  • English
    • The region of Sainte-Alvère, historic stronghold of the Lostanges, constitutes the western tip of the Périgord Noir. It is a very hilly region whose most calcareous slopes are the area of the truffle. Until the 1960s, the region was a major producer of truffles. For almost 30 years, the Sainte-Alvère market has offered many buyers a quality truffle controlled by quality commissioners.

      In order to enhance this rich heritage, an interpretation trail, accompanied by a permanent exhibition at the Sainte-Alvère tourist office, was created and introduces the general public to the discovery of the "black diamond".

    This is the perfect place to go to start your visit. We came here to find a hotel and the staff were very helpful, and we received a map and some ideas on what to see.

  • "Small office, but nicely done"

    3 / 5 Reviews posted by mitch w (Bordeaux, France) on 17/07/2020

    I bit difficult to find, due to the winding streets in the old town. But staff very friendly, lots of information on the city and surrounding areas.
