Italian "Agriturismo"

Rural-Tourism

Rural Tourism is a growing phenomenon worldwide.

Sometimes it is haphazard. It has been entertaining to watch the fortunes of the state of Wyoming fluctuate with the whims of Hollywood -- "Brokeback Mountain" and "City Slickers" each contributed their share.

Other times it is supported by a substantial policy infrastructure. Agriturismo is a serious tourism endeavor in Italy. Try Agriturismo.net (selecting the box for "Disability Access") for a glimpse of just how developed this niche is there.
