It is known as much for its traditional tabernas as for its moderns bars and restaurants. On any given evening,tourists are likely to find both residents and other visitors to the town outside – either enjoying a meal or a night out. Those thinking about renting a flat in Monloca-Aravaca, they will get to enjoy this wonderful atmosphere every single day for as long as they are on holiday.

Things to do

-Royal Palace: Also known as The Palacio Real, it is Madrid’s biggest building and also the biggest palace in Western Europe. It is located next to the Plaza de Oriente Square. It was built on the site of the old Alcázar, the Moorish castle that was burnt down in 1734. Apart from the beautiful Sabatini and Campo del Moro parks surrounding the palace, visitors to the palace will also get to see some of the art work done by artists such as Giordano, Goya, and Tiépeleo. This is just one of many historical delights those booking Monloca-Aravaca holiday homes can look forward to.

-Royal Theatre: Right opposite the Royal Palace is one of the world’s most famous opera houses, boasting a fine stage and stunning acoustic settings. It was Queen Isabella II who requested that it be built, hence its nickname – Real (Spanish for Royal) and the theatre’s doors were opened in November 1850. It also has a museum, and offers tours to visitors everyday – whether or not there are performances showing. Residents of Monloca-Aravaca holiday rentals can take advantage of the chance to partake of Spanish musical heritage.

-Casa de Campo: It is the largest urban park in Spain. It had been open to the public for their use and enjoyment since the beginning of the Second Republic, but was closed down again for three years during which it was the main sight for battles and bombings during the Civil war. It was reopened in 1946; from then onwards, a lot of reforestation took place and sports and cultural facilities were built, forming what is now the largest green space in the city. The park is an ideal place for jogging, playing tennis, swimming, cycling, canoeing and triathlon.

-Casa-Museo Fuente Del Rey: The House-Museum Fuente Del Rey was opened on March 1st, 2011. It is solely dedicated to exhibiting Catalan art. In the museum’s possession is a collection of over 250 works of art (198 paintings, 37 sculptures and 27 drawings) produced between the mid-nineteenth century and the early twenty-first century. The museum was once the home of Francisco Daurella – a collector and patron of the arts. He had the building, as well as the garden transformed and renovated into permanent exhibition halls, rooms for temporary exhibitions and a multipurpose hall for cultural events. Some of the artists whose work is exhibited here include: Sorolla, Mariano Fortuny and Nonell.

Nicely Appointed Apartment in a Prime Location

4 of 5
We enjoyed our three nights in this simply but elegantly appointed apartment just steps from Calle Mayor--the big square surrounded by cafes and shops, and easy walking distance to The Prado and the Reina Sofia museums. The beds were quite comfortable and the kitchen modestly equipped. It would have been nice to have a little more seating in the living room--the couch and one lounge chair were not enough for our family of five. We also would have liked to have more places to hang clothes--one of the bedrooms has a huge closet, but the other two have no closet or clothes stand. But overall, it worked very well as a base for our weekend in Madrid.

Bright, beautiful and centrally located

5 of 5
The apartment is in a perfect location, on a lovely square, close to restaurants and the market. It is bright and airy, with two small verandas. The apartment is very comfortable and well equipped for cooking. Javier, who got us settled, was very friendly and helpful. Our only complaint was that when we called the office on arrival and 45 minutes later, they told us Javier was on his way and would be there soon, which was not true. They had not told him we had arrived! We ended up waiting close to two hours for him (again, not his fault and we was very gracious and apologetic when he got there).
