Working with OVO Network has been so much better than we ever expected. The quality of their marketing, their booking technology and their management—it all means I can get involved as much or as little as I please.
Added to this, is an exceptional team of people who are honest and completely trustworthy—I recommend them to everyone
The OVO Network approach is different to the other companies I looked at.
You work with them exclusively and they give you this incredible website, expert marketing and a booking and management system that means you don’t have to lift a finger and the bookings come in.
The beauty with OVO Network is that they are always trying to improve their service and make things easier for their clients.
Add to this the research they put into understanding the fast changing rental market and implementing initiatives to help us take advantage of these changes and we see the benefits of working with them year round.
OVO Network has made renting out our property easy from start to finish. Initially we were concerned about running a rental business from so far away, but it has been far easier and more effective than we ever thought possible.
OVO Network’s expertise is clear, simply through the results they have achieved for us.
You will be assigned a dedicated account manager who will work with you and advise on everything from set-up and pricing to photography and guest experience.
The onboarding of your property is done for you, with our experienced team writing and translating all of the website copy.
You’ll need high quality photography that promotes everything about the property. If you need new images our team can help
We’ll promote your properties on ovonetwork.com. Provide iCal details and we’ll synchronise your OVO Network calendars with existing calendars.
Payments are made directly to your bank account via your own Stripe payment gateway, according to your chosen booking and cancellation policy.
Our advanced back office system enables you to handle enquiries directly with your guests and modify property details
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.
For catered chalet operators, we provide the flexibility to access a new sales channel - the affluent French self-catered market - while continuing your catered operations if you choose.
OVO Network works with what we consider as ‘best in class’ properties. We review hundreds of properties each year, but only work with those that reflect the OVO Network brand and that we believe can be successfully marketed to the French self-catered market.
We specialise in larger capacity four and five-star properties, and carefully review all potential partners. The one thing they all have in common is a commitment to our values and ethos of delivering the best possible service and holiday experience to guests.
Yes, we can. We have photographers available at short notice, who can work to our photography brief and get beautiful, new photos live quickly to help you take advantage of the current demand.
High quality photography is vital to the success of a self-catered property. It’s important to understand that while catered chalets can be sold on the service provided, with self-catering the focus is very much on the property itself. It’s a big difference and you will need all rooms to be photographed, including all bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens and any additional facilities such as the hot tub, games room etc.
Creative home staging of the property is key to achieving the best photography, and it helps guests imagine themselves living in the property. We can provide a home staging guide and advice to help you get it right, with a range of tips and expert insights to ensure your property looks its best in the photo shoot.
There is no joining or sign up fee. To work with OVO Network as a catered chalet operator, we charge a service fee of just 12%.
Our solution offers catered chalet operators quick access to the French self-catered market, but there are some things you can do to help your property generate sales. Our team are experts in reviewing properties for the self-catered market, so we can advise on home staging and photography, to help you quickly maximise your occupancy and income. Speak to us about how we can help.
This really depends on your individual property. Generally, if all information is readily available, it takes around 48 hours.
Yes. To reduce the risk of double bookings you will need to provide an iCal reservation calendar or switch your properties to ‘on-request’ bookings only.
Yes, we can provide bilingual enquiry management at an additional cost. All transactional emails are automatically sent in French or English.
Yes, our experienced revenue management team can advise on appropriate pricing for the French self-catered market.
