Unfortunately the official website isn’t live yet so we can’t show the actual course or the expected finish timing in Vilamoura. Last year the finish line was by the petrol station at 3pm with access by cars blocked off for the afternoon. Expect a huge turn out and traffic confusion but a great spectacle for all!
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.
