    Welcome to farm a bit rough at first. made us wait time to begin the tour in the Park of the property, the view of the cliff and the sea is breathtaking and the goat is grazing the grass quietly. The visit is made by the master of the House a humorous peasant sometimes second degree but funny still, the explanations are very interesting and image of everyday life example of r. The hygiene is maintained in this farm given that the cheese product is raw milk it is forbidden to touch the animals and shoes are disinfected a l enter the goat. Tour begins so by the above we learn many thing then we spend in the garden or l told all is that to know about the goat and finally cheese. the tour ends with a tasting of cheese fresh and from a sewing white wine. A passage to the shop force before crossing out, ice to goat milk, goat milk, fresh cheese there is for everyone, personally raspberry ice to goat milk is very good. That if you want to spend a small hours and a half to learn interesting things are going to happen is not excessive. PS: for the youngest not obvious to listen to someone talk for an hour and a half.

    Very interesting tour with a passionate but guide not to do with children under 8 years old. Visit too expensive, we're looking for the cheese at the tasting... the owner is not very cheerful.

    The owner is a very friendly, always to make jokes while explaining man seriously every step of its production (from grass to cheese). It is pleasant to listen to and is doing well in English! We feel at home the passion for the job. The products are great!
