Rural getaways: the ultimate plan for the summer

Listen to this story

Few pleasures are comparable to traveling without haste. Rural tourism lives its sweetest moment and, as lovers of direct contact with nature, we love that. Waking up in the morning and breathing pure air or living moments of absolute disconnection from everyday-life stress make rural getaways one of the most delectable plans for the summer.

Who doesn't need to escape big-city noise from time to time? The world is full of secret places and small charming villages where you can experience a dream holiday while connecting with your natural roots and savor moments of complete happiness. Local tourism has considerable merit in revitalizing depopulated areas without compromising their original personality.

A vacation without crowds

Uncrowded sites with a rich historical heritage and exquisite cuisine sound like attractive destinations for your vacation, don't they? Although escapes to rural areas are becoming more popular, they are still far from the massive influx of tourists that coastal areas attract, especially in the summer

Thus, rural getaways are perfect if you like discovering hidden gems and less touristy areas. Additionally, your wallet will appreciate this choice. The accommodation price is more affordable, and services are also generally cheaper, without losing quality..

Infinite plans, infinite memories

For many people, rural tourism is a way to hide from the madding crowd. Sure enough, enjoying the silence in a century-old house is priceless, but a vacation in a rural area does not have to be lonely Get to know the surroundings and soak up the local culture!

Rural areas offer dozens of activities suitable for families and large groups, from culture to gastronomy and outdoor sports. Plans––and memories––are virtually endless: excursions to the mountains, trekking, climbing, canoeing, ceramic or other crafts workshops, and gastronomic experiences in unique places. What about having brunch in a vegetable garden?

Traditional and modern at the same time: a perfect harmony

Until some years ago, rural accommodations seemed stuck in the past. Still, today you will find houses where modern architecture and minimalist interior design merge with the most rustic elements.

Additionally, most rural accommodations have all kinds of comforts to make us feel at home, from wi-fi and smart TV to air conditioning and other fully-automated appliances.

Responsible travel: the basis of ecotourism

Ecotourismis not a trend anymore: it has become a life philosophy. So, when we talk about ecotourism, we mean tourism that focuses on preserving the environment and respecting local communities.

Currently, many rural accommodations adhere to ecotourism guidelines, thanks to initiatives such as reusing water, building recycling facilities,using sustainable furniture and promoting local gastronomy

When water is not a problem

Many people prefer coastal destinations in the summer because they want to fight the asphyxiating heat by soaking all day in the sea. But that's not a problem. There's nothing more summery than a pool!

Many rural lodgings offer private swimming pools. In some cases, they even feature natural swimming pools that avoid chemicals (like chlorine)and are biologically purified by the action of aquatic plants.

You will also find a spring, river, lake, or natural pool a few kilometers from your accommodation.

Escapada Rural: the best rural accomodations

Rural tourism constantly adapts to new consumers' demands by reinventing itself. For example, we recently discovered the platform Escapada Rural (@escapadarural on Instagram)which offered one of the accommodations in the region of L'Empordà (Girona) as a location for one of our shootings. As a result, we spent some beautiful days surrounded by nature: we felt so inspired! What an absolute dream for the Hannun team!

Escapada Rural's selection of rural accommodations provides options suitable for all types of travelers. If you are looking for a few days away from the city, explore this platform and find your ideal corner anywhere in Spain and Portugal.
