What to do when it rains during a rural tourism getaway?At Naturaki we welcome the rain! A rainy Sunday can be a day well spent with a little imagination. A rainy day cleans, waters the fields and fills the landscapes with green. It is necessary for crops, forests and nature, but let's not fool ourselves: when we have planned a weekend of rural tourism with family and friends, a rainy forecast can make our plans falter.
Today we suggest 8 plans for a rainy Sunday afternoon while you are on rural tourism. So you can enjoy the time no matter what. To take shelter from the rain by the fireplace. To get your faces wet and enjoy yourselves like when you were kids! Either way, don't let the rain stop you!
1. Bring back board games
Forget technology for a while and gather around the table. There are countless possibilities: from Uno, to more strategic games like Catan. Either way, the point is to laugh and have fun. If you need ideas, these board games are the ones we like the most.
2. Go mushroom hunting
It must be time, of course. But nothing better than going out to sharpen your view through the woods after a rainy morning. Chanterelles, milk-caps, grey-knight mushrooms.. we have plenty of them here. When you get home, a good mushroom sauté for dinner and you will have had a most rewarding day.
3. Look for snails
The best times to find snails are in the evenings of warm, humid spring days, especially after a good shower, as they move around better on damp ground. During the colder months it is also possible to find them, but you will have to look for them in the cracks of walls. In any case, they are always where the sun's rays do not reach them directly.
4. Jump into the puddles
Remember when as a child, you jumped with delight into puddles? Well, recapture this innocent and pure essence and jump in! If you have children let them enjoy this little pleasure and most of all, enjoy it with them.
5. Sofa and blanket in our homes
The sofas in our cottages are spacious and comfortable. Ideal for a cold rainy afternoon, by the fireplace. A good movie, a good book, a good conversation, or a good time of silence.
6. A pool and table football tournament
Many of our charming houses have billiards, table football, ping-pong, darts... All the ideal entertainment for rainy days. You can make the most of it, young and old, to set up a tournament and think of a good final prize. Let's play!
7. Improvise a massage session
You don’t have to be a professional. A good massage is always good to bring down the revolutions we bring day to day. Wether you are a couple, friends or family, you have many options: you can create everything from a romantic atmosphere in the room surrounded by candles to a massage train facing each other if you are a group and thus ensure that everyone can receive a few caresses.
8. A cooking contest
If you enjoy cooking, this will be an ideal time to do it. We have rural houses with professional kitchens ideal for the most gourmets. You can cook with a free theme - that is, let everyone cook what they want - or choose a theme. For example: the best potato omelette, the best way to prepare a tapa of octopus, different ways to prepare some bravas, pastries and above all... imagination and hunger for power.
Enjoy your rural tourism getaway, don't let the rain stop you but let it serve to discover new plans!
