It was a fantastic achievement for the team, having also won multiple categories at the Algarve Business Awards too.

Following discussions between the 2024 judging panel, we are thrilled to reveal that the team successfully held on to the title for the second year running. This is truly an honour and shows that dedication truly pays off.

The annual Luxury Lifestyle Awards is an international award ceremony providing luxury brands with recognition for their overall excellence. The objective of these awards is to recognise excellence across the whole range of property industry sectors and maintain the highest standards in the industry worldwide.

The Algarve’s popularity continues to soar

With recognition like this, the Algarve’s rising popularity refuses to slow down. As the region offers a diverse range of activities, so many tourists can find a fulfilling holiday here. As an example, comparing 2023 to 2021, we have seen a 63% increase in traffic from the USA. These emerging markets will only continue to grow.

For this reason, it’s vital that owners who are considering villa rentals start planning now. It is the perfect time to capitalise on the ever-growing positive attention the Algarve is getting worldwide. Of course, it’s important to find a villa rental partner who understands these audiences.

Approaches to travel are constantly changing, so it is important to always adapt rental and marketing strategies. Tailored content that is unique to different audiences is important so that varied audiences take notice. Whether it be golfers, remote workers, large families or couples, identifying the right audience for your property will guarantee steady rental income.
