Truffles

Escape to a charming Tuscan country retreat for a five or seven-night break with truffle hunting and cooking lessons – includes flights, car hire, breakfast, a bottle of wine and tasting session

  • Retreat to a restored Tuscan farmhouse set in the countryside near Pisa, near the Casciana thermal springs. The interiors of your studio are dressed in traditional yet stylish rural colours and comes with a kitchen, so you can create dishes after a day truffle-hunting in the wilds or learning to cook traditional meals in the farmhouse.

  • Wake each morning to an Italian breakfast before going out to explore the scenery. The hotel is set within two hectares of private parkland that’s ideal for walking, or you could make the most of your hire car to discover romantic Pisa, Renaissance Florence, or perhaps the walled city of Lucca, at your leisure.

  • At the hotel there’s a swimming pool for warmer days, with lovely views over the Lari countryside. Your hosts will be on hand to make sure you sample the very best of local cuisine, like rich and full-bodied wines from Chianti and Bolgheri, prosciutto from Siena pigs, salami and creamy regional cheese.

From Pisa airport, take the motorway SGC Firenze-Pisa-Livorno, and turn off at Pontedera-Ponsacco, following signs for Casciana Terme. Turn right at San Ruffino and follow the road uphill until you reach the hotel.
