Gourmet stays and weekends
Enjoy a Truffle Weekend or a Truffle Stay in Vaucluse to taste the truffles of Provence.
Discover in winter the whole universe of the black truffle, the "tuber melanosporum" also called the "black diamond". Go in search (mid-November to mid-March), guided by a truffle gatherer and his dog.
In summer (mid-May to mid-August) taste the white truffle with its nutty flavor, called 'tuber aestvium' or truffle of Saint Jean.
Château La Roque is situated in the heart of the truffle fields of the Vaucluse and near the truffle market in Carpentras, the reference market for all of France. Château la Roque is the ideal spot to relax after your days filled with discovering and sampling the black or the white truffle.
Head off to hunt truffles with a truffles gatherer and his dog in the magnificent hills of the Vaucluse, the department that produces 70% of the black truffles sold in France.
