Amazing Chalet! It was everything it was supposed to be. Javier was great. He worked with us through some unfortunate circumstances and made sure to accommodate our special needs. Highly recommended. A real asset to the AirBnB community. If you are visiting San Lorenzo de El Escorial, this is the place to stay.

About the Host, Javier & Marian
Hola! We've lived in Madrid all our lives, so we know it like the back of our hands. We have three little kids, so we had to move out of this apartment a few years ago. But we want other people to enjoy it as much as we did, so we've decided to open it up now (as of September 2012) to airbnb travellers. Welcome to our cosy little duplex in the heart of Madrid! Hasta pronto!
