September 2003: During the period that we lived in Holland for 5 years we travelled extensively around Spain. The last large region of the country that we hadn't visited was the northern third above Madrid. We came upon the Monasterio in the Special Places travel book and were completely awestruck by the property and its location next to the park. Driving through the nearby countryside, one would never guess that such an oasis existed. Our only regret is that we only spent two nights. We ate both nights in the dining room and I had the best duck confit of my life! There aren't many places that one visits that they would return to. The MdP is an exception that I have already recommended to several people.
