Unique and bespoke travelling experiences with Cristina González and Leisure & Care, our new Spanish entrepreneur in London

Looking for planning your Christmas trip with a very personal and unique approach? Cristina González would be the perfect person to do it for you. She is the founder and Leisure & Care and is one of our Spanish entrepreneurs based in London.

We filmed our interview this summer in one of the most emblematic places to visit in London, Green Park.  Cristina´s experience within the travel industry was built when she worked for 8 years as a Travel manager of the infamous Barcelona Football club

Cristina says that they are more like a Personal Assistant when it comes to organising the trips. They are like friends with their clients, speaking a lot with them and making sure everything has been planned according to exactly what they want.

Leisure & Care operates either in Spain and England. In our country, she can offer from flying on an air balloon to visiting the cellar of Ribera del Duero wine. Also in England, she would be able to take you to Ascot, a polo match, a gin factory in Chiswick or a concert where the tickets have been sold out for months.

Because as Cristina says, “We don´t think about the big business, we think of people. With us, you can do whatever you want”. And that is what makes them unique an especial.

 

 

“We don´t think in the big business, we think in people”

We hit the day with a sneak peak of our next featured Spanish entrepreneur in London, Cristina González. Her business is not a regular travel agency, her business offers  “bespoke travel”, either helping people to visit the UK and also guiding clients to visit any hidden corner in Spain. Cristina´s company is Leisure and Care Unique and, as she says, she doesn’t think in the big business, “she thinks in people”.

  • Our entrepreneur was, during 8 years in Barcelona, the Travel Manager of one of the most important football teams in the World.
  • Her business is not a regular travel agency,   her business offers  “bespoke travel”, either helping people to visit the UK and also guiding clients to visit any hidden corner in Spain.
  • Whatever the client wants, Cristina can make it real. Would you like to visit a beer brewery in London? Would you like to have an exclusive shopping experience? Do you fancy overflying vineyards and Roman ruins in an Air balloon in Spain? Cristina can get it. And that is why, she says, “they are so unique”.
  • Cristina´s company is Leisure and Care Unique and, as she says, she doesn´t think in the big business, “she thinks in people”.

Our interview with the Spanish entrepreneur Marta Poyo, founder of the online store www.mibebe.co.uk

 

Our Spanish entrepreneur this time is Marta Poyo, the founder of the fashion online store www.mibebe.co.uk.

Marta started her business when her daughter was born in 2012, when she couldn’t find in London the clothes that she wanted for her little and needed to ask her mum to buy them in Spain and bring them here.

She says that there are many shops in London where to find baby clothes but none of them offers what her company does: beautiful,  convenient and affordable Spanish baby clothes,  and with a very personalised customer service.

Marta gets involved from the very beginning of the production. From deciding fabrics, colours, styles and combinations. And that is why she can offer exclusive products. Mibebe is specialised also in baby lists, baby showers and Christenings.

Marta´s business has been featured in magazines such as Vogue and also House&Garden which has given to our Spanish entrepreneur de opportunity to open to a wider and exclusive market, especially now that the Royal Family has made of the Spanish baby clothing style a true trend.

Advance of our new interview: we talk about quality, convenient baby clothing and a touch of Royal style

Marta found herself in troubles when her daughter was born and she couldn´t find in London the clothes that she wanted to dress her little baby with, so she had to ask her mother, living in Spain, to send her what she really needed.

It was in 2012 when the Spanish entrepreneur Marta Poyo decided then to open her own fashion e-commerce called Mibebe.co.uk, an online store fully dedicated to dressing the little ones. Marta says that Mibebe offers “traditional and luxurious baby and children clothes from Spain” and adds that her clothes are also convenient because of the easy care materials, something very important when it comes to the attention of busy mums.

Mibebe.co.uk has been featured in magazines such us Vogue and also House & Garden which has given to our Spanish entrepreneur de opportunity to open to a wider and exclusive market, especially now that the Royal Family has made of the Spanish baby clothing style a true trend.
