"NEW THIS AUTUMN IN THE LUBERON!
AUX DEUX FONTAINES (in Vaugines) LAUNCHES ITS ‘TRUFFLE WEEKENDS’

It will soon be truffle season! From 15 November to 15 February, Aux Deux Fontaines offers you its unique gourmet discovery weekends.
An unforgettable stay at the heart of one of the most delightful villages in Provence, which will allow you to discover the “rabasse”, as this exceptional fungus highly prized by gourmets and top chefs is known in the region. To give it its scientific name, tuber melanosporum is the queen of the Vaucluse and more specifically the Luberon.
The weekend will therefore begin on Friday afternoon going on a truffle hunt with Benjamin, the truffle grower, and his dog Lady trained to sniff them out from afar. You will roam the truffle patch in their company while the first explains to you how to look for them and the second shows you where to find them. You will learn all about this little rare and highly sought-after gem.
On returning to Aux Deux Fontaines, enjoy a short time for shopping or relaxation and then meet for dinner at La Petite Maison de Cucuron where Eric Sapet, who has had a Michelin star since 2009, will have concocted a special truffle-based menu for you.
Our beautiful Luberon is also a major wine- and olive-growing region. On Saturday, two visits are organised for you to perfect your knowledge of wine and olive oil. First of all, you will be welcomed at the nearby Château de Sannes. A historic 17th- and 18th-century estate, the building is one of the finest examples of Provençal architecture. Acquired in 2017 by Pierre Gataz, delicious organic rosés, whites and reds are now produced there in a state-of-the-art fermenting room. An explanatory tasting will follow the cellar tour. Then, you will be welcomed at the Bastide du Laval’s Olive Oil mill, which produces oil for the Elysée Palace (among others!), where they will explain to you when and how the olives are harvested and the manufacturing process for all the oils. You will be able to taste them to choose the one most pleasing to your palate.
The evening will end at Le P’tit Resto in Vaugines on the village square, where Caroline and Benoit have been delighting residents and visitors for years... one of the worst kept secrets on the regional fine dining scene. It is virtually impossible to book a table whatever the season!
On Sunday, you will have free time to visit the surrounding villages and enjoy the beauty of the Provençal landscape before setting off to other, perhaps greyer climes.
