This attraction is owned by a young couple who bought it a couple of years ago. They are a nice couple who have to be admired for taking on this place. Their vision is to preserve the past and how "Troglodyte" living used to be....More

Hello Roger, thank you for taking the time to give your opinion on your visit. As I recall from your visit, we had a chat together at the end of your tour and I explained to you why there are no "notice boards". It is...More

A visit to learn more about how the Troglodytes lived was high on my list of things to do and I was certainly not disappointed by this one. The owners have achived a great balance of turning it into a very interesting place to walk...More

We returned this year after being so impressed by last year's tour. The hosts live there and run it themselves, they are multi-lingual and happy to chat about their labour of love. The place itself is mesmerising, you can stand back and imagine life hundreds...More

This is quite a large area of above ground and under ground historical viewing. It's lovely the way the current owners are developing the animal small holding in the style of the old times. Hens roam about and sheep are grazing nearby. The museum artefacts...More

Thank you so much for your kind words. I agree with you, we need some English translation as we get many visitors from the UK, USA, etc... I'm currently working on it, Google is little to no help unfortunately but I will get there eventually,...More

This was the most interesting and true to life troglodyte village we visited. The young couple are currently in the process of renovating the area and what a good job they are doing. It is easy to get the grasp of how people lived in...More

People actually lived in these houses hollowed out of tuffeau (the local stone) from the 19th century until the beginning of the 90s. They farmed so there was accommodation for animals too. The site has not been too commercialized so the authenticity is plain. Also,...More
