The Madrid region
Visitors and residents alike can enjoy the sun, go for walks, go rowing or feed the squirrels in Madrid's large, impeccable parks and gardens. The Retiro Park, once playground of Spanish Monarchs, the Casa de Campo and the Juan Carlos I Park among others make Madrid one of Europe's greenest capitals. Madrid is also one of Europe's most attractive business centres. Its international airport receives more than one thousand flights weekly from all over the world and it has two main conference centres, as well as the modern Campo de las Naciones exhibition centre and a capacity to hold more than 80,000 people in other varied conference and meeting facilities.
If there is one thing, however, that characterizes Madrid, it is the deep, contagious passion for life reflected in its friendly, welcoming people. Madrid boasts concerts, exhibitions, ballets, select theatre productions, and the latest cinematographic releases. You can sample a wide variety of the finest Spanish and international cuisine or be enchanted by its bars and taverns. These are just some of Madrid's leisure alternatives, alongside tempting shopping in the most traditional establishments and world-famous outlets stocking the finest international brands.
Madrid's happening nightlife is another major attraction. Its pubs, bars, discos and flamenco clubs have a tremendous atmosphere, while by day there are traditional verbenas (open-air dances), popular festivals or the San Isidro bullfighting festival - rated as the world's most important.

We stayed in the appartment in San Lorenzo over the christmas period in 2011 - the town of san Lorenzo is in a beautiful location and the appartment itself has wonderful views over the mountains from the front balcony. The appartment has a lovely home from home feeling, with lots of personal touches which made it a really relaxed and comfortable stay. In San Lorenzo the monastery of el escorial is quite awe inspiring and well worth several visits, the christmas full size nativity scenes throughout the centre of the town were also quite something to see and made it a very memorable christmas stay. We also did several walks into the nearby mountains, and to the city of Segovia with it'sancient aquaduct and castle was well worth a visit. A wonderful holiday and a lovely comfortable appartment with lots of helpful information supplied by the owners, i would highly recommend.
