Gardening Services

The external landscape is one of the first things that can be seen when you approach your property. The stunning quality of the external surrounding areas was most likely one of the features that appealed to you on your first visit and maybe one of the deciding factors in your eventual purchase. So naturally, you would want to keep these looking this beautiful all year round.

The Algarve is famous for its mild winters and over 300 days of sunshine, which means that outdoor space is very important in order to make the most of this glorious weather. Every time you come to stay, be it in the summer or winter, you will want to enjoy this allure that the Algarve is so famous for, whilst surrounded by all your property’s outdoor areas at their best.

Our contractors are highly experienced in providing top quality gardening services so you can rest assured that they will keep your lawn looking vibrant and all your ornaments and outdoor furniture in their optimum condition.

Pool Cleaner

Having a swimming pool is a wonderful luxury that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Whether it is to have a splash around for a bit of fun, to keep fit or to relax and unwind whilst floating around on a lilo catching the sun, it is a fantastic feature to have in an Algarvian property. However, pools take a lot of time and knowledge when it comes to maintenance and if you don’t have the right equipment, this can prove very tricky.

You have to maintain the right amount of chlorine as well as the correct pH levels; the pump needs to be on for a certain amount of hours in the day (dependant on the time of year); the bottom needs to be ‘vacuumed’ and the surface skimmed with a net… the list of things to do is endless. All this when all you want to do is turn up and enjoy the pool! This is once again where we can help.

We have a team of knowledgeable pool cleaners who know exactly what they are doing when it comes to keeping the water in your pool at its peak level as well as the pool in its best condition. 

Our team will ensure that every time you want to use your pool, you will be welcomed by nothing but clear water and a perfectly maintained aquatic environment.

Security

Once you have invested time and funds into the purchase and furnishing of a property, you then want to have the peace of mind that all of this is safe and secure.

What you need is a team of experts who can keep a watchful eye on your assets and deal with any such alerts that may eventually occur.

Our team of security specialists are on hand to deal with all aspects of security within your grounds. They will maintain all the systems and ensure that whether it is an animal that has set off an external sensor, or a battery problem, all situations will be dealt with in an efficient and professional manner.

House Cleaning

We all know that housekeeping plays an important part in maintaining a house in its optimum condition.

In order to avoid things such as damp and mould, it is important for dwellings to be aired out and maintained. However, this is not always a straightforward task as it is not just a matter of leaving windows open as this would create excess dust and security sensors could be set off. Also, weather conditions need to be considered as part of this process.

It is necessary for someone to physically enter the building on a regular basis to do this job well so that the rooms can ‘breathe’ and the property gets as close as it can to a ‘lived-in’ effect. In doing this, all the aforementioned issues that we sometimes hear about can be avoided. Of course, then there are the inevitable cobwebs, general dust and rainwater that leaves marks on your windows and shutters. All these factors create a need for both interior and exterior house cleaning.

At Your Luxury Property, we can recommend you a team of highly efficient house cleaning professionals who, as part of a dedicated cleaning company, can do all of this – all year round. Then, all you need to do is arrive, turn your key in the door and enjoy a perfectly maintained clean and fresh environment.

Bills and taxes

Although it seems straightforward enough to simply set up direct debits for bill payments, it is not always as simple as that.

First there is the matter of utilities where providers simply estimate your usage and seldom do an actual physical reading of your meter. Then, these estimates are often inaccurate and time consuming to put right when you have been overcharged.

When it comes to taxes, these are communicated via the post (and electronically if you sign up for it) but then need to be paid by a certain date to avoid penalties. 

In order to pay some of these bills, you are given reference numbers to be used with portuguese online banking or portuguese cashpoints (multibanco). Again, time consuming and an added unnecessary worry.

Instead of having to deal with all of this on a regular basis, let a trustable person deal with it all for you and simply receive one invoice at set intervals that you can settle in one swift transaction. How easy is that?

We pride ourselves in the exceptional levels of service we provide to our clients and our recommended property management service is no exception. We always aim for the highest standards that are expected and give every aspect of your investment the utmost attention to detail.

When you engage our services, you can be certain that you are buying into a premium product and that we will treat your asset with proficiency and the utmost respect.

For more information, please contact our team of dedicated representatives who will guide you through the simple set-up process. Then, you will be able to simply sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
