Much of Villa Lena’s 500 hectares is woodland teeming with wild boar and, come autumn, the famous tartufo bianco.
The white truffle, or tartufo bianco, season usually starts in mid September and continues until Christmas. During this period you can join us for the ultimate, seasonal Tuscan experience.
Truffle hunt – 20 euros per person
Jump into the bottle green SUV with the truffle dogs and our truffle guide to go hiking for an hour or two into the woods, searching for tartufo bianco.
Truffle pasta – 35 euros per person
One word – yum! Tuck into fresh homemade pasta, topped with the very truffles you picked from the ground just an hour earlier and wash it all down with a delicious glass of Villa Lena red wine or sparkling rosé for a seasonal gastronomic highlight.
If you can’t bear to leave without taking a taste of this seasonal delicacy with you, fear not: you can buy our tartufo bianco from our daily truffle hunt yield, by weight, in Villa Lena’s shop. Enquire with reception to find out more.
