The Community of Madrid region
Apart from being a fascinating city in its own right, Madrid also makes an excellent base for visiting El Escorial, Avila, Cuenca, Aranjuez or Toledo, to name just a few places of interest, offering a very wide cultural and geographical diversity. Day trips can be easily organized to all these destinations. If you´re interested there are even ski resorts – open during the snow season - within easy reach of Madrid city. Weather is definitely a plus in Madrid - it´s a continental climate - hot and dry in summer, cold and crisp in winter, but the sun is nearly always shining!
Visitors to Madrid can´t go home without visiting the Prado/Thyssen-Bornemisza/Reina Sofia museum triangle, Retiro park, Plaza Mayor, Puerta del Sol and Royal Palace, all of which are within easy reach of the Ferraz apartment. The Templo de Debod area, where the apartment is situated, has also got some lesser known attractions to offer - most people are surprised to come across a 2,200 year old Egyptian temple in the middle of Madrid, but the Templo de Debod has been standing by the city´s Plaza de España since 1968, when it was donated to Spain by the Egyptian government.
Even when you live right by, the Templo de Debod never fails to impress and is the best place in Madrid to watch the sun go down. A perfect walk is down Ferraz, past the Templo de Debod, Plaza España, left at the Royal Palace, towards the Opera House and then along the Calle Arenal into Sol. Alternatively you can just jump on the metro and Sol is just three stations away.
For some spectacular views of Madrid take the cable car (don´t forget your camera) from Paseo Pintor Rosales - 3 minutes from the apartment – and on the way back chill out, away from the tourist traps, on one of the pavement terraces running alongside the beautifully natural Parque del Oeste. Afterwards you can visit the Goya frescos in the nearby San Antonio de la Florida chapel.
Getting back to basics, eating out and shopping for food near the apartment is good and varied, from gourmet to some of the best value for money places in town and everything, including freshly baked bread, is on your doorstep. The nearby Princesa area not only has a wide selection of stores, fashion outlets and so on, it also offers cafés, restaurants, cinemas and clubs with live music. Madrid is the city that never sleeps!

"Highly recommended apartment in good location"
We had a three night break in Madrid in February. It was our first visit to Madrid and I would highly recommend the city and Ferraz apartment. The Metro journey from the airport was straightforward and the apartment is about a 10 minute walk from the local Metro station.
The spacious accommodation was spotlessly clean, light and airy and has lots of homely touches. Mary gave us a generous welcome pack which included enough food for our breakfasts during our stay as well as wine, chocolates, biscuits, etc.
We were able to visit many of the main attractions on foot; however we did buy a travel pass which included the journey to and from the airport and enabled us to visit some of the sites which were further away such as the Santiago Bernabeu.
In summary, I would certainly recommend the Ferraz apartment to anybody taking a trip to Madrid.

"Spacious apartment, good location and friendly helpful host."
Mary was very pleasant and helpful. She provided instructions for us to take the metro from the airport and met us at Arguelles metro station, walking us to the apartment (5-10 minutes away) pointing out the supermarkets etc on the way.
The apartment is on the fourth floor with no escalator, but Mary's partner assisted with getting our luggage up the stairs. It is on a busy one-way road, which we found noisy. Fortunately the bedroom is back from the road a little with no windows and with the bedroom doors closed we enjoyed a good nights sleep.
The apartment is spacious and has a homely feel with the bed providing a comfortable nights sleep. There is plenty of wardrobe space and a good-sized clothes rack for drying clothes. The kitchen has microwave oven, stovetop, dishwasher and washing machine. The bathroom has a shower over bath.
We really appreciated the supplies that Mary had waiting for us including bread, milk, butter, conserve and condiments so we didn't have to rush off to the supermarket to get supplies. The wine and chocolates were also a nice treat.
The apartment was very convenient for our needs. It is about a 15-20 minute walk to the Palacio Real and Plaza Mayor is a bit further on. It is a long but manageable walk to the museum quarter and there is the option of the metro. The Arguelles metro stop is only a 5-10 minute walk from the apartment and the metro is a convenient and easy way to get around Madrid.
The apartment is also only a 20 minute walk from Principe Pio station to catch the bus to Sergovia and a 15 minute walk in the opposite direction to Moncloa bus station to catch the bus to El Escorial. The metro takes you to Atocha Renfe for the train to Toledo. These offer an economical and easy way to visit these sights on your own and at your own pace rather than taking a tour. We don't speak Spanish but doing these trips by public transport was easy. Hence the apartment provided a great base for us to explore Madrid and the sights nearby.
In summary, Mary was very pleasant and easy to deal with. The apartment is well equipped and spacious. Our only reservation was the road noise but with the bedroom doors closed we slept well. The location was also great for our needs and we would certainly stay here again.
