    I guess you love Madrid as much as I do!

  4. I agree with you. Lavapies is a wonderful area, and a lot of people are beginning to discover its charm. There is a lot of diversity, trending restaurants, and personality. Also, it you do your apartment search well, there are a lot of great bargains for your buck (for rental and for purchase)!

    Madrid is full of excellent neighborhoods, some points one can consider here could be selecting your home in a great school district, a neighborhood with low crime, and most important would be paying attention to your personal preferences with a long term perspective while choosing the right neighborhood for you.

  8. 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.

    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?

  10. 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.
