Car access to Agriturismi

We decided to enjoy « the real Italy » during our stay in Sicily by adopting exclusively Agriturismi for lodging (with exception in Ortigia). Anyway we are fed up with hotels of all kinds and we made a lovely experience with Agriturismi in Northern Italy. But there is potentially one problem: To access Agriturismi one has to have the car, hence we are renting car with Hertz for the whole duration of our stay. I remember to read somewhere that the renters in Italy are forbidding to drive on non-paved roads (probably the insurance wouldn’t cover any problem). When I choose the Agriturismi the criteria were the beauty (and yes there are real jewels), authenticity, … but certainly not road infrastructure. I suspect that there will be the cases where the access is via non-paved roads (we privileged the secluded countryside places).

How to deal with this in respect to the car rental? Anybody have experience with this?

Agriturismi are located in the countryside. Some will have access via paved roads, and some will not.

I can't recall this ever being an issue.
