Leaving routine behind without spending too much money, that is the idea most of the people think about. Indeed, nowadays we need to escape from our day-by-day, but, due to the current situation, it is a must to be careful at spending money. Rural tourism is a good choice to balance up both wishes.
Rural tourisme offers its environmental calm and an unique contact with nature, both yearned by those used to traffic jams and city rushes. It is not only the best medicine against stress and tiredness, but it is an affordable cure, since many of the proposed activities in a rural area, such as hiking or cycling, are free. Moreover, there is an important advantage when looking for accomodation, because there are many alternatives, from hotels and campsites, to rural cottages. This very last option presents a large range of possibilities, due to it is possible to rent rooms or rent the entire cottage.
Renting a room usually includes having breakfast, so it is very similar to a Bed and Breakfast. Probably, activities may be offer in the same cottage, and its renters can ride a horse through the surroundings or can start a nearby excursion.
When renting the whole cottage, it is important to take into account its size, because they usually offer numerous rooms for a big group. In this case, the whole cottage is available for the group, including the kitchen, as if it was an appartment. Intimity is an advantage, but at the same time there is a loss of comfortability, because it is the group who has to cook or clean it up.
