About Golden Triangle Properties
We love everything about the area and are owners ourselves so we know what makes a great villa holiday
We first visited the Golden Triangle area 17 years ago, Rob had always dreamed of buying a villa here....I wasn't so sure, I love the green of the English countryside......now I admit I may have been wrong (yes I thought admitting that was quite amazing too!) and 5 years later his dream came true. We have been coming here as a engaged couple, a newly married couple, couple with young baby and finally mad couple who have two small boys( now 16 and 14), and it never fails not to exceed our expectations.
Our love for the area continues to grow. Sounding a bit like a sickly story, sorry but it's true. It is not just the area, the weather, the food but also the wonderful people we have met. The Portuguese continue to amaze us. Nothing is too much trouble, they love children - in restaurants, bars, pubs, public places, here children should be seen and heard! Their attitude towards life is not laid back in terms of horizontal but it's definitely several notches below our stress run culture and they look good on it!
So some 14 years ago we decided to start up Golden Triangle Properties and now the story will continue....
In partnership with some of the wonderful people we have met we want to offer an outstanding service and first rate properties so that you'll look forward to coming back again...and tell all your friends about us too!

Industry Insights- Why I Love Booking Holidays in the Algarve!
Working in the holiday industry has its ups and downs. Fortunately for me, a lot more ups than downs. I love the industry mostly because I can show you slices of paradise. That's what going on holiday is supposed to be, right?
After working and saving for relaxation time, finally going to that perfect place and living that perfect moment. That's a holiday!
I always ask "what makes the Algarve so special?" to our clients. At first some answer the best golf breaks in Europe, or it has the best beaches. Those are activities, things you do on holiday.
When they think about it, the answer is almost always the same. It's the atmosphere. The air exudes friendliness, relaxation, a certain warmth you don't find in other places.
The people in Portugal are what make holidays in the Golden Triangle the best, and for many, the only holiday destination they prefer.
Our clients, many of whom become our friends tell us no matter where you go throughout the Algarve, or which venue, this is the one thing that stays the same. From the golf courses and resorts to the beaches, and into the mountain villages; it's the Portuguese people that make the Algarve so special.
Discovering new villas to rent for holidays here is important to me personally. We want our clients to see why Algarve villa rentals offer the best value, slice of culture, and luxury they could want anywhere. Our villa partners present unsurpassed quality accommodations. Let's face it, hotels and resort stays are not everyone's idea of holiday. That's part of what makes what we offer special.
Matching people to their ideal location, and booking a small or large mansion for their stay is just fun. Hearing about their adventure afterward, that the villa really added to their holiday time is probably the best part of what we do.
Finding villas for holiday rental and interviewing new partners is a lot of work, but really rewarding. We develop long term friendships with our partners and they are just the best people in the world to deal with. That open friendliness that I spoke about before is so genuine. They want everyone that spends a holiday in their villa to be able to say it was the best one ever.
Many of our repeat clients decide to purchase villas through us also. We explain to them that was actually how the company got started. Just like them, we went on holiday to Algarve a few times, and developed the Golden Triangle fever. When you go there you won't want to leave either!
We are seeing such an influx of short term holidays, breaks really. All over Europe; Ireland, Scotland, and Britain are flocking to golf breaks in Portugal. Many want fully catered holidays so they can spend their time at the tee. Some request self catered villas and come with larger groups of friends for a long well deserved weekend.
Whatever your reasoning or activity, choosing the Golden Triangle for your holiday is the best choice you will make.
