CERTIFIED HOLIDAY FARM ITALY CERTIFIED AGRITOURISM ITALY FARMHOUSE
WHAT IS A CERTIFIED HOLIDAY FARM OF ITALY?
The Agriturist Qualità Seal is awarded to Certified Holiday Farms following a compliance check carried out by an independent body (Nexos s.r.l.). Both the quality control system and the certifying body are members of Sincert (Sistema Nazionale per l’Accreditamento degli Organismi di Certificazione), the official Italian authority controlling the application of all quality standards on goods and services.
The Agriturist Qualità Seal is also displayed on this website, in the entry presenting the Holiday Farm, as shown:
This quality control system is based on a protocol made up of three stages (Communication, Management and Relations with the surrounding environment). In total, it comprises 72 requisites, 46 of which compulsory and 26 optional ones (to be observed at least to the amount of 40%, in relation to the services actually provided by the enterprise).
Where the criteria are met, the agritourism enterprise is added to the Agriturist Qualità Seal Register, and is entitled to use the Seal on any advertising material. Should the enterprise fall short of these requirements, the Holiday Farm is notified and issued with a request to rectify the situation. If the changes can be verified after a time, no further check is required. In the event of more serious instances of non-compliance, a further inspection is warranted. The annual attribution of the “Agriturist Qualità” Seal is also dependent on feedback regarding quality provided by guests to Agriturist.
The Agriturist Qualità Seal may also be attributed to other farms of Italy offering accommodation to tourists, though in possession of an different license that of Agritourism. (These may come under the heading of Country House, Bed and Breakfast, Country Hotel, etc.).
