Day two could be the most adventurous of them all. We’ll run with the dogs on an early morning truffle hunt galivanting through the Provencal countryside before returning to our friend’s farmhouse to learn all that there is to learn about the elusive tuber. Armed with endless champagne and rosé, we’ll indulge on truffle hors d’oeuvres, charcuterie, local cheeses, truffle ice cream and truffle honey and even have an olive oil tasting of the farm’s own oil.
Following the hunt & tasting we will enjoy a picnic of local charcuterie, cheese & local specialties with all you care to drink rosé or red wine.
Afterward, we’ll visit a beautiful nearby village to learn the finer points of pétanque (boule) - the favorite game of France - from an expert. We'll enjoy his homemade pastis and wine and nibble on traditional Provençal snacks as we learn the rules of the game. He’ll teach about the history and show you how to handle a boule like a pro before separating into teams for several rounds of championship pétanque. The winning team will be awarded a commemorative trophy while the losers will have to kiss the fanny.[gallery ids="8257,8266,8256"]
