Our home

Our apartment is on a top floor of a historic building in the center of Madrid. it is located in the upscale 'barrio de Salmanca' (metro Goya and Lista). It is very safe and there is a live-in doorman in the building. There are 2 bedrooms. The main bedroom has an ensuite with bathtub (jacuzzi). The second bedroom is our baby bedroom but it also has a very comfortable futon and can accomodate 2 adults. Overall the apartment can accomodate 4 persons plus 1 young child.
The second bathroom is across the hall from the second bedroom. The kitchen is well equiped. Our cleaning lady will comne once a week (included in the swap). We have cable TV, sound system and high speed/WI-FI internet. Our terrace is perfect to chill out and enjoy a drink. There is also a BBQ and we have a folding table and 4 chairs if you want to eat on the terrace. One section of the living room is now organized as a playroom for our son (1 year old) but we can also clear this space and create an office area if needed (like it was before) with all the necessities to work.

Who we are

  1. I am a Project Manager and work for a Medical Translation company. I can work from home if I wish to. My husband is a Petroleum Engineer and work on a rotation schedule in Africa (28 days there and 28 days off). We are therefore able to live and work wherever we want. We would like to take this opportunity and organise 1 or 2 exchange a year to live in a different place/culture. Ideally, we would like to stay from 1 month to 3 months. We only need high-speed internet so I can work. The exchange does not have to be silmutaneous if the person want to come to Madrid in summer, we can arrange to leave our place (we often sopend time in France where I am from or in canada where my husband is from). We are very open to suggestions and places.

    We are going to Bali in November (1 exchange organized) SO THE APPARTMENT IS FREE FOR 3 WEEKS IN NOVEMBER 2010 AS WELL THE WEEK OF AS CHRSTMAS/NEW YEARS EVE.

    We would be interested in ANY offer. WE COULD COME LATER THIS YEAR IN YOUR PROPERTY. if you can come in Novmber or for Christmas, just tempt us.

    Also of interest:
    Another stay in Bali (Ubud or other area, for 1 week in November)
    An exchange in Portugual or the south of Spain for March 2011
    An exchange in Mexico (Yucatan prefered) in March 2011

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our neighbourhood is the 'barrio de Salamanca'. We are close to 3 metro stations (less than 3 minutes walking) Goya, Lista and Nunes de Balboa). It is a very high-end neighboourhood full of boutiques and there is also a nice food market close by. We have also a supermarket 3 blocks from the house. We are located 10 minutes walking from the Retiro park where you can go pique-nique, walking, jogging... There are also several playgrounds for kids at a short distance of the house. There are a lot of bars, tapas places, gym clubs and restaurant around. The center of Madrid is not very big and we barely use public translaportation as we prefer to walk everywhere. If you want to go out, you are 5-10 minutes by metro from the other main areas of madrid (4 metro stop to Sol, 6 metro stop to Malassana).
