You have to get there by car, driving uphill a winding road. But it's absolutely worth it, if you are looking for a genuine, local, manual cheese production.

Usually on Wednesdays they will allow guests, where you get to see a part of their every-day life. You will join one production cycle, and will be offered to taste the fresh cheese, as well as the 1 year and 2 years aged cheese.

It's a lovely place, owned and operated during summer by a local farmer and his wife. The house contains the stables, the production room, the living room (where they also sleep), and the basement for maturing the cheese.

After the tour you will have the opportunity to buy a good cheese from the previous year's production.

All in all worth a visit. I have been there with all my family. Everyone had a good time.

Maybe one more note: The farmers do not speak English. But that wasn't an issue at all. Communication works well also using hands and feet. If you bring someone who understands German, you will get a richer experience, and lots of interesting background information.
