May holiday in an agriturismo in Italy
May is an ideal month for a holiday in an agriturismo. Temperatures are usually really pleasant, not too hot, so you can fully enjoy the spring sunshine. Our agriturismos are situated in the country, surrounded by nature. In May, everything is in full bloom, and nature is at its most spectacular, with abundant spring flowers dotting the lush green hills. I - Margot – have selected the most charming agriturismos for you, the perfect setting for a lovely May holiday in Italy.
What is an agriturismo?
An agriturismo is a working farm that offers holiday accommodation in the form of rooms, apartments, or both. From bed & breakfast rooms to a luxury villa or apartment, or a restored country house. It may have a restaurant (serving local specialties), and these are usually also frequented by the locals. An agriturismo is beautifully situated in the country, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Most agriturismos make olive oil and wine, and sometimes they grow grain and vegetables too.
Savour the products of the season
The food in Italy is spectacularly good, all year round. Enjoy it at your agriturismo’s own restaurant, or else at one of the many restaurants to be found close by. Here you can enjoy farm-fresh seasonal products. In May, asparagus is in season, tomatoes and courgettes. And the freshly harvested strawberries and cherries are used to make lovely fruit pies. And the owners of the agriturismo will be happy to point you to good, child-friendly restaurants where you can get a taste of the local cuisine.
Famous cities and picturesque villages
A May holiday in Italy has other advantages. There are relatively few tourists. The May holiday is therefore ideal for exploring a city near your agriturismo. Visit Milan, for instance, Rome, Siena or Florence. Take your time for a delightful stroll and have lunch at a historic café, al fresco. No need to wait long to be served. And it's not just the cities, little villages also have lots to offer.
Fun facilities for all ages
Are you taking a family holiday in May in Italy? Good choice! Because our agriturismos are small-scale and often have fun facilities for young and old. The swimming pool is usually already open in May. Some agriturismos have a heated pool. You can also filter the agriturismos to find the ones with a separate paddling pool. An agriturismo is situated in the countryside. That’s why there is always lots of room for playing. They often have a soccer field, tennis court, and/or playground. Some properties have farm animals or their own restaurant.
Discover the surrounding area
Italy has thousands of miles of hiking paths, leading you through every kind of landscape. From the foothills of the Alps in the north, the wine regions of Tuscany, to the hills of Sicily. Put on your hiking shoes, or hop on an e-bike. Some agriturismos rent e-bikes. These are usually electric mountain bikes that give you a further range for outdoor explorations, with less effort. The owner of the agriturismo will also gladly point out the best places with activities for children.
