It was interesting. You can imagine how these poeple lived only 100 years ago. The information voice recordings were very instructive. There is a total of 3-4 cave-houses to visit. We were expecting maybe long running caves that could take hours to visit. This was...More

Having travelled to Lourdes over the past decade, this May (2016) was the first I ever revisited these caves with a school pilgrimage group. All I can say, is that I wished I had discovered this sooner! It was by far one of the best...More

This is indeed a special place. You are taken inside the cliff into small caves with 3-4 tables each. The menu is mostly fixed: fouaces with rillettes, sort of bacon and white beans then cheese or other desserts, local wine and coffee or tea. The...More

Can one be here around Saumur without going through a troglodytal experience? I think not. We went to Rochemenier, it rained and we decided to give the restaurant a try. We didn't know about it ( how strange) and were welcomed by a very sweet...More

Very interesting location in troglodyte area and very popular. Excellent meal, selection of dishes brought to you, with aperitif and bottle of wine etc, and a tour of the caves and oven midway through. Very reasonable price and very nice service. Highly recommended.
