    We have been spending Christmas and honestly we were very happy with both the house and the owner. The accommodation has everything you might need to spend your holidays despite being in a rustic setting. I recommend the extra breakfast, it is excellent. The town has a lot of charm, and you are a stone's throw from the entire Sierra Nosrte de Madrid including El Escorial. We have been 2 marriages with our children together with six adults.

  • We have had a great weekend in November several friends. The house is very well equipped, very good mattresses and bed and bath linens. I would only put one downside, the refrigerator is a bit small for a group of 10 and I would put a glass for wine or a few more glasses. Well located in the town and without a single noise. Great to be able to have breakfast on the patio all together. They provided us with breakfast, very abundant and rich, although the only local products were the buns, the rest, including cold cuts, from a normal store, are good for the little they charge, but they were not as they said local products.

  • We were lucky enough to stay in this rural complex made up of two little houses in the middle of the Biosphere Reserve, in the surroundings of Hayedo de Montejo, for a weekend in the month of October. The homes provide everything you can imagine, among other things, WIFI and Netflix on the Smart-TV. They left us plenty of wood to light the fireplace, although it was not necessary because it was warm. The rooms very well decorated, the perfect mattresses to sleep on.

Our children enjoyed it since the house has a kind of farm ideal for children to come into contact with animals: chickens, cows, horses, sheep and the playground. All very close to the accommodation. The very complete kitchen and the whole house very well used to make life. The area between mountains and nature is very pleasant and there are many nearby towns to visit.

All kindness, and although they could have entered the apartment to leave a chair, invoice and others, they totally reserved our privacy. If you have to put some but, the pets of others were not silent all weekend, and it was too hot inside, a couple of fans would not have been bad at all.

Marta the hostess has taken care of solving our doubts and welcoming us. Although in principle it was only a weekend rental, we decided to stay 2 more days because the area gives a lot of itself and on a tourist level there is a lot to visit in Somosierra. We recommend you do the Camino de Francia.

Welcome to Madrid

What would you say if I told you that you don't need to go very far from the capital of Spain to see a different side of this autonomous community of Spain? Because the ideal place to enjoy of a rural break from the frenzy of daily life is closer than you think, and we can guarantee that you will be surprised by the natural richness and beautiful views that are just a drive away from the capital and which are ideal if you want to do rural tourism in Madrid.

In this region, we have some of the most beautiful and iconic natural reserves of Spain, such as the one in Peñalara, or the natural reserve that comprised the Valle de Lozoya and the Sierra de Guadarrama.

On the other hand, and far from the urban epicentre, this region is filled with places full of history and architecture, such as San Lorenzo del Escorial in the north, or the palace of Aranjuez to the south.

The amount of history and art that lives in these monuments has lead to the creation of a web of castles, museums and palaces which are mapped out easily for them to be discovered by visitors.

We are also describing part of the cultural heritage of this region when we talk about the local gastronomy. You will find in the menu of any traditional kitchen of this region, culture and tradition manifested in dishes such as the 'cocido madrileño' or the 'callos a la madrileña', without forgetting about having some Aranjuez strawberries, or melon from Villaconejos for dessert.

Don't waste another second and get yourself a break from life in the capital, without having to travel for hours and hours.

Where to sleep in Madrid

If you're planning to travel to Madrid, the first thing you need to take into account are the dates you will be staying, and that you will need to find accommodation in advance. Staying in the capital will be an almost impossible quest if you don't do it in advance, and backed up with a very wide offer of quality tourist accommodation, with options such as hotels and hostels to choose from.

But what we really recommend is to stay in the outskirts of the cit, which are close enough to be able to spend the day in the capital and, at the same time, enjoy of the other more calm and comfortable side of Madrid.

We recommend doing tourism in San Lorenzo de El Escorial, and its monastery that you mustn't forget to visit; a true landmark of Madrid's identy. Another must is Alcalá de Henares, the birthplace of Miguel de Cervantes, and with its characteristic stone-paved streets, and landmark monuments.

Aranjuez and its Palacio Real, the main square and the air of tradition of Chinchón, or the castle and the Pedriza in Manzanares del Real, are some of the options for a perfect trip around the province.

Traditionally, the gastronomical tradition in Madrid has always been associated with very filling and caloric recipes, and with vegetable produce.
