Royal Ascot Vilamoura
The 20th of June is Ladies Day at Royal Ascot in England but Vilamoura will host it’s own “Virtual” version at Vila Sol. The event organised by Virtually There Events will emulate the 300 year old tradition with the same dress code and races streamed live to the venue. For those of you who don’t happen to have a full morning suit hanging in the wardrobe hire facilities are available.
There will be a wide variety of entertainment including Loryane Robinson, formally of the Three Degrees, who has been living in the Algarve for the past 6 years and a variety of catering facilities on offer, too many to list here. It is better to visit their excellent website by clicking this link but below are a few high lights:
- The Atlantic Piano Bar will provide the PIMMS + British Beverages
- The News Cafe will bring their Champagne & Oyster Bar
- Nougat Tea’N will provide a traditional tea room and Ice Cream cart
- The Hotel is offering various dining options
- A number of British institutions are hosting their members
This is the first such event in Algarve and wish all involved every success and a great day out.
Norton & Mackenzie offer a comprehensive portfolio of property management, long term rentals and quality holiday lets in Vilamoura.
In addition we are fully conversant with the new law regarding renting out holiday properties in Portugal should you require advice about getting a license and being compliant. Previously there were no active checks carried out, no action actually taken and hence no penalties transpiring. Under the new regime the newly appointed authorities (ASAE) have full transparency from analysing internet advertising to physical visits to properties to check who is in residence. More importantly they have the resource to do this which the local councils never had. There is evan a liaison between the tax office and utility Companies to cross check consumption in “empty” properties. 2015 will be the year of enforcement.
