About Gorete Fieira Novack
Our family moved from California to Madrid in the year 2000. We love Madrid and I am sure that all our guests will love it too. I like to meet my guests and always try to be as helpful as possible. We do have several apartments in the same building and if you read our reviews you will see that most people really enjoyed their stay with us. I look forward to hosting you in Madrid. Gorete

Why Gorete Fieira Novack chose Cortes
Location, location, location! This is smack-dab in the middle of the historic Barrio de las Letras (Literature Neighborhood) very romantic, safe and with countless places to eat, people-watch, on a pedestrian street (no traffic).
What makes this Apartment unique
The building was completely gutted a few years ago and they saved the facade and the 100 year old staircase, but everything else is brand-new modern construction. We have furnished and equipped the apartment with everything we would like to find in a rental, we use VRBO ourselves when we travel so we understand that small details are paramount.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.

Fantastic flat in the heart of Madrid
Gorete’s apartment in the heart of Madrid was everything we hoped for and more! The apartment is even more beautiful than the pictures. It is located on a busy street lined with cafes, bars, and shops (but quiet at night with the doors closed) and is within walking distance of Puerto del Sol and many other major attractions. Upon arrival, Alicia met us as planned and even allowed us to check in early. The delicious bottle of Rioja wine and treats were unexpected and appreciated. Definitely choose this apartment for your next trip to Madrid!
Superbly managed and maintained!
This apartment was superbly located, very comfortable, attractive and equipped with every amenity we could want for our one-week stay. We had spent the previous week hiking in the Alpujarras, so we especially appreciated having a washer/dryer and a comfortable king size bed. The bathroom was well laid out with good water pressure, drainage and hot water supply. While we didn't cook (too many restaurants & cafes nearby), the kitchen was well equipped and we appreciated having a good size fridge to store drinks.
A key issue when you rent through VRBO is whether or not the owner will be reliable in terms of informing you of important details in advance and showing up at the agreed upon time to let you in. Gorete was superb in this regard! She sent a 9-page document with FAQs as soon as we booked and everything unfolded exactly as we expected. Alicia was waiting to meet us and explained everything we needed to know (she also gave us a notebook of instructions for use of all appliances in Spanish, English & French).
We knew we were dealing with someone trustworthy as soon as we made our reservation and we are very satisfied customers now that our trip is over. If you are going to Madrid, you can't go wrong by staying at this place!
Lovely aparment in Literary Quarter
We really enjoyed our 6-day stay in Gorete's flat on C/ de Las Huertas in Madrid. The location could not have been better--a comfortable walk east to the Prado and other museums and the green of the Parque de Retiro, and west to the Plaza del Sol, shopping and the Palacio Real. And wonderful restaurants and cafes in-between! For longer adventures, the apartment is around the corner from Metro Anton Martin and only 3 stops from Atocha Train Station-very convenient.
The flat's amenities were top-notch and Gorete provided for every need imaginable! Above all, the unexpected washer-dryer! The thoughtful bottle of wine, extra chargers, iron and ironing board, additional pillows and fleecy throws so appreciated.
Pristine and beautifully designed, the apartment made down-time so comfortable. The sunlit balcony was just right for a glass of wine, writing postcards, organizing our next day's agenda.
Gorete's on-site manager, Alicia, was friendly, responsive, professional--everything one would want.
Muchisimas gracias, Gorete y Alicia. 5 Stars, A++++
We had a wonderful stay in this apartment, which was smack dab in the middle of the best part of the city—walking distance to the great museums, theaters, and the train station. It was spotlessly clean and had a lovely kitchette and everything you need. Our only problem was noise late at night from the apartment over ours—noisy closet doors especially. But we would stay there again.
Home Away from Home
We have stayed in Gorete’s apartments 3 times, and could not be more enthusiastic about the apartment and the location. First, Gorete, is an incredibly warm and personable owner, and Alicia, who meets you when you arrive, is very helpful. She introduces you to how to enter the very secure building and the apartment. The apartments are very comfortable with well-equipped kitchen units, and and a bathroom with nice showers with good water pressure. We feel that this is the best location in Madrid being fairly close to Puerto del Sol, Mercado Anton Marin, Mercado San Miguel, Plaza Mayor, the Prado, Reine Sophia, the Thyssen, El Retiro Park and Atocha station. There is also a very convenient taxi stand one block away at Santa Angel making it easy on the early mornings when we leave for the airport (30 euros). There are so many good restaurants and tapas bars close by. Just to list a few, our favorites are Albertos, Ana La Santa, the Vinotecta, Casa Abuelo (a must if you like garlic shrimp), Cervantes (Plaza Jesus) and Marisquería Perlora, a terrific fish restaurant. In short, this apartment is a perfect place to stay in Madrid, and it now feels like our home away from home.
