Abstract

In the conditions in which we accept the idea that sustainable rural development can no longer rely only on agriculture, in most EU countries agrotourism can become one of the non-agricultural activities, adjacent and complementary to agriculture, to ensure the development of small-sized family farms, sometimes at subsistence limit; agrotourism is primarily a source of additional income for these. The European Union encourages, supports and finances the development of tourism and agrotourism activities in the rural area as rural and farm-related activities. In recent years, in Romania, many tourism and agrotourism programs of national and international interest have been initiated, developed and promoted, funded both from internal (budgetary and private) and international sources, mainly from European funds. An important component in funding the Romanian tourism and agrotourism programs is represented by the European Union funds, namely the structural funds.
