However, the full details and scope of the law are yet to be released. We’ll post here again once we hear more about it. In the meantime, you can read more by visiting

    I have just done a little e-book in Kindle called Holiday Rental Law in Spain 2013. It has real up-to-date information about the changes and takes an inspired guess and how the new laws will pan out using the Catalan model. It is also critical of the big websites who are not really cooperating. It is only about 32 pages but is one of the best you will find on this subject. Highly recommended for the management of the big holiday letting sites.
