Our truffle hunt:

Live an experience of 3 hours on hills of Parma in the little country town of Sozzi (Valmozzola) and become a "truffle hunter" for a day, accompanied by one expert guide and her two purebred dogs Lagotto Romagnolo .

At the end of the search among the truffle forest and the surrounding woods, a sumptuous banquet awaits you with a tasting of truffle-based products .


The appointment is at Valmozzola (PR) , 15 minutes early of the time indicated at the time of booking.

Here we will find Flavia waiting for us, together with her mom Laura and the three truffle dogs Trilli , Maya and Ludovica , who will welcome us joyfully. Theirs infallible nose it is a combination of nature and training: the Lagotto Romagnolo , in fact, is a breed specialized in truffle hunting.

Before getting into the heart of the activity, the guide will give an introduction to the world of truffles and the different types. So we'll start the search in the truffle farm of the structure, interacting firsthand with Trilli and Maya and motivating them to "hunt" with some little treats .

The route in the truffle forest extends for approximately 2km and can continue into the woods surroundings for an even more complete experience. Immersed in the vegetation of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines , we will follow the truffle dogs closely until they lead us to the truffles , which we will bring to light with our own hands.

Depending on the season, we will be able to find black summer truffle or black fall truffle . The search for truffles can last between an hour and an hour and a half (it will depend on how much we can find!).

Here we will sit down for a substantial meal tasting of artisanal truffle-based products and fresh truffles prepared by mom Laura; the final touch will be a grating of the truffle that we have found on top of the dishes. If we want, after the tasting we will be able to buy the other truffles found during our search.

The total duration of the activity will be approximately 3 hours .

A magical place

a magical place: as the sun sets and the cool of the evening rises, you can sit comfortably and look at a panorama that can only give you tranquility and peace... the room is very cute, tastefully furnished; the bathroom spotless and perfect. in the morning sun everywhere, without disturbing noises other than those of nature awakening. and then a choice of different breakfasts that brings joy! if you need to "recharge your batteries" or spend a different weekend or simply escape from everyday life this is the place to choose. super recommended!

Truffle hunting

The truffle hunting experience was perfect from start to finish. Flavia and Laura make sure you have a fantastic experience tailored to your needs. We were welcomed with open arms and immediately felt at home. They gave us basic information about the various types of truffles and how we would find them. Then we began the experience of truffle hunting with the three fantastic Lagotto Romagnolo dogs: Trilli, Maya and Ludo. After a couple of hours of truffle hunting in the fields and forest, we returned with many beautiful truffles that we just found where the dogs indicated. We were greeted from the truffle hunt with cool drinks and an assortment of locally grown produce. We even got to try one of the truffles we found. Overall, it was a great experience with great people and friendly dogs. This experience far exceeded our expectations and we would do it again 100 times. If you like truffles or just like nature, dogs or another type of activity, this is super recommended. An additional advantage is that Flavia speaks perfect Italian, English and German. They are lovely people, with lovely dogs in a lovely location and we highly recommend their experience.

Truffle hunting

Our truffle hunting experience with Flavia, her family and her adorable dogs was the highlight of our Italy trip! This is a wonderful opportunity to learn so much more about truffles (never get fooled again!), eat amazing food prepared by her mom, and enjoy an amazing day with the family. They welcomed us so warmly into their house and we had the best time chatting with them. Could not recommend more!

Wonderful!

This was a really wonderful experience. Truly a gem. Would highly recommend. Flavia and Laura are so welcoming and knowledgeable. We got to collect truffles and learn about how she trained the dogs. They welcomed us into their home for a delicious tasting of their products. This experience felt authentic and not touristy
