Good day

Are there any South Africans living on the Azores on this site?

Regards

    Yes the owners are from S. Africa but sorry to tell you that the restaurant will be closing soon.

    I moved from South Africa to Pico Island (with my family). There are at least 3 other ex South Africans here (including BBQ).

    No problem..I've lived in America for 32 years building Irish concept pubs and owning a few small one's myself so I'm looking to do same here but with accommodation attached..I'm pretty sure you will not be disappointed in this place..it's a world I never new existed..peaceful..beautiful..laid back..and extremely safe..

    Hi. I will send questions as we go along. I've been t oPortugal and thought it was a great country, but haven't been to the Azores. Met South Africans who moved there in '98 already and they won 'tleave either.
    I've been in business all my life, especially in hotels, property development, guest houses and eventime-share - all my own companies, so if there is potential in tourism I am very excited.
    I will be in touch!

    Have a super weekend.

    Ask me pacific questions please...personally I think it's a place of tremendous opportunity..this place will explode with tourism in a few years..2 years ago 150000 tourists. Now 1000000 and growing...and as a safe place no country could ever be as safe or relaxed I'm never leaving here..it has all I need for good life..

    Hi Kevin

    Thank you for your e-mail. I like your idea. At the moment I am however busy with a property development in South Africa, but will be in Europe from the end of the month till mid September. Unfortunately I won't be able to make it to the Azores on this trip.

    I am planning on going there early next year. I would very much like to meet up and chat. I believe you have already explored some options on the islands. I was also thinking tourism and hospitality. Maybe we can venture together in future.

    Best regards
    Jacques
