'Agriturismo' is the name for a holiday accommodation on an estate or farm in Italy, often in the middle of a vineyard or olive grove or the wheat fields. Sometimes they are estates or farms that are still in operation, but because the farm life no longer yields much, many companies have started an agriturismo in Italy next to it. In addition, more and more Italians (but also other nationalities, including the Dutch) are buying up such an old farm to convert it into tourist accommodation.
These accommodations vary from simple to super-de-luxe and, of course, the price also varies. For a week's stay, count on 300 euros for the simplest stays to more than 1.000 euros for the more luxurious stays. It makes a big difference whether you want to go on holiday in the low season or in the high season. It is often nice for the children if there is a swimming pool and if there are several apartments, so that other children can also be found in high season.
At some farms it is possible to work with the family on the farm during the stay. Picking fruit, or vegetables, watching the wine being made. Breakfast is usually included, but you can also eat there in the evening. At the simple agriturismi people usually eat what the pot is about, the more luxurious ones also have a menu from which you can choose. The wines and olive oil that are used often come from their own garden and are usually for sale.
