Located in the little town of Alarcon on a hill overlooking the surrounding Jucar river and reservoir, this sought-after castle-converted-Parador is usually booked months in advance.

Dear Mrs. Sarah T,

An exceptional witness to the Reconquest, this 8th. castle, perfectly preserved, retains the aura of Arabic influence, with inimitable bedrooms which recreate the most romantic legends. It rises up on a promontory which presides over a fertile bend of the river Júcar. Military motifs from that period dominate the living rooms, impregnated with stone and Castilian wood.

Alarcon is quite remote. Easiest way would be to hire a car in Madrid. You could train to one of the bigger nearby towns (say Cuenca), but then you'd still need to take a taxi to Alarcon, which would be expensive I would think. And then leaving would be a challenge as you'd need to ring a taxi to come and get you.
It's probably only a 2 hour drive from Madrid - the roads are good and there's lots to see along the way if you're not in a rush.
Enjoy your trip!
