The data IRPET 2011 did record a +12.6% in Tuscany tourist arrivals compared to only 3% of the entire Mediterranean area. The 2012 season is still uncertain, and at this time is very risky to make predictions about. It ‘still hoped that European households prefer apartments or houses to rent self catering, instead of the more expensive hotels. The trend in 2011 marked a strong presence in the tourist villages located a few kilometers from the Tuscan coast, at the expense of proper maritime places that have experienced a sharp decline due to higher prices clearly by virtue of proximity to beaches and a growing competition from holiday and farmhouses located in the hills overlooking the sea.
A good lifeline for our pockets is certainly represented by the category of farmhouses in Tuscany. Many of these are located about 30 minutes drive from the sea and allow you to combine a holiday in the country with food and wine tourism and beach holidays. To meet the needs of users of the web right now are reading our blog, we want to give guidance in respect to prices. A family of 4 persons can stay in a farmhouse a few miles from the coast from euro 570 per week in high season. The rent of apartments with kitchen allows families to enjoy a pleasant vacation with the crisis. This type of holiday will give families the opportunity to cook and eat in the apartment on the veranda in front of the pool, perhaps with a spacious garden where children can play. The prices of our rentals are cheap and for this reason many of our customers are accustomed to book 2 week holidays in Tuscany.
