This unique cave property with charming guest cottage offers 'wow!' panoramic views. Perched high up on the hillside with full southern exposure, the Cave Yuccas cottage sleeps up to five people and offers stunning views over the village, river and valley. The Cave Yuccas heritage museum is below the cottage and offers visitors a chance to experience what it was like living in a 19th century troglodyte house. Or simply enjoy a crepe and cafe in the Cave Yuccas courtyard.
The guest cottage is totally private and has the most wonderful terrace for dining with spanning views over the whole valley.
Discover local farmers markets, chateaux, and vineyards, and explore this ancient troglodyte village along the Loir river by foot or bicycle. Nearby 12th century frescoed churches and hillside castles speak of the rich history of this area, once controlled by Richard the Lionheart. History buffs as well as seekers of the authentic French village experience will enjoy strolling around upper Trôo where remains of the surrounding fortified walls are visible, dominated by an ancient feudal mound and a splendid roman collegiate church.
Guests enjoy a completely independent and private cottage which sits above the Cave Yuccas heritage museum. There are two entrances to the cottage, one leads into the bedroom on the ground floor, and the other entrance is up the stairs to the terrace where french doors open into the living area.
Alain, the Cave Yuccas heritage museum guide, will be your host, and will be on site at the museum to greet you and show you through the house. Since Alain works every day from Easter to Hallowe'en, should you wish to chat with him or enjoy one of his delicious crepes, all you need to do is walk down to the Cave Yuccas.
As the cave houses in Troo are dug into the south-facing hillside where they benefit from the fabulous view and continuous sunshine, the only access to the caves is on foot via charming footpaths. Parking is available at the church on the top of the hill, a 5 minute walk down hill to the Cave Yuccas. As the hillside is fairly steep, this property is best-suited for the physically fit.
