A blend of history and geology awaits you at the Troglodyte caves of Villecroze. These caves were formed 7 million years ago by the calcification of plants and mosses by a huge waterfall. Most of the part around the caves earlier belonged to the Benedictine monks. The caves are studded with dense vegetation. A large variety of flora can be seen near the caves. This includes cedar, oak, cherry, magnolia, olive, palm, pine, and many more. There is a waterfall of 35 meters height over the caves. The entire area presents a panoramic picture that you will remember for a lifetime.

Here's the deal with the caves at Villecroze - they were really nice to see and learn about, with some truly amazing geological features (especially the columns). The guides were knowledgeable and sincere about sharing their understanding of the caves with the tour. It is also cool inside which is nice on hot days. Because the caves were also a bit of a fort it is a neat combination of history and geology. If in area for sure with checking out.
It’s a quite large and beautiful park. One part is just the open areas with benches and trees and playground. Another part is a tall and gorgeous waterfall. Next to that are the caves. It will take maybe 2 hours to see it, but it is a very beautiful park
The caves of Villecroze are carved into the side of a sheer limestone cliff. A grotto formed by hundreds of thousands of years of water flowing over porous rock. The continuous water created tufa rock-hard calcium carbonate deposits along the cliff face. Cycles of natural erosion and deposits formed caves of smooth stone and flowing stalactites.
This place is a little gem. Beautifully maintained garden. Perfect for kids too. The waterfall is the icing.
Caves are interesting and reasonably priced, surrounded by beautiful gardens full of dragonflies. A great place to spend a morning.
