Our duplex is super charming and bright: it has southwest location, which is the best for getting a lot of natural light, as well as breezy enough in the Summer. Downstairs is the living space: a well-stocked kitchen (we love cooking) with dining nook, the kid's bedroom, our master bedroom with ensuite, double-sink restroom and the great living room, with a full dining table and very comfortable couch and widescreen tv. We have a great terrace, around 20 sq. meters, with plenty of plants. Upstairs there's the working area, and also a chill-out space that we use for reading or relaxing. The pictures do not make justice to the charm of the pace (we took them before hopping on the plane), but the apartment really is beautiful, bright and has very good vibes. Also, there are a lot of green spaces and a swimming pool within our complex, as well as a 24/h doorman.
It is located in the neighborhood of Imperial, in the center of Madrid. Imperial is a 5-minute walk from both the city center (La latina Market, Lavapiés, the Rastro, Sol) and the relaxing Manzanares river. It is truly the gem of Madrid's central neighborhoods because it's a walking distance from everything but it is still super calm. There are plenty of restaurants around, as well as public transportation options, from city-bikes to subway, train and bus lines. And plenty of parking!
