Although Taiwan has a proud farming history, the attraction of an office job and city life meant that, in days gone by, many of the younger generation left the countryside for the city. However, with demand for traditional farm-like hotel accommodation at an all-time high, many of the lost generation have returned to their roots, opening farm stays and luxury farm resorts. So for those of you yearning for a few days in the fresh air, here are some of the best of Taiwan’s many farm stays.

Fu Wan Leisure Farm

We’ll start at the real luxury end of the scale with Fu Wan Leisure Farm. It’s an eco-friendly resort with accommodations that, while modern in appearance, fit perfectly within the beautifully landscaped surroundings. The owner’s son designed the entire resort, while another son, trained in hospitality, now runs the resort’s restaurant and kitchens.

Run by three sisters, Hua Lu Flower Home Leisure Farm specializes in growing flowers and plants that they then use to create essential oils. The rooms are very tastefully decorated with a certain fairytale feeling, while during the day you can check out the farm museum that houses some of the tools used for extracting and creating their oils many moons ago.

Sheipa Leisure Farm

Nestled in truly breathtaking surroundings, this is the perfect place for some serious downtime.

    Dakeng Leisure Farm offers a true farm stay experience, as this working farm grows organic produce that they then use in the farm’s restaurant. They also raise their own animals, and you can see the pigs and chickens roaming the grounds. The three sisters that run this farm also cater to the more adventurous with a zip line and some good hikes on the property.

    Qingjing Farm is far and away the most famous farm on the island. Located in lush green rolling hills, the area surrounding the farm is dotted with guest houses and hotels. However, the guesthouse within the farm itself is the most enjoyable especially for kids. Here you can wander the hills with the farm’s sheep, enjoy a horse riding show, or just sit back and breathe in the fresh mountain air.
