Don’t Delay On Property Purchase
The UK’s recent decision to leave the EU does not mean that a cloud of uncertainty should descend on the property market. Experts have predicted that nothing will change for a period of at least two years, and that we should expect exchange rates to stabilise long before these changes occur. Geographically, and to a large extent, economically, the UK will always be part of Europe, and property ownership can prove just as lucrative to a native of a non-EU-member state in a Global market. Advantages of Spanish property ownership will only increase if the freedom of UK citizens is limited by exit from the union, so, clearly the time to buy is now.
The centre-right Partido Popular (PP) proved the most popular choice in Spain’s general election, but acting Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy fell short of a majority for the second time in six months and will face fierce negotiation to form a government. With no easy coalition in sight, talks to reach a majority could take weeks. Once the new parliament and senate are operational from 19th July onwards, it will be up to King Felipe to nominate a candidate to become prime minister though he would normally wait until the parties can agree on someone.

Savings in Space

The longtime favourite club has reduced the ticket price of its spectacular Sunday night event to just 20€ for entry before 10pm. Featuring top name DJs like: Annie Mac, Carl Craig, Pan Pot Live and Cirillo. With a popular energy honed over decades the mega-party nights will now be accessible to many more, and don’t forget, early entrance allows more time to relax on the Sunset Terrace with a huge cast of international artists set to perform, unannounced, throughout the summer in the new daytime: We Love… Sundays At Space. A pre-party that doesn’t require transport to the main event.
As crazy season takes hold in Ibiza, many crave tranquility and relaxation. Formentera is an island where frazzled holidaymakers can find solitude, fine sandy beaches, impossibly clear waters and intense natural beauty. Always a popular choice for Italian tourists Ibiza’s neighbouring island will have its crowds in the hotel zones, but it is still possible to dscover almost deserted bays and live a simpler life for a day. Fast ferries leave from Ibiza town several times a day and once there options include bike hire for a healthy wholesome break from the hedonism of Ibiza in July.
