We've been helping owners rent out their properties in the Alps for over 10 years. Discover their stories in our case studies:
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.
We built and ran our chalet as a catered operation, but were struggling to generate enough bookings and eventually started losing money. Thankfully, we found OVO Network who offered us a solution that gave us access to the self-catered market.
I can honestly say it has been absolutely life changing. All the worry and hassle of running a chalet business was removed, with great advice and on-going support that means we can relax and get our lives back!
Chalet Croix Meridionale
In 2015, when we decided to rent our chalet, I was immediately attracted by the OVO Network concept. It offered a personalised website with a clear, well designed presentation, and access to all the major international booking sites. In short, it provides an original and professional approach and a friendly contact!
I am very happy with our choice. OVO Network has been able to adapt remarkably to changes in the market, including during the recent COVID crisis. From the start, our rental targets have been consistently met, if not exceeded, without any involvement on my part. Finally, the OVO Network team has always demonstrated an excellent sense of service, which facilitates a true partnership in my eyes.
I joined OVO Network in 2013, having never rented my chalet before. The team was easy to work with, providing a level of professionalism that I value greatly. All of their marketing is bilingual, with the website easy to navigate and with great information.
As a result they have been very successful in generating bookings from overseas and within France and our chalet has consistently met its rental targets.

For me it’s simple - I would never have been able to rent my chalet by myself in the way that OVO Network can. Previously I had worked in rental management and rented through the OTAs, but I prefer the approach and genuine support of OVO Network and their focus on 'high end' chalets.
What’s great is that I never talk about money with my guests - when they arrive the rental payment, security deposit and taxe de sejour has all been taken care of by OVO Network. The feeling I get with people is also important and since the first meeting I’ve felt comfortable and confident in our relationship.
Initially we listed our property ourselves on many of the OTAs, but it was so stressful and hugely time consuming. We decided to work with OVO Network and were quickly convinced it was the right decision, with our revenue increasing over the years.
But we’ve found working with OVO Network brings more than just income. The team is always listening to owners, always looking for the best way to work together. The notion of partnership is a reality shared on a daily basis. Thank you for the serenity you have brought me, allowing me to devote myself to welcoming our guests.
I am a massive advocate of OVO Network. As a marketeer myself I love the fact that they recognise the importance of creating a premium brand as a route to success in such a cluttered marketplace. The marketing is highly effective, with all chalets presented through the same consistent, transparent and authentic lens.
Trusted brands are what people are looking for and OVO Network's branding allows guests to book with confidence. My experience has consistently been how everyone in the team is very helpful and 'can do', I get quick and quality responses to all of my queries and they clearly care about their owners.
The recommendation to get in touch with OVO Network turned out to be absolutely brilliant. The entire team, from interior design to photography to accounts and onboarding, was fantastic. Our chalet was almost immediately fully booked for its first ski season, and is already almost fully booked for the next ski season.
We recently obtained an official 5* Tourist Classification - and there is no doubt whatsoever that it is in no small part thanks to our team at OVO Network. They have been not just brilliant with their knowledge and expertise and suggestions for improvements, but they have also, in the process, become our friends. We are delighted to be partnering with OVO Network, and we absolutely, thoroughly, utterly, recommend them to anyone who wishes to rent their chalet out.

Chalet Joux Verte
OVO Network has facilitated an increase in our rental income annually from 2017 when we acquired the property, above and beyond our expectations. Their advice has been invaluable from the outset.
The team at OVO are both accessible and professional. There is always someone at hand to advise and assist if needed. Their online back office for owners (PIMMS) has been improved considerably since we joined in 2017.

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 an Annual Membership Fee of 750€ and a 10% Service Fee on each booking. There is also a Distribution Fee of 5% - paid by the guest, not you, and included in their price.

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.

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.
