Autumn break in an agriturismo in Italy

Time for that autumn break! Extend your summer before winter sets in. If you want to be sure of an unforgettable time, book an agriturismo in Italy! The mild climate, the gorgeous food, the enchanting places to visit, and the hospitable people. Throw off humdrum routine!  I - Margot – have selected the most atmospheric agriturismos for an unforgettable autumn break in Italy.



What is an agriturismo?

An agriturismo is a farm that also offers accommodation for holidaymakers, rooms or apartments, or both. It might be a bed & breakfast, or a luxurious villa, or a renovated house in the country. It may have a restaurant too (serving local specialties) that is 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 also grow grain and vegetables.  

Autumn: wine harvest and olive harvest

In short: tranquillity, space, and conviviality. Also in autumn, because that is an important time of year for many agriturismos you will find the wine harvest (September/October) and olive harvest (October/December) in full swing. It is really fascinating to see how these products are made. That is the charm of an autumn break in Italy. 

The most delicious regional cuisine

Autumn is the time of year for many special ingredients that make Italian food so special. Scour the markets for fresh mushrooms to cook a lovely funghi pasta. Or a pumpkin for a tasty soup. You don’t want to cook on your holiday? There are usually several cosy restaurants to be found near your accommodation, where you can savour the best local dishes and sip noble wines. That's what makes an autumn break in Italy extra special. 

Agriturismos within reach of Italy's beautiful cities

The properties we have selected for you are small-scale and not that far from Italy's famous cities. In summer, these tourist hotspots may be a bit crowded for a really relaxed visit. In autumn, you have room to saunter across piazzas and wander along cobbled alleyways. The radiant autumn sun completes the picture. Autumn is also a good season to enjoy Italy’s rich culture and art. The long summer queues in the museums have melted away. In autumn, you can usually just walk in. 

Experience nature

Autumn in Italy is splendid. A perfect time of year to get out and about, and take lovely walks in the beautiful Italian countryside. You can rent an e-bike too, and enjoy nature to the full in the open air. At the reception they will gladly show you where to rent an e-bike nearby. Some agriturismos even have their own e-bike rental service. 

A comfortable agriturismo, also for your autumn break

After an eventful day of discoveries, there’s nothing better than to retreat into the comforts of your agriturismo. Time to relax on the terrace or in the garden of the agriturismo. And if it gets a bit chilly, you can relax indoors. Because the interior too is an important factor in our selection of properties. Warmth and comfort are guaranteed at any time of year!
