NATIONAL PARK MOUNTAINS 50 KMS. FROM MADRID DOWNTOWN
Our neighbourhood is a very calm and silent environment on the verge of the Sierra de Guadarrama National Park, some 2 kms. away from Los Molinos (3.000 inhabitants). It is a nice walk from our house but a car is advisable if you need to load with some shopping bags.            
The name of our neighbourhood, “El Balcón de la Peñota” (The Peñota’s Balcony) accounts for its position on the slopes of Mount La Peñota (ca. 2.000 m high). Behind it is the Valle de la Fuenfría, a mountainous area covered by pinetree forests which allows wonderful horseriding, jogging or simply walking excursions along signposted routes. You can enjoy a swim in a natural swimming pool there. In wintertime there is a ski station on the upper ramparts (Navacerrada).                 
In a half hour/one hour drive there is plenty of tourist attractions (Madrid, the royal palaces of El Escorial and La Granja, medieval towns as Segovia and Ávila), gorgeous traditional restaurants and all sorts of activities (from biking to canoing). Communications with downtown Madrid are varied and fast: frequent trains and buses, an easy access to the speedway. From there, the Spanish motorway network allows an average 4 hours drive to any seaside destination.
