The accomodation was exactly as described, unique and full of character. Situated in a residential area which provided a quiet environment to relax. However, nothing available to visit within walking distance so transport a necessity. If you are wanting to site see then probably best to hire a car in order to travel further afield. Bus into Madrid and El Escorial was very easy and budget tickets are available from the newsagent in Galapagar.
Susana was an excellent hostess and really looked after myself and 3 teenage children. We chose to stay at the home for most of our stay enjoying the pool. Susana has very good spoken English and is an excellent cook. She did both airport runs which was such a blessing and helped to make this one of the most relaxing, stressless holidays I have ever had.
If you are after a cultural holiday Madrid is full of opportunities and pick up a travel guide for tips on free access times.
Hope to return in the future.
