Well, bon voyage Carole! I will only make erratic appearances on this board prior to my departure next week. Enjoy, and don't forget to have a glass of Anis de Chinchon. Bye for now! cool

I'm planning a short stay in Chinchon in May 2008, and miss the "post mortem" reports that were promised by Carole. Is there anybody else who had actually stayed in town and can comment on lodging?

I stayed at The Condessa De Chinchon for a couple of nights last July.The hotel was fine,if nothing special.Close to the Plaza Mayor,and opposite the Parador,fairly cheap and with a good parking garage.I found Chinchon very disappointing.The Plaza Mayor was being renovated and the whole placw was a building site.No romantic meals on the balconies overlooking the plaza

Well I would ay that if you looked "through" the buliding site , Chinchon is really quite nice . I went last summer and I too was disappointed to find the whole of the Plaza Mayor wrapped in Scaffolding so I'm planning a trip back soon . Despite the disappointment I had a walk around and had some wonderful sangria with friends on a warm night in a beautiful courtyard watching all the swallows and swifts darting around .
Does anyone here know if the building work has finished yet or when it's due to be completed ? Maybe i'll wait a while anyway until Madrid's ( much needed ) rain has finished .
just one note , Chinchon is not serviced by a railway so a bus journey or car is the only option . Steve .
