The Var has a wealth of architectural and heritage wonders waiting to be discovered during a stay at our hotel. But nature has its own surprises in store, and one of these is the truffle, which has aroused the curiosity of enthusiasts and gourmets in the region and beyond since the end of the 19th century. The village in the Provence sky, nestling between the Verdon gorges and the Mediterranean coast, is located in the Aups region, a major black truffle area in France. 

So, while you're on the road, set your sights on gastronomy at the table at L'OrangeraieThe Var truffle restaurant is the place to be for delicious dishes. Sheltered by the splendid glass roof or on the terrace in fine weather, recipes based on the black pearl of the Var region are served all year round. The dry, hot climate, the average altitude of the Var department and its limestone soil are the ideal ingredients for the development of truffles. They are the object of much envy, but the game is worth the candle.

The underground empress in the spotlight at La Bastide de Tourtour restaurant

In winter, the king of mushrooms reveals a dark brown heart, while in summer its finely marbled flesh turns white. As the seasons go by, the chef and his brigade work this rich local produce with passion, skill and creativity. They create a cuisine that reflects the flavours of Provence. Grated into shavings or strips to preserve its texture, added to creamy sauces for subtle flavour, it also infuses oils for delicious seasonings. A luxurious, noble touch that envelops the palate from starter to dessert, including dishes such as risottos, meats and pastas.

A sensory journey awaits you. The exceptional view of the Massif des Maures from our Var truffle restaurant, the umami flavours and aromas of the land make up the score for a memorable experience.

For centuries, truffle growers have been engaged in a confidential quest, much to the delight of the region's restaurateurs and their guests. At the foot of the truffle oaks, the truffles are dug up and passed from the forest to the plate, almost untouched.

While the tasting promises unique and exceptional sensations, the visit to the Aups and Verdon Truffle House allows you to discover the secrets that remain. A museum dedicated to the black diamond of Provence, the site reveals the history of this mysterious mushroom. A great activity to enjoy with the whole family, for example, after a delicious meal at L'Orangeraie, our truffle restaurant in the Var. There's more than enough to go round!
