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.Watch video
Much of Villa Lena’s 500 hectares is woodland teeming with wild boar and, come autumn, the famous ‘tartufo bianco’ or white truffle. The white truffle season usually starts in mid September and continues until Christmas. During this period you can join us for the ultimate, seasonal Tuscan experience.
Nothing beats the true gastronomic experience of digging for white truffles, guided by the lovely truffle hounds, and then eating them a few hours later on fresh, homemade pasta. White truffle season starts in the autumn and it’s a rare experience that is nowhere more evocative than in the Tuscan hills. Combine it with a carefully curated wine selection for an exceptional all-round Tuscan experience.
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 during your stay to find out more.
