Agrotourism in Greece

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA) Tourism in the countryside is being promoted in Greece. New measures – including efforts to upgrade the “agroktima” (farm) sector and the creation of a new accommodation category to be added to the “xenonas” (guest house) label – are part of a wider plan  to create the appropriate legislative framework for tourism in the countryside. The initiatives are also envisaged in view of preparing the National Strategic Reference Framework of investment subsidies under the EU’s Fourth Community Support Framework.

A new web portal (www.agrotravel.gr) to promote agro-tourism in Greece presents interesting aspects of all regions of Greece and informs prospective visitors about options on traditional accommodation, local food, genuine cultural or nature-loving activities, purchase of traditional products, and more.
