Our travel experience will start in Madrid. We will explore the capital city of Spain with a private tour designed to fit our travelers’ interests and preferences.
During the following days we will discover some of the most fascinating towns and areas of southern Castile. Our first destination outside Madrid will be Chinchón, perfectly embodying the concept of beautiful and traditional Castilian village. Its picturesque Plaza Mayor ranks as one of the most attractive squares in the world. We will then move to Aranjuez, which has been one of the Royal Estates of the Crown of Spain for many centuries. In 2001 UNESCO listed the town’s Cultural landscape as a World Heritage site. We will visit there the magnificent Royal Palace and Gardens. Later, we will be served a typical Castilian meal at a local restaurant.
In the afternoon we will continue to Toledo, known as the Imperial City and the City of the Three Cultures. We will stay there overnight and the following day will start an in-depth town visit. The Christian, Jewish and Muslim communities, the so-called Three Cultures, lived here peacefully in the olden days and still convey a universal message inviting to perpetual coexistence. During our tour of Toledo we will also focus on El Greco, the famous Greek painter who lived and created art in this city for more than 30 years.
In the evening, we will drive to a hunting residence located in an impressive natural setting amid the rugged Montes de Toledo. We will relax for a few days in this recently restored villa, where we will enjoy all comforts and contact with pristine nature. We will not miss the wide range of available activities, such as wildlife watching, horse riding, walking and hiking, mountain biking, cycling, and treasure hunting for kids. The cosy and friendly atmosphere at the villa will make us feel at home. We will be surrounded by the vastness of nature, so far away from civilization and yet so close to it. What a unique and memorable way of ending our holidays!
