Closely associated with the rolling hills, picturesque villages and stunning scenery of the Tuscan region is the idea of living and experiencing ‘agriturismo’, or ‘agricultural tourism’ as it is commonly known amongst Italians and tourists alike. Agricultural tourism is the opportunity for visitors to Tuscany to experience a Tuscan working life in traditional Italian style, and what better way to do this than a stay in a rented Tuscany farmhouse.
Situated amongst some of the prettiest villages in Italy, there is a wide range of Tuscany farmhouses to choose from regardless of whether you are staying in a large group, family or couple. A typical farmhouse in the Tuscan countryside can originate from the early medieval era, and although not all original features will remain intact, visitors could be lucky enough to cook in vault kitchens, relax by huge feature fireplaces, admire the natural stone features and walk around on the cool terracotta floors.
Visit San Gimignano, Buonconvento or San Leo Bastia to find the perfect Tuscany farmhouse accommodation with the added bonus of a private or shared swimming pool, being close to local shops and traditional restaurants but still having the tranquillity of a private holiday home. What’s more, a traditional Tuscan farmhouse in surrounded by many acres of land so you will have ample opportunities for al fresco dining and big barbeques.
If peace and quiet is not what you are looking for, and you are not keen on that ‘home from home’ type of holiday, lap up some luxury and choose from a wide range of Tuscany Hotels. You will be spoiled for choice regardless of whether you are visiting a city, town or village in Tuscany.
