Sleeping in a beautiful cottage, cooking typical products after you’ve collected them, sampling the most delicious freshly-made breakfast you’ve had in your life, being in contact with the animals on a farm, looking at the stars. If you like all these ideas, you surely are an agro-tourist!
In Spain you’ll find plenty of accommodation that offers activities associated with agro-tourism and which are also set in impressive natural surroundings.
Spain boasts wonderful rural and ethnographic heritage. You’ll find that each town has its own distinctive farming, cultural and linguistic traditions. Spain’s
National Rural Network is a platform that aims to promote this rich heritage by offering different experiences.
If you like rural tourism, you can choose from country house lodges, rural apartments, country hotels, hostels, holiday villas, campsites in the countryside, and educational farms for children, to name but a few.
In each area there are also typical places to stay such as farmhouses in the Basque Country and Navarre, “pazos” in Galicia, traditional Catalan farmhouses, guesthouses in Extremadura, agrotourism farms in the Balearic Islands, rural tourism centres in Castile-León, and country houses in Asturias.
Agrotourism usually includes other activities too, such as artistic routes, walks at night to go stargazing, massages, adventure sports, and many more. Thanks to Spain’s excellent climate there are activities all year round.
