                      Car: Recommended

                      Madison exudes New England charm. In summer, the uncrowded beaches, parks and variety of outdoor activities make this a popular family destination. The nearby hotel has free summer concerts and is particularly convenient for last-minute dining, as is the new Christy's of Madison, on the opposite corner. The town is lively throughout the year with the independently-owned bookstore, R.J. Julia hosting many author events and the in-town movie theatre offering more than a diet of the usual blockbusters.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1999

                      About the owner: I'm originally from England but feel very much at home in New England. My husband is Italian and feels equally at home here, especially as there is good pizza to be found locally. We have one son, Seth, who was born in the U.S.

                      Why the Owner Chose Madison:
                      More than a vacation rental, this is our treasured refuge. We bought this house when we were about to be transferred to South America - we couldn't bear the thought of not coming back to Madison. The town has so much to offer: small enough for people to say hello when you pass them on the street, large enough to offer everything you need in the way of shopping and entertainment. The easy train ride to New York or Boston was also a big plus for us.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We enjoy having breakfast on the veranda, sunset strolls to the wharf, listening to music on the lawn of the Madison Beach Hotel. We can bike into town and pick up bagels and the newspaper. If we feel energetic, we can cycle all the way down the beach road and come back through town. On summer evenings, we arrange to meet friends at the Surf Club for a picnic dinner - although we also love eating on our screened porch. In winter, we enjoy a cosy evening at Madison Art Cinema and a glass of wine in town, or we light the fire and have friends over.
