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.
