When my GPS said we'd arrived at the destination, I thought I'd make a mistake since there was so much construction going on. Very quickly though, you discover that this place is still being completed. There is no "check-in" or anything like that as people are milling about outside and will recognise you and just take you to your room.... More

The 2 owners are very welcoming and clearly committed to "continuous improvement". We stayed end June '14 and the lift is in and working and Alain had just fitted a small decking terrace with sun loungers from which to enjoy the view from the top of the property. The rooms are better equipped and designed than I had expected, and... More

I was looking for someplace to stay while visiting the chateaux west of Tours. I happened upon Troglododo and tested the concept with my wife and college-age daughters. I did not get an immediate "no way" so I decided to try it out for one night. Boy was I surprised. Yes, it is a cave but a beautifully appointed cave.... More

We arrived at Troglododo soaking wet after cycling through a thunderstorm. There was some initial difficulty checking in with all the torrential rain and lightning, but this was more than redeemed when they brought us tea and cake and very kindly offered to wash and dry our gear which is definitely beyond the call of duty. The rooms we stayed... More

Set in the hillside just 10minutes walk out of the lovely Azay le Rideau, Trogladodo has some great individual rooms, ours was in the loft but had its own outdoor area with table and chairs. We took advantage of this by cooking a meal in the unadvertised kitchenette which was a nice surprise. Alain was a great help and the... More

This is a magical place. The caves are magnificently appointed, comfortable and summer-cool despite the July heatwave. Alain is an obliging host and serves a splendid home-made breakfast. Azay le Rideau itself is a charming little town. The only snag at present is access between the accommodation and the car park, which is higher up the cliff. OK coming down,... More

Let me start by saying that staying in a cave is a really unusual thing to do and we did it with a sense of adventure and were glad we did. Alain is a very charming host and has done a magnificent job in converting these caves into a very modern and comfortable set of rooms. In fact we would... More

For some folk the thought of spending a night in a cave would send shivers down their spine but Troglododo is beutifully decorated and tastefully illuminated if you dont want that pitch dark experience. The hosts could not have been more pleasant and informative. When we arrived on our motorcycle after a long hot run a pitcher of cold apple... More

This is a fascinating place to stay as the rooms are caves carved out of the hillside a couple of kilometres out of town. The interiors are whitewashed and beautifully furnished, and decorated in an eccentric and colourful style with imaginative lighting. Our host was very welcoming, and as we were the only guests that night we were allowed to... More

Stayed in Petite Troglododo, and had friends in Victoria H, in September - it's even better than it looks on the website because the shower rooms are beautiful too, and the wide terrace is well-planted and stunning. There are also steps down to sloping areas with loungers and BBQs plus most of the rooms seem to have kitchenette areas. Alain... More
