The truffle hunting was a dream of mine quite for a while. And I m so happy that we have chosen Les Pastras. Amazing organization, beautiful views, cute dogs and a lot of delicious truffles 😋. Truffle ice cream is a bomb 💣. Now I m looking forward to bring my family and friends to this place. Strongly recommended. Writing and feeling a smell of truffle .. 😍

Visiting Las Pastras with friends on Christmas Eve was a highlight of the year. Las Pastras is pure joy and Johann was an exceptional guide / educator for our truffle hunting adventure. Johann demystifies and makes truffles accessible. I left with a new found appreciation and love for the not-so-humble mushroom.

The tour was very intimate and engaging. Johann explained all the different aspects of the truffle industry and then gave us a hands on experience of the hunt! To end the day we received deliciously crafted appetizers to truly understand the aroma and taste of truffles. Johann was a wonderful and charming host. We left with sore cheeks from joyful laughter and bellies full of truffles and champagne. P.S. the custom made truffle ice cream is what dreams are made of!

From the booking to arrival to the hunt and then the tasting, this was such a wonderful experience. Johann was a fun, engaging guide even noticing when our 5-year-old was starting to get antsy and coming up with "tasks" for him to do. We loved getting to meet the dogs and learning so much about truffles. And then the tasting - delicious! Would definitely recommend.
