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!

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.

It was a content-rich, exciting and entertaining experience in every way, which was rounded off with champagne and a myriad of wonderful tastings. We can warmly recommend the trip.

Msr. Pepin is a wonderful host and I thoroughly enjoyed the truffle hu

Very informative and lots of fun. And the truffles were delicious and the champagne flowed. One of the best things I did in Provence.

Thank you for the great experience and for making the vegan (and very delicious) tasting possible! :-)
