry I can't be more help.
