    Welcoming friendly, but 6 euros for a light content, not worth the shot: 10 minutes of film (Yes), passage in the cellar underneath, refining and explanations (fast), 2 pieces of cheese tasting and that's all. Now the shop is interesting, but the interest of the visit, it is very blah. I think that it is better to try to go directly home producers of Saint Nectaire.

    We paid 6 euros per person for "guided tour" which turns out to be: 10 minutes in front of a video on the region and the cheese, a short stay in a false maturing cellar and a tasting of two pieces of cheese. I don't think that the visit worth its price. However the store is friendly with many products and friendly staff.

    The cheese House welcomes you to make you discover this wonderful cheese d auvergne to the particular taste. He there nothing exceptional or striking in this tour, at least from my point of view. A rather well-done film is broadcast in an air-conditioned room and after we go down in the small cellar d refining to get explanations on the aging of cheese. All this is fairly theoretical and lack some attraction, although our guide was friendly and answered questions with enthusiasm. The tasting was a good time. A correct visit but j have the impression that it lacks a little something to make it a little more attractive.

    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...

    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.

    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.
