The growing attention of the alternative forms of tourism (ecotourism, food tourism, agro-rural tourism, cultural , social, educational, medical etc) is a fact. The visitor is now trying to combine leisure and relaxation ,by satisfying the need for unique experiences and by coming closer to an environment, free of any human intervention. Therefore, many regions with special characteristics are developing facilities, suitable for the alternative tourist, becoming in that way popular destinations.
This thesis is aiming at the creation of a modern agrotourism complex in the surrounding area of the lake Trichonida. The complex is located outside the the settlement of Sitralonon, which is 30 km away from Agrinion city. The plot is chosen because of the amphitheatrical position, the land suitability (suitable for the chosen cultivations) and its short distances from the city centers of Agrinion and Thermo. The proposal includes the construction of guest houses, laboratories for the elaboration of the products, market place, coffee shop, canteen and farms (grove, vine, honey). It is aiming at the participation of tourists in line production as well as the familiarization of modern ways and means of cultivation. A bond between nature and them is developing.
In conclusion, the complex can provide several advantages or the region: income, employment, use accommodation, activities, natural resource conservation, recreation and education. The tourist, apart form the fact that will get to participate in the production step by step, will also have the chance to visit and learn more about the surrounded areas. He can see at first hand how the history is connected with the land and the residents, how the lake is affected by all these and how important are the flora and fauna that have been developed around the lake.
