This study considers rural tourism an activity that is playing an important role in the local development of many inland shires, with notable future potential both as a means of complementing agricultural income and as a way to create employment in disadvantaged inland areas. The co-operative philosophy is presented as ideal for getting these activities underway; whether under the agricultural co-operative format –already widely known in rural areas-; or in the form of associated work co-operatives or community land exploitation. The article shows the experiences in this field and this business format in the Valencia Autonomous Region, explaining the main defining features.
