What is an agriturismo in Tuscany?

While planning their trips, a great many first-time visitors to Tuscany probably ask themselves “What is an agriturismo in Tuscany?” Officially an agriturismo (plural agriturismi) is a vineyard, olive oil producer or other farm that offers holiday accommodation to tourists. Sometimes rural accommodations that are not on working farms are nevertheless referred to, incorrectly, as agriturismi. The accommodation can take many forms but is usually a self-catering farmhouse, farm apartment or Bed & Breakfast room.
