The Great Gatsby at the Parc

If you can’t drag yourself away from the fireplace over Christmas, then why not swing and dance to the sound of the Lisbon Swing Band, a fully blown orchestra, at the New Year’s Eve Gala at Vila Vita Parc, themed The Great Gatsby at the Parc. With its 2 Michelin starred Ocean restaurant and a host of other gourmet venues to suit every taste,Vila Vita Parc celebrated it’s 20th anniversary this year, well done Kurt Gillig and his team! 

‘There have been very positive comments about The Great Gatsby piece, everyone loves the design’ Katya Bauval – Director of Sales & Marketing

We love fish…!

Need we say more about João and Marjolin (later joined by Joaquim) who opened their deck over the Ocean at Ancão beach 30 years ago! Don’t forget to visit Dois Passos in the New Year when they re-open on Feb 1st.

[:pt] e mais tarde Joaquim também, que inauguraram o seu deck sobre o Oceano há já 30 anos na praia do Ancão! Não se esqueça de fazer uma visita ao 2 Passos em 2013 quando reabrirem a 1 de Fevereiro.

Essential places – Algarve, Lisbon, Madeira, Macau, London, Asia…

Open Media

Well done Bruce, Fernando and the Open Media team, having successfully expanded to new  markets, in Asia with Essential editions in Macau, Kuala Lumpur and in the UK, with their London edition. Also for the take over of Algarve Resident, now enjoyed by even more Algarve afixionados!

Four Seasons Country Club ACCA


Four Seasons Country Club Annual Charity Fair was held at the end of November, the proceeds went to ACCA to help local Children in need in the Algarve. Well done to FSCC for organising and hosting this event. We did our little bit by designing the poster and some ads, which The Resident and The News kindly offered to publish, everyone doing their bit goes a long way! It’s Christmas, so be generous.
