Truffle hunting in Tuscany

Truffle hunting in Tuscany

Proposals for free time to live in nature in Tuscany

In the heart of Casentino, where nature reigns supreme and the rhythm of the seasons marks life, you will experience some of the most vivid and genuine traditions of Tuscany, truffle hunting and fishing in the clear rivers.

You will enter the green woods in search of the precious mushroom, the silence of nature interrupted by the rustling of leaves, the sounds of the woods: the joy of coming back victorious from a truffle hunt is indescribable.

A profound sensory ritual that is part of the rural history of Tuscany: the pungent smell that the truffle gives off when it is detached from the earth, its irregular and wrinkled appearance, the intense and persistent taste it gives to dishes.

In the pleasant waterways around the castle of Porciano you will find a wide variety of fish: fishing is one of the oldest activities in the area, a bond between men and nature, made of peace and contemplation.

In the corners of rare beauty created by the waterways of Tuscany you can try to catch the most valuable prey, the local ‘fario’ brown trout, and enjoy the inimitable flavor of freshly caught fish.

Every corner of the Casentino hides treasures waiting to be found, Castello di Porciano will be your base for a magical adventure that will enchant you with its refined sensorial palate.
