A recent survey found that about 86% of tourists are fully satisfied with the holiday in the country house hotels in Italy and are ready to relive the experience.
Italy has a lot of country house hotels. Tuscany is among the top destinations, following Umbria and Campania. The values that visitors most appreciate are three: identity, hospitality and kilometer 0.
The experience inside a country house hotel is decidedly slow, discovering the most authentic values and the bond that man has always had with the earth.
Thanks to the success of this type of tourism, it was possible to recover rural areas and promote the territory. The breakthrough that made it possible to transform many farmers into real hoteliers was made with the new generation of farmers who invested in the old family ruins.
Umbria and Tuscany, thanks to their territorial characteristics and geographic location, are some of the Italian regions with the highest number of country houses. If you intend to visit Umbria, an ideal accommodation facility is La Locanda del Prete in Saragano, in the province of Perugia.
