President’s letter


…promote Galicia as the first level tourist destination which we are

At the end of 2016 we saw the need that existed in Galicia for owners of tourist homes to have their own voice, given what was already an obvious reality, globalization, the widespread use of the Internet to plan holidays and, above all, the change in preferences when choosing where to stay on holidays, created a new typology of accommodation that had come to stay.

Since that date we have been defending the interests of this new collectivity, with a long tradition in Galicia, which was incorporated into the tourism regulations of the Autonomous Regional Government of Galicia in 2017, helping out associates in their legalization process and supporting them in improving the quality they offer to their guests.

We are pleasantly surprised with the interest of the owners of tourist houses in Galicia, since the number of associates has not ceased to grow. They are the true protagonists of this new kind of tourist attention that shows the richness, diversity and culture of Galicia, showing the best of our land and of ourselves.

For all these reasons, from Aviturga (Galician Association of Touristic Housing) we will continue working on projects that help the development and professionalization of our hosts and, also, to establish partnership with all the institutions, organisms and companies whose objective is to increase the number of people who visit us every year and to promote Galicia as the first level tourist destination which we are.
