A very impressive cave and worth a visit if you are in the area. You can drive through on the road or park and take a walk through the main passage.

They do give you a translation sheet but it definitely misses a few things. Just something to be aware of as it wasn't clear on their website. Despite this we enjoyed the visit through the cave and seeing all the pieces of history that have been discovered there.
We didn't go inside the grotte as the children with us are too young. But everyone enjoyed the picnic area, the river, the mammoth, and watching bungee jumping from above the cave. The café is good and in a nice setting but quite expensive. Good parking and public toilets.
