An Authentic Tuscan Experience
If you are wondering what the term “agriturismo” actually means, here is some history! Tuscany has always been an agricultural region since very ancient times, dating back to Roman times. A large part of the region’s economy is still based on farming and cultivation of the earth. Over the last 20 years, many abandoned farms and rural homes across the region have progressively been restored and converted to offer rustic as well as elegant accommodations in the countryside.
Most agriturismo are in really outstanding locations, with wonderful panoramic swimming pools and views and provide a quantity of services to guests, from bikes for rental, children’s playgrounds, guided tours, wine tastings, cooking courses, and a special location for special events, such as a wedding. Keep in mind many are working farms, so they also produce wine, olive oil, jams, honey and many other products.
Choose the ideal accommodation for you: farmhouses usually offer charming rooms in B&B style or cozy apartments fully equipped with every comfort so that you can have more independence. Choosing an agriturismo will also give you the possibility to taste wonderful and delicious homemade products and traditional Tuscan cuisine as many also have a restaurant on the premises and offer their own products. Staying at an agriturismo or farmhouse in Tuscany will offer you an authentic Tuscan experience!
