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.

                                                                                                      We loved our stay in Madrid, such a nice apartment in a great location, just a 7 minute walk to the royal palace and the Plaza Mayor square with a great selection of restaurants and a meeting point for lot's of the tours in front of the information centre. We found this apartment to be in a perfect location for our needs everything was within a thirty minute walk so no need for us to use the metro. We were warmly greeted by Carmen and Manual and they provided us with all the information regarding how to use the facilities within the apartment, if any had been forgotten they provide a comprehensive users guide left on a shelf with loads of guide books/information regarding the sites of Madrid. They provided us with lots of local recommendations on things to do, places to see, restaurants /bars to go too and general local knowledge which we found very helpful. The Apartment is on the top floor of a historic building but decorated in a modern way. The facilities are clean and are in good condition and the kitchenware is plentiful and of good quality. The air conditioning is excellent and runs quickly and quietly cooling down the apartment after a long busy day sight seeing. The Wifi internet was quick and no problems with drop outs or buffering issues like you get when staying in some of the hotels in Spain! Overall we had a fantastic experience and have no problem recommending this apartment and the owners. Thank you Carmen and Manual

Madrid is a really vibrant and friendly city. Highly recommended! ! We were able to do virtually all the main sites by foot from this apartment.
