Those who haven't been skiing yet may want to find this genuine mountain atmosphere only 40km away from Madrid, at the village of Navacerrada. True to its name, the restaurant La Raclet offers the real deal: cheese, pickles and charcuterie. And if you're rather fond of fondue, you may order the Bourguignonne (meat fondue) or the Savoyarde (cheese). As you will be in heavy need of digestion thereafter, we suggest a walk through Cuenca Alta de Manzanares along the Barranca or an adventure at Pino a Pino park where you swing from tree to tree on well-secured cables strung high up between trees (find both options across the M607 road, opposite the village).
