We are a family of 5. We stayed in Villa Lara in October.
Lovely house, compact but with everything you need. Beautiful location in the mountains. Miraflores was quiet in the Autumn but I'm told lively in Summer. A car is definitely needed as the house is accessed via some very steep hills. Village has everything you need for groceries.
Weather this time of year can be cold so bring warm clothes and be prepared for wet days as well as some lovely warm weather. We didn't get to swim as the weather was unsuitable but the pool looks great and it would be a lovely way to cool down in the Summer.
There are lots of maps, brochures and guides in the house to help choose trips and activities. There is also a tourist office in the village. Madrid is about 45 mins by car. We avoided driving into the city by parking at a train station in the suburbs and taking a train. Would recommend Segovia for a day. Make sure to visit the castle and take the motor way! Otherwise the road is uphill and seriously twisty and windy. Also, the Bernabeu Stadium a big hit with kids. Lots of galleries to visit. There is free entrance on certain days.
Sine, the owner, was great to deal with. Would definitely consider another holiday here again.
