Located in the very heart of one of Madrid’s most historic neighbourhoods, this two bedroom apartment offers guests the opportunity to experience the Spanish capital at its most atmospheric. Known as the Barrio de Las Letras in reference to its literary and culturally rich past, the area immediately surrounding the apartment has been home to a number of famous Spanish artists and writers over the years. The neighbourhood is known for its lovely architecture, quirky boutiques, and traditional taverns and restaurants. In the quiet, cobbled streets of the Barrio de Las Letras, guests are just a stone’s throw from many of Madrid’s top sights and attractions. The famous ‘Big Three’ art museums are all within walking distance, as is the beautiful inner-city Retiro Park. Also nearby is the central Puerta del Sol, which then leads further north to the lovely art deco Gran Via avenue. A number of different metro and bus stations are within easy reach, meaning guests can explore the rest of the city and beyond with ease.
Situated on the second floor of a traditional Madrid building, the exterior-facing apartment has been beautifully renovated into a practical yet stylish open-plan space. The large living area includes a sitting room with two traditional balconette windows that look out over the street below, and a small desk or study area that is ideal for students or those that need to work from home. The dining area leads directly onto the kitchen, which comes fully equipped with everything guests may need during their stay. Each of the two bedrooms has been decorated in keeping with the rest of the apartment, and feature built-in storage space. The entire apartment has been furnished to the very highest standard, with contemporary pieces, rustic style wooden flooring and a soft, soothing colour palette. A tastefully renovated apartment in one of Madrid’s most exciting neighbourhoods, this property is a great option for those looking to immerse themselves in the city’s history and culture.
