For those who do not be like cooking there is a service for home cooking, you can ask menus and prices! we can cook at your place and share good food and good conversation! Or speciality of course typical spanish dishes , a good example would be :
Serrano ham/ typical Spanish tortilla / spicy chorizo flambé with cider
Paella ( seafood and chicken / squid in black ink)
Strawberry tiramisù / Tradicional tiramisù and of course unlimited sangria!!!
Also I have arranged prices with a renting bike shop in Madrid, ask me if you want to do this, I could get a discount!
As a complementary culinary experience we offer the possibility of undertake a 2 hrs Cooking Course on Spanish Cuisine.
The Course would cost 25€ and would explain in details how to cook proper Spanish Paella and how to make Sangria. At the end of the 2hrs course the food would be served as part of the meal.
The course would take place during dinner time and weekend
Interaction with Guests
Normally I will be present at your arrival, unless I have to go away for job or personal reasons, I am from Granada and every month I have to go at least a weekend to Granada. I love hanging out with my guests if time permits me, so I always let you choose if you are willing or not to have my company and if you like have a little cultural tour , share a beer, wine or even a crazy dancing night.
Lavapies is a vibrant neighborhood with a lot going on both day and night, have seen a very multitude of dining options, hindu, Moroccan, African, and of typical bars and taverns all Spanish regions .. you can ask me about places for tapas, or well eat like gentlemen .. there are places for everyone.But Do not forget if you want to have the party at home I have a almost professional chef to go to your house and cook!
The landlord was ok, good communication and flexibility.
The 'barrio' is amazing, a lot of little bar and café
We stayed at the apartment for one night before our flight out of Madrid. The apartment was fine, very clean and conveniently located 10 minutes from the train station. Great recommendations about the Indian food nearby (nice change of pace after 2 weeks of tapas)! Beware there is no elevator, my boyfriend wasn't too happy about carrying my 50 lb suitcase up 5 flights of stairs.
Sergio es muy buen anfitrión, muy atento y educado. Tuve demora con mis vuelos por lo que llegue mas tarde de lo planeado y no tuvo inconvenientes en esperarme. Muy buena ubicación, cerca de casi todo lo importante para recorrer caminando. El lugar muy limpio, cómodo, espacioso y agradable.
El barrio si bien está cerca de todo, no es muy lindo...
El departamento se encuentra en un 4to sin escalera, por lo que si se tiene un equipaje grande, como en nuestro caso, es bastante trabajoso para subirlo.
Nos tocaron unos días calurosos y el aire acondicionado no llega bien a la planta alta.
Después el estado del apto en general y la atencion de Sergio, todo bien!
Sergio was a great host! He was easy to communicate with and we loved our stay in his apartment. Great location and perfectly sized. I would definitely recommend his apartment when visiting Madrid!
