Amendment Extends Agrotourism Options for Visitors to Greek Farms

October 14, 2022

ATHENS – An amendment tabled by the Tourism ministry on Thursday will allow wine producers, breweries, olive presses, and cheese producers to expand tour services and provide short-term housing and food on their premises.

As Deputy Tourism Minister Sophia Zacharaki said in Parliament, the amendment improves on and adds existing provisions, adding basic facilities licenses to the operating licenses for tourist visits. The licenses would allow producers to build rooms on the premises and provide meals.

“We offer new, expanded tourist services for eating, and for non-main tourist housing, to all breweries, olive presses, and cheese producers of Greece that have been approved for visitors, and who will receive the permit stickers, as has been done with wine producers already,” Zacharaki said. The purpose is to open the field of agrotourism to more options, creativity, and investments, she added.


Sixty-four percent of American travelers demand comfort and more innovative green options.
