Case study: RURALQUAL and the overall experience

Sandra Loureiro and colleagues (Francisco Miranda and Elisabeth Kastenholz) have examined the perceived service quality in rural tourism context and the overall experience, as well as the emotional interrelationship between rural owners and customers that lead to intention to return and/or recommend to others. The research shows that a pleasant surprise together with a participative and immersive experience inside and outside the rural lodging enhance the attraction to the destination and the behavioral intentions. The work has influenced managers of rural lodgings and regions in Portugal and Spain.
