"We were welcome by the owner. He prepared for my familly some fuits and a bottle of wine..

The waterwill is really charming and well equiped, more than described. It is in the sierra at the north of Madrid. The nights are fresh. You have to leave the main road and go down in a small "private" valley. Strangely, there are no mosquitos!

Really, we spend a very nice week: partially some rest, partially some visits around."

At about 10 km from junction 69 of the A1 motorway (Madrid - Burgos).

The perfect holiday destination for nature and culture lovers. Located on an ancient Roman road, now hiking and biking trail, surrounded by the nature of the Sierra de Guadarrama. Also ideal as a base for day trips to Madrid, Segovia, El Escorial, Pedraza and many other historic towns and villages.
