Silvia is from Madrid; George from New York, but we live in Paris. Alfredo and Marta will be welcoming you and taking care of you on our behalf while you enjoy our cozy nest in Madrid.Neighborhood overview
Madrid is more than a city for us. Silvia was born and raised here. Madrid flows through her veins. Every cobblestone is a moment in time, a chance encounter, a reflection on friends who have come and gone and those who remain. Empanadas? They’re not just a snack, but where Patricia, an old friend, sells them, homemade, delicious and a short walk from home. We invite you to be a part of this unique experience.Getting around
Madrid’s legendary Rastro, the flea market, unfurls every Sunday. You overlook the antique market, but as you will wind your way through La Latina, it is more and more evident that there is something special in this place where old men watch over the relics of a bygone era and young entrepreneurs rediscover the old and incorporate the new. Narrow streets invite the curious to explore: your grandmother’s attic gives way to the guitar shop to the textiles to the art galleries to hand printed cards and engravings to the vegan restaurant to mushrooms reinvented to the 12 Euro lunch menu that could feed a family.
The neighborhood is not only home to a rich urban culture, but to the conveniences that are necessary for a comfortable stay. Within a five to ten-minute walk there are supermarkets, pharmacies and bakeries. Just a few steps away is the Centro Commercial that features butchers and fresh fish stand, a bakery, green grocers and shoe repair.
Situated near the Puerta de Toledo, you are just three minutes away from Line 5 on the Metro, linking you to all parts of the city, including the Casa de Campo, Madrid’s famed park and the Gran Via, the central avenue of the city. The river Manzanares and its riverside park are a fifteen minute walk away, offering another perspective on this most livable city.
