Outstanding mushrooms, and an amazing underground city! - Bourré – Loir-et-Cher -

Outstanding mushrooms, and an amazing underground city!

Between Tours and Orléans, in Bourré, you will find mushrooms 50 metres underground, which is normal in the region, but also a 19th century village...

Mushrooms... for 120 kilometers!

We quote them for the record, these famous mushrooms called "de Paris" (you speak... !), since they are a speciality of the region. You will find them with "Blue Feet", "Yellow Oyster Mushrooms", and the tasty "Shii Také". All this is very classic, but....
But what is less so is that they are grown in 120 kilometres of galleries, spread over seven floors, all at 12°, as it should be, to obtain the best possible flavours. 

It is the only mushroom farm in the world to cultivate its mushrooms in this way, entirely, 50 metres underground!
This policy makes it specialized in high-end mushrooms, and sells, among other things, in French starred gourmet restaurants... but also in New York, Geneva, London, etc !

It produces about 100 tonnes per year, including, for example, 40% of the world's production of "Blue Feet".

A 19th century village

The tufa in which these cellars were dug was used to build Chenonceaux, Cheverny, Chambord, and many others... This stone offers a precious characteristic: it hardens and whitens over time, in the air.

Today, this quarry revives the mysterious life of the stonemasons who worked underground in this way. And it is a real 19th century village that has been restored, a testimony, with nearly 1500 m² of frescos directly carved in the mass! 

Now we're far beyond the unusual: it's bewitching!

Habitations troglodytiques, rudimentaires ou seigneuriales, refuges souterrains, galeries d'extraction, labyrinthes viticoles, champignonnières, églises dissimulées dans les profondeurs de la pierre... le sous-sol calcaire de l'Anjou, de la Touraine et du Poitou est creusé bien plus qu'on ne le soupçonne généralement. Un monde souterrain étonnamment vaste a été dessiné siècle après siècle et dédouble le monde de la surface. Y pénétrer, s'initier à l'art de vivre " troglo ", c'est goûter aux charmes encore méconnus d'une région, c'est assurément faire de surprenantes découvertes.
