An “agriturismo” is a farm or other agricultural venture offering holiday accommodation – and the ideal base for experiencing the woods, valleys, flower-filled meadows, vineyards and mountains of Ticino.
Nature lovers, especially, will be enchanted by the experiences on offer at these “agriturismi”: holidays that are not only relaxing but also stimulating, promising direct contact with day-to-day rural life. Children can watch the animals close up, learn to milk cows or goats, and even make cheese. Grown-ups appreciate the tranquillity, as well as delicious local produce such as cheeses and salami, vegetables, fruit and honey. Active guests can go on extensive horse rides, while those with energy to spare can get first-hand experience of working life on a Ticino farm – hosts are always happy to have a helping hand for the odd day.
