Really impressive caves and well organised tour (only in French but they do give you a card with an overview in English). The sound and light show at the end was unexpected and magnificent

I had just enough time after my Lastours castle exploration to get to the caves here before they closed, so I went for it. It's actually a pretty good cave, with some good stalactite and stalagmite formations. Our tour wasn't advertised as being in English,...More

Limousis cave may not be as big as that of Cabrespine, but it is certainly worth visiting. The concretions of aragonite it displays are an incredible sight. They are like very fine stalactites going in all directions. In this cave they look like feathers. Unforgettable.

We chose to visit these caves on a day when the weather wasn't so good. We weren't disappointed! There was a lot to see - lots of different 'rooms' and some lakes too. These are probably the most impressive caves that we've been to. Good...More

We just turned up at the advertised time and were able to join a group of about 30. Not sure in peak season though - might be worth checking.
