What you'll do

the activity will begin with the meeting of the participants in front of our farm, after which it will descend from the village along a narrow street typical of medieval villages taking advantage of the opportunity to admire the breathtaking place and arriving on the predetermined path that can also vary according to the our participants offering the possibility between the basic (lighter and linear) route and the more challenging (more adrenaline) route. Arriving in the woods, you will start your truffle hunting adventure by observing how our dogs can smell the truffle meters away but understand and see also that you are not the only ones who pass by those parts or like truffles. A small break will take place in the hut in the middle of the woods where you can make a small taste of truffle and wine / water. Obviously your experience will continue with the return to our farm and then to the restaurant by our fantastic Gianluca, a smiling, funny person and where his welcome makes us feel special we can of course have lunch / dinner dishes with truffles.
Other things to note
it is advisable to have suitable clothing for the experience you are going to do (no heels, flip-flops or elegant clothes)

The truffle experience itself was great. Easy walk through the woods with the dog and guide. However poor coordination and communication between the staff. Diana is the person you talk to via messaging who told us to come at 8:30am to meet with Nico before the trip. Nobody showed until 9:10 then we waited more for other people who ran late. After truffle hunting, Nico left and the other guide took us into his kitchen where we thought we were getting the lunch but he said it was only for people who signed up for a separate cooking class and that he did not know anything about where we were supposed to go for lunch afterwardswaited around for lunch only to hear that the other guide has no idea where we are supposed to go. Messaged Diana who said to go to a nearby cafe, where the owner thought lunch was at 1pm, 2 hrs after we were done. Listing clearly states activity includes lunch afterwards, says no other details and other staff had no idea. Listing also says snacks and wine or water in the woods, no such thing was provided. We returned and basically were left kn the streets confused for what we are supposed to do. Great hiking itself, however, poor communication between the staff and very overpriced compared to other truffle hunting experiences that are cheaper and actually comes with food. There are other options on Airbnb for truffle hunting in this region so I would go with that.
