Of course, another important relationship to us is that of our guests. If we hadn’t worked so tirelessly to provide a seamless customer experience, we would not have built a pool of repeat guests or attracted new guests every year.

This in turn provides our owner partners with maximum rental income potential. Our aforementioned partnerships with other local businesses have really helped us strengthen our customer experience, while also allowing us to promote these fantastic people to our guests.

Our growing business partnerships

In the last few years, our guest services teams have really supercharged the customer experience. Not only have they perfected a luxury welcome basket for guests on arrival, but the team also established in-villa services. Furthermore, ongoing relationships with other external businesses mean we can always put our guests in the right direction.

Speaking of our luxury welcome baskets, they are full of locally sourced products to help showcase the businesses and the Algarve overall. Casa Brava, a fantastic company in Loulé, produces soaps with local ingredients in a sustainable way. We also offer beautiful candles from Algarve Candle Company, which are a big hit with our guests.

For guests who like to sample local wines, we also partner with Barranco Longo. Being able to offer these extra comforts really allows us to boost the customer experience and we have these fabulous local partners to thank.

Recommendations to support local business

When guests need a particular service, we are also on hand to provide local knowledge and put them in contact with the best companies.

For example, when it comes to childcare, we cannot praise Algarve Aunties enough. Many of our own team have used their services and they can give you complete peace of mind. Should guests want to hire a car, we are sure to put them in touch with VDL Car Hire.

No matter the guests’ needs, we have established many connections while operating in the Algarve. It has allowed us to become more than just a villa rental agency - we are the trusted tour guides who have all the knowledge our guests will need.

Embracing the Algarve community

As we approach a new year, we will certainly continue to work with fabulous businesses in the Algarve. It means we will be able to offer guests even more insights and help them experience local delights!
