The best Tuscany agriturismo for families: 11 farm stays you and your kids will love

A handpicked selection to help you pick the best Tuscany agriturismo for families with kids: tried and tested farm stays in Tuscany perfect for kids and grownups.

A stay in an Italian farmhouse (agriturismo) is one of the best ways to enjoy Tuscany with kids.

An agriturismo is a traditional farmhouse repurposed to welcome guests.

They do so in many guises: some operate as a B&B, some have self-catering apartments, some have a restaurant on-site, some offer activities and some allow you to just sit back and relax.

The hosts are sometimes very present and sometimes very discreet and the facilities can be anything from rustic and simple to very luxurious.

A little bit like hotels, agriturismo covers all parts of the spectrum for style and price. However, they all tend to have something in common: the rural location and a strong link with the territory.

Agriturismo or agriturismi (plural) are typical of central Italy and they are the perfect place if you want the freedom and space of a villa and the comforts of having your host on-site.

Finding a family-friendly agriturismo in Tuscany is easy: the choice is endless, so vast that it becomes quickly overwhelming!

I know this from my own experience but also from that of the lovely members of my Facebook Group ‘Travel Italy with kids’ (which you are welcome to join (see below)!
