The house is a 45 minute drive from Madrid city centre and the same from Madrid airport. The village centre is a ten minute walk. Low cost airlines Ryanair and Easyjet fly into Madrid airport. The house is detached and stands on its own spacious 700 metre garden with a circular 5.5 metre pool in summer and a trampoline.
The dining room can seat 12 people comfortably and large double doors lead straight onto garden. There are buses every 30 minutes to Madrid. Miraflores can be used as a base for day trips to Segovia, el Escorial, La Granja, Pedraza, Sepulveda, Toledo, Aranjuez or Chinchon. Warner Brothers theme park is a one and a half hour drive. The ski resorts Valdesqui and Navacerrada are 45 minutes away by car. Salamanca, Avila and Cuenca are two hours away. From the south facing upstairs balcony there are views of up to 80 kilometres to the south and east. To the west and north is the Guadarama mountain range and La Pedriza natural park.
The village centre at 1150 metres is an easy 10 minute walk along quiet streets.. As it is 600 metres higher than the city of Madrid, this can be seen in the distance and the lights at night provide a wonderful spectacle. Madrileños use it as an escape from the summer heat. Leading out of the village is a road which leads to the mountain passes of Canencia at 1500 metres and Morcuera at 1800 metres. Depending on the year's snowfall, Morcuera which is 8 kilometres from the village, is used as a base for cross-country skiing.
Pick up and drop off to/from airport to house can be arranged for up to seven people + luggage at a cost of 50 Euros each way.
The village: One of the prettiest in the province of Madrid, the village centre of Miraflores is a ten minute stroll from the house. The village centre is completely pedestrianised and with its many bars and terrazas is an ideal spot to have your pre-lunch/dinner 'aperitivo' while children play safely within view on the plaza.
Madrid: Madrid is a 45 minute drive or an hour by buses which run every hour. Buses arrive in Plaza Castilla from where the metro can be taken to the Prado, Reina Sofia art gallery, Thyssen museum, Royal Palace, Plaza Mayor, shopping streets of Serrano and Goya and the Retiro (Madrid's version of New York's central park). The metro is one of the most efficient in Europe and runs from 6 a.m. to 2 a.m.
