Culture and history near Madrid holiday lettings

From the grand Plaza Mayor to the rambunctious bars of lively Chueca, the trodden cobbles of the Barrio de las Letras to the fizzing tapas joints of La Latina, Madrid is a place that plays to the soul.

There are museums that burst with masterworks – Goya, Velazquez, Picasso, you name it. There are parks like El Retiro, where Madrilenos boat and picnic. There are kitchens that churn out Iberian hams and huevos rotos under vaulted ceilings or in the shadow of great cathedrals. Madrid holiday rentals await…

Activities

What to do near Madrid holiday homes

There's not just one Madrid. There are 100s. That's just what happens in a city so vast, so cultured, so venerable. Take some time to wander the various barrios and you'll see the different faces. You'll spy out the ghosts of Cervantes and Quevedo in the shadows of the Barrio de las Letras. You'll find masterful Spanish cooks touting the secrets of tapas in Conde Duque and beyond. On the Gran Via, it's all about swish shopping and strutting your stuff, while Chueca thumps with electronica and life until the early hours. And that's just a taster.

Weather

Local weather during your stay in Madrid holiday homes

Madrid doesn't grind to a halt in the winter, like other capitals around the globe. If it's cold, the Madrilenos simply leave the parks and hit the tapas bars or go underground in the dives of happening Chueca. The museums also stay open, which means there's plenty to be said about a city break here between December and March. The warmer months, from mild May in spring, through scorching August in summer, to September in autumn, are when life goes al fresco – the cantinas spill onto the plazas and things really swing in the Spanish capital.

Natural features

A wild side awaits in Madrid

Those on foot can hit the Casa de Campo, which straddles the Manzanares River, with its zoo enclosures and fountain-spurting lakes. Those with a car could drive further out – out to the wide rivers and eagle-spotted skies of the Parque Regional del Curso Medio range, perhaps. Or out to where the boulders and carved peaks of the Cuenca Alta del Manzanares are washed by waterfalls and mountain streams.
