Cerro Novo in the Community
With a majority of the Cerro Novo team living within 10km of the office, we believe that being part of the local and business community is of primary importance.
From a business perspective, we’re members of the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce and have been actively supporting local and Regional initiatives since 1996. We’re also proud to support Safe Communities Algarve who support the authorities in maintaining our low local crime rates.
For every completed property sale, we contribute a minimum of €50 to our existing charity, The Peta Birch Community Association. Later this year, we’ll offer our Clients the choice of supporting additional Charities with a further donation at Completion.
In addition to financial contributions, our team also supports the local community by helping the elderly with shopping, general repairs etc. and in 2016 we will be sponsoring coffee mornings where people can come and meet fellow residents, ex-pats and representatives from official bodies to chat, talk and ask advice on topical matters. Take a look at the Cerro Grande Albufeira community facebook page which is currently under construction.
We believe that Portugal is one of the friendliest countries to live in Europe and the communities of the Central Algarve are vibrant, happy places. Whilst the sun shines for over 300 days a year, in the cooler, quieter winter months, the communities take on a different personality where the resident population naturally enjoy more interaction and we try to encourage that by remaining open 9 – 6 every day except Sunday and supporting our fellow local businesses to do the same.
