The Daisy has been an important cultural symbol in the Farmhouse’s world since ever. This rustic flower, so simple and authentic, in the past it was considered an emblem of faithful love and purity. The love we consider here is the love for our territory, Trentino, where our farms live and grow. We are proud of our Trentino. The silhouette of the stunning Alps is the beloved nature we recognize, what make us different in such a confused world, threatened by rapid and disrespectful mass consumerism and frenetic lifestyle. If you feel so badly distracted, we offer you peace, when you come to visit us.
The classification system involving the “daisies” to rate Farmhouses’ quality offer dates back to 2003, when it was added to the 10th Local Law of 19th December 2001. Thanks to this important detail, the Farmhouses (the “Agritur”) can be easily compared to those of a European context. We intend to stress that the Italian Farmhouses’ Daisies deeply differ from the world-known Star classification used to evaluate hotels’ services. The Daisies are assigned by the Municipality of reference according to concrete criteria and requirements. See the list below:
1) Quality and service requirements: heating, accessibility, toilets, cleaning service, accommodation service, restaurant service – accessories such as barbecue tools, signals, laundry, wi-fi spot connection and more. Furniture, typical structure and refurbishment cover also a certain importance.
2) Ecosystem and production: the features of the surrounding nature – panorama, pollution grade, available green areas, cultivation and cattle – are to be ranked according to eco-sustainability criteria (e.g the ICEA Certification for Biologic Farming Activity). The farm, essential to all Agriturs, must possess some qualification too, e.g. for the farm, the transformation of own products and direct selling of goods.
3) Leisure services: spaces dedicated to informative and promotional material, sport facilities or adhesion to some institutional thematic itinerary (e.g. Strada del Vino Trentino); either didactical or recreational activities organized by the owner.
The criteria are given an evaluation according to points 1), 2) and 3). The more complete is the Agritur’s offer, the more Daisies are given to the structure: this would mean the Agritur is able to satisfy several and specific needs. The quality of the service, however, is not strictly connected with the Daisies evaluation. Our aim is in fact to cater for the guests the best way ever, thanks to our capacities and possibilities. In the end, professionality rewards us more than anything.
In conclusion, we invite you to see with your eyes our Farmhouses and to test us. You should try to be convinced!
