Just down the track, the owners have a restaurant in the troglodyte caves.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Le Petit Troglo is spacious inside and keeps a pleasant constant temperature. More worktop space in the kitchen area would be useful and easy chairs would be appreciated. The bed is very comfortable and the shower is excellent. June 2012.
  2. Property is perfect. Very cosy and clearly loved by its owners. Area is very peaceful, with beautiful scenery and friendly people. March 2012.
  3. Le Petit Troglo is packed with charm. According to its builders, this cosy cave took a full two years to excavate. The furnishings are suitable sparse, the four-poster bed is very comfortable, and lit by the orange glow of the fire the walls take on a inviting feel. Despite the often bleak mid-winter weather, the whole Montrichard area is packed with more Gallic flavour than some of the fantastic cheeses and wines on offer. There’s a lot to be said for looking out over a slow-flowing river from a hilltop cave while sharing breakfast with the best company money cannot buy. Dec 2011.
  4. The Petit Troglo was excellent. It was beautifully situated in a rockface overlooking the wonderful River Cher which flows into the Loire. It is close to the town of Montrichard with its picture book streets and imposing castle. The property is also on the edge of the village of Bourre with local boulangerie, shop and cafe. A few of the highlights of the property are its cosiness yet convenience of local amenities. It also has a beautiful walk along the river Cher metres away from the property which follows the banks of the river into Montrichard. Another highlight were the owners. They are fantastic and really went out of their way to make the holiday amazing. They own the restaurant nearby (Les 2 caves)and we ate there several times. The property is near many of the major chateaux including Chenonceaux and Chambord as well as Amboise. Bikes can be hired nearby as well as Kayaks. There are some great walks and cycle trails.The Gite is peaceful and comfortable with a good bathroom and well maintained furniture. It was pleasantly cosy and the seating area outside made for a relaxing place to chill and read a book. The only improvements we would make would be directions (which only need rephrased a little), and the mattress on the bed which may be we werent used to. On the whole we had a great stay and would really recommend Le Petit Troglo. July 2011.
  5. Wonderfully characterful accommodation and being carved out of the rock the temperature inside hardly varied from 19-21c. Nicely refurbished - not luxurious ( what do you expect from a cave!) but comfortable all the same. Don’t worry about the property description talking about some low ceilings - I’m 6’3" and had no problems. If you take bikes with you it’s a very easy cycle ride to Chenonceaux and back and Montrichard nearby has all the facilities you could possibly need as well as a quirky pub on the bridge over the Cher. Aug 2011.
  6. Lovely accommodation - built into a cave. The owner was very friendly and helpful, and owns an quiet, excellent restaurant on the same site also built into a cave. Highly recommended. June 2011.
