A Terrace Bar with a Sea ViewLocated in the centre of the historic city of Lagos, the Mar d'Estorias experience culminates in a Terrace Bar where the combination of sea breeze and sunset is enhanced by a fantastic view.

Whatever your plans this summer, do not miss a relaxed afternoon or a magical evening on one of the most Algarvian terraces in Lagos. The Portuguese music, a simple, modern decoration that appeals to the comfort and the smell of the sea that is possible to breathe in the Terrace Bar are the perfect combination for sharing pleasant moments.

Friends, Clients and Employees all enjoyed cocktails and canapés on one of warmest evenings of the year; it was a truly lovely event.

Business For Sale in LagosQUALITY PAINTS, Lagos - We’ve considered awaiting the final outcome of Brexit, but unfortunately  our little bodies have told us otherwise, so the BUSINESS is BACK UP FOR SALE - and PRICE REDUCED (from €195K) to €165K due to FX rate.
€165K is all inclusive ie lock stock and barrel - but there’s now an option to RENT the Shop premises. If RENTAL is preferred, Shop value (to be deducted from €165K), also rent, will be independently assessed.

If you’re looking to keep body and brain active whilst still having ample time to enjoy the Algarvean lifestyle, (current opening hours are Mon to Fri, 10.00 to 16.00 - unlike 24/7 for bar/restaurant type businesses), then this could be for you!
We still enjoy running the business and would very much like to continue, but unfortunately neither of us is getting any younger and the physical aspects are getting a bit beyond us, aaaah!

CLIENTS PLEASE NOTE: THE BUSINESS WILL CONTINUE AS USUAL, (may improve!), NOT LEAST AS THERE WILL BE A HANDOVER PERIOD OF UP TO THREE MONTHS AVAILABLE TO THE NEW BUYER, SO ANY CHANGE WILL BE SEAMLESS.

VILA VITA Parc’s traditional Bavarian Biergarten reopensVILA VITA Parc’s traditional Bavarian Biergarten reopened on the 4th July showcasing cosy-chic décor, an authentic new menu and a truly convivial atmosphere.

The VILA VITA Biergarten, the Algarve’s most authentic German beer garden, located in pretty Porches, reopened on the 4th of July, following a brief period of refurbishment.
With an interior entirely lined with 120-year-old vintage wood, stepping into the Biergarten feels like you’re being transported to a rustic chalet in the Alps. The new decoration, which is even more cosy and traditional, contributes to the unique location’s convivial atmosphere, typical of the best German beer gardens. New features include the new bar at the entrance, covered in characterful wooden tiles used in regional Bavarian design, as well as a raised floor area on the upper floor, ideal for live band performances.
