August 12, 2022

The offer of leisure, parks, schools and hospitals mark the quality of life of some districts of the capital that, year after year, increase their real estate value

Wanting and being able are verbs that do not always go together… at least when they are combined with the Madrid real estate market. All in all, it does not hurt to know how one of the most powerful economic segments of our country breathes and that affects the lives and the economy of hundreds of thousands of people. Thus, if you are looking for where to buy a home, you should know what the different areas of the city of Madrid offer. Depending on the needs and lifestyle of each one, we can approach the difficult task of selecting a living space among the best neighborhoods to live in Madrid .

Chamberí: tradition and modernity

The district takes its name from the French regiment that remained in this space during the Gallic occupation. It was called the Chambéry Regiment , after the city in eastern France, the capital of Savoy. Today everything has changed a lot and the neighborhood is among the best areas to live in Madrid. It has in its favor the proximity to the Salamanca district, but without the inconveniences of being an area with so much hustle and bustle and commerce. Although this, for some, can also be a point against. There is something for everyone.

It offers a great quality of life, because it has abundant services such as schools and shops, as well as many leisure activities , mainly in Malasaña and Chueca. Within its cultural offer, the presence of several museums (Sorolla, Geominero, Metro and Public Art) and theaters (La Abadía, Galileo and Canal) stand out. The only drawback is that, compared to other areas of Madrid, it has few green areas and sports facilities: Santander Park and the Canal de Isabel II sports facilities stand out among them.

Moncloa-Aravaca: intergenerational

The Moncloa-Aravaca area offers a great variety when choosing where to live . Here are the neighborhoods of Argüelles , the most urban; Ciudad Universitaria , ideal for students due to its proximity to the Complutense University campus, a young area in constant ferment; Puerta de Hierro , which is one of the most exclusive areas of Madrid; Aravaca , where the old town coexists with the new developments of flats, townhouses and chalets; El Plantío , with exclusive villa developments; and Valdemarín , where the most recent luxury housing offer is concentrated.

Chamartín: among the most valued

Located in the north of the city, Chamartín is one of the best areas to live within the city of Madrid and also one of the most sought after due to its proximity to business and corporate areas . In its favor, it is quieter than other good, fashionable neighborhoods in Madrid such as La Latina, and it also has the Chamartín train station that connects the capital with the rest of Spain.

Without a doubt, it is one of the select districts of Madrid, with quality homes and an average price that exceeds 6,000 euros/square meter in many cases . Among its cultural and leisure activities, the National Music Auditorium, the Museum of Natural Sciences and the Santiago Bernabéu stadium stand out. It is a business area of ​​contrasts in which large skyscrapers (the Four Towers and the KIOs in Plaza de Castilla) and elite residential neighborhoods such as El Viso coexist. Chamartín offers leisure, cultural and service opportunities as it is within the city and very well connected with the rest of the neighbourhoods. In addition, it is an area in expansion with the development in the coming years of Madrid Nuevo Norte.
