Here's how it works
Become a Truffle Hunter
The woodland truffle tour is the latest trend in personalized holidays. Our all-inclusive package ensures that what is found becomes a delectable dish to savor within hours.
Diego, the company’s owner, will personally guide you, accompanied by one of his four dogs—Saetta, Spartaco, Nutella and Tommy. Before venturing into the woods, he shares insights about the terrain, its flora and fauna, and the culinary delights it holds.
As the dog detects a truffle and starts digging, the joyous anticipation in people’s eyes is palpable—they celebrate as if unearthing a treasure. During the extraction of this prized subterranean mushroom, you’ll learn the proper technique, ensuring utmost care for the roots and hyphae.
A SENSORY ITINERARY TO live
Finding a truffle makes the entire vacation worthwhile, especially when paired with the delightful path through nature, where you connect with the local flora and fauna. Some groups walk for miles, and not a single complaint has ever been voiced.

What they say about us
A dive into history:
the Nebbiano refuge
Among the places you can visit during our walk in the middle of nature there is also the Nebbiano refuge. This refuge is characterized by many fossils and minerals sedimented on the walls of the cave, which testify that the sea was in Valdelsa.
It was built by hand by the family who lived in our house at the time, with the help of a donkey that was used to bring out the earth. To protect themselves from the bombings of the Second World War, in 1944 2 families found a place in this refuge, with six or seven children for 20 days from September to October, in addition to them the cow for milk and the usual donkey.
What little there was to eat was cooked by lighting the fire in a stove, dug in the ground, while the father was close to home to protect his home and what little there was.
