From your eight-bedroom apartment at Fuencarral 41, it’s a five-minute walk to Chueca metro. Use the area’s convenient transport links to reach IE University and the campuses of Ciudad Universitaria in approximately half an hour. When you’re not in class, many of the city’s best attractions are within easy walking distance. Discover the treasures of ancient civilisations at Museo Arqueológico Nacional, or give your credit card a workout on famous shopping street Gran Vía.
In between adventures, head home to your fully-furnished apartment. Stop for gelato at next door ice-cream parlour Bellamia Heladería, then dump your book bag in the closet and invite your friends over for a catch-up on the sofa. After they leave, select your notes from the bookshelf and settle down to your assignments at your spacious study desk. With all utilities included, keeping track of your budget is easy at Fuencarral 41, allowing you the peace of mind you need to focus on your work.
Later, throw your laundry into the apartment washing machine, then create something delicious for dinner in the shared kitchen. Sit down with your flatmates around the dining table, then step into the bathroom for a refreshing shower. If you don’t feel like cooking, hit the gourmet food stalls of local Mercado de San Ildefonso, before making your way to La Terraza de Oscar’s rooftop bar. Spend a balmy summer evening sipping cocktails in the pool while admiring spectacular views of the city.
