The Langhe area is world-famous for its prized truffles. Take the opportunity during your workation in Novello to experience authentic truffle hunting together with Elio, an expert local truffle hunter!

What you will do

Once you arrive at the truffle field, you will meet Elio, a friendly local truffle hunter who will welcome you together with his valuable and trusted colleagues, his dogs!

During the experience, Elio will tell you about how to search for truffles, in which seasons you can find white truffles and how to eat them. Searching for truffles takes time and patience, but when you least expect it, you will see the dog begin to wag his tail and sniff enthusiastically near the roots of a tree.

The search will last about 1h30, during which you may be lucky enough to find truffles, maybe even big ones!
