TRUFFLE HUNTER FOR A DAY
“Emozioni dal bosco” offers you the possibility to stay in the unique and unforgettable hills of the Monferrato, famous for its status as a Unesco World Heritage site.
Far away from the typical tourist trail, we go on a search for a precious treasure- the diamond of the earth- truffles!
Immerse yourself in the peaceful countryside of the Monferrato, where you can hunt for delicious mushrooms between the woods
and the fields, with the help of Trifolau, our helpful and indispensable four-footed friend.
From 1st June until 31st of January you can book a place to join us in a wonderful programme of events and activities, where you can take a break from the hectic lifestyle of the city.
