Winter in Algarve - winter lettings in the AlgarveThere is a brand new website promoting winter lettings in the Algarve: www.winterinalgarve.com. The site contains lots of information about spending winter in the Algarve and home owners can advertise their property for letting.

Advertising on the site is free. The purpose of the site is to attract more guests to the Algarve in the quiet season, thus promoting the Algarve as a year round destination. It also contains a section that explains home owners how to rent out their property, as they often underestimate the perks of winter lettings.
Though revenue is likely to be lower than in summer, the typical winter guests stay longer and are often pensioners or early-pensioners that take very good care of a property.

WinterInAlgarve is for now only available in English under the .com and .co.uk extensions, translations to Dutch with the .nl extension and German with the .de extension are foreseen for April 2017.

If you’re looking to keep body and brain active whilst still having ample time to enjoy the Algarvean lifestyle, (current opening hours are Mon to Fri, 10.00 to 16.00 - unlike 24/7 for bar/restaurant type businesses), then this could be for you!
We still enjoy running the business and would very much like to continue, but unfortunately neither of us is getting any younger and the physical aspects are getting a bit beyond us, aaaah!

CLIENTS PLEASE NOTE: THE BUSINESS WILL CONTINUE AS USUAL, (may improve!), NOT LEAST AS THERE WILL BE A HANDOVER PERIOD OF UP TO THREE MONTHS AVAILABLE TO THE NEW BUYER, SO ANY CHANGE WILL BE SEAMLESS.

Giants Windows - customised solutions for individual situationsGiants Windows was founded by Katja Paweletz and Franz Adebahr in 2007.

Franz Adebahr arrived in Portugal in 1999, to work for the first PVC manufacturer in the Algarve. Franz completed his window technician qualification 36 years ago, in the ‘old days’ when PVC was still in its earliest and more challenging stages.
In 2009 Giants Windows received a licence from the German company Sunflex to manufacture Sunflex systems.
