We stumbled upon the grottos when parking in the large lot which was filled with caravans. The waterfall caught our attention, and as we ventured closer, through the lovely little park, we made our way up to the entrance. The fee was paltry (2 or...More

The onetime inhabited caves at Villecroze are well worth a visit. Delightful vast waterfall feeding a stream that runs through the gardens, its well worth a visit. The caves aren't really suited to the disabled or very small children, but the gardens with many benches...More

Encouraged by excellent reviews, we came to visit. Outside it is beautiful: the gardens are pretty, there is a spectacular waterfall and the external appearance of staircases, openings and windows fashioned into the hillside is very impressive. Although the modern house atop it all is...More

The grottes just outside Villecroze are amazing. They are caves in the mountain side in 5 stores, and to walk up along the side of the mountain is interesting and fun. Further there is a fine park in front. Even a small playground for children...More

The Villecroze caves are split over 5 levels and about 6 different cave rooms to view. A great place to take the kids as the caves are situated within a park which also has a waterfall, beautiful gardens and a children's play are.

Well worth the visit. Need to wear sensible footware. Some steep steps. Free car park close by. Being the summer waterfall did lack flow. A walk round old village narrow slope streets also worth while. Picturesque.

As long as you are fit enough to squeeze through narrow passages and climb steps, this is well worth the visit and the 8 euros entry. The views from up there are marvellous.
