Housed in a beautiful, historic building dating back to the 17th century and sitting directly on Madrid’s famous Plaza Mayor, this stylish penthouse apartment is a treat for those looking for a sunny, central stay. Inside, elegant white interiors set a striking first impression in the open-plan living area, with pops of green in the houseplants and a glossy, modern finish to the furnishings. The bedroom is a chic retreat with a small balcony giving way to Plaza Mayor views, but for truly outstanding views, we recommend climbing the stairs to the private rooftop terrace. Equipped with loungers and Acapulco chairs, this sun trap is the ideal spot to catch some rays over your morning coffee or watch the sunset over the Plaza, a glass of Spanish wine in hand. When it comes to sightseeing, you need only walk out your front door to be standing within one of the city’s most iconic squares, or stroll three minutes to the San Miguel Market for delectable tapas. You’re also a ten-minute stroll from both Gran Vía and the Royal Palace of Madrid, while the world-renown Museo Nacional del Prado is just under twenty minutes on foot from your door.
