We would like to invite you to come and join us at the Valea Verde weekends dedicated to the good things in life – fine dining, fine wines and Transylvania‘s incredibly beautiful nature. For several years we are hosting Truffle Hunting weekends in Cund now and Transylvania is becoming more and more renown for its huge amounts and excellent quality of truffles!

Apart from being terribly elusive and mysterious, truffles actually taste really good and are rightfully an important ingredient in the classic cuisine of most western advanced culinary cultures!

The truffle hunting weekend begins with a relaxed three course dinner with seasonal specialities at the Valea Verde on Friday night, where one might get to know fellow hunters! After a good nights sleep and a leisurely breakfast, we head at 11 h to the forest, where our truffle hunter is giving an introduction on the nature of truffles, the principles of finding them and presents his dogs. Then we will spend 2–3 h in the forest to hunt Transylvania‘s black gold!

Once back at the Valea Verde, we will have a light lunch of Antipasti followed by a classic truffle dish and take the afternoon of to regain strength for the evening. At 19.30 h we invite all participants to gather at the Valea Verde for a small round of drinks and canapés, before we will to savor the days finds during a five course truffle dinner! On Sunday we will start the morning with an extensive breakfast also with some truffles, before its time to bide farewell and return back home – or start another day another day at the Valea Verde if you care to stay longer….
