Le Mystere des Faluns - Les Perrieres reviews
Definitely the best educative cave place to go to in the region. The place is amazing. Beautiful. And the scenography is amazing, peaceful, you could believe you were in the sea 10 millions years... more »
I wasn't expecting anything surfside from this. I've been to lots of caves over the years. It was raining and this was a good indoor activity. However we were very impressed with the caves. Truly... more »
Amazing place! We arrived quite late (90 minutes before closing) but still had plenty of time to visit the site. It was very interesting to see how these caves came about and all the art installations that are now in place. Well catered to the non-French speaking tourist. Friendly staff and ample parking space. I would advise to bring a jumper or something else warm as the temperature down in the caves is about 12°C year round which is quite a shock if it's 30°C outside!
Much better than expected. We visited with our 6 and 7 year old. They had an English translation of the information sheet and a little puzzle also in English for the kids to do as they went around. The use of projectors sounds and art installations worked really well in the setting. My little girl did get a bit spooked but she is overly sensitive. I would definitely recommend it for kids and adults.
