Rural accommodations in Andalusian cave houses for the Day of Andalusia achieve 100% occupancy, reservations on average for two nights and last minute bookings by Spanish clients, especially families and groups of friends.

The nearly 12,000 cave houses in Andalusia for rural tourism maintain the upward trend in the number of reservations.

The promoter and promotion executive of the Andalusian Association of Rural Tourism in Casa Cueva, Natalia Guidoni, explained to Efe that this figure, follows the path of recovery that already achieved during Christmas thanks to the increase of  internet promotions.

Guidoni has described the occupancy figures recorded on the bridge  predominately last-minute reservations, and has detailed that the majority are two nights and that, on the third, reservations fall to 65%.

The client profile is Spanish, with the majority being Andalusian, especially families or young groups of friends who seek to rest, disconnect, in a rural environment enjoy a  barbecue and activities that complement such as horseback riding, making bread or visiting museums.

One of the peculiarities of the caves is that they maintain a temperature between 17 and 20 degrees throughout the year, which is offered as another attraction.

Andalusia brings together 80% of the caves that exist in Europe, most of them built on hills in the 19th and 20th centuries, a sector that receives an average of 50,000 visitors annually.
