About Frank Diephuis

With a passion for nature, mountain sports and restoring historic buildings, the purchase of Villa Carmen in Miraflores de la Sierra was a logical decision. It took two years to restore and decorate the house and obtain the appropriate permissions for opening it as a Casa Rural (Bed & Breakfast).

Frank Diephuis purchased this chateau / country house in 2007

Cosy New Year's Weekend With Friends

Cosy New Year's Weekend With Friends
  • 5 of 5
After having spent two New Year's Eve in the Belgian Ardennes, I finally convinced my Dutch sister and her friends that Madrid's Sierra is at least as beautiful. So we booked Frank's casa rural with a typical Dutch touch of "gezelligheid"(=cosiness). We definitely had a blast, enjoying the chimney, the couch AND the wonderful surroundings, doing several hikes in all possible directions. Frank took care of the slightest detail! I can recommend this to EVERYONE that wants a weekend away from it all!

Wish we had more time

  • 5 of 5
Great place to experience true Spanish living in luxury, and discover Madrid and surrounding area. Owner is an excellent host and best travel guide. I would follow his itinerary again. We were able to see Toledo Segovia El Escorial, Avilla and following owner's tips for the hidden gems in the region, the nature drive, medieval villages and monasteries. The best part was coming home to the Villa do some cooking along with wine. Our daughter adopted the neighborhood cat, and we all had had a great time.
The villa had all the comforts of home, walking distance to all amenities in town to do shopping or dinning out. We would definitely visit again.
More than enough for our family of four, easily suitable for 6 people.

Recommended - beautiful villa, great location

  • 5 of 5
Villa Carmen is an absolutely beautiful villa in a great location (quiet residential road with hardly any cars driving past). Has large outdoor area with enough room to sit on the top patio or by the large pool, which is not overlooked. The two are separated by 12 steep stone steps. Rooms are spacious with stone walls and high ceilings, keeping the villa cool. It was very clean and had essentials inc microwave, kettle, dishwasher & washing machine.

The owner of the villa, Frank, is extremely friendly and helpful. We didn't have any problems and he made sure we had everything we needed (even went out immediately when he realised we didn't have a hair drier and bought one, even though he was going away that day, and most shops were closed, being Sunday). Frank recommended some really nice restaurants as well as places to go if we wanted a day trip, worth asking him for tips!

The town is 10 mins walk away and has some lovely restaurants, most serving until around 10pm. One restaurant, Ilerja, at the end of the parade, serves amazing steaks, not too pricey! Staff are very helpful and friendly. A restaurant which served good Tapas and succulent steak was by a church on a cobbled street (can't remember the name, Frank will know).

One restaurant TO AVOID is Meson Maito - food was disgusting. Lamb soup had been bulked up with soggy bread and lumps of fat, the salads were un-appetising. Staff were unhelpful, bordering on rude. Cost of the meal for 6 people which included 2 soups, 4 salads and 6 Cokes was well over 100euros.

The supermarket is about 5 mins walk away (up steep hill, probably not suitable for those with walking difficulties) and is quite large - sells anything you’d need for the week. We got fresh bread from a little shop in town (check name with Frank) and opposite is a deli with a huge range of ham and cheese.

Madrid is an hour away, bus goes from the main road (5 mins walk away). When you get to the bus station I'd recommend finding another bus that goes straight to the town centre (Sol) as we tried to walk before realising it would take 2 hours. We had a car as it was cheaper than getting transfers from the airport as there were 6 of us. Handy for trips to supermarket but unless you’re planning day trips you wouldn't really need one.

I’d definitely recommend visiting Villa Carmen. We had a lovely, relaxing holiday, and ate delicious food - all in a stunning location.

If I get the chance to go back again then I will do!

Owner's Response: Thank you Emma for your kind review. It was a pleasure to have you and your family in Villa Carmen and I surely hope you will have the chance to come back some day in the future. Concerning your comments on the restaurants, this is very helpfull for our future clients.. I will prepare for our guests a "scorecard", keeping track of the quality of food & services provided by the local restaurants.
Concerning transportation, and for those that would rather not rent a car, please let me know and I will be happy to organize the transfer to/from the airport for groups up to 6 persons.
Kind regards, Frank

A week in Miraflores

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this beautiful house for a week, together with our one year old daughter. We had a very good stay, the owner is very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't too good so the water in the swimming pool wasn't warm enough to swim in. This place offers enough to enjoy your holiday though; it's close to Madrid and other places of interest and is surrounded by mountains.
Well worth a visit!
