Italy Farm Holidays

Discover Rustic Italy

Until recently, few travelers outside the European community have taken advantage of an incredible and unique opportunity, called Agriturismo, to taste and feel the classic pleasures of the Italian countryside. Italy Farm Holidays brings this dream vacation to life.

Agriturismo is a style of travel that embodies working farms offering reasonably priced, rustic to elegant accommodations. Based on or around farmhouse villas, castles and wineries in Tuscany, Umbria and other regions of Italy, these typically family-run operations have accommodations that range from bed and breakfast to large apartments and separate houses with living areas, kitchens and private baths. Visitors can expect a warm welcome and a high level of hospitality.

With more than 30 years of experience traveling throughout rustic Italy, Ralph and Susan Levey, the operators of Italy Farm Holidays, lend their knowledge and experience in a personal way to their clients. They specialize in helping the sophisticated traveler to choose the right farm accommodation for them besides preparing personalized itineraries that truly capture the rural Italian experience.

While the accommodations are unique to each lodging, they all share a characteristic charm and an exceptional value. Rates fall well below the cost of a stay at an average hotel in cities such as Florence, Siena and Venice, yet many of the farms are located conveniently close enough for day trips to these historic cities.

The experience at a farm may include dining with the host family, assisting in the grape harvest, or merely enjoying the intimacy of a retreat, which affords the beauty of its setting as well as privacy and independence from the farm. In addition, the traveler may have the opportunity to pursue individual interests such as horseback riding, painting classes, swimming, mountain biking, hiking or learning about the regional cuisines of Italy by participating in cooking classes.

You can choose your Agriturismo holiday with confidence from Italy Farm Holidays, since every farm has been personally visited by the Leveys. Italy Farm Holidays arranges vacation stays in B & Bs, apartments, houses and castles, at family farms and wineries.
