The Ministry of Consumer Affairs announced on Wednesday the opening of an investigation into the tourist houses operating without a permitthat targets the companies and the owners who advertise them, not the platforms they advertise on, according to General Manager of Consumer Affairs Daniel Arribas.

The more than 351,000 homes that INE has collected in its experimental research, with data at the end of February, are 46,253 more than a year earlier (15% increase) and accommodates 1.75 million beds, an increase of 13.3%. The number of rooms per home is approximately five.

As a percentage of the total number of homes in the Spanish state, February figures place early retirement at 1.3%, up from 1.2% a year earlier and 1.1% in February 2022.

This INE statistic only collects data from August 2020, in the middle of the pandemic, when 321,496 holiday homes were registered.

The autonomous communities with the highest concentration of this type of accommodation are logically the most touristy, and the ‘heat map’ drawn up by the INE data sites almost the entire coast in red, except the CAVprecisely.

Andalusia leads this classification by community, with 82,454 houses; followed by the Valencian Community (59,413); Catalonia (52,598) and the Canary Islands (46,784).

In fourth place are the Balearic Islands, with 25,073 early retirement; Madrid, with 19,456, and Galicia, with 17,883.
