The land is so peaceful and quiet, you might think it was deep in hibernation. But that impression is deceptive: This is the time to devote yourself to the essentials of this dreamy region. A fire crackles in the fireplace, ducks and geese are processed, and the Tuber melanosporum—also known as the Périgord truffle—the finest and most expensive in France, ripens under the oak trees.

Truffle hunt with Erik

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After a delicious morning meal, set off with Anna to visit Eric, a truffle expert who will passionately explain Périgord's most famous product. In contrast to Piedmont, where truffles are searched for in the wild, truffle plantations are established in Périgord.

Eric is one of the pioneers who created an organic truffle grove, and he will be happy to share his extensive knowledge with you. Together with Eric and his talented dog, go looking for truffles in his picturesque plantation. In Périgord, truffles can be found all year round.

Afterwards, an opulent lunch menu awaits you at the home of Eric's wife, Nadine, featuring the fresh and noble Périgord truffle in all its glory.

FAQs

Treten Sie als Reisender vor Reisebeginn zurück oder tritt er die Reise nicht an, so verliert Ventura den Anspruch auf den Reisepreis. Stattdessen kann Ventura eine angemessene Entschädigung vom Reisenden verlangen. Dies gilt nicht, sofern der Rücktritt von Ventura zu vertreten ist oder wenn am Bestimmungsort oder in dessen unmittelbarer Nähe unvermeidbare, außergewöhnliche Umstände auftreten, die die Durchführung der Pauschalreise oder die Beförderung von Personen an den Bestimmungsort erheblich beeinträchtigen; Umstände sind unvermeidbar und außergewöhnlich, wenn sie nicht der Kontrolle derjenigen Vertragspartei unterliegen, die sich hierauf beruft, und sich ihre Folgen auch dann nicht hätten vermeiden lassen, wenn alle zumutbaren Vorkehrungen getroffen worden wären.

Ventura hat diesen ihm zustehenden Entschädigungsanspruch in den nachfolgenden Stornopauschalen festgelegt. Die Berechnung erfolgt unter Berücksichtigung des Zeitpunktes des vom Reisenden erklärten Rücktritts bis zum vertraglich vereinbarten Reisebeginn, der zu erwartenden Ersparnis von Aufwendungen und den zu erwartenden Erwerb durch eine anderweitige Verwendung der Reiseleistungen. Die Entschädigung wird nach dem Zeitpunkt des Zugangs der Rücktrittserklärung bei Ventura oder dem Reisemittler wie folgt berechnet:

a) allgemeine Stornopauschale (in Prozent des Reisepreises):

Für Buchungen im Reisetarif CLASSIC: bis 65 Tage vor Reiseantritt 20% ab dem 64. bis 30. Tag vor Reiseantritt 25% ab dem 29. bis 15. Tag vor Reiseantritt 45% ab dem 14. bis 7. Tag vor Reiseantritt 60% ab dem 6. Tag vor Reiseantritt 80% am Tag des Reiseantritts und bei Nichterscheinen 90%

Für Buchungen im Reisetarif FLEXI: bis 65 Tage vor Reiseantritt 0% ab dem 64. bis zum 45. Tag vor Reiseantritt 10% ab dem 44. bis zum 30. Tag vor Reiseantritt 20% ab 29 Tagen vor Abflug sind die Stornogebühren identisch mit denen des Tarifs CLASSIC

b) besondere Stornopauschale:

Sonderangebote/Specials, individuell ausgearbeitete Pauschalreisen sowie Gruppenreisen können besonderen Stornierungsbedingungen unterliegen, auf die in der jeweiligen Leistungsbeschreibung bzw. Reiseausschreibung/Angebot und der Reisebestätigung nach Art. 250 §§ 3, 6 EGBGB ausdrücklich hingewiesen wird.

Ventura behält sich vor, anstelle der vorstehenden Stornopauschalen eine höhere, konkret berechnete Entschädigung zu fordern, soweit Ventura das Entstehen wesentlich höherer Aufwendungen als die jeweils anwendbare Stornopauschale nachweisen kann.
