An elegant classical apartment, stripped down and decorated with whimsy

As if this apartment wasn’t architecturally striking enough — with its rows of tall French windows, high ceilings and wood flooring — it was recently made over in honor of one of the 20th century’s most famous artists. Pablo Picasso once lived in the neighborhood; in fact, if you look out one of the windows, you’ll see a mural tribute to him that fills the frame perfectly.

An apartment devoted to the great artist could take so many forms, but the owners of this space took their time to get it right. We love the bold use of color, the amusing Cubist bathroom backsplash, the “Joie de Vivre” inspired stained-glass window panels, the mix-and-match furnishings, and the large dove wall mural. All of which pay tribute to an artist who thought outside the box, and changed quite a few subjects into cubes.

This is a vacation home rental in Madrid for lovers of art, but it’s also for lovers of comfort. A Feng Shui expert was called in to refine the space, and careful attention has been paid to pleasing the senses. The result is a visual feast and a gourmet kitchen, cotton sheets and soft bath towels, relaxing shower gels, and the miracle of peace and quiet in the center of one of Europe’s liveliest cities.

Description

When Picasso was 16 years old, his father and uncle sent the young artist to the country’s foremost art college in Madrid — the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando. Soon after he enrolled, he dropped out, spending more time exploring the city’s other attractions like the Museo Nacional del Prado. Both art spaces still exist (and are well worth exploring), but Picasso himself is long gone. He moved to France and passed away in 1973. But this apartment in the Embajadores-Lavapiés district, where he once lived, captures the spirit of the artist in a playful yet elegant way.

The home is made up of a living room with three bedrooms. The main space, a long, white, airy room has couches for lounging, a table for dining, and (rather unexpectedly) leads into a blood red bar (with turquoise velvet and gold fittings) and a modern kitchen (also red).

Each bedroom is different. The Blue and Green room has two single beds that can be converted into a king (on request) with a private (Cubist) bathroom. The Yellow room has one queen and a private bathroom. The Chill-Out room is separated from the living room by a sliding glass door and curtain. It has a double bed with its own balcony overlooking the street. There’s an additional single daybed in the living room.

This vacation home rental in Madrid is a vividly artistic space that places comfort front and center. Perfect for a large family, or group of friends sharing.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Air conditioning, heating, wifi, washer and dryer, dishwasher, hairdryer, TV, wireless intercom, and toiletries.

AROUND

The flat is located in a very bohemian neighborhood full of artists. It’s a great location for getting to know a bustling and authentic side of Madrid. It’s also great for foodies, with its famous tapas bars in Cava Baja, Cava Alta and Plaza Mayor, and the market in San Miguel is a gastronomic experience not to be missed. The Puerta del Sol, Calle Mayor, Arenal, Carretas and Gran Vía shopping areas are all within five minutes’ walking distance. 

A highlight for any visitor is El Rastro, the most popular open-air flea market in Spain, with a vast array of antiquaries, art dealers, and other ephemera. It’s open every Sunday and on holidays, and lends the neighborhood an electric energy on Sunday mornings. 

LOCATION

BEST TIME TO VISIT: Madrid is worth visiting all year round.

    Silvia and Francia were amazing hosts! The communication was easy and they took care of all our needs. Great centralized location near amazing plazas with great food. It felt very clean and modern with touches of Picasso inside this apartment. Glad we stayed here during our visit.

  • Trond Marius, November 11, 2017

    Absolutely fantastic apartment! We loved the decor, all rooms and the light coming in from the large windows, and enjoyed every minute of our 10-day stay. The pictures don’t quite do justice to the actual apartment, everything is brand new and very well thought out. You can feel the good karma the second you enter the front door :) The location is also pretty much perfect for enjoying downtown Madrid, right next to the Tirso Molina metro. Short walking distance to most points of interest and a metro takes you anywhere. We’ll be back!
