About the Property
Unique cave property with charming guest cottage offers 'wow!' panoramic views
Perched high up on the hillside with full southern exposure, the Cave Yuccas property offers stunning views over the village, river and 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.

- One of the great things about this property is that it is built into the side of a hill, overlooking the river and valley, with no road in front of the house. As there is no car access to the Cave Yuccas, you must be fit enough to walk on foot paths and climb stairs with your luggage, groceries from the market, bottles of wine, etc. The property is terraced with internal and external stairs on three stories, so small children should be supervised. ...moreless

La Cave Yuccas is an exceptional vacation rental in the Loire Valley, France. Located in the troglodyte village of Trôo, the property features a unique cave house and heritage museum with a beautifully restored cottage above the cave. Perched high up on the hillside with full southern exposure, the Cave Yuccas property offers stunning views over the village, river and valley. The origins of the ancient town of Trôo are lost in antiquity, but traces of its importance as a medieval 'city' can be seen today in the heights of the village where remains are visible -- a surrounding fortified wall, dominated by a feudal mound and a splendid roman collegiate church. The hillside, covered with greenery, reaches a height of 129 meters and was carved from rock in various layers, in which caves were dug to form many picturesque habitations. Discover this extraordinary river valley of ancient churches, castles and caves, and relish the delights of the farmers markets, restaurants, and vineyards.
Other Activities: Discover local farmers markets, chateaux, and vineyards, and explore this ancient troglodyte village along the Loir river by foot or bicycle
Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: Having lived in France and studied French my whole life, it seemed to be my destiny to live, at least part time, in France. I spend part of the spring and fall in Trôo and the rest of the time in San Francisco, California.
Why the Owner Chose Troo, France:
I simply became enchanted by Trôo whilst on a romantic vacation with my boyfriend in 2000. It was a combination of the charm of the cave village, the sheer beauty of the views from the property, and the amazing local food and wine. It's been over ten years since, and the enchantment has not yet worn off!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I come every spring and autumn, and there is never a dull moment. Farmers markets, brocantes (village swap meets), chateaux to explore, wine to taste, really, I feel like the best that France has to offer is right here in the Vallée du Loir. But with my incredible views spanning over the valley, I am happy to just stay at home, reading in the hammock or sipping wine with friends on the terrace.
