Madrid holiday apartments mean art, tapas, and football
Madrid, Spain's lively capital, encapsulates Spanish culture.

Located at the very centre of the Spanish peninsula, Madrid is also famous for its Spanish Golden Age architecture, museums, bright blue sky, and football culture.
Sights, delicious food, trendy bars, and the best holiday apartments in Madrid
Madrid is truly charming, and staying at a holiday apartment there gives you an insider's view. You'll often find holiday homes in areas where other accommodations may be unavailable or are too expensive, and they can make travelling with children or pets much easier. On TUI Villas, you'll find various holiday homes throughout Madrid and Spain.
What to visit while staying at a Madrid holiday home
The massive Plaza Mayor square is many travellers’ first encounter with Madrid, and the Spanish Royal Palace, one of the most impressive in Europe, is also worth spending a day at. When it comes to green areas, Madrid far exceeds many travellers’ expectations: huge Parque del Retiro is perfect for picnics, while hilly Casa de Campo is suitable for hiking.
The city's impressive museums, such as El Prado and Reina Sofia, will surely mesmerise art enthusiasts, whereas football fans will be thrilled during guided tours of Real Madrid’s Bernabeu Stadium. Finally, while staying at a Madrid holiday home, don't forget to just stroll around your neighbourhood and let yourself be carried away by the spontaneity of this amazing city.
Tapas and stews: Madrid’s gastronomy
For a local food experience, head to one of Madrid's many bars and restaurants. A typical lunch can consist of an iconic fried calamari sandwich at a local tasca, a bar serving tapas and drinks. At night, tabernas – traditional restaurants – serve tasty and filling dishes such as cocido madrileño, a stew made with cured meats, vegetables, and chickpeas.
For a lighter meal, head to the Mercado de San Miguel – famous for its iron architecture – and pick up some famous villaconejos melon, tasty Aranjuez asparagus, and, of course, jamon and manchego cheese. Bring the food back to your Madrid holiday home and cook your own meal, or head to one of the many parks for a picnic.
Holiday apartments in Madrid for children and pets
On TUI Villas, you'll have many holiday homes to choose from, and most are well equipped for children and accept pets. If you're into classic architecture, pick a historical apartment in one of the central neighbourhoods of Salamanca, Chamberí, or La Latina. Travellers with children or pets might find it easier to stay in the green suburbs or close to one of Madrid’s parks, such as the 125-hectare Parque del Retiro. Apartments in this area close to the city centre are generally modern, and most buildings have an elevator. Meanwhile, 30 minutes from the city centre, the small town of Pozuelo de Alarcón offers garden villas and modern condos with a swimming pool.
Beyond Madrid: Ávila, Toledo and Segovia
Madrid borders two of Spain’s most iconic regions: Castilla-La Mancha and Castilla and León. Olive fields, gastronomy, and the medieval cities of Ávila, Toledo, and Segovia are among the main attractions around Madrid.
Ávila, a fortified city, features some of the world's finest and Romanesque and Gothic architecture, while Segovia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, boasts a remarkable Roman aqueduct and one of the last Gothic churches built in Europe. Toledo, also a UNESCO Site, is known as Spain's 'museum city' due to its wealth of monuments. All three cities are about one hour by car or train from Madrid.
How to get to your holiday apartment in Madrid
British Airways and many low-cost airlines travel between London and Madrid several times daily. British Airways and Iberia also connect Madrid with Bristol and Birmingham. From Madrid’s airport, the light rail connects you to the city's main train stations, where you can use the metro to get to your Madrid holiday home.
You can also take the high-speed train for about 30 minutes to Toledo or Segovia, whereas a train trip to Ávila can take 1-1.5 hours. If you're planning on visiting small villages and olive fields, you may be better off renting a car.
The best time to visit Madrid
The best time to visit Madrid really depends on your preferences, as the Spanish capital’s climate is pleasant year round. Summer, when temperatures are high and the city gets quiet, might be the best time to rent a holiday villa or a flat in a condo with a garden and swimming pool. Winter, on the other hand, can be quite cold, with occasional frost and snow. Nevertheless, winters Madrid holiday apartments promise warm evenings in local tabernas. Summer and autumn are mild and generally sunny, and great times to do some sightseeing and walk in the city’s parks.
Madrid for football fans
Football fans won’t be disappointed by Madrid. After all, the city is home to four football teams, two of which made history. Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabéu Stadium and Atlético de Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitano Stadium are both open for visitors, with guided tours available. To learn about Spanish football history, visit the Spanish National Team's Football Museum in the neighbouring town of Las Rozas, and on match day, sit in a cheerful sports bar and join the crowds going wild. If you're planning on attending a football game at Bernabéu, consider TUI Villas holiday apartments in the nearby Chamartín district.
