  • Very informative. The explanations were clear and sharp, and accompanied of a small touch of humour... Our guide has answered our questions and remained at our disposal both during the visit for tasting and sale. In addition, we opted for a 'book' a paid visit and the second price reduced; This offer has been respected and with a smile! We opted for the cheese to milk... absolutely delicious.

  • We were at the House of cheese to buy lezs family memories, and we decided to take a cheese. We have very well been advised by the seller, and the cheese UM good. I recommend this store. We did not visit for lack of time. But if we once again in Auvergne we go

  • Tourist trap... I still made the visit to justify my move but big disappointment... Visit: a 10-minute film on the Auvergne and the manufacture of the Saint-NECTAIRE duplicate overhead projector but quality images with different colors, and poorly interspersed by into the bargain, the film jumps time but never on the same side... etc. Then, a witness mini-cave (so that looks quite like a true cellar) totally artificial and a little prepared speeches of the guide... In short, avoid. If you are looking to visit a real wine cellar and see the making of a Saint-NECTAIRE, go see the farms in the surrounding area.

  • 5.90E to see a video and visit a cellar of refining. You start to get together under a shelter on the outside and the guide invites you to climb a small spiral staircase which takes you to the projection room. Detail important no access for disabled people. Strollers also remain at the bottom of the stairs! Film of 15 minutes on the manufacture of the saint nectarius of a disconcerting banality. We redescendons the stairs to reach this famous cave, it boasts from the beginning its products. It is simply a "cellar" refining reconstituted but corresponding to the standards for the appellation (yeah!) The comments are just the film recall previously seen. A reflection of the guide who told us that cheese behaves as humans, that ci shrivels with age! not appreciated humor and of rudeness, no respect! We go back to the shop to do a tasting of the saint nectaire. 2 large pieces a piece of 2nd on a piece of bread more "generous". I look at the products, the prices are horrible. CONCLUSION: I've eaten in my life of the best saint nectaire those presented! There I go! A Council in saint nectaire downwards (1.7 km) a grocery store you also offers film and visit a wine cellar and this free! The Musette 63710 ST NECTAIRE down

  • Same opinion than the previous: spend your way go instead of true farms it will be free and more informative because pay € 5.90 to see a video of 15 min and a cellar nickname... Nice scam! Avoid
