This tour starts from the Mas de roux in the direction of the Vilage de Quissac and then you have to take the direction Sauve/Saint-Hippolyte-du-Fort . You cross Saint-Hippolyte-du-fort in the direction of Ganges and then turn left to reach the village of Saint-Bauzille-de-Pontois. Everything is very well signposted, one goes up to about 260 meters of altitude to reach the entrance of the Cave des Demoiselles.​


So we arrived at this famous cave that we had heard so much about and wanted to visit to get to know it.

This experience will allow us to share it with our guests but also with our family and friends in the region who do not yet know it.

When we took our tickets and went to the starting point; our reflection was all "what a freshness" because in fact we are standing in front of the funicular that will take us to the discovery of this regional monument and there a fresh air descends towards us and it is very pleasant when we go through a period of strong heat like this summer 2019.

Here before us is this funicular, the first underground tourist funicular, built in the early 1930s and which will allow us to discover this natural cavity known all over the world, which has become a must, and explored since the middle of the 18th century.


After less than 3 minutes, you will discover:

  1. an immense natural setting whose time will have sculpted every detail

  2. a place where many explorers will have spent hours discovering these rooms



    a room called the "Cathedral" whose dimensions remain engraved in our memories with its some 52 meters high, 48 meters wide and especially a length of about 120 meters: a gigantic natural place.

  4. many rooms or water will have forged for millions of years natural sculptures in the shape so close to the real.
