Madrid is a touchstone for European travel—and with a comfortable vacation rental in the city, you’ll be well-equipped to explore fully. Whether you’re here for the tapas and wine or the spectacular sights (or a little bit of both), Madrid is the place to get a hefty dose of exquisite culture, food, and entertainment. Come explore the historic beauty of Madrid, and prepare to be enchanted.
This majestic city sits right in the heart of Spain, surrounded by mountains and peaceful countryside. From here, it’s about 280 miles to the Valencia region, one of the best destinations along the Mediterranean. The Andalusia area is a little over 300 miles to Madrid’s south, and encompasses another gorgeous stretch of seashore. If you’re looking for a destination that’s more feasible as a day trip, try the historic town of Segovia or Toledo, both within easy driving or transit distance from your Madrid apartment.
Travelers visit Madrid for a myriad of reasons: history, cuisine, entertainment, and beyond. The city’s soccer team, Real Madrid, is known worldwide for their impressive track record and boisterous crowds—try attending a game, if you’re up for some action and excitement! Museums like the Prado are a must-see for art and history enthusiasts, and the beautiful Retiro Park, in the heart of the city, has something for everyone. Head out to a flamenco tablao for a taste of true Spanish culture: you’ll get to witness traditional dances and enjoy local fare like ham and fried bread.
