Responsible tourism: Algarve luxury 4 bedroom villa in Portugal

Environment

As part of our commitment to our customers we strive to do all that we can to ensure that your stay in one of our luxury villas will cause as minimal impact to the environment as possible. This commitment includes carrying out regular first-hand inspections on all of the properties on our portfolio and forming strong links with our destination partners and villa owners in order to encourage the use of environmentally friendly products such as low-energy and LED lighting, A+ class electrical appliances, blackout blinds to keep the villa cool and reduce the need for air-conditioning, the use of as few harmful chemicals in swimming pools as possible, and stringent recycling practices. Guests can rest assured that in the construction of the villa, where possible, the latest building technology available has been used to ensure that the most up-to-date lighting and insulation practices have been used, allowing for the property to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter, again negating the need for air-conditioning, which although available in the property, is encouraged to be used sparingly.

Upon arrival at this luxury villa you will receive a welcome information pack which will include advice on how to make your stay as environmentally friendly as possible. This pack will include information on limiting towel and linen changes, responsible use of air-conditioning and other utilities, responsible water usage and step-by-step advice on recycling using the bins provided locally.

This particular villa has been designed with large windows which let in the light through the day to negate the need for over-usage of lighting in the property and an electric pool cover which keeps the pool heated to a pleasant temperature and negates the need for pool heating.

This villa is located within walking or cycling distance of all amenities including shops, restaurants and bars, meaning little to no need for car travel, and we encourage our guests where possible to use public or group transport. As part of our concierge service we can also provide hybrid car hire options should guests wish to venture further afield. As a company we believe environmental responsibility starts at home (and the work place of course). We encourage recycling of waste as a company and as individuals, we use as many energy saving products in the office as is feasible, and where possible for business use we use public transport. In addition to this, when producing and distributing pre-departure information documents to our customers we save valuable paper by sending these documents electronically as opposed to printing and posting.

Community

Our commitment to the communities in which our villas are located is as strong as our commitment to the environment surrounding them. This includes solely using local management companies which provide excellent employment opportunities in the area. We also solely use local service providers, meaning all pool cleaning, gardening and general maintenance services are provided by local people who rely on the tourism pull of the area. Maids and any house staff, including chefs, butlers or drivers, will all be local Algarve residents.

Furthermore, as part of our concierge service, we have built up tremendous relationships with a wide variety of local service providers including local water-sports companies, local nanny services, local transport companies and local entertainment providers. Where possible, we only use local providers and avoid large conglomerates, ensuring that all proceeds from these services are filtered through directly to the local communities.

Upon arrival at the villa you will find a welcome information pack that not only provides information on enjoying your stay in the most environmentally friendly way possible, but also first-hand advice on the best locally-owned restaurants, bars, boutique shops and convenience stores. We encourage our guests to shop locally, and provide information on the best places to find locally-sourced fruit and vegetables, including markets and local wine merchants. Your welcome food package which is included in your property rental will include locally-sourced produce which has been hand-picked for your convenience and enjoyment.

Our team of dedicated and experienced destination experts make it their priority to have an extensive knowledge of the areas in which our luxury villa rentals are found. We ensure that all information provided is beneficial to the local communities and we can provide insights on the cultural etiquette of the area and traditions which should be observed whilst visiting, along with advice on where to buy souvenirs and goods (to ensure the proceeds are going directly to the vendors).

Our valued customers are an essential part of our community and we endeavour to uphold our commitment to them by providing only the most accurate and helpful information which will enable them to uphold their own commitment to the environment. By creating strong relationships with our overseas partners we can ensure that we are providing the very best for our customers and that they can rely on us to keep our side of the responsible travel agreement. As a company we, along with our sister company, support numerous charities and NGOs both nationally and internationally, including Surfers Against Sewage and the RSPB. We make it our firm mission to give back to the world what we take from it.
