Spacious, modern and elegantly decorated, this beautiful family apartment has an excellent location in the heart of one of Madrid’s most historic neighbourhoods. The surrounding area is known as the Barrio de Las Letrasdue to the district’s long cultural and literary history – writer Quevedo actually completed many of his masterpieces in this very street. The barrio is a mix of peaceful lanes and more lively pedestrianized streets that are lined with restaurants, cafes and independent boutiques and is the perfect place to indulge in an evening stroll with both residents and other visitors alike. The apartment is ideally situated for guests to enjoy many of Madrid’s top sights and attractions, including the “Big Three” art museums found on the nearby Paseo del Prado, the buzzing Plaza de Santa Ana, and the Puerta del Sol, the very heart and soul of the city. The historical nature of the Barrio de Las Letras makes it one of the best places in Madrid to enjoy an evening tapeoin establishments frequented by writers and artists both past and present. With its luxurious décor and spacious rooms, the apartment itself offers an elegant home in the heart of the city. The highlight of the property is its large open-plan living area, which moves seamlessly from sitting room to dining room and finally onto a modern, fully-equipped kitchen. The two sitting areas are filled with light throughout the day thanks to the exterior-facing balconette windows, and the space has been beautifully decorated in pastel colours and neutral tones. The adjacent kitchen and dining room are contemporary in both style and layout, giving guests a unique dining experience. Each of the three bedrooms has been decorated in keeping with the rest of the property, and a fourth smaller room with daybed is ideal for guests or children. The master bedroom boasts a fantastic en-suite bathroom that includes a double sink, separate bath and walk-in shower, and private sauna. With its fabulous location and luxurious interior, this is a very special property in one of Madrid’s most atmospheric neighbourhoods. Please note that whilst the apartment has an elevator, it is very small in size, and must be taken into consideration.

We were thrilled with the service we received from Spain Select, it was excellent... very friendly and professional service. All the people we interacted with from the initial emails through to meeting us on arrival were very courteous and spoke very good english.
The apartment was exactly what we had expected from the photos and was extremely clean. The location was good, very close to all the sites and galleries we wanted to visit.
I would highly recommend both Spain Select and this apartment.
