AGRITURISMO OR FARMHOUSE IN ITALY?
Agriturismo literally means tourism on a farm. A real country break between vineyards, olive groves and fruit trees. For several years there is a legislation that an agriturismo has to demonstrate that a certain amount of production is actually consumed by the visiting tourists. Some farmers want to avoid this regulation and then choose to call their farm for example a Country House or Podere or Casale. In the almost 20,000 agriturismi in Italy there is much difference. From simple to luxury and almost all with a pool. From small producers to those that have many many hectares. One thing they do have in common: within the farmhouse space for guests is created. This can be some rooms, but also apartments or cottages scattered across the grounds. Often home-grown local dishes are offered to the guests. Usually the owners are very proud of their company and products. An agriturismo is a real adventure.
