Recent changes in Portuguese Government Legislation have forced private owners to re-assess how they rent their property here in the Algarve.  The decree law 55/2005 states that any “complementary facility”, meaning a private villa or apartment wishing to rent as a “touristic activity or purpose”, requires a license in order to do so.

As part of the license requirement, each property is required to provide tenants with a manual, outlining a health and safety procedure and the correct use of equipment.  Gecko Design Solutions can provide your property with a comprehensive and fully compliant manual in accordance with these laws. 

We can also provide information about attractions, nearby conveniences, maps and local culture in a well presented, illustrated property portfolio - enhancing the appeal of your rental and providing a warm and extended welcome to all your guests.
