We are a 5 people family. There are three teenagers here. We live in the countryside, on a plot of 2000m2. There's a dog and a cat. We live in Madrid´s mountains, 50 minutes far from the capital, near El Escorial, historic city of Segovia, Ávila, and not far from Toledo. The area is spectacular; walks, astonishing landscapes, tranquility. Given that we are Spanish, it means we are restless, driven, noisy ... "typical spanish" and very hospitable. We like healthy living, and participate in the social life of our community. /
