Long Term rental villas

We are seriously considering moving to Portugal.
However before we buy I want to rent for 12 months. Seems sensible as within that time we can get a real feel for which area we may want to settle in. Problem is I know most landlords prefer summer rentals for higher yield. I get that no problem.
However could anyone advise me or point towards a landlord/agency that will consider a 12 month term.

I realise there maybe a higher monthly payment due to compensating for summer months.

Would love to hear from anyone with experience in this area

I want to rent near loule. Ideally Quinta Do Lago. I know that's very expensive so happy anywhere near

Thanks in Advance

Hi there.

We're going through a similar effort at the moment, albeit in a completely different area, so the economics might be different. We're looking at the Gouveia area. Having said that, we managed to get in touch with several folks who have summer rentals and general found them very open to longer term. As I said, it might be different elsewhere, but we found most of them would be happy to give a 12 month contract at the same monthly rate as a high season week. So it worked out well for us. It could of course be that the occupancy rates in our area are much lower during high season than elsewhere, thus a long term rent present a better yield.

Hope you find something

Philip
