Do not miss seeing the cave that dates back to Roman days. Try their best wine Le Souverain, it's awesome. Enjoy a meal, and relax in a cozy setting.

My visit at Chateau Ksara was part of a day tour. After the lunch, we went to Ksara, home of the famous Ksara Caves. Unfortunately, the guided visit does not include a tour of the plantation. We briefly visited two rooms of the Roman caves...More

...and a big business type of experience then you will love Ksara. The Roman cave tour takes 10-15 minutes at a slow walk but is cool when the sun is hot. My comparison of the free tasting vs the premium with cheese was that I...More
