From the city to the country
Leave the city behind and come and take part in the country way of life. Would you like to take part in activities such as tending the animals, discovering what organic cattle farming is, harvesting, making cheese, becoming a shepherd for a day, etc.? Agrotourism can be great fun. Combine your stay in rural accommodation with tasks that are typical of this setting. Learn about the way of life in these areas and be part of their traditions. We offer several proposals in inland Spain and we tell you where to book the activities.
Horses in the Roncal Valley. Navarre
Family watching a horse
Shepherd with his flock
Vineyards in San Carlos del Valle. Ciudad Real
The wine harvest festival, shepherding, cultivating vegetable gardens, tending animals… Come and enjoy the most "natural" side of Castile-La Mancha. At the end of your holidays you'll be able to boast about taking part in aromatic and medicinal plant workshops, learning how to make liquor, learning how to make bread and cakes in a Moorish oven, and peeling and toasting saffron, because there are companies that organise these types of activities.
And if you prefer to stay in a rural house that specialises in agrotourism, there are also many options. Some of them will suggest ideas depending on the time of year: wine harvest and wine making, pig slaughter, oil recycling (to make organic soap) and visits to mushroom fields. Enjoy life in the countryside!
