  • The belonte family, which one can visit the farm a little more away, see the cows, milking and cheese making, built of ancient cave dwellings in order to travel back in time. I didn't know what I expect, but I enjoyed. At the end of the visit. You can buy cheese.

  • Visit an old House, part of the history of the region and a very interesting family. Tasting of St Nectaire Vision d a little movie and discovery of photos in 3D, superb and exceptional. Predict a lifejacket for children. If you want to anger at the Inn, reservation required before because fast full

  • The visit of the caves and the farm has allowed us a good time with your family or small and large there we found their account. Milking the cows to many liked to our 4 year old son who also enjoyed the animated tour of the caves. 4 years seems to Me a minimum age.

  • If you're found of history, of Saint-Nectaire cheese or even of -light- geology this museum will fulfill your expectations! The guides are nice and always ready to explain. the visit ends with rare 3D pictures of the region in the 19th century. A must-seen in the region. The shop has also very nice local products. And finally, the village itself is worth to see, in the middle of the mountains. I loved it!
  • playful, interesting visit with a thread, it is possible to visit the farm until the time of the visit. Accessible to children. I recommend.

  • We went with 2 children: 6 years and 10 years. Interesting site, 1st cave with explanations of the nice guide, nice cheese tasting. For what is the 2nd cave, explanations in video and pictures on the history of farges not very accessible for the age of the children, even us as only adults we unhooked. so also for the quality of the image, need more darkness? We see that the owners wished imager with a turntable, but we have too much before his interest. .. For the last cave, fortunately we get more to project ourselves into places with the bread oven, etc... It's too bad that we do not have a guide which explains rather than a recorded voice. By the end of the visit, still a projection (the child of 6 years is more responsive at all), this time this return back more playful and very original photographs in 3D. Quite expensive for a family. The site is all the same to discover
