What is Italian ‘Agriturismo’?

Accommodation like no other for breaks with family, friends and loved ones

 

Where better to escape day to day life than the Italian countryside?

The phrase ‘agriturismo’ translates directly to ‘farm stay’, or farmhouse in more colloquial terms. Agriturismo has become a popular style of holiday for those seeking a relaxing Italian getaway for a reasonable price.

Following a decline on profit in farming nationwide in the 1970s, farmers began to transform struggling estates into food and drink destinations to allow holiday goers a unique holiday experience with a taste of rural Italian life. The beautiful landscapes are home to multiple vineyards with farmland spanning the horizon. 

Many villas across the country now include pools and a collection of playgrounds for children with a more communal feel and often offer Wi-Fi to cater for the modern day traveller.

A highlight of this kind of holiday is the collection of local food produce available to try and cook with, such as regional salamis, olive oils and wines from local vineyards.

For a full taste of holidays to Italy, agriturismo is a must for top quality food and a sense of escape.
