We stayed 3 days with Rafael and it was one of our best stays in a 2 week trip around Madrid.
We were met in the village so we had no problems finding the house. It is a lovely home, very attractively furnished and very relaxing.
Rafael was an excellent host, we wanted to talk and we discussed history, politics and all sorts of topics.
I had forgotten to let him know that I needed a gluten free diet but he was most concerned that I would get enough to eat and went out of his way to shop for me. He is a really good host, and made us a lovely dinner ( the best stew I've had). The house is very stylish but not in any way pretentious, and we returned early one afternoon and just lazed in the sun.
We visited El Escorial, Segovia and Vallee de Los Caidos form here.
We can highly recommend staying here.
