Our and farm owner Johann was both knowledgeable and entertaining. He explained the process of cultivating truffles along with some great stories. Our group was small so everyone had a chance to participate. He even accommodated my mobility scooter so I could join the group on the hunt! After, the tasting was absolutely delicious and so informative. If you enjoy these kind of off-the-beaten-path experiences, this is a must-do in Provence! If truffles aren’t for you, Johann has olive trees, beehives and grape stomping! Something for everyone! Don’t miss out!

Johanne gave us a most interesting and memorable learning experience. We learnt everything there is to know and had a lot of fun with 3 very experienced highly trained truffle finding dogs. All in all a very well prepared experience that we would highly recommend.

Did this tour in 2019 and again in 2022. Excellent both times........friendly and vigilant tour guide. Really good value for money. Sea level to breathtaking mountain views......exhilarating!!!!

A beautiful area to bike in. Knowledgeable guide with lots of patience for slower riders. Loved the Calanque, perfect for e-bikes
