Agritourism in Italy
There are many genres of agritourism in Italy, but an Italy agriturismo is basically an Italian farm that produces and sells food and offers hospitality to guests, either in the form of a restaurant or holiday accommodation. The movement for “Agriturismo Italy” is a government backed initiative to provide tax breaks and finance to Italian farm owners who wish to benefit from these agri tourism incentives by opening their farmhouses for holidays and vacations in Italy. Our Le Marche agriturismo is a working farm or or small holding with animals and crops that include fruit & nut trees and a productive olive grove. With our evening meal option we offer guests the option to sample the wonderful seasonal produce from the farm that comes straight from the garden to the dinner table in the form of sumptuous regional Italian dishes.
