Agriturismo in Tuscany
Agriturismo also known as agricultural tourism or agritourism gives visitors the chance to experience true rural Tuscan life. In essence working farms have opened their homes to offer rustic to elegant accommodation. Generally based on or around a farmhouse villa, winery or castle, these are often family-run operations which offer accommodation that range from bed and breakfasts to large apartments and separate buildings that include living areas, kitchens and private bathrooms. Many farmhouse hosts help organize activities for their guests, from horseback riding to mountain biking and provide information on local hiking trails as well as offering Tuscany cooking classes and wine tastings. Due to the warm Tuscan sun, many farmhouses have recently added swimming pools to their properties to offer their guests the opportunity to cool down.
