We take payment via credit or debit card, bank transfer or cheques payable to Snowhill Properties.

We understand that you might not be able to make a decision right away so we are able to provisionally hold your chosen property for a period of time at our discretion (no more than 48 hours).

As many as you like!

The hire rates are based on 7 nights and shorter breaks of 4 nights or fewer but will always do our best to accommodate your preferred dates. The decision is at the discretion of the owner so please phone and ask.

There are 2 metro stops close by: Alonso Martinez and Chueca and there is a train stop, Recoletos.

You can arrive at the apartment any time from 4pm to 10pm on your arrival day unless otherwise arranged.

We ask you vacate the apartment by 10am on your departure day in order for the cleaners to prepare the property for the next guest. Failure to do so may incur costs that you may have to pay for.

We require a minimum deposit of 30% when you make your booking. The remaining 70% is due 6 weeks before your arrival date.

If you book less then 6 weeks before your arrival date then the full amount is due at the time of making the booking.

Should you need to cancel a reservation for whatever reason, this must be requested in writing to or via the contact page of the website.

We will attempt to re-let the apartment on receipt of cancellation and if we are successful we will refund you for monies paid minus an administrative fee for £50.00 per booking.

If we are only able to re-let the apartment for part of the period booked we will refund an amount equal to the monies paid less (1) the rental for the period that is not re-let and (2) an administrative charge of £50.00 per booking.

If we are unable to re-let the apartment for the period booked you remain liable for the final payment on the due date as indicated in the Payment section.

If we are successful in re-letting the property for the whole or part of the period of the booking after the guest has made the final payment, the guest will be reimbursed in accordance with the refund conditions above.

We advise that you take out separate holiday cancellation insurance.

Museums: Prado, the Reina Sofia and the Museo Thyssen are all within a 20 minute walk of the apartment. There are countless more museums and galleries and worth looking up online to find ones that would be of interest to you.

Shopping: Calle Serrano, where all the luxury brands are to be found, is a 10 minute walk and Fuencarral, the main shopping street, is around the corner.
