A Business in the Sun Have you ever thought about moving to Portugal and living here permanently? However, does retirement seem a long way off? Well there could be another way... Owning and running a business in the Algarve is easier than you think. The Algarve offers many options for families to relocate and continue their careers, albeit a different one. Imagine bringing up your kids where they go to the beach every day and enjoy the outdoors more than their PlayStations... the Algarve offers all this, and what’s more, owning a business out here could be the key for you to start enjoying a life here. At B&P we have for sale a number of businesses; hotels, Quintas with holiday accommodation, bars and even a swimming pool complex on Meia Praia beach. One example is Quinta Misquita in Sargaçal. A 9 bedroom Quinta separated into a 3 bedroom villa and then 6 individual bedroom annex, the property can be rented out as a whole or just part. This business has a regular client base and also trades throughout the year. There are few properties of this size on the market and while the summer months

A real treasure trove - Gii Homes By Tom Henshaw It’s great to find a real gift shop that proves to be far more than simply that! With gift ideas ranging from a few centimos up to luxury items around €600 with much more exclusive choices than you find in most shopping centres, a real treasure trove. Paulo started this lovely store in May 2013 and it is going from strength to strength, selling candles at one end of the spectrum to luxury goods at the other end of it proving that it is really possible to find what you want or need for any special occasion in Lagos. Having marked the first year, Paulo has added a new business that fits in perfectly with the store. He has added a soft furnishing business making anything from curtains and interior furnishings to upholstery covers with an experienced team of professionals. Another very good service, especially for someone like me, is the handyman service. They can adjust sliding doors, fix rails, in fact any job around the house that you just never get around to or are incapable of doing! The shop is close to Inova or call Paulo for directions on: 936 114 838 or email:
