Grotte de Villars – Le Cluzeau

Cave painting in the Grotte de Villars


About 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.
