Make a holiday apartment in Retiro your home away from home

Living in a Retiro holiday apartment during a holiday in Spain is as close to fantasy as reality can get. Retiro is a striking neighbourhood in the southeast area of Madrid. This district is home to one of Madrid’s most popular parks – the Retiro Park, also known as Parque del Retiro. It is one of the more traditional and laid-back neighbourhoods in Madrid. Those renting a holiday flat or apartment in Retiro will be sure to have quick access to the city centre and will have the added advantage of being close to one of the busiest parks in the city, while enjoying a less costly-accommodation compared to that in the centre of Madrid. Apart from large holiday apartments in Retiro, backpacking tourists will also find affordable accommodation studios; there’s something for everyone.

Things to do

-The Retiro Park: The park was originally created as a royal park in the Real Sitio del Buen Retiro Palace. Retiro stands for retreat, hence the name of the park and palace. It was opened to the public in 1868, and has since become a part of Madrid. In the park tourists will find two museums – an army museum known as Museo del Ejército and Casón del Buen Retiro, a museum with a collection of 19th and 20th century paintings, including works by Joaquín Sorolla. There’s also a lake in the park called the Estanque del Retiro – where boat-riding is a popular weekend activity – a glass building known as the Palacio de Cristal and a rose garden called the Rosaleda.

-Museo del Ejercito: It is an army museum that cover’s Spain’s military history. It houses various military artefacts and aims to give a description of the history of Spain’s armed forces. The museum’s collection includes 18,000 items from Spain’s military past, the most important being the sword (La Tizona) used by El Cid to expel the Arabs from Spain. Tourists booked in Retiro holiday apartments, especially those interested in military history will relish their time here.

-The Puerta de Alcalá: This monumental building is located in the Plaza de la Independencia in Madrid, near the city centre. It was designed by the Italian architect Francisco Sabatini; however, the six ornamental statues that embellish the top of the gate were the work of sculpture artists, Francisco Gutiérrez and Roberto Michel. Its construction was completed in 1769 and its official inauguration was held in 1778. The plaque at the gate’s highest point that reads: ‘REGE CARLO III ANNO MDCCLXXVIII’ honours the date of the gate's inauguration by King Carlos III.

-Paseo de la Argentina: It is a road lined with statues that are dedicated to Spanish monarchs. The statues were originally built as decorations for the Royal Palace but King Charles III requested that they be removed from the palace. They were too many statues; some of them remained in the city but some were transported to other provinces. Art lovers among those residing in Retiro holiday homes must stop over here.

Weather in Retiro

Spring and summer are the most popular seasons for tourism in Retiro. This is when the weather is warmest. Visitors are likely to find all corners of the Retiro Park occupied by both locals and tourists – either sun-bathing or being entertained by street musicians, jugglers, fortune tellers and painters on the park grounds.

Retiro is approximately 14 km away from Barajas airport. To get to their Retiro holiday homes from here, holidaymakers can either hire a car, a taxi or the metro – which is the fastest means of transport in Madrid. The nearest metro stops are Retiro and Ibiza. Alternatively, they can take the bus which passes through Retiro several times in a day.

The apartment has all the needs for a couple with added bonus of an outdoor terrace. Local area is delightful with lots of little owner shops of all types. Plenty of bakers, little cafe's and fresh produce shops. Transport is easy from airport with a couple of changes and arrives at your destination within 45 mins for about 5 euros. The local metro stop is no more than 10 mins and line 1 takes you right into the heart of Madrid. I can recommend this apartment to anyone wishing to visit Madrd

Location is also good, about 7mins walk to nearest metro Anton Martin. Two metro stops to Puerta de Sol which is more or less the centre of Madrid. Most attractions are within walking distance from Puerta de Sol. Definitely recommended.
