Easyjet To Establish Lisbon Base by Esther Munoz Tong

The recent announcement that easyJet is making Lisbon one of its European hubs lead us to believe that an imminent larger choice of regional flights to Portugal’s capital city is on the way.

 

The low cost airline currently flies to Lisbon from five British airports, including Edinburgh while their new aircraft base is slated to open in winter 2011. Lisbon will become easyJet's 20th base, its first in Portugal. Already operating nearly 100 weekly flights, and according to November flight-base data, to 16 scheduled destinations. easyJet has established itself as the second largest operator in the Lisbon market, second only to the national airline of Portugal, TAP.

 

Yet another great reason to plan your next visit to this enchanting baroque town and furthermore to stay in our lovely Santos River Apartments located in the heart of Lisbon with more frequency flights and hopefully better value for regional routes within the rest of Europe.

New Saco Properties in Central London and Bracknell by Esther Munoz Tong

Two New Saco Properties are now part of our portfolio of serviced apartments. Saco Spitalfields is yet another excellent and well priced alternative for corporate accommodation in The City; each -one and two bedrooms- apartment offers floor to ceiling windows, contemporary furnishings and fully equipped kitchens.

 

The area
What was once a retail backwater is now a haven for those in search of a quirky shopping experience. Here it’s the free-thinking independents not chain stores that hold sway, in a lively environment that truly deserves to be described as unique and eclectic. The programme of live music and artistic events makes Spitalfields a draw for anyone looking to eat, drink or watch the world go by. And above all, for style-conscious shoppers already captivated by nearby Brick Lane, Cheshire and Hanbury Streets, it’s an opportunity not to be missed.

 

While for those looking to rent an apartment for short or extendible periods, within easy reach of major High-Tech industries including Panasonic, Fujitsu, Hewlett Packard, Cable and Wireless, Dell, Honeywell, BMW Group and Waitrose headquarters can now book Saco Bracknell though the Apartment Service.

 

The area
Bracknell has been used in the filming of many TV shows and films, such as Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and Time Bandits. The town has a large leisure centre, which includes swimming and athletics facilities, whilst there is also the Coral Reef Water Park, the Downshire Golf Complex, the Bracknell Lawn Tennis Club and the Royal County of Berkshire Club. The John Nike Leisure Sport Complex houses a dry ski slope and an ice rink, and there are 2,600 acres of Crown Estate woodland at the Look Out Discovery Centre.

Your Home in Madrid by Esther Munoz Tong

As you may know, the Apartment Service has teamed up with a group of relocation experts in Madrid to offer a brand new accommodation solution in the heart of the gastronomic capital of Spain. One of our new business development executive, paid a short visit to Apartamentos Sandoval a few days ago, here are his thoughts:

The Sandoval Apartments were very beautiful and I enjoyed the local vicinity. I stopped at the local Carrefour which was very busy... When I heard a lady exclaim “mañana” and then left the store, I should have taken the hint but I decided to try the Spanish shopping experience. Which I can confirm was worthwhile as I picked up a very nice bottle of Rioja and some great food. It’s the little things in life.

The general area around the apartments was excellent and I can confidently promote the features, advantages and benefits of staying at Sandoval. I did manage to visit Opera, Callao, Sol, Gran Via and the Savilla areas... I loved the atmosphere and how accessible everything is in Madrid, so I’m looking forward to coming back for a longer stay in the future.’   

Enough said. Everyone in the office is currently firing emails to our Managing Director to find out when it’s our turn to “sample” first hand Apartamentos Sandoval in Madrid...
