How can we help you?
We've been helping owners rent out their properties in the Alps for over 10 years. Discover their stories in our case studies:
Chalet Ruisselet | Châtel
A high-end renovation of a 1990s Portes du Soleil chalet has ensured all season appeal, securing over €100,000 in bookings in its first seven months with OVO Network.
Chalet Petille | Combloux - Megève
After failing to sell their underutilised holiday home, discover how these owners are reaping the rewards of successful holiday rentals.
Chalet Vivaldaim | Morillon
An Alpine home for precious family time is also generating strong rental revenue for these owners - €120k in the first six months.
What our owners say
We ran our chalet as a catered operation, but were struggling to generate bookings. Thankfully, we found OVO Network who gave us access to the self-catered market. It has been absolutely life changing. All the worry of running a chalet business was removed, with great advice and on-going support that means we can relax and get our lives back.
When we decided to rent our chalet in 2015 I was immediately attracted by OVO Network - they provide an original and professional approach, with a friendly contact! From the start our targets have been consistently met, if not exceeded, without any involvement from me. The team has always given excellent service, facilitating a true partnership.
I joined OVO Network in 2013, and have always found the team easy to work with, providing a high level of professionalism. All of their marketing is bilingual, with the website easy to navigate. As a result they have been very successful in generating bookings from overseas and within France, with our chalet consistently meeting its rental targets.
I could never rent my chalet in the way that OVO Network can. Previously I rented through the OTAs, but I prefer the approach and genuine support of OVO Network, with their focus on high end chalets. When guests arrive all of the financials have been taken care of, and since the first meeting I’ve felt comfortable and confident in our relationship.
At first, we listed our property ourselves on the OTAs, but it was stressful and time-consuming. We joined OVO Network and were quickly convinced it was the right decision. Our revenue increased over the years, but OVO brings more than just income. They listen to their owners and find the best way to work together - it's a real partnership approach.
I am a massive advocate of OVO Network. I love that they have created a premium brand as a route to success in a crowded market. Trusted brands are what people are looking for and OVO Network’s branding allows guests to book with confidence. Everyone in the team is very helpful, with a ‘can do’ attitude, and they clearly care about their owners.
OVO Network is brilliant with their knowledge, expertise and suggestions for improvements. Our chalet was almost immediately fully booked for its first ski season, and this success has continued. The entire team - from interior design and photography, to accounts and onboarding - was fantastic and we absolutely, thoroughly, utterly recommend them.
OVO Network has facilitated an increase in our rental income every year since we joined in 2017 - well above our expectations. Their team is accessible and professional - there’s always someone to advise and assist if needed - and their advice has been invaluable from the outset, with their online back office easy to navigate and work with.
Your questions answered…
OVO Network is a specialist in the holiday rental market, providing an interface between owners and guests for all marketing, enquiries and reservations.
We create beautiful, fully responsive websites, tailored marketing campaigns, secure bookings and seamless communications that enable property owners to maximise their rental income with minimum effort. Put simply, we save you time and increase your profits.
OVO Network works with what we consider as ‘best in class’ properties. We review hundreds of properties each year, but just 5% are accepted to join.
They aren’t all luxury homes, but they do all offer something special, be that an exclusive location, exceptional design or five-star facilities. We work with properties ranging from two-bedroom cottages to 12-bedroom chalets, but the one thing they all have is owners who share our values and ethos to deliver the best possible service and holiday experience to our guests.
To join OVO Network there is a one-off Joining Fee of 1500€, which contributes towards the initial costs of setting up your website and your online business.
This investment is matched by OVO Network. Once your website is live there is a 12.5% Service Fee on each booking. There is also a Distribution Fee of 12.5% applied on bookings which are made via ovonetwork.com - paid by the guest, not you, and included in the price of their booking.
It depends on the condition of the property and the rental potential it offers.
Our team are experts in reviewing properties for the rental market, so we can advise on everything from furnishings to facilities, to help you maximise your occupancy and income.
This really depends on your individual property.
From our initial visit to your home and ensuring the property is ready for rental, to getting the bilingual website launched and the marketing in place, every property is different in its requirements and the time it will take to launch.
Yes - with OVO Network you can still use your property whenever you choose.
Every owner has their own online back office, where you can manage your entire availability calendar. Here you can easily update your availability to show dates as unavailable.
This varies dependent on the type of property, its location, facilities, your current occupancy and rental rates.
We can advise you on this when we visit the property, however all OVO Network owners to date have seen a strong increase in their rental income.
We’ve seen many OVO Network properties sold at up to 20% more than the market value, due to their historical success as a rental business.
Even when the buyer doesn’t want to rent they will often pay a higher price to secure the property, with the confidence that they can successfully rent in future if they need/want to.
In addition, there are a number of local banks who look favourably on mortgage applications where the owner is going to rent through OVO Network.
Because it’s an automated system, OVO Network technology provides instant responses to guests and manages everything - from confirming bookings and chasing up payments to advising property managers of guest arrivals or special requests.
Your guests can book quickly and easily from anywhere in the word, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. And with OVO Network you can accept online payments by credit or debit card directly into your bank account.
Every property has its own dedicated, bilingual website and we do both winter and summer photo shoots to show the year-round potential of your property.
OVO Network owners also benefit from tailored SEO (search engine optimisation) activity; advertising on major English and French language rental sites such as Airbnb, Abritel, Booking.com and Vrbo; Google AdWords campaigns; monthly customer newsletters and ecards; and promotion through social media such as Facebook, Instagram and our blog.
