  • Visit caves, explanations of the manufacture of cheese with a guide saint nectaire passion. Small film and cheese tastings. No obligation to buy. We bought a cheese, the price is very reasonable and cheaper than the market.

  • £5 50 the entry for the visit, a 12 minute for us film explain the saint nectaire, beautiful Auvergne scenery making, and leadership the cellar refining,(enfin une reproduction miniature,une vingtaine de fromages sur la paille) the person who we fact the visit is struggling to answer the questions asked) 5 minutes, we go up the stairs for a tasting of st nectaire, and what a surprise we were four adults (two slices of bread (baguette) with on each a piece) St nectaire huge 1 cm x1cm x 1 cm where we had to recognize the farmer and the pasteurized), a real challenge, which for me was easy to meet because in my huge piece there was a piece of crust that you cannot eat the color of the farmer tasting! ! This fact before the AOP refrigerators, prices you could almost forget what you came we are good players, we take some cheeses even when

  • 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.
