First time I have ever stayed in a castle. It was so cool and so much fun. Our room was beautiful. The actual room was more remenisint of older days with a large barred window, canopy bed, and stone walls. The bathroom is much more...More
We were very late arriving at Alarcon having come off the ferry at Santander and being enroute to the South of Spain. Nearly 10pm we got within 2 miles of the place only to come upon a closed road which our Sat Nav had not...More
Me and my wife were both very impressed with this castle! It was very romantic and clean. Service was great, everyone is friendly. The village, Alarcon, is a very nice village, clean, small, and very very quiet. As you drive up the road to get...More

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!
