This paper analyzes the supply of an important form of non urban tourism, the so-called agro tourism, together with providing a detailed literature review of the various stages of a tourist product life cycle. A theoretical econometric model of these life cycle phases is then presented. Finally, suggestions are proposed about the contribution of private and public sectors, and the strategies political institutions should follow in order to sustain and promote agro tourism.
