Make a holiday apartment in Moncloa-Aravaca your home away from home

It’s never enough to just live in a beautiful holiday home in Madrid; it has to be located in the right place in order to make the experience worthwhile. That’s why it’s worth looking at a holiday loft in the Moncloa-Aravaca area. Not only is this neighbourhood full of Spanish culture and history, but there are quite an number of interesting sights nearby, namely the Royal Palace, the Sabatini Gardens, Casa de Campo, the Almudena cathedral, e.t.c. 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.

An elegant stay in a superb Madrid apartment

5 of 5
The Ilaia Madrid apartment is superb. The owners too are a delight, warmly welcoming and very proud of offering a high quality and elegant stay for their visitors. Marisa and Manuel are indeed generously hospitable in supplying the necessities for guests to settle in. The apartment location is also excellent, close to a variety of restaurants, historic sites and major city landmarks, all within easy strolling distance. We shall certainly return to enjoy Madrid more from the beautiful Ilaia apartment as our base.

This is a stunning apartment

4 of 5
We stayed at this apartment for a week and loved it. It is clean with sufficient room for 4 people and has stunning views of the city and Casa de Campo. It is located a little away from the touristic center of the city (about 1.5 miles from the big museums), with a Metro stop opposite. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that the air conditioning would not turn off, making it extremely cold at night and Select Madrid was not very responsive. Nonetheless, that was a minor problem compared to the pleasure of returning to this spacious, open apartment each evening after a full day of sightseeing.
