Authentic Italian Agritourism
Our family has been hosting families of friends from all over the world for generations. We like to think that the good memory of Fano and the Italy they will keep is also thanks to us. If you can no longer think about what to eat and, above all, what to cook, the agriturismo can be again your solution. If you want to add to your intime vacation also moments on which to be 'pampered', you can look for a half board or full board solutions. In this way you will be able to benefit from all types of treatments available at the farmhouse, with breakfast, lunch and/or dinner included. You’ll have the opportunity to fully embrace your holiday and take a break from stove and hoven, choosing to taste the typical products of the farm cooked to art.
The pleasure of hosting and cooking for you motivates us year after year and pushes us to improve our hospitality services. Italian agritourism is an original form of tourism in the countryside that has developed in Italy over the last thirty years. Its unique feature is that it can only be practiced on farms and by farmers, who are its true protagonists. Agritourism, often referred to as agrotourism or farm holidays, has by now become a cultural phenomenon that is spreading to many countries in the world, particularly in Europe, thanks to the great attraction the countryside holds for an increasingly urbanized society. Thus the farm, surrounded by greenery and the rural landscape, becomes a place for a complete but simple rural experience, far from the formalities and bustle of the city. In Italian, the word agriturismo is used both for the phenomenon of tourism in the country and for the tourist farm itself (e.g. “I went on holiday at an agriturismo”). Nowadays, even many foreign tourists prefer to use the word agriturismo instead of one of its many translations. Thanks to agritourism, which today has more than twenty thousand operating farms, the Italian countryside has been able to save a very significant number of valuable historic farm buildings and preserve traditional agriculture in areas difficult to cultivate. A large percentage of tourist farms are in fact located in hilly and mountainous areas where large-scale agriculture requiring vast expanses of land and heavily mechanized production systems cannot be developed. Agritourism instead favours small-scale production systems, integration with the environment – particularly with woods, forests and Mediterranean scrub, as well as proximity to the cities and their art and to ancient towns and medieval or Renaissance villages. Agritourism thus gives its guests the opportunity to observe at close range the places where Italian art originated and developed, and which still preserve many treasures for the visitor to discover.
