Our holidays were really lovely. Madrid is a great city with many parks and cafés and bars and a lot of culture, too. Although it was very hot in August, we could do everything we wanted, there are enough spots to cool down (musea, shopping centre, parks). The appartement is down town, just some steps away from the Metro and Atocha Station and you can walk to the Prado and the Retiro Parc and even to the Plaza Mayor. We loved to live in the middle of everything. Thanks you for this exchange, Sonja, Thomas, Benedikt and Matthias.
