If you seek unique experiences while traveling, agritourism is a choice that will fill your life with new thoughts and special moments during your vacation time.
The demand for agritourism is growing and travelers are more and more interested in the origin of the food they eat or interested in growing their knowledge of the cultural habits of each country.
A trip to agritourism destinations offers you the opportunity to get even closer to nature and to participate in activities such as helping with the wine harvest, experiencing a more substantial contact with the animals of the area, tasting local products for breakfast, or even making a fresh loaf of bread or traditional cheese.
Some even more interesting adventures are the visits to farms, agricultural work in collaboration with the community, farm museums, walks in corn mazes, cooking lessons of traditional food, etc.
The need to unplug and enjoy a simpler lifestyle is a fact!
These are the 4 accommodations that will give you the opportunity to experience agritourism through the eyes of not just a traveler but a visitor who listens and mimics to a large extent the daily life of each culture.
