Work from home in style at these stunning spots
In March 2020 Coronavirus swept through the world and everything changed. Six months down the line and ‘working remotely’, ‘isolation’ and ‘quarantine’ have become global buzzwords, and our perception of work has evolved into something much more flexible. Working from home is now king, with one-third of employees expecting to work remotely full-time after the pandemic.
That being said, ‘working from home’ doesn’t necessarily mean it has to be your home. The rise in remote working has given us the opportunity to travel and experience life in other cities, whilst continuing to work. With this in mind, we’ve picked a few of our homes which have great spaces to work in. From book-filled studies to light-soaked window spots, these are the places where you’ll look forward to getting up and going ‘into the office’.
What’s more, with all the services on offer at onefinestay you won’t have to worry about a thing during your stay. From weekly housekeeping and grocery shopping to arranging childcare and a private chef, we can take care of it all - leaving you the time and space you need to focus. We even check whether there are building works in the nearby area before your stay, so there’s no risk of unexpected noise while you work.
