In an unspoilt area often referred to as Madrid’s lake district you will find Finca el Destino, a lakeside country guesthouse with three delightful studios. This is a slice of rural heaven just an hour from the capital.
The guesthouse is located near the little village of El Berrueco in an area known as the Sierra Norte de Madrid. The city is an easy drive away but here, surrounded by lakes, mountains and wildlife, you couldn’t feel further away from civilisation. The house itself comprises three apartments, each totally independent, and it also boasts a gorgeous swimming pool and an outside kitchen for when you want to be more social. If you’re looking for a holiday destination that combines city culture with countryside R&R then Finca el Destino could be just the place.
El Berrueco, a tiny hamlet with a population of less than 250, is one of many traditional villages that dot the edges of the El Atazar lake. The village itself is charming, with a church, a central square and a town hall, and the surrounding area has a good selection of restaurants ranging from ‘cheap and cheerful’ to fine dining. The countryside round here is a hiker’s paradise (the Genaro trail passes right by the Finca) and pursuits like mountain biking, fishing, horse riding and water sports are also popular. Or you could visit local historic sites like the El Paular Monastery near Rascafria, the breathtaking walled town of Buitrago and the abandoned village of Patones de Arriba. And of course the bright lights of Madrid are just an hour away.
Madrid’s international airport is an hour away and you are advised to hire a car from there.
