  • Too bad he didn't s is not a real cave to cheese... but the visit is nice! Film, reproduced with real cheese, tasting cellar... Made us to taste cheese and then there is the shop.

  • J had spotted the site a few days before preparing our we in Auvergne... I must admit that I m expected much better... 20 euros for the visit which is about 10 minutes of film, a small cellar the slot floor and 2 tiny pieces of cheese tasting... of course we bought our saint nectaire there... More expensive than elsewhere actually when we visited a farm after Murol... However the young woman who gave us the tour is very friendly... but alas, in view of the site it s expecting a lot better...

  • A store may be small, but with beautiful well put products in value. A rewarding visit, carried out by a young woman totally invested in his role as guide, and his love for the land. We were already heavily invested in the idea of consuming local and to live and share the land, this dynamic young woman comforted us in this idea. Friendly, informative and dynamic Exchange, pleasant tasting, in short a great time! For grumpy potentials, it is tasting and comparison: do not expect a dinner drink... and do not hesitate to seek advice when conservation of cheese, its transport, etc... they are at the top, and know clearly what they are talking about. Only downside: lack of personnel both to force the guide to many back and forth between the shop and the visit.

  • Simply a beautiful scam known as a tourist trap. We show you an old video of 30 years and taste a piece of cheese, not to mention the shop of course. . I find it shameful to pay for it. Visit nearby farms if you want to see the cheese. Plus it's free.

  • Tourist trap. Fortunately that cheese is authentic. Go rather to the farms nearby.
