      Hi Linda,

      I sent you an email weeks ago. How are you doing now ? did you find an apartment ?
      It always has been a pleasure helping CEPSA professionals move here.

    Hey Pierre, good post. Explains each area quickly and easily so that people can research them without having to read a load of stuff first. Personally my favourite areas to live and stay are Chamberi and La latina. Where would you pick if you had to?

      Hi Sean,

      Well, I have had to choose since I live here !
      I live in the Rastro neighborhood, between La Latina and Lavapies. The heart of “castizo” Madrid where all the traditional fiestas happen (La Paloma, San Cayetano…) and the largest flee market in Europe. Multicultural, gritty, non-gentrified: it’s for Madrid lovers who love diversity.
