At Muchosol we have designed our infographics in order to explain a new phenomenon of Russian tourism to Spain, which is, without dispute, a growing trend. Spain is typically associated with beaches and sun and attracts hundreds of tourists each year, especially from Russia. The number of Russian tourists has been progressively increasing throughout the years. What do they like so much about this country? What kind of vacations do they prefer? Is it just about sun, sand and sea, as some say? With these questions in mind, we have decided to carry out a research.

The holiday rental sector has experienced unprecedented growth in recent years. Tourists consider numerous factors when choosing their accommodation: location, technical features, price, reservation conditions and company reputation are just some of the factors they take into account before making their decision. In most cases, all of this information comes directly from rental professionals.
Beyond the details provided in accommodation brochures, customers currently accord greater relevance to the personal experiences of former guests. Tourists prefer to be able to access first-hand the impressions of families who have already spent their holidays in the same holiday apartment, house or villa.

The period before going on holiday plays a very important role in the end experience of tourists. After all, the starting gun isn’t fired when your guests arrive at your holiday accommodation and you hand the keys over to them. Nobody could deny that as holidaymakers our imaginations start to fly long before we get round to packing our suitcases. And dreaming about new destinations and planning new adventures makes the time to our next holiday pass by more quickly. The search for accommodation, choosing a destination and weighing up the various options available on the market are all part of the holiday experience.

These days, the tourist sector conducts an increasing amount of its business over the Internet. It’s a different situation compared to a few years ago, when many tourists would opt to leave their holiday arrangements in the hands of travel agencies. But thanks to the speed and simplicity of the web, people can now view all types of holiday accommodation using their electronic devices, so you need to know how you can stand out from the competition.

If you’re the owner of holiday rental accommodation, you’ll know that it’s not always easy to catch the attention of tourists and entice them to book your property for their break. There’s an awful lot of accommodation on offer, and it’s difficult to stand out from the rest in the eyes of potential guests. So, what can you do to make your tourist rental home more attractive?

If you own accommodation, you’re sure to be counting down the days until the next holiday period. In Spain, we know that the three main dates are Easter, the summer months and the days around Christmas, as well as some long weekends which may be of greater or lesser advantage to us depending on the autonomous region or the way the dates fall.

Have you thought about the details? Preparing your holiday rental accommodation for your guests
A few years back, most tourists chose to organise their holidays through travel agencies, but these days holidaymakers usually plan their own trips as they please. And when it comes to choosing accommodation, the Internet is the medium that is generally used to get information. So, if you own a holiday rental home, it is worth bearing in mind that your advert needs a nice description and some attractive photographs.

We spend a third of our day working and saving money for the future. But we also deserve a rest now and then, don’t we? Are you one of those people who enjoy a break away whenever they get the chance? Can’t you go ‘x’ months without a short holiday? Then you can count yourself among the 33% of Spaniards for whom travelling is a priority.
Here at Muchosol we include ourselves among that same third of the Spanish population — we believe it’s necessary to travel if we want to discover new cultures and traditions, see wonderful places, and, most importantly, get away from the day-to-day routine and return to our everyday lives with our batteries recharged.
