Encounter with a true expert
We loved this visit, the proprietor is a true expert and loves to share his knowledge of the truffle. As well as a very interesting classroom style lesson we went out to look at a plantation and then to the actual hunt. The dogs never failed, each time they were asked to search they found a truffle, it still needed digging up and that is where the class came in handy, there were no shortage of volunteers. The visit contains a lot of humour as well as a lot of knowledge. The price of the visit was fair but we found the tasting plate a bit expensive for what it was. Overall I would definitely recommend it, I came away with a new respect for the truffle.

One of the Best things we did in France
It was incredible!!! The tour, the information, the food…were perfect. We have traveled all over the world and this was by far one of the most interesting and informative tours. My husband speaks French but I do not, and yet I was able to understand and even have an in-depth conversation about farm life.

Rewarding Experience
We loved this experience. This is not a truffle hunt, it is a truffle find. First, Monsieur Aynaud, a master of every aspect of the black diamonds, entertains you with an education of the truffle, what it is, what it isn't, history, value, perception, and teaches you how to identify the authentic flavorful pungent black, grey and white truffles when shopping and dining. Then, he explains the delicate art and science of propagation and lastly, shows you exactly how to find and harvest truffles with his dogs and other accomplices. His passion and zeal are infectious, you will not go away disappointed.
