Here is my personal selection of the best vacation rentals in Madrid:

Traveling is much more than visiting a city. It’s enjoying every moment without rushing or schedules. Traveling is discovering every corner and soaking up the culture and magic of Madrid, city of a thousand cities.

Then, get your apartment, an start experiencing a home away from home, while enjoying a unique experience abroad with your family or friends.

Discover the benefits of a holiday apartment: explore at your own pace, set your timetable and eat when and where you want. There’s no need to rush back if you are busy shopping, utterly fascinated by an art exhibition or just sunbathing in the Retiro Park…

Booking this type of accommodation means you can shop for what you like, keep food fresh more easily and prepare something light, without fuss. Should you decide to eat out, the city has some excellent restaurants!

So feel like a local, at least for a few days, and choose from a budget pied-à-terre to sumptuous luxury apartment.

But with so many choices of vacation rentals in Madrid, how will you pick the best option?

No problem. I have done all the work for you and you can find it below.
