Information about our village TROO :
Troo is one of the prettiest villages and unusual in France. Its site and its very special layout: staggered terraces, caves, charming paths, stairs everywhere.
No real streets, no center, it is the mystery that makes you want to go to his discovery.
First name: we find the first mention in the eleventh century. The most common interpretation is "trou", an allusion to dig caves that hill. Troo is the English spelling (trôo was occupied by the English Plantagenet time) or Angevin old.
Today, many cave dwellings are restored and became beautiful houses; you can visit.
