“A beautiful place”
My wife an I travelled to France for just a week and we wanted to be in the countryside, away from cities but close enough to the Chateaux area. Cave Yucca proved absolutely ideal. It is quiet, peaceful and surrounded by songbirds. The village of Troo which it overlooks is delightful. We spent a wonderful week just driving around the countryside , visiting the historical places, walking in the small towns and just unwinding . The house is set high on the hill in Troo and the pathway is a little challenging but good for you. We thoroughly recommend this place and will be back. Kate the owner was very pleasant and accommodating in our communications,and her French neighbour Alain was extremely helpful. You should make friends with Cus Cus, his beautiful white cat
“Ancient home, modern comfort”
Our Troo experience was not only a perfect almost-end to our European experience, it was also hassle-free. We stayed in Troo for almost a week in early December 2010. Although the weather was unseasonably cold that year, the cave house was warm and comfortable, offering all of the modern conveniences but also retaining the features that made it an interesting experience. We travelled with two young children, who loved wandering on the paths around the cave houses, the hill and the old church - especially after the snow started. The town was quiet at that time of year, which added to the charm. The views from the top floor were spectacular, and the cave bedroom quiet and comfortable. The town is close to many other cave house towns, and also within an hour to larger towns, such as Le Mans. We even travelled on the fast train to Paris and back in a single day - quite doable and surprisingly affordable. Unlike some other Vrbo properties, we could pay for this one online rather than wiring money, the instructions from the owner were clear, and alain the caretaker was friendly and accommodating, taking us on a tour of the cave house museum and working very hard to communicate with us - we speak no French. As Kate will no doubt warn you, there are few provisions in Troo, but there are supermarkets within fifteen minutes' drive. Overall, we had a great time.
“A lovely, peaceful and precious place”
I will carry the view over the river in my heart for many years. As a keen birdwatcher and nature lover, I enjoyed seeing Golden Orioles, Hobby, Turtle Doves and Coypu in the river below the bank. It was wonderful to be back in French culture, with good food in Montoire, culture in the chateaux, and spacious countryside with little traffic. I'd love to come again.
“Spectacular view and wonderful quietness”
My family of 5 and I fully enjoyed our one week stay at The Cave Yuccas in October 2010. The place offered complete relaxation, exciting trips to nearby castles and winerys and interesting small villages with tempting flea markets and delicious farmer's markets.
“Peaceful Getaway-Stunningly Beautiful!”
My friend and I, from the us, had just run the Medoc Marathon in Bordeaux (my first-yippee) and by the best luck was linked to the Cave Yuccas thru a friend. Although our stay was way too short-we had a fabulous time. From the moment we parked at the church and packed a small bag of essentials and walked the path to the cave-we were sold! Everything about the lovely decorated home to the most amazing views to the friendly people of Troo-everything exceeded our expectations! I have traveled quite extensively over the years and this place I def. will return. A true gem! I am already bragging it up to my friends and hoping for a girls getaway reunion vacation-with lots of time to just sit on the beautiful terrace and soak in the views, the lovely wine-from the local wine cave, oh I just can't say enough! Kudos to Kate for being a superb hostess and alain for taking care of us travelers!
“The house, the landscape and friends, remarkable!!”
I have been to Cave Yucca twice now and looking forward to returning. It is located in a delightful small village along the side of a south facing slope overlooking a vast expanse of the Little Loire Valley. Many of the residences are in the troglodyte caves that have been remarkably restored with modern conveniences. Cave Yucca has the best of both types of dwellings with a cottage above and the cave below. I can't wait to return to visit with the many friends I have made there. Rocky Fuller - October 7, 2008
“Luxury Cave accomodations in a Throw-Back Village”
Our stay at the Yucca Caves was amazing. The cave itself was renovated and it is hard to believe that 2 to 3 of your walls are part of the earth. The main living area had amazing light and modern facilities complete with tile, hard wood floors, and warm furnishings. The main room opened up to a garden and sitting area overlooking the town. It was beautiful. Peaceful. Relaxing. You were by no means roughing it at the Yucca Cave. There was wireless internet as well (score!!). The village itself was so cool. That's the throw-back part of the review. You had to time things well, as the bakery was open from 930 to noon. It was great just walking around the town. We met a guy who was living in a horse-drawn carriage - a true cowboy. I'd say my favorite part of trip was visiting the Wine Cave. The owner offered wine tastings from 2-7 every day. We stopped by the wine cave both nights that we stayed. It was great fun chit-chatting with the wine guy and tasting generous pours of wine. The Yucca Caves was a great stop. On a trip that included wine country, a marathon, La Rochelle, and Paris... I can easily say that the Yucca Caves was my favorite part of the trip. It is a hidden gem.
