Smile Advice on setting up a guesthouse in Spain or Canary Isles

Does anyone have any experience of this or know of any informative websites. We would be focusing on a house party type experience in a rural setting and specialising in painting, creative writing, yoga and singles holidays. Trying to find information on the legal requirements and also whether it is possible to run a small hotel or guest house from a rental property. With the approval of the landlord obviously. Thanks for any help you can give.

I would not bother with the laymyhat forum as most posters in Spain run holiday lets.
To cover Spain is difficult as each Comunidad Autónoma or Autonomous communities have there own rules.
If you have a rental property you part from the permission from the owner you may have to change things or add safety items like emergency lights kitchen equipment etc etc. Personally I feel it would not be worth it for a years or so rent.


Choose which are area you want to live in and then find out about the rules.

You must have the correct insurance cover for paying guests. Fire certificates, which means fire exits, hazard lights, fire doors. Separate kitchen for food preparation etc etc. If you don't do any of those things then only advertise in the UK. A few years ago there was a rash of B&Bs opened in Oliva and they foolishly left their cards in the Tourist office. The police paid a visit and only one was legal and the rest were closed down. Everyone suspected that the legal Brit. had pulled the plug on the rest.
