Another possibility would be to look for a holiday villa in the outskirts of Madrid or in some of the surrounding towns, where the choices are plentiful. Holiday villas are available with many different facilities, like swimming pool and air conditioning in different sizes and price levels to match most budgets.
Aranjuez is a beautiful Royal City at the South of Madrid, not far from the capital. It lies in the picturesque area between the rivers Tagus and Jarama and in a unique way combines the spirit of the past and the present day. Especially important for the development of the city was the reign of Felipe II (16th Century), who awarded Aranjuez the title of a Royal Site. It is also famous because of its wonderful gardens and it was the first place where strawberries where cultivated; Isabel II built in 1851 "The Strawberry train" from Madrid to Aranjuez.(its tickets include a travel across the main monuments of the Royal Place).
Alcalá de Henares, or Alcalá on the Henares, is another picturesque Spanish city around 30 kilometers away from Madrid. Famous for its culture and historical landmarks, the city is a wonderful location for renting a holiday villa only a short distance away from the Spanish capital. Alcalá lies in an austere area, surrounded by hills on the North and the East. In its medieval center, along meandering cobbled streets, you'll find many historic buildings.
Chinchón is a lovely municipality, just 45 kilometers away from Madrid. Its most impressive landmark is the Medieval square with an original shape, formed of houses of two and three floors with running balconies. Another characteristic monument of the city is the church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción (1534-1626). The original church was destroyed by the Napoleonic troops in 1808, but later it was rebuilt combining the Gothic style, Plateresque, Renaissance and Baroque elements. Here also the marvelous work of Goya, 'La Asunción de la Virgen' can be seen.
If you want to rent a holiday villa a little further away from Madrid (54 km), Segovia could be a good choice. The city has the highest concentration of Romanesque churches in all of Europe, pedestrian streets where no cars are allowed, the aroma of roast pig around every corner - all surrounded by the city's medieval wall which itself is bordered by two rivers and an extensive green-belt park with miles of walks. On the north-west extreme of the wall is the famous Alcazar castle where Queen Isabel promised Columbus the financial backing he needed to discover America. The tallest building in Segovia is still the 16th-century Cathedral, a prominent landmark as one approach from any direction.
