How fortunate I was in discovering this extraordinary new listing last September as I planned a month long return trip to Spain for this current year! Having known Madrid for 40 years, it was apparent that the location of this apartment in a most secure and attractive area with several means of transportation at one's fingertips would be a priority for going to the main attractions within the city as well as going to nearby towns with ease. Writing and speaking with María in English and Spanish had been delightful and reassuring throughout the year. The apartment is appealing with its refined charm in furnishings and amenities including the washer and dryer that make staying there so convenient for short or lengthy stays. The family takes great pride in making sure the apartment is impeccable as their guests enter, their greeting is so warmly received and general points of information regarding the operation of appliances and other apartment details are explained. The location of nearby grocery stores, restaurants, cafés, specialty shops and El Corte Inglés, a large department store with anything you may need, including a supermarket are provided along with city maps, guides and excursion and entertainment suggestions, all quite informative for those new to the city. In addition, the kitchen has everything that you could need in assisting with food preparation and linens and personal and cleaning items are plentiful. The apartment is very comfortable allowing you to feel relaxed and successful as you may address your tourist plans as well as personal matters while having Wi-Fi at all times. As for the view, it's simply amazing! To see the northern points of the city and the Guadarrama Mountains in the distance every day is a gift that brings great euphoria to the spirit as you come and go during your stay. Seeing the sun rise and set will have an everlasting impression. I spent 15 glorious days in this apartment while touring the capital and its neighboring historical towns. Being based there allowed me to have a safe and marvelous visit which will be cherished for a lifetime. María and her sisters are a lovely family whose intention is to provide the best experience their guests could have in their beloved city while residing in their exceptional apartment. Their listing and photos give an accurate account of what you would encounter. Indeed, I would recommend this property to family and friends alike and look forward to a future stay myself.
