What people are saying about Luberon

Our and farm owner Johann was both knowledgeable and entertaining. He explained the process of cultivating truffles along with some great stories. Our group was small so everyone had a chance to participate. He even accommodated my mobility scooter so I could join the group on the hunt! After, the tasting was absolutely delicious and so informative. If you enjoy these kind of off-the-beaten-path experiences, this is a must-do in Provence! If truffles aren’t for you, Johann has olive trees, beehives and grape stomping! Something for everyone! Don’t miss out!

My girlfriend and I booked the full day tour and can only say: it was totally worth it! Sunja was our tour guide and carried out the tour with a lot of joy and enthusiasm. Gregg led the wine tasting with lots of humor and charm. Absolutely recommendable for everyone who wants to get a comprehensive impression of the wonderful Provence.

Johanne gave us a most interesting and memorable learning experience. We learnt everything there is to know and had a lot of fun with 3 very experienced highly trained truffle finding dogs. All in all a very well prepared experience that we would highly recommend.
