About our home

Our house is located in a gated community with 24 Town Houses with common areas including lawn, 2 fenced swimming pools (adults and kids), paddle court (similar to tennis, very popular in Spain), a small soccer field and a playground.

Our house has 4000 sq feet comprised of four 1000 sq ft levels; On the first or main level we have the kitchen, a small bathroom and 400 sq ft living and dining room with access to a small private patio/terraza with 2 couches and a wooden dining table for up to 8 people. Dining "al fresco" on the patio any time is a marvelous experience. From that patio, you have a gated access to the common areas described above.

On the second level is the master bedroom with a king size bed, a big bathroom suite (with a shower and a jacuzzi), two walk in closets and small office room. The second level also has two bedrooms with three and two twin beds and one big bathroom. The third level has an office, a solarium, a bedroom with a queen size bed, a bathroom and a 300 sq ft terraza.

The basement or lower level has a nanny's bedroom with a small bathroom, laundry room with washing and drying machine, kids playing room with a PS3 Sony Playstation and a locked storage room. We have three adult and three kids bicycles, roller skates and skateboards that you can use if you wish. The garage accommodates 3 cars and has direct access to the lower level of the house.

The house also has a private elevator that provides access all levels.

Our neighbourhood: We live in Aravaca, a quiet and very nice upscale residential neighborhood 10 minutes by car from downtown Madrid. While officially part of the city of Madrid, Aravaca has the style of a small town, with many shops, restaurants, sports courts, biking paths and parks. Two or three big malls and two supermarkets are walking/biking distance from our house, while movie theaters are just 15 minutes away.

Aravaca is 40 minutes drive away from the mountains north of Madrid with lots of hiking trails and family-friendly sites. Popular attractions include the ancient palaces of the Royal Family in El Escorial, La Granja, Aranjuez, etc.

Madrid has an excellent, clean, cheap and safe public transportation system (railway, bus, taxi and metro) that conveniently connects Aravaca to the entire metropolitan area of Madrid. The easier and cheaper way to visit Madrid is driving (less than 5 minutes away) to Aravaca's train station (parking is easy and free) and then take a train (actually, is more like the metro) to downtown Madrid (20 minutes or so).

We recommend you to use the car for short trips to beautiful surrounding places such as Segovia, Toledo, El Escorial, Avila, etc. You may want to consider driving or using the high speed train network to go to distant places (for Spain's standards: more than 150 miles) such as Barcelona, Sevilla, Córdoba, Granada, Valencia, San Sebastián, etc.

Carolina also does gymnastics twice a week. They are very nice and polite...and good students!

  3. We want to show our three kids how wonderful our experience in the USA was. We will be travelling with Leticia's sister (Charo) and nephew (Jose, 14 years old). If you are interested, we can continue this info over email.
