The start of our trip was an hour or so drive to Cordoba to connect with the high speed AVE train to Madrid which whisked us there in under 2 hours in absolute comfort and even though we did travel by tourist class there was plenty of leg room – please note Virgin Rail & Ryanair.

Staying overnight near Madrid airport we came across Rest. Hmos. Romero nestling away on an industrial estate but within easy walking distance of our hotel.
