Farhood GOLMOHAMMADİ [1]


Some consider second home development as a result of fundamental changes in industrial societies that led to higher incomes, fewer working hours and longer leisure times. It is recognized that the growth of the tourism industry is critical for the sustainable development of the Iranian economy. This is particularly true in the rural areas where employment opportunities are reducing and traditional employment levels in agriculture are in decline. While seeking to ensure that most tourism developments with associated accommodation facilities are located in or close to towns or villages or on tourism zoned lands. Rural areas have long been seen and used as appropriate locations for recreation and tourism activities. However, the restructuring of rural areas and population loss from many areas has meant that tourism as also assumed greater economic and employment importance in many rural and peripheral regions. Second homes are an integral though often neglected component of domestic and international tourism mobility. In many areas of the world second homes, also referred to as vacation homes, cottages, summer houses, recreation homes, cribs and weekend homes, are the destination of a substantial proportion of domestic and international travelers while the number of available bed nights in a second homes often rivals or even exceeds that available in the formal accommodation sector. This article is going to know the influential factor and its effects on development of rural housing and tourism in a selected area which has been used as case study bed on main locations of doing this research namely South Khorasan province in east of Iran and beside borders of Afghanistan, and Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province in south west of Iran. For this purpose, the factors effective on development process of rural housing have been identified by using the existing resources such as theories, internal experiences and experiences of other countries. Choosing the samples of villages has been followed purposive (non-probabilistic) method. Final factors analyzed in the study areas and measuring components of each factor have been introduced. Author in this research found that there is a huge amount of potential for extending rural tourism and second houses in order to accessing sustainable development, increasing well-being and creating job opportunities in these touristy rural regions of Iran.
