Agritourism is simply a new way to discover a country from a different perspective: agriculture. And by agriculture we also mean food and traditions. What is better than exploring France from the inside, learning about its delicious products and its rural heritage along the way? Not only is rural tourism in France charming, but it is also the opportunity to taste delicious and memorable products.
Why choose farm tourism?
Let’s be honest, farm tourism in France sounds highly appealing: it can be a way to escape the city for a few days, enjoy the country air and greenery; it can also be educational for children; and, of course, it is very satisfying for foodies and amateurs of traditional farming. Whether you want to taste scrumptious products or simply immerse yourself in a new living environment, rural tourism in France is for you!
As a bonus side to farm tourism, you know that you are helping farmers by giving them the occasion to showcase their profession, traditions and heritage. It is also a way for them to diversify their activities and benefit from an additional income. Basically, you have fun and you support traditions and ancestral know-how. It's a win-win.
Last but not least, agritourism leaves space for social links. People from different areas and countries get to meet French farmers, learn about their lives and habits, and even share a few words with them en français.
