Growing demand for apartments in Andalusia

In September 2011 Andalusian apartments, as well as rural hotels, hostels, campsites and other guest facilities, which are not included into the "hotel" category, have significantly increased in demand. In total the number of overnight stays in Costa del Sol villas, apartments in Seville, farmhouses in Cadiz and other regions of Andalusia increased by 8% compared to September 2010. These data were presented in the report of the Spanish National Institute of Statistics.

Against the background of growth in the number of overnight stays the increase in the number of tourists is even much higher. So, by 9.5% more travelers compared to September 2010 chose to stay in the Andalusian private sector. Thus, in September 2011 by 17.000 more tourists rented accommodation in private houses and family hotels of the region.

The total number of tourists, who chose to stay in private tourist guest facilities in Andalusia, was 200 831 people.

The average length of stay in the Andalusian campsites was 4.05 days. This indicator is higher than the last year's figure (3.87 days in September 2010), but still doesn’t reach the average Spanish number of 4.77 days.

Nearly 119 000 people chose to stay in Andalusia apartments in September 2011. For the same period of the last year the number of tourists in Andalusian flats and apartments was 103 000.

As for whole Spain, the number of overnight stays in the private sector was about 9.8 million. The monthly increase was 10.5%. With these figures Spain can count on return of the interest to its beach resorts.

In the recent years rural tourism, ecotourism and cultural tours began to dominate in the tourist sector. This trend can allow keeping the rate of growth in demand for rental of private real estate in Andalusia, as major hotel chains are concentrated mainly along the coast, in big cities and famous resorts.
