Mushroom anf truffles hunting

Mushroom and truffle hunting is much practiced in the Chianti area and generally throughout Tuscany. We organize excursions on foot through thick woods, accompanied by an expert guide and his dogs, to hunt for mushrooms and truffles, the latter being quite proliferous in the area around Villa il Santo. The participants will enjoy the quiet of our countryside and the beauty of its wildlife, in its myriad forms and colors.

Each outing starts from the garden of the villa and ends in the kitchen, where the tasty tubers will be put to good use to prepare the most delicious dishes that will delight the palate of the most exacting gourmets.
