What you'll do

We will go hunting in our park and you will learn how to hunt truffles with "flies". This old method is a unique experience and ask a special attention, a good nose and has only one rule: the nature respect. That's why before the hunt, we will take time to explain to you how to profit a maximum of your experience. During the hunt, I will explain all the truffle secrets. You will learn how to recognise a good and a bad truffle, if it is enough mature or not and how to harvest them without damage. I will teach you how to clean and cook the truffles for the evening meal. In the evening, we will eat our fresh truffles with good wines and other delicatessen. The morning, we will go to the truffle market in order to have a full truffle experience. It is a time travel to our origins and traditions.

Owner of the Domaine de Lascaux, a magic place based at 200m from the Lascaux Cave with a panoramic view on the Vezere Valley, the good food and wine is my life style. I love to share the region treasuries with my guests. The Périgord is full of good stuff: Black truffles, foie gras, wine (and of course good bread). I'm welcoming you to discover that by a experience that will put you in the heart of the action.

Notre hôte nous a raconté l histoire de la truffe avec grande passion. Le site est superbe , de plus on bénéficie d une vue époustouflante sur Montignac. Nous recommandons sans hésitation cette expérience très originale de la cueillette jusqu à la degustation.

Nice experience overall. Met at the truffle market with the host. He guided us around the market and explained how to choose the right truffle so we bought few to take home. Just to be aware if you want to have truffle market experience they are only Wednesday’s and Saturday’s. So plan accordingly. The host take us to foie gras farm store close to domain. So if you want you can buy it. It was not cheap and I price wise more then in any markets around Sarlat though. Also there was some free time between market visit, truffle market and dinner so I would advise you to book tickets to Grotte de Lascaux that is 5 minutes drive from domain. We have not booked in advance so we did not get there, so would advise to book in advance.! After that we went to domain and had dinner prepared by host using truffles that were hunted. Overall will recommend this experience. Will say that experience was a little overpriced.

This is an absolutely lovely experience Stephane and Svetlana run a beautiful bed and breakfast and the Airbnb experience. We tried both the traditional method of truffle hunting using flies and then the modern experience with Quinn (their adorable dog) who was super efficient. This was followed by a home cooked meal with the truffles that were hunted earlier in the day. It's a must do in Perigord or Dordogne.
