Farmhouse Holidays in Italy
Agriturismo is the main type of Agriturismo.net If we talk about a Farmhouse, we immediately think of environments furnished in rustic style and surrounded by greenery, we can almost smell the scent of freshly harvested fields and their fresh products, the taste of a good glass of wine and that one of olive oil on a roasted slice of bread.
Specifically, the Farmhouse is the estate offered by the farmer who uses his property as accommodation to supplement his farm income. The law defines as "agritouristic activities" the reception and hospitality activities carried out by agricultural entrepreneurs through the use of their own farm, in a relationship of connection and complementarity with the activities of cultivation of the fund, forestry, breeding of livestock, which must however remain main". It is therefore a structure whose main activities are those related to the agricultural world, then to the processing of the land, to the collection of its fruits and to the breeding of livestock, but which has been adapted to tourist reception.
Despite many of these structures still retain the rural aspect of the past, they are equipped with every comfort, some of which are far from the true rural life. In fact today it is easy to find Farmhouses with swimming pool in Italy or Farmhouses with Restaurant and other types of services, while keeping alive the activities and traditions related to the rural world. Usually the Farmhouse offer apartments equipped with independent services, often offering breakfast or half or full board treatments that bring seasonal products, of their own production or of local farms. Most of the accommodations are located in original structures, renovated to preserve their original architectural forms, with thick stone walls, exposed wooden beams, roofs and terracotta floors. Cool in summer and cozy in winter (as long as the fireplace is on!), the Farmhouse is the ideal accommodation for couples, families and groups of travelers in Italy.
The purpose of the Agriturismo is to recover a closer relationship with nature, with artisanal production methods, with culture and local people. For this reason, many agritourism structures offer various activities, such as participation in the processing stages of products, such as wine, oil, cheese, cooking calsses for those who prefer a Food and Wine Holiday in Italy , bike rental for paths on trails or the riding for a horse ride for those who want a Sporting Holiday . Choosing an Agriturismo means approaching a rural world made of ancient traditions, handed down from generation to generation and crafts that seemed destined to disappear, enjoy a genuine and familiar welcome and the quiet of the countryside.
