Most places in the Vezere and Dordogne valleys focus (for caves at least) on pre history and cave art and dwellers. Grand Roc, though, shows a completely different set of views in that it displays magnificent stalactites and stalagmites. We have seen a number of...More

There is always the danger that if you've seen one cave with stalactites you've seen them all. Not having visited any similar caves I found it incredible. Tour guide was very helpful and fluent n both French and English. Recommended.

There are two separate sites: the cave and the pre-history site. You can do just one or both with a combined ticket. We did both. We started with the cave, which was not large, but had some amazing features. Tour was mainly in French, but...More

lots of small stalegmites and stalegtites as you walk through a small (watch your head) cave. tour guide in spoke English and French which doubled the length of time inside. It was small and boring and over priced.

Very interesting cave, not formed like so many others with a river or other large water flow, but rather the steady drip drip of water into an open space. Some very interesting takes on the usual stalactite / stalagmite story, and one massive piece which...More

The cave features stalagmites and stalactites. The tour was fascinating, even if it is not feature the largest cave in the region. The guide was informative and pointed out a number of unique features. Admittedly, I was interested in Cro-magnon sites, but my wife, a...More

Stalagmites stalagtites Boring boring boring and you have to pay to get told that the rock you are looking at is called "the Virgin Mary " or "dumbo" . Lovely bit of cliff outside though.
