Quiet sunny loft with terrace near Madrid Rio

This flat is perfect for one or two people. It has a lovely terrace with a barbecue. It's is a great place to spend time working.... and even if it's raining, you can sit outside under the awning. The flat is on a quiet street near the Madrid Rio boardwalk that runs for kilometres along the Manzanares River. I have two old bikes available for those who like to cycle. I haven't used them in a while, but there's a bike shop down the street that could tune them up. If you like parks, the Casa de Campo, the biggest one in Madrid, has biking lanes, walking paths, kayaking and boating, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and a sports centre walking distance from the house. The flat is also close to Principe Pío, a transport hub with its commuter trains, metro, and shopping centre. There is even a train straight to the airport that stops there. The flat is surrounded by buses that go to different parts of town such as Plaza España, Plaza Mayor, Plaza Jacinto Benavente, and Opera in about 15 minutes and another bus that brings you to Atocha in about 20 mins. You can easily reach the Complutense, ICADE, San Pablo CEU and other universities directly on line 6. The neighbourhood is quiet and safe with lots of parks and terraces to sit outside and have a drink near the river. The flat is cozy with high cathedral ceilings and a staircase up to the bedroom area. The stairs are a little narrow, but it's easy to get used to them. There is a bathroom upstairs next to the bed that has a small bathtub and another one downstairs with a shower. The flat has lots of windows, so light pours in at all hours of the day, and the nice breeze from the Casa Campo is a blessing. There is a big Carrefour market nearby and two other supermarkets a few minutes from the house. It is a 7-minute walk to two different metro stations (Puerta del Angel and Alto de Extremadura) and on the corner, two-minutes from the front door, there is a bus that brings you to Opera. Opera is only minutes walking to Madrid's city centre, La Puerta del Sol. The flat definitely has charm. It is located in a small three-storey building with 6 other flats, which is why it isn't noisy, and for those who don't like climbing stairs, there's an elevator. Hope to meet you soon!

About Me
Born and raised in Montreal in a bilingual home, I moved to Spain 32 years ago to learn Spanish and teach. I have travelled extensively to over 55 countries during this time, mostly to the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe. I recently took a sabbatical from the Pontifical University of Madrid, better known as ICADE, and am currently residing between Madrid and Vancouver, where I am completing a degree in Hispanic Studies and teaching Spanish part-time at the University of British Columbia. Besides teaching, I'm a translator and consecutive interpreter. I speak French, English, and Spanish fluently and can communicate a little in German and Arabic.
