About our home

The apartment is located in the very heart of Madrid. Pre-war building, from 1876. High ceilings. With a surface of 240m2 (2500 sf) it is unusually large for downtown Madrid. Building and apartment are fully renovated. The apartment occupies the whole 2nd floor (3rd floor for Americans) and has a private elevator. Historic neighourhood now becoming trendy with lots of cool restaurants, bars, shops and theatres. Right across the street you have San Antonio de los Alemanes, a beautiful baroque church by Juan de Herrero, the architect of El Escorial.

Despite its central location, the apartment is quiet. Glamourous but unpretentious.

The next deli supermarket is right across the street. Theatres, the Opera and the Prado Museum are all walking distance.

Gran Vía is just 4 minutes walking. The magnificent main artery of Madrid is known as the Spanish Broadway, offers amazing architecture and a big city feel found in few other places in Europe. Parallels with the Big Apple can be seen in the short version of art deco skyscrapers, historic theatres and the endless stream of taxis.
Five minutes walking, and you find a totally different vibe in a neighbourhood hot with hipsters. Tree-lined Calle Fuencarral is the trendiest shopping street in town for the fashionistas. Don’t miss Mercado de San Ildefonso – a indoor food market that spans three floors.

12 minutes walking and you reach the Paseo del Prado, one of Madrid’s best-known boulevards. It shares the same name as the world-famous art museum. Other than the prominent Prado, the boulevard stretches past Museo Thyssen Bornemisza, almost reaching Museo Reina Sofia in an area known as “The Golden Triangle of Art”.

More about us

  1. As a conference interpreter I sleep in hotels all the time. There is nothing to be said against that, but staying at a hotel or eating out reminds me of work.

    I live between Madrid and a place in the country near Zurich. The urbanites among you will love my place in Madrid. Large families will have a great time in my home in the country near Zurich.

  2. Real estate is one of my hobbies. This may sound silly but I enjoy nothing more than taking care of houses and gardens and people. I find that very meaningful. Love culture as in traveling, art, gardening, cooking, painting and music.

  3. Looking for all these unimportant but meaningful experiences you remember for the rest of your life.

    Usually travel with one friend and sometimes with another couple.

    My life motto is 'live and let live´.
