We rented Conde de los Gaitanes for a college reunion between three couples (we all studied in Madrid back in the day) and were just BLOWN AWAY! The house is perched on the top of a hill so you have the most gorgeous views out over the valley as well as total privacy, we didn’t hear a peep during our entire stay. We spent every afternoon by the pool which of course rolled into drinks and meals at the outdoor dining area. We appreciated all of the added extras such as a great coffee machine and three hours of cleaning per day (Spain Select sent the same cleaning lady every day so it was lovely to see a friendly face every morning – despite my broken Spanish!). All in all a very special retreat and perfect way to catch up between friends, we were just a short taxi ride from the ‘centro’ of Madrid and within walking distance of the La Moraleja town which is full of cool terraces.
