Sunday the 29th of November sees a major day for athletics in Vilamoura. There are actually 2 events a triathlon comprising a 21.1 km run, 1.9 km swim and a 91.5 km bike ride. The second is a Half Marathon.
As with all triathlons the first part is the swim and the participants will start from Vilamoura beach in front of Buzio’s bar at 10:00am. The route takes them almost 2 km between the walls of Vilamoura marina and Quarteira marina. They then transition from the beach to the 91.5 km bike ride heading out of town up towards Loule. Once back from the ride they transition to the run taking in both Quarteira beach front and Vilamoura marina.
Any one interested in watching will find the beach a good place to watch the start and anywhere on the Marina good for the final part.
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.
