  • Friendly visit with St. Nectaire tasting at the end in the shop where many products of the soils is waiting for us. The film is interesting and the mood of the guide (Benedicte) is much appreciated and makes a very nice visit

  • When one enters the House of Saint Nectaire cheese, we would expect a taste experience, at the height of our gluttony. And yet despite a very competent guide, and the screening of a film about the auvergne of good quality, the magic is not. But this does not lack a touch of madness, this staging of classic and expensive. Finally, the saint nectaire bought in the shop was disappointing compared to my cheese of island of France!

  • After watching a video on the Auvergne and its terroir, we could visit the reconstitution of a cheese cellar. At the end of the visit, free tasting of St nectaire. Excellent guide passionate and exciting. The home agent is nice. Worth a look.

  • 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...

  • Visit made in small group (off-season): explanatory film for about 15 minutes then visit a mini cellar ripening and tasting a piece of saint nectarios. Very nice guide and interesting explanations. Attention, however, he is not visiting a farm.

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