The truffle hunt was very interesting, Choco, the dog, sniffed around and, when he got the scent of the truffles, he began digging until the guide told him to stop and then she dug gently to uncover the truffle. The luxury dinner was superlative. The food was fresh, local and focussed on truffles. The villa where the truffle hunt took... More

We then enjoyed an excellent 3 course meal which enabled us to sample fresh truffle and chat to the other people on the tour. We... More

A once in a lifetime experience for us! Terrific location, terrific guide that made it fun for all. Choco the dog was the star of the show! And the truffle tasting lunch was amazing and in an amazing villa dining room! We could not have asked for more from this experience!

We were greeted warmly and given a tour of the beautiful grounds. We then started on our hunt led by Francesca and her faithful dog, walking... More

We had a lot of fun there. Francesca and her family were super nice, the lunch her mom prepared was superb. Their place is beautiful, we found a few white truffles during our walk through the forest.

We got very lucky with the weather having missed the rain. It was fun hiking through the woods with the truffle hunter and her dogs. We found one small white truffle and 3 larger black truffles which served as delicious toppings for the fantastic lunch prepared. My mouth is still watering thinking about all the great flavor and textures from... More
