This paper aims to examine a particular structure of Italian hospitality business, the holiday homes (“case per ferie”), and to show how they can now play a leading role in sustainable tourism.
For this purpose, after an overview on the concept of sustainable tourism and on measurement models proposed by academic literature and international institutions, we examine the hospitality model of “case per ferie”, highlighting the functions they perform for the guests and for the territory.
The methodology includes the study of sources in the literature and the results of a direct survey.
