The agrotourism farm is located at Kalambaka-Thessaly, covering an area of 13 acres, relatively flat. The present study is concerned with the landscape architecture of the farm, the design of independent non-formal Tourist Accommodations and the design of a central building for catering and agricultural production processes with small scale drying and distillation facilities.
This multifunctional farm will have: a) arable land, b) vegetable capital and c) catering, training, demonstration and monitoring of the production process and processing. The main productive occupation will be this of aromatic plants and fruit trees.
The agritourism farm is composed by individual parts in a pattern of curved and oblique paths, in order to enhance the feeling of wandering and touring within the complex. The lake is the central landmark. The central building on the east side acts as a filter and a visual barrier to the adjacent noisy property.
The Multifunctional Farm orientation will be Agricultural with minor actions related to Environment, Culture and Gastronomy. The multifunctional farming training activities will include climate change prevention or adaptation actions, cost-cutting methods and production techniques, processing and marketing of agricultural products, actions for the sustainable management of natural resources (soil, water, energy, etc.), protection of biodiversity and the environment, Mediterranean diet, nutrition and health prevention, tasting etc. The farm’s daily practices will be compatible with the environmental protection and rational use of natural resources.
