  • We did the tour that is proposed for €5,90 per person, a film is first proposed that explains how the saint nectaire and history of this cheese is made, then we will in a cellar which reproduces the refining of the saint nectaire Since the real caves natural there are only 3 or 4 in Auvergne and finally we end with a piece of saint nectaire farmer tasting and a piece of slag. The guide is very friendly and really knows his stuff well, it was a good visit

  • We have taken the option for a visit (€5 90 per person)... It puts us in a room and put you an explanatory old movie... After just a little piece of storage... And you are given a piece of cheese the size of a sugar and it's over... You will see nothing else! Avoid... It got me more for my part in the shop invoice products and it not put me them in the basket, seen unfortunately too late... I totally recommend this cheese. The staff is cool and looks down on you...

  • Too expensive for an artificial visit. Interesting movie about the making of the cheese. Ridiculously artificial cave. Not worth the visit.

  • A very interesting and informative tour! Very friendly staff! And the cheese... Delicious!

  • A film that speaks more of the Auvergne in general than cheese, a fake cellar refining where you can watch 20 cheeses, tasting of 2 pieces of St nectaire about the size of a €2 coin, and it's over! It's cheap for so little.
