Chinchón is one of the best-preserved villages in the region of Madrid, right in the heart of old Castilla. Just 50 metres from Chinchón’s famous Plaza Mayor you will find The Palacete de La Marquesa de la Corona de Cusano — we know it more simply as Casa de la Marquesa. This historic building has recently been restored to bring it in line with what guests have come to expect from a modern and well-equipped hotel.
