Mi chiamo Francesco e sono un tartufaio professionista da più di 10 anni. Sono anche allevatore della razza canina Lagotto Romagnolo, compagno insuperabile e insostituibile per ogni tartufaio.
Questa è un’autentica caccia al tartufo! Non cercherete tartufi in una tartufaia ma sarà una vera e propria esperienza di caccia al tartufo nel bosco. Proprio perché si tratta di una vera e propria esperienza, non c’è certezza di quanti tartufi riusciremo a trovare, potrebbero essere 5 kg di tartufo bianco o addirittura nessuno (tranquilli, succede molto raramente 😉 ). Ed è proprio questo uno dei motivi più importanti che rende questa esperienza così eccitante.
Vi porterò nei boschi dove io stesso sono solito andare a cercare tartufi in compagnia dei miei cani Lagotti Romagnoli. Durante la caccia al tartufo ti spiegherò come nascono, crescono e come trovare i tartufi e risponderò a tutte le tue curiosità sia sul cane Lagotto Romagnolo sia sui tartufi.
Saranno 2,5 ore di vera caccia al tartufo nel bosco, un’esperienza davvero unica: istruttiva, emozionante e divertente.

Don’t look any further. This is a professional truffle hunter, who hunts truffles for a living. He will take you with him and explain you some important aspects of the truffles. He has many dogs going after the truffles and goes to the forrest. It was amazing and topped nearly all other experiences we had in Tuscany. Don’t miss it!
We met with Francesco, his wife and two amazing Lagottos. After quick introduction within few minutes we were in forrest looking for truffles. The expeeience was superb! The hosts are lovely, warm people who were very easy to talk to and obviously love what they do. They are passionate about lagotto breed. Francesco and his wife shared with us lot of information about their dogs and breed as we are interested in getting lagotto. With him and his wife it felt as if we are long time friends, talk about dogs, truffles, Tuscany, lots of laughs and pleasant walk in the woods. Needles to say, we found truffles which we got to take with us and have them prepared by our hotel for a delicious truffle inspired dinner. But watching dogs work and owners interact with the dogs was what really was a piece of art to adore. Francesco is “lagotto whisperer”. This will be one of our favorite unique experiences from Toscana. We would love to repeat the tour in the future when we come to Tuscany. Grazie Francesco and the team!
Wonderful experience with Francesco and his lovely wife plus their darling, darling dogs. 2 hours, many truffles and lots of smiles (and dog cuddles). Thank you so much for such a wonderful morning!
Wonderful experience. Francesco and his wife took us out for black truffle hunting with their sweet and hard working dogs. Although not in high season, we did find a good portion of truffels. Francesco explained it all very well and we learned a lot. Highly recommended, a hard working and honest family, lots of respect to keep this tradition going. Off the beaten track, would love to do it again
We managed to find Francesco last minute as we really loved to do some truffle hunting but couldn’t find something we wanted when in Alba. A few hours later we were running through the forest chasing his dogs and an even so excited Francesco! What an experience, Francesco is such a funny and crazy dude, and his daughter was absolutely lovely and great at translating a lot for us. This definitely was one of the highlights of our two week holiday in Italy! Thanks again so much!!!
