The house is a 45 minute drive north from Madrid city centre and about the same from Madrid airport. The village centre is a ten minute walk. Valladolid airport, which Ryanair has recently started to use, is a two hour drive.
The house is detached and stands in its own spacious garden, with a circular 5.5 metre pool in summer. The dining room can seat 12 people comfortably and large double doors lead straight into the garden. There are buses every 30-45 minutes into Madrid.
The villa can be used as a base for day trips to Segovia, el Escorial, La Granja, Pedraza, Sepulveda, Toledo, Aranjuez or Chinchon. The Warner Brothers Theme Park is about a one and a half hour drive. The ski resorts of Valdesqui and Navacerrada are less than one hour away by car. Salamanca, Avila and Cuenca are about two hours away. From the south-facing upstairs balcony there are views for up to 80 kilometres to the south and east. To the west and north lies the Guadarama mountain range and the Pedriza natural park
The property is 30 miles northeast of Madrid city centre which is easily reached by buses every half hour, or by train from the nearby town of Comenar Viejo, or by car, which takes about 30 minutes to the outskirts and about 45 minutes to the centre. It is situated on the south-facing slopes of the Guadarama mountain range and therefore gets a lot of direct sunshine. In the summer months its altitude (1200 metres above sea level) makes for very pleasant temperatures and it is used by Madrileņos as an escape from the city heat. With its own reservoir and mountain streams, water is not a problem and in Spring the colours of the wild flowers are impressive.
