Why Agriturismo?

The agriturismo activity by law must be an integration to the income deriving from agriculture, in our case the vineyards growing, which must be the principal income.

Agriturismo is a receptive activity mainly aimed at increasing the value of life in the countryside and of its old roots and traditions as well as to prevent rural buildings from being demolished.
It was thought to make young people to get back to rural life to exploit its wonderful resources.
There are many different kinds of Agriturismo, with restoration or without, offering a b&b service or camping areas or other facilities; only farmers or people working in agriculture can open a real agriturismo, because they mainly live on the income coming from their work on their land.

If you want to know more about the matter, just look at specific sites on “Legislazione nazionale e regionale agriturismo “.

We have many cooperation agreements with local taxi companies in Caldiero and can rely upon them for cars, vans or buses; in case they shouldn’t have any of them because of too much traffic, especially in summer, we can call taxis from Verona.
