Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Spain - San Lorenzo de El Escorial

3 bedroom apartment 5 mins walk away from historic town centre & mountain walks

This lovely and well-equipped 3 bedroom apartment boasts 2 terraces from which you can enjoy the beautiful views over the mountain sierra while you dine outside. Its location offers the best of both worlds, as you are only 5 mins walk away from the town centre with all its restaurants, cafes, shops and local amenities; and 5 mins walk away from the woods and mountains. The apartment is on the top floor of a four storey building. There is off-street parking outside the building and the flat is on a quiet residential road. There is no swimming pool as such with the apartment, but there are two great public swimming pools in San Lorenzo de el Escorial: one is the sports' centre with an indoor pool and two outdoor ones (large one and toddler pool), and the other is the one at the golf course. The neighbours are all locals and very welcoming.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
  • not suitable for elderly or infirm
  • wheelchair inaccessible

A peaceful lovely flat near everything.

  • 4 of 5

My family and I just want to recomend this flat to everyone who wants to be in an extremelly pleasant, lovely and peaceful village... just half an hour away from Madrid, just one hour away from Segovia...; so, if you don't want to miss a thing about a big and interesting city like Madrid, but don't want to melt into crowds of people, just get in touch with Liz, and just enjoy her hospitality!!!

Tres agréable découverte....

  • 4 of 5

Situé idéalement a deux pas du coeur de ville et du monestère, cet appartemtnt bien équipé et pourvu de 2 terrasses rst tres agréable. Les attentions des propriétaires qui donnent des pistes sur ce qu'il faut découvrir est un plus. L'impression d'etre en visite chez des amis laisse un souvenir de vacances réussies. Le coeur de l'Espagne est tout simplement fabuleux. Seul bémol...Les toilettes sont dans la douche, pas toujours facile le matin, mais enfin, ce sont de belles vacances! Merci à Elisebet, toijours aimable, disponible et réactive.

A place to return

  • 5 of 5

A cosy and comfortable flat makes a perfect base for sightseeing especially if you have a car. Communication with the landlord was excellent and she provides detailed information on what to do and see. We found diverse attractions and activities and had a handful of destinations for amazing daytrips. Location close to the town centre facilitates straightforward provision and proves helpful if you are fed up with driving. We could have stayed longer (one can stay there for a month without getting bored) but it is prudent to leave something for another visit. If you have no issues with stairs and hilly streets this is definitely a place worth consideration.

A perfect retreat for art and nature

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is situated towards the top of the village of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, giving stunning views over the hills and the plain below; perfect for mornings on the balcony. We chose the area as it combined the possibility of visits to Madrid, Avila, Segovia etc. with the proximity of areas of natural beauty offering relaxing walks and picnic opportunities. We were very pleasantly surprised with the town - peaceful squares, ample eating establishments and friendly locals, and totally blown away by the monastery/palace with its stupendous art collection and architecture. Anyone interested in art and nature will be spoilt here and love the comfortable, well appointed apartment which we found perfect for our needs. A real 'home away from home' feel with none of the starkness and lack of personality of a hotel room; all requests for information or help were met promptly and efficiently and the apartment is very well equipped. We would love to visit again.

Perfectly amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The place was perfectly located with an amazing view of the sunrise over Madrid. The little town is so cute and we really enjoyed walking to the Monestario and strolling in the gardens. Elisabet was very helpful and a pleasure to do business with. Thank you for opening your home, we loved playing Scotland Yard!

lovely place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the apartment with our 3 children (12, 14 and 16). We loved the apartment: It is tastefully furnished, all you need is present, it is clean, has plenty of space and also there is much to see in the area. Madrid is not too far away and easily reached by car. In other words, highly recommended!

San Lorenzo de el Escorial is at the heart of Madrid's mountain sierra, and is only 50 km away from the capital. It is a UNESCO protected town famous throughout Spain for its architectonic and historical heritage, and its natural beautiful setting. Places of historical interest are: the Monastery, Valle de los Caídos, and the town centre itself. For the nature lover, there are plenty of mountain walks, a nature centre and an animal sanctuary nearby.There is a wide range of restaurants, street cafes and bars that serve excellent food and wine. It also offers all the local amenities you may need. There are excellent and frequent (every 10-30 mins) bus and rail services that connect San Lorenzo to Madrid in 50 mins for 3.50€.

It's an ideal base to explore the historical cities in the centre of the peninsula, such as Segovia, Avila, Toledo or Salamanca, and the different tourist attractions of the Guadarrama mountain range, La Granja of San Ildefonso, the Navacerrada Ski Resort, etc.
