    • Maxange Caves, discovered in August 2000 at Le Buisson de Cadouin (Dordogne -Périgord).

      The tour of the caves is very easy, due to the fact that there are no abrupt variations in level.
      The unique concentration of calcite formations makes the site the only one of its kind in the world.

      The cave lighting has been done with the utmost care, and the most up-to-date techniques have been used to create a spectacular display that brings out the magical effect of light playing on the crystallizations.

      Ample car parking has been provided, a children’s play-area, as well as a reception centre with bar and gift shop.

    This particular day was so hot that a nice, cool set of caves seemed the best idea for our large family group. There are so many cave sites to choose from in this general area, but this one was only...
