Loire Valley Truffle Hunter
In the bucolic Loire Valley, a proud "Baron de la Truffe" landowner welcomes you for an immersion into the world of truffles, supplemented with a refined dining experience, accompanied by stellar Chinon wines.
The Baron de la Truffe and his trained dogs will take you around the truffières in search of this incredible mushroom. You will then be invited for a traditional dinner with truffles and in-season vegetables at the neighboring medieval chateau! (the menu includes : starter, main course, cheese, dessert, wine)
Constructed in the 1400’s by Pierre de Beauvau, the great chambellan of King Charles the 7th, this is an archetypal medieval fortress. You will sleep in one of the ten splendid and historical bedrooms of the Château, with a breakfast in the morning.
