Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Madrid North - Large country house with pool

Four bedroom estate in scenic village near Madrid

Gorgeous Castillian country house with spectacular views. One of the largest estates in historic area near center of town, it was built a century ago by a royal physician. House measures 320 sq. m. with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, large kitchen and a fabulously elegant living room. Large scented garden (2900 sq. m.) shaded by towering Atlas cedars. Private fenced-in swimming pool and sauna. A charming home unlike anything else on offer. Beautiful and elegant, with high ceilings, sun-filled rooms and large windows. Balconies and garden terraces open out onto a spectacular panorama. Located on a street of similarly magnificent chateaus. It's a short walk to the pedestrian-only centre with outdoor cafes, top-notch restaurants and any kind of shop you will need during your stay - grocery stores, pharmacies, bakeries, butcher, fishmonger, etc. Many open Sundays. Great place for visits to Madrid while experiencing Spanish country life.

The house has three floors. The main entrance opens onto the middle floor, with a living room, two bedrooms and a bathroom. There is a floor upstairs with the master bedroom and another bedroom. And the downstairs floor has a very large kitchen/dining room which opens out onto a balcony and a dining area in the garden. There is also a sauna and shower on the lower floor. Linens and towels are provided. --- Some of the reviews below refer to a cottage in a secluded corner of the property that may also be rented jointly or separately from the main house. Rates are approx 300-450 euros/week depending on the season. Please contact us for more info and photos.

Idyllic haven

  • 5 out of 5
This house is wonderfully situated and was perfect for our classy girlie break. There was plenty of space for us and the kitchen is really well kitted out. A coffee machine was a pleasant surprise. The bedrooms are really spacious and plenty of bathrooms too which was good for 6 girls!
Village within walking distance and plenty of good restaurants to choose from - also within easy driving distance of several good attractions.
Cannot recommend more.

Lovely house in beautiful location.

  • 5 out of 5
This is a lovely house in Miraflores. The location is fantastic. It is only a two minute walk into the town but the views from the back of the property are spectacular - the pictures do not do it justice.
The main sitting room is delightful - be careful of the main sofa, you may not want to get up from it! All the rooms give a spacious open feeling. Pool and garden were great.
Like a previous review the main upstairs bedroom can get a bit warm in the evening - this can be mitigated by keeping the window shut & the blind down during the day and then opening both these ard the doors on the bedroom opposite in the evening. A gentle breeze ensues. Some hanging space in the downstairs bedroom would be helpful. These are minor inconveniences.
The area is stunning for views, walks and wildlife. It is about a 40 minute drive to the centre of Madrid.
Both Jerome & Petra made the booking very easy.

the most beautiful place in a spectacular nature

  • 5 out of 5
it seems like a dream after our- the house had everything we need- it was a little piece of paradise, the space, the details, the sauna, the fire place, the kitchen, the bath... the sleep areas... more than perfect! The beautiful enviroment was also absolutly spectacular- one week was definitly too less to explore the beauty of the surrounding nature. Thank you! To Jerome- to give us the possibility to share such a great place with us... we all have definitly left a little piece of our hearts in Miraflores :) we're definitly coming back to this place someday

Beautifully renovated villa with a stunning view

  • 5 out of 5
Spanish traditional country home meets Swedish design: This is an extremely well kept property thanks to Jermome's and Petra's care and love for detail while renovating it. The peaceful setting is most inspiring. We ended up spending more time in the house itself than exploring the small village or hiking in the mountains...

Superb

  • 5 out of 5
6 of us had a fantastic time spending a week in the villa in the summer. Jerome made the whole process extremely easy in terms of correspondence pre arrival and the information provided was both extremely accurate and useful.
The Villa itself is very spacious, high spec and decorated to a fitting contemporary style. It is located well, a close stroll to the town where there are plenty of restaurants/cafes and a supermarket.
We would certainly recommend this villa to others and can see ourselves returning!
Only 1 criticism would be that the bedroom at the top of the house did get quite hot by the evening, but a fan is thoughtfully provided.
Overall, a great place! Thanks Jerome.

A real taste of Spain

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I have just spent an amazing week at Villa Maria Theresa with our son and his fiancée and our daughter and boyfriend. The villa was better than described and very spacious. The views were spectacular and the location perfect. A five minute walk takes you into the lovely village of Miraflores with great restaurants, bars and cheese, fish shops etc the locals were a lot of fun even though our Spanish was poor. We had lovely lunches at the villa trying the local delicacies. My son took his bike and my husband borrowed the mountain bike in the villa, they cycled up La Morcuera and on to Rascafia, a hard climb but a thrilling down hill. They also cycled many of the circular routes. Unfortunately I couldn't get a bike as the shop in Soto was shut each time I tried. I must stay again and take my own bike so I can climb La Morcuera too. I did go for a run up and around the village which was great apart from the barking dogs, although behind gates still pretty fearsome! Dogs barking through the night was annoying so if you are a light sleeper take ear plugs! A car is a must to see more, Rascafia was a lovely little village make sure you visit the chocolate shop, lots of samples to try, really tasty chocolate and not very expensive. We drove to Segovia for suckling pig a great drive. We took the bus to Madrid for a day trip, very easy to do and meant we could all enjoy a drink to two in the market, definitely worth a visit to try local foods and drinks. We drove to the rock pools in the national park, amazing views and scenery the pools were a little difficult to find and a wee bit disappointing but maybe we didn't find the best. We drove to Cotos the skiing village some amazing hill walks and saw black vultures,we were too late for the train return journey so go in the morning if you want to ride the train. Food was spectacular, our favourite meal was at El Club Allard in Madrid, but that was a present from our children for our wedding anniversary. Well worth a visit for a special occasion. In Miraflores we ate at Meson Maito a lovely meal, excellent service although a tad expensive. We had a great night at the Steak House the waiter was very helpful and with our broken Spanish and acting skills we had an amazing meal. As with all the other reviews the villa was exceptional and Jerome very helpful prior. The pool was cold and fresh great for water aerobics and the sauna a real treat. We were very comfortable, relaxed and would definitely return.

Car: recommended

The house is located in the picturesque village of Miraflores de la Sierra. It's one of about a dozen old aristocratic country houses on the most elegant street in town. Cool Miraflores is a favorite destination for Spaniards escaping the heat in Madrid.

A few minutes walk from the house are the forests of the Guadarrama Mountain National Park, a unique mountain range of central Spain with oak forests and alpine meadows. Great for countryside walks and mountain air. It´s a perfect base from which to explore to Madrid and surroundings. Close to 14th century El Paular Benedictine Monastery and the Royal Palace of San Ildefonso, a former summer retreat for Spanish kings. Toledo, Segovia, Avila are all about an hour drive. Cross country skiing and sledding just 10 minutes away. Ski resorts about 30 minutes drive. Frequent bus connections to Madrid.
