Make a holiday apartment in Ciudad Lineal your home away from home

Holidaymakers looking for a more urban area to live in during their Spanish retreat should go for a cosy holiday villa in Ciudad Lineal. This town, whose name means Linear City in English, is one of the most unique and innovative urban areas both in Spain and the world. It was the brainchild of the Spanish architect Arturo Soria y Mata, whose aim was to create a fluid connection between the diverse neighbourhoods of Madrid to the countryside. Although his idea was well-received and supported, it didn’t succeed. Nevertheless, he still managed to leave his mark here as the main street in Ciudad Lineal – Arturo Soria Street – is named after him. People staying in Ciudad Lineal apartments offered by HomeAway will enjoy a good view of Parque Lineal Ciudad del Rio, as well as quick access to the Arturo Soria shopping mall (also named after the architect).

Things to do

-Parque Lineal Ciudad del Rio: During the warm seasons (spring and summer) this park is a popular destination for both locals and tourists; it is usually full during weekends. In this park, one will find people relaxing, having picnics, riding bicycles and skateboarding in the skate park, and or walking their dogs along the paths in the park. There are vendors selling snacks and ice cream all over the park, as well as several water fountains. People staying in holiday apartments in Ciudad Lineal will want to spend hours here.

-Food and drink: Of course one can gorge themselves on sumptuous tapas in the Spanish capital. Several bars and clubs serve this Spanish staple, but few give it an authentic Andalusian twist like La Gaditana does. It’s small, intimate atmosphere and the hordes of locals who eat there make for a memorable night out. Those who have had the crayfish served here rave about it no end.

-Museums: Madrid is replete with places to relive historical events and feast your eyes on unique works of art. The Pardo Museum is a good place for art lovers to start their explorations. It is housed in an ancient pink edifice surrounded by carefully tended gardens. Inside visitors will find a slew of intriguing collections from such recognised names as Leonardo Da Vinci, Velasquez, El Greco and Goya. Much smaller but no less captivating is the Cerralbo Museum where works of art and beautiful furnishings are displayed.

-Ciudad Lineal Jazz festival: This annual festival takes place every year, during the autumn season. It runs alongside the Festival de Jazz de San Juan Evangelista and the Madrid Jazz festival which runs for the whole of November. Musicians from all over the world make their way to Madrid to perform at this festival. For a number of days, there are concerts everywhere you go and the streets are filled with music. It is a feast for the ears for music lovers all over Madrid.

Very by good for an European standard

4 of 5
We are family of 4 and stayed in the flat for 3 nights. We enjoyed our stayed, the location of the property is superb close to everything shops, metro, lots of buses. The owner Braulio is very helpful and accommodating even he doesn't speak English with the help of google translator we got on. I will surely stayed again. The property is along a busy road which you would expect noise but once you are in the flat no single noice was heard, no disturbance from neighbors as well. Also the flat is very clean the owner looks after the flat.
