Whilst still pursuing our own goal to find and secure a property for ourselves we continued to talk about what Living in Algarve as a business would look like.
As we talked we thought about what else could be challenging for our clients after they had purchased a property, especially if they had minimal time and lived outside of Portugal.
I remembered when we bought a new villa in Florida in the ’90s. I was determined not to buy the furniture as a package, chosen from a catalogue, from the builder . I had a certain style in mind and it took two trips from the UK and a total of five weeks to find and buy everything we needed for a villa with four bedrooms. It was exhausting.
From these discussions the Furniture and Beyond arm of the business was born. After a needs and style analysis we can help our clients with interior design ideas, sourcing furnishings and organising the decoration all within their budget.
