Carretas 101 is one of eight prime location, luxury, two-bedroom apartments, available exclusively from Spain Select. Situated just off the Puerta del Sol, the Carretas apartments put Madrid's most important attractions within walking distance. In less than five minutes, visitors can step out of the apartment building and walk directly to the city's famous Plaza Mayor, the centrepiece of the 'old Madrid' district known as Austrian Madrid. Just beyond the Plaza, visitors can continue walking to the Royal Palace and the Cathedral of the Almudena. Leaving the apartment and walking 10-15 minutes in the other direction, will lead visitors to the Atocha Train Station, and Madrid's three renowned art museums: the Prado, the Reina Sofia and the Thyssen-Bornemisza. The Puerta del Sol is one of the most well-known and busiest places in Madrid. This famous square is where the clock hangs that rings in the New Year in Spain, prompting Spaniards to eat a grape for each of the twelve chimes. Adjacent to the square is an extensive shopping district, which includes several buildings of the 'El Corte Ingl?s' department store chain. Crowded with tourists and locals by day, the area is also lively in the evenings as there are many restaurants, caf?s and bars nearby. Just a short distance away is the Plaza de Santa Ana, where there are many terraces for dining outdoors. As the geographic centre of both the city and, in fact, the entire country, the Puerta del Sol has excellent communications. Spain Select Carretas is a building that has been completely reconstructed in its interior, whilst maintaining its original fa?ade from the nineteenth century. Each apartment has been professionally decorated and equipped with top quality furnishings, original artwork and designer pieces such as the lamps. Carretas I is a bright two bedroom apartment, which has a living room with two balconied windows that look out onto the street below. It has marble floors throughout, the soft tones of which contrast nicely with the property's bold blue paintwork and decorative elements. The two bedrooms are situated in the interior of the building and are very quiet. The second bedroom has a single twin bed and ample wardrobe space. Please note that whilst the building has an elevator, there is a small staircase before you reach the lobby.

The Community of Madrid region

Starting at the famous Puerta del Sol and heading either north to the Gran V?a or east to the Plaza de Cibeles, the centre of Madrid hums with people at all hours of the day and night. The enormous Puerta del Sol is at the very heart of the capital, and has been used as the city?s traditional meeting spot for both locals and visitors alike for centuries. The busy streets that radiate out from Sol?s centre are all the beginnings of the roads that will eventually lead you to Spain?s other major cities ? each of the country?s six national roads has its humble origins at Kilometre Cero, right in front of the Casa de Correos clock tower. Sol is also home to the statue of the Bear and the Berry Tree, the official emblem of Madrid, and normally surrounded by tourists trying to take photographs. The centre is packed with shops and services, including the large Spanish department store El Corte Ingl?s and a wide selection of both Spanish and international brands including Zara, Mango and H&M.

Madrid City

The pedestrianised streets of Preciados and Carmen head north towards the wide Gran V?a Avenue and are excellent options for those looking to do some serious shopping during their stay. Heading east down the calle de Alcal? brings you past one of Madrid?s oldest cultural and art centres, the C?rculo de Bellas Artes, where you can enjoy a film or art exhibition, or simple grab a coffee in the extraordinarily beautiful caf? and restaurant. The nearby Plaza de Cibeles is home to both the impressive Palacio de las Telecomunicaciones and the elegant Bank of Spain. The capital?s irrepressible and contagious energy starts here ? so take a deep breath, dive in and see what Madrid is all about.
