ABSTRACT

In most part, the tourist sites are now constituted, in entities somewhat broken by traditional traditions and occupations, by the local specifics, which can only have negative effects both for the present and especially for the future. Keeping a rural world, with everything that is significant in economic, social, cultural, aspect involves the initiation and development of this form of tourism. In parallel with the agrotourism development process, have amplified the elements of infrastructure, cultural elements, as well as those related to traditional occupations (including artisans) that have become attractions factors in rural area.
Generally, tourism can participate in preserving the viability and stability of rural localities, where the phenomenon of depopulation manifests itself obvious by leaving young people to urban areas and abandoning old households and lands.
The meeting between rural area, a particularly fragile environment with the dynamism imposed by the tourist phenomenon rise the problem of risks appearance generated by the reorganization. However, we can say that agrotourism must become an alternative to the problems of agriculture and of the rural area. In this context, we can consider that the development of agrotourism, connected with the evolution of agriculture, can be a solution, which can have a very important contribution to the development of the rural, not only in financial terms but also in social terms. Exploiting the resources of localities and rural areas through agrotourism involves the implementation of some individual measures with various benefits, aspects that we intend to detail in the paper.
