The Konavle Agrotourism Association was officially founded by a group of enthusiasts in 2010 with a clear concept and a new strategy for the economic development of Konavle. Today we are the bearers of most of the activities of rural tourism development in Konavle and we gather more than 60 members, bearers of agrotourism offer and potential entrepreneurs. From the very beginning, the Association has been functioning professionally and continuously implementing programs aimed at developing and promoting the rural development of Konavle. The Association of Agrotourism Konavle carries out all activities with the relevant institutions in the Republic of Croatia, and its partners based on previous good practice and cooperation. The development and promotion of rural tourism in Konavle, the southernmost Croatian region, greatly encourages positive economic, social and landscape development and management.
