roquefort cheese

not for the faint hearted

South of the Parc Naturel Régional des Grands Causses, at the foot of Combalou mountain, a unique village awaits. It is here, within the rock, that you will find the cellars wherein the famous Roquefort cheese slowly matures.

Unmissable, a visit to the cellars of plunges you into an underground maze that formed naturally after the collapse of Combalou mountain.

Converted into vast cellars ventilated by fleurines, natural cracks that allow air circulation underground and maintain a constant air temperature, they contain thousands of 'cakes' of Roquefort, tended by the refining masters, owners of know-how and tradition dating back over a thousand years.

There are six producers of which four have guided tours:
