Truffle Hunting

Its called the white gold and its nt easy to find. But thanks to Paolo and his well rained dogs we are able to give you an interesting introduction of the trade of a truffle hunter in Tuscany. In San Giaovanni d´Asso Paolo will first give you all the insights about the truffles which can be found in this areas. Raging from the Summer truffle to the white truffle he will explain where they can be found and how the dogs are trained. Then we will go off into the woods to let his dog sniff out the precious mushroom. If you want yu can buy some truffles directly from Paolo and we prepare them in the evening or we can add a superb lunch in the nearby Trattoria which is specialised in Truffle dishes.

River and Castle Tour

For all nature and history lovers this might be your day! We will take you to a beautiful and breathtaking tour just outside of Siena to have a swim in a natural river in the middle of a nature reserve. The children will love it as there is lots to do. From Tarzan swings to rock climbing or just swimming up to 100 meters. We can combine the day with a walk to the Castello “God only knows” which is located in the middle of the woods before returning to river for a barbecue or a visit in the nearby Restaurants.

Palio Tour

The Palio di Siena is one of the most exciting events in Tuscany. The horse race takes place twice year on July 2nd and August 16th. If you have booked your holiday over these two days you might want to come with us to Siena and have a very special day. We will take you either for a half day or full day to Siena and show you without joining the crowds what the Palio is about. We will slowly make our way to the Duomo to see the parade and later end up just before the last gate is closing in the middle of the Piazza. After the race we will make our way to the Church again as no Palio is really true without having experienced the emotions from the winning team which will enter the church with drums and flags while singing traditional songs of victory.
