Hotel close to the caves of the Dordogne

Let's head for the caves of the Dordogne!

The Dordogne is peppered with prehistoric caves which were discovered towards the end of the 19th century and attract up to a million visitors per year today. The most famous of these include the Lascaux cave, the Proumeyssac cave, which boasts the largest cavern in the Périgord, the Villars cave with its giant stalagmites and the caves at Maxange with their unique wealth of rare concretions. The 4-star hotel Les Glycines in Les Eyzies is the ideal starting point for discovering these vestiges of the past with their unique architecture.
