To last that long in such a competitive market, we must be doing something right! Here are some of the reasons:

  • Interesting and durable content. We strike the right balance between entertainment and information.
  • We show readers exactly where businesses are located on our large centre-spread map.
  • Rock solid distribution. All our readers are guaranteed to find our magazines freely available in more than 150 distribution points in the Loulé area.
  • The most up to date and comprehensive restaurant listings - indispensable to all visitors and residents.
  • Extremely competitive advertising rates. An advertising budget as little as EUR 240 can include you in 3 separate issues (that's more than 60,000 magazines!!), distributed during an ENTIRE YEAR period.
  • Advertisers get additional free publicity via: this popular website, free periodic editorials, and direct distribution to thousands of high-spending visitors and property owners via our large well-known property agency, ''Villas & Vacations''.

Free classified ads!!


Many would-be advertisers have been frustrated by our lack of a classified section. We only publish 3 magazines per year, so the cycle is too long for the average classified advertisement. However, this website is much better suited to shorter-term advertising, and the best part is that it's now ''FREE!''
