Holiday Makers Spain & Andalusia June 2018

Non Hotel Tourist Accommodation in Spain

These statistics show the supply and demand for holiday accommodation in June 2018 both nationwide and in Andalusia. More than 12.2 million overnight stays are great news for property owners interested in short term lets. This is slightly down on last year, but still shows strong demand.

Broad Stroke Figures Nationwide

The national statistics for overnight stays in non-hotel tourist accommodation are down by 3.8% in June compared to the same month of 2017. Yet, even so, numbers exceeded 12.2 million in June 2018
Figures may be marginally lower for several reasons including staff strikes at airlines and the heat wave which is affecting many countries this year.

Tourist apartments

Overnight stays in tourist apartments decreased by 8.1% in June. Those of residents decreased by 5.2% and those of non-residents by 9.0%. The average stay was reduced by 4.8% compared to June 2017, standing at 5.3 overnight stays per traveler. In June, 37.9% of the places offered by the tourist apartments were occupied, 7.1% less than in the same month of 2017. The occupancy rate by beds on weekends stood at 41.2% , with a decrease of 5.8%.

These figures are further broken down into Resident and Non resident occupancy of accommodation.

Overnight stays of residents decreased by 0.3 % and non-residents 6.0%. The average stay is 4.3 overnight stays per traveler. During the first quarter of 2018, overnight stays decreased by 2.9% with respect to the same period in the previous year.

Visitors to Andalusia – both Residents in Spain and Non Residents in Spain showed healthy figures in June 2018, up year on year to those of 2017. 2018 has been a success for many owners who offer short term lets.

It goes without saying that our advice when buying a property is to also take into account the short term holiday market and depending on where you buy your investment property, also consider the business community who make overnight stays for business purposes.

Rural Tourism Inland Andalusia

Statistically, the Spanish National Statistics Institute looks at 2 categories that affect ordinary small investors: Tourist Accommodation which is coastal usually – for example Sotogrande, and the rural sector, such as Jimena de la Frontera.

Accommodation Makes Money in Andalusia

Demand for Accommodation in Andalusia

Both Residents and non-residents alike enjoy coming to Andalusia with its rich diversity and sunny weather. Be it hotels or privately owned properties in Coastal or Rural areas, statistics from the Spanish Statistics Institute, (INE), show Andalusia is popular all year round.

As you can see from the infographics for February 2018, visits to Andalusia from abroad were up on the same time last year, at 11.08 days. 582,686 tourists spent an average 1,140 euros over their stay.

Profitability of the Hotel Sector

Andalusia has an annual growth rate for the hotel sector of 3.99% compared to 5.44% annually, according to data released in Feb 2018 by the INE. The average daily rack rate is calculated at 65.83 euros, with revenue per room availability at 35.07 euros. This is up by 1.64%. Of this, the highest growth has been in one-star Hotels, (10.74%) and one-star Guesthouses (12.17%). It seems people want to stay longer and for less money. This indicates good returns in under exploited markets such as rural properties inland.

Profitability of the Tourist Apartment Sector

As the infographic illustrates, there were 17,078 apartments, which is up compared year on year to the same month of 2017. As you’d expect the estimated figure for bed places was also up on last year at 65,941. The number of guests was down at 127,913 but the number of nights they were staying showed an increase at 4.2 days on average. Nationally, the largest number of non-resident visitors was the UK, followed by Germany.

Rural Tourism Indicators in Andalusia

Rural Tourism figures were a little down on last year, with 16,377 guests staying on average 2.24 days. Estimated bed places and apartment availability was up. Average cost was 139.63 euros, or approx 33.25 euros per night. This offers very good returns in relation to the buying price of these properties.

It is a legal requirement for establishments to be registered with the Junta de Andalucia Tourism Department. This can be either as a full time business registered with Social Security payments and complying with disabled access requirements – Casa Rurales – or the more flexible category of rural accommodation – Viviendas Rurales –

Registration as Casa Rural means the person registered as owner or manager can offer touristic pursuits – guided tours, cookery classes, etc, whilst the Vivienda Rural can only offer accommodation, not activities as well. And only for a finite number of days, not all year round, unlike the Casa Rurales. Even so, this equates to being able to rent it out almost every weekend. Also, if you get a holiday-maker who wants to stay for longer, you can put them on a different letting contract and this lease does not count as part of the weeks per year.

There are some great rural properties out there, at prices below what they should be. There are also commercial outlets with accommodation that can be turned into very attractive propositions for the holiday maker market. Get in touch with us now and we can organise a no obligation tour of some of the rural areas and visits to various properties that are on the market at terrific value.

Cow and Calf Seek Shade in Bolonia

Cow and Calf Seek Shade on Bolonia Beach Costa de la Luz Andalusia

Cow and Calf Seek Shade on Bolonia Beach

This cow took her calf to cool down by the water’s edge in Bolonia and came across a deserted parasol. She hunkered down offering shade to her baby calf , meanwhile surprised onlookers crowded around to take photos. The cow began to feel uneasy with all of the attention and by the time the owner of the parasol came back, about five minutes later or so, the cow and calf had been frightened off. The parasol owner had to catch up on the whole experience via video streams and photos. This was an unforgettable experience for all who witnessed it, adding a touch of the surreal to a hazy, hot day.

Bolonia, on the Costa de la Luz, is about 15 minutes from Tarifa where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Mediterranean. This particular beach is popular with day trippers because of its natural beauty and its oneness with nature. Every once in a while it attracts the local bovines, too. But not usually as boldly as this occurrence on 1st July 2017. It’s not unheard of to see cows on the beach and social media are awash with such images. In general, though, cows roam around the country lanes, and don’t usually venture onto the beach when a lot of humans are there.  This video link was recorded by Pedro Fernandez and syndicated to ABC Andalucía.

Andalusia is a wonderful autonomous region of Spain and it is always popular with holiday makers and locals alike. Unsurprisingly, it draws people from all over Spain and beyond. This breed of cow, pictured here, Retinta, is very common. These dark brown cows can be seen wide and far in the fields and hillsides, from sleepy rural inland villages to remote beach side resorts.

Bolonia is a must see destination with the most complete Roman town ruins yet uncovered in Spain just a short distance away. Do yourself a favour and put it on your ‘to do’ list. The place can be seen in a day if you are on holiday and there is some wonderful accommodation available in many distinct places: Algeciras, Tarifa, Alcaidesa and Sotogrande as well as rural villages like Jimena de la Frontera, San Pablo de Buceite and Gaucin. Bolonia itself has guest houses and hotels which fill up fast in Summer, but with a little planning all is possible. Although you’ll need to be lucky to see a cow and calf seek shade like this.
