Checking availability at agriturimos & etiquette

I'm wondering what the best approach is to checking availability at Agriturismos? Email is obviously the easiest, but I don't know how reliable that is. What is a normal response time?
If I call, from when in the morning to when in the evening is it ok to call? (It gets tricky considering the time difference.)
If the write ups of the places say they speak English, is it safe to believe I will be able to call and speak to someone in English?
Thank you in advance.

every Agriturismo is different - some will answer e-mails promptly, w/ others it is like pulling teeth.

I would e-mail first and if no answer in 3 or 4 days - then I'd call.

We always use the e-mailing system. It's easy and reliable - and we're able to keep a record of the 'conversation'.

Within a few days we get all the answers and information we need to make a choice...
