Truffle Weekends with Aux Deux Fontaines

New this autumn in the Luberon! Aux Deux Fontaines, in Vaugines, is launching its "Truffle Weekends", a stay/package of 3 days and 2 nights in a charming guest house, around truffles, olive oil and wine. Cellaring, tastings, educational visits.

Truffle season is almost here!

From 15 November to 15 February, Aux Deux Fontaines is offering you its original weekends of gourmet discoveries.

"Enjoy an unforgettable weekend in one of the most ravishing villages in Provence and discover the ‘rabasse’, this exceptional mushroom sought after by gourmets and great chefs the world over. The Tuber Melanosporum, by its scientific name, is the ‘queen’ of Vaucluse and especially Luberon.

The weekend will begin on Friday early afternoon with the ‘cavage’ (truffle hunting) with Benjamin, the truffer grower, and his dog, Lady, which has been trained to sniff truffles at a distance. You will walk around the truffle patch while Ben will explain the ropes and Lady will show you where to find the magic mushrooms ! You will learn why it is such a rare delicacy.

This outing will be followed by a little bit of shopping or relaxation at Aux Deux Fontaines before dinner at La Petite Maison de Cucuron where Eric Sapet, one Michelin star since 2009, will prepare his most exclusive truffle menu.

Our beautiful Luberon is a great region for wines and olive oil as well. On Saturday, you will visit both a winery and an olive oil mill. First, Chateau de Sannes, a historic estate dating back to the 17the century and perfect example of Provençal architecture. Red, rosé and white wines are produced in their brand new state-of-the-art cellars. The visit will be followed by a tasting.

After a quick lunch of your choosing, you will be welcome to La Bastide du Laval mill. This is where the olive oil of the Elysee Palace is produced ! You will be shown around and the team will explain to you how oil is made. You will get to taste all the different types of oils produced on their premises.
