A Business Cocktail Evening organised by the British-Portuguese Chamber of Commerce (BPCC) and sponsored by Fine & Country Almancil was held on Thursday, February 21.
This was the BPCC’s first business cocktail of the year and was attended by around 100 people from the local business community.
Described as “short after-work events”, between 6pm and 8.30pm, the cocktail evenings allow new and existing members to get together and network with other members as well as with the Chamber directors.
This time the event was also an opportunity for Fine & Country Almancil to officially announce the opening of its new office which relocated last year to spacious new premises on Avenida 5 de Outubro.
At the event, members sampled fine English wines alongside Portuguese wines, in a symbolic celebration of the centuries-old historical alliance between the UK and Portugal, in spite of Brexit uncertainty. The English wines served are not available to buy in Portugal and wine importer and distributor Prime Wines went to great lengths to bring the wines from the UK especially for the occasion.
Fine & Country Algarve, with offices in Carvoeiro, Almancil and Tavira, is part of the global Fine & Country network of estate agencies specialising in the luxury market with offices in 300 locations worldwide. In attendance was Natalie d’Souza, International Business Development Manager for Fine & Country who travelled from London especially for the Algarve event.
The three Fine & Country offices in the Algarve cover the whole region from east to west “offering the finest selection of properties to the discerning buyer, ranging from magnificent ocean-front villas, to homes on luxurious closed condominium resorts and peaceful rural retreats”.
Fine & Country Almancil is located at Avenida 5 de Outubro, 364, Edifício Barros Nunes.
