Our home

We'd like to offer a light and spacious 4th floor traditional apartment in central Madrid which we have recently restyled to be modern and practical without losing its former decorative details. It has high ceilings and doors with oak floors throughout and is partly air-conditioned.

Both the master bedroom and the living/dining room have French windows opening onto a balcony.

Property features

Who we are

  1. I'm Andy (44). I'm a freelance English language teacher serving multinationals & banks.
    Ana, who is 37 and from Madrid, runs a family business. We have a little boy who will be 3 years old in August.

    We have both travelled extensively around Spain, Europe and beyond.

    Ana, for example has visited India on 2 occasions to practice yoga and to travel 'native'. I rounded off a 3-month cultural exchange trip to Ontario with a tour of the Canadian rockies and Vancouver when I was younger.

    So we're both used to travelling, to immersing ourselves in other cultures, and to learning from other lifestyles.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live in a cherry tree lined side-street in Madrid's predominantly residential Chamberi District.

We are a stroll away from Madrid's famous 'Golden Triangle of Art', consisting of the Prado and Reina Sophia museums and the Thyssen art gallery.

On the way there you'll pass such land-marks as the National Library, the National Archaeological Museum and Colon (Christopher Columbus) square. Madrid's central 'Retiro' park and Botanic gardens are close by too.

That's not to mention theatres, cinemas, shops, jazz/rock/flamenco clubs and shows, outdoor 'terraza' and 'tapas' bars, restaurants and supermarkets. You name it, you'll find it- all close at hand.

Remember also that Madrid is the central hub of Spain's air, road and (high speed) rail networks so it really is easy to reach anywhere in the country quickly and comfortably.

Day trips to surrounding towns, cities and natural parks are recommended too. Check this:
