Great morning! We arrived a little late, although not deliberately, or by habit, it didn't seem to phase the owners of this business. We started in a room so filled with the smell of white truffles it was delightfully intoxicating. We were given a detailed explanation of all things truffles and were allowed to ask questions at any time. Then... More

We enjoyed our time at La Casa Del Trifulau. After a short introductory session on the historical and folklore of the truffle we met the dogs and went on the hunt. We booked it on our own and found it to be a wonderful afternoon. The two brothers work in tandem one indoors and the other on the hunt. We... More

The walk in the near by mountain. The hunt with the dogs for the prize and the finding of the Trifulau on the mountain.... More

Our agriturismo booked this tour at our request. We were interested, but didn't really know what to expect. The very personable Natalie began the tour by giving us a very good briefing on truffles. In addition, we learned about the dogs and their training. I was not wearing the best shoes, so I was offered a pair of boots. We... More

La Casa del Trifulau is the place you go to learn about truffels and go on a truffel hunt. You'll learn more things about truffles than you even knew you didn't know. Giorgio and Natale, your hosts, have a true passion for truffles, and it is infective. We went into this experience a little skeptical, to be honest, since none... More

We had a great time. The truffle hunter is full of information and the dogs are hysterical as they run around sniffing among the trees. We found three truffles. The guide gets to keep them, but who cares. He shaved the biggest one found by the dogs over some soft cheese and we all ate it with some local wine... More
