ASSESSING THE AGRO-TOURISTIC POTENTIAL OF BANAT HILL AREA

PETRU-EUGEN MERGHEÅž

Abstract


Agro-tourism means valorising natural landscape, lodging offers, and services supplied by rural households and agro-touristic farms with the aim of getting an income. Agro-touristy households get basic incomes from agricultural activities, while part of the incomes are from agro-touristic services. The coordinates of sustainable rural development should start from a triple analysis – economical, social, and ecological. We selected the most representative localities in the hill area from the point of view of economic development and of natural and man-made potential (Fardea,Tomesti and Margina). We analysed the natural, social and geographical potential and tried to present the agro-touristic offer, favouring and restrictive elements necessary for the development of the agro-touristic potential in the hill area. Set and maintained by the demand-offer mechanism and by a proper management, the agro-touristic activities can lead to benefice effects on both the economic and social levels.
