Grotte de Villars – Le Cluzeau

Cave painting in the Grotte de Villars


Grotte de VillarsAbout an hour south of La Croix Spa on the road towards Brantome, at Le Cluzeau is the Grotte De villars – a charming prehistoric cave complex with paintings, stalactites and even claw-marks of prehistoric bears! Quieter and more accessible than the famous caves at Lascaux, a visit to the Grotte de Villars makes a great afternoon’s expedition that an easily be mixed with a visit to Brantome with lunch. Set in charming woodland that also has picnic facilities.
