The Experience

This hilltop finca has cooling breezes in summer, sweeping views towards the Sierra Guadarrama and a garden designed by one of Spain’s top landscape architects. The house itself is exquisitely furnished but as it’s the weekend home of Marta and her family it feels relaxed and homely too.

A generous breakfast is whipped up by the on-site caretakers, who can cook and clean too if you want. All ages will be happy here and there’s plenty of room to spread out: two sitting rooms with open fires, a large shaded terrace, a games room and garden annexe with a home cinema. The garden has a big swimming pool, tennis courts and a playground.

There are good places to eat in Torrelodones, a three-minute drive away, including Michelin-starred restaurant, La Casita. Segovia’s iconic Roman aqueduct and the 18th-century royal palace of La Granja, with gardens in the style of Versailles, are half an hour away, as is the magnificent Monasterio del Escorial, the historical residence of the King of Spain.

If I ever was to hold a family reunion this would be the place. Ideally located, just 35 minutes from Barajas Airport, all motorway, just 20 minutes from the Capital and nestling in the foothills of the National Park of Guadarrama. Also given the homely feel of this attractive house that has everything, including a large and impressive garden, I would not want to move from the Finca!
