San Lorenzo was a beautiful town and a great location. We were centrally located to be able to visit Madrid, Segovia, Avila, and Toledo, as well as San Lorenzo. It was fun to just walk around the city and El Escorial was great to visit. The apartment was roomy and comfortable. We did have some communication difficulties before our arrival and we thought we would have Wi-Fi, but we didn't, which made things a little difficult and costly because we were driving and my husband was looking up driving direction at night, which he couldn't do without internet. My phone was set up for international use, but cost us $10 a day to use. We did get refunded a portion by the owner because the place had been listed a having Wi-Fi. The listing has been updated now, but just be aware that there is no internet. There was no soap for the dishwasher and no way to stop the kitchen sink, so washing dishes was difficult. I also couldn't find a hair dryer and there was no outlet by a mirror, so I couldn't do my hair. None of these were huge things, but it did kind of make our stay a little more difficult. I would probably give the rental a 3 1/2 star rating if I could.
This house is even nicer than the photos. My kids absolutely loved the pool and trampoline, and the house has nice space for families. It is situated close to the highway so for us it was convenient for day trips in all different directions. We visited the cities of Segovia and Avila, and the natural areas of Navafria and Hoces del Rio Duraton - highly recommend them all! There is a grocery store and a couple of restaurants in the area where the house is, though not walking distance. Also, the grocery has fairly limited hours so you might want to shop at one of the larger stores in the city instead. The views from the deck are amazing! Also, the owner Manueal was extremely friendly and helpful and very easy to communicate with. We really enjoyed our stay in Spain.
