Every guest has his key for the main entrance, so once they check in they are independent.

Is it true that an agriturismo holiday in not expensive?
In the agriturismo, as in a normal restaurant, it’s possible not to spend a lot if the quality of food and service is cheap, or if you get a set menu upon reservation. Besides the quality, with a choice a ‘la carte’ there is more food consumption and more staff committment, furthermore the agriturismo dimension, concerning restaurant and rooms, is related to the farm dimension, with low limits to be respected. The consequence is that some fixed charges have a bigger impact on us than on bigger structures. To sum up, the prices of a restaurant, a hotel and an agriturismo of the same level, are similar. The decision to do an agriturismo holiday is based on different reasons.
Can everybody open an agriturismo?
No! Besides attending a mandatory long training course, you have to be a farmer with an active farm, where you work mainly in agricultural activities than in the touristic ones. At least the 80% of the products served at the restaurant have to come from the same territory the farm belongs to, and at least the 35% have to be produced by the same farm. The accomodation capacity and the covers are related to the dimension and the typology of the original farm.
