Camino Frances 2001 and 2006, Via de la plata 2007,2010,2017,2019. CdM 3 times Ruta de la lana (2021
Started camino de Madrid 29/6 and finished 13/7 2022. Fantastic 13 days . Started out 5-6 in the morning with nice temperature, 15-18 Celcius. Stopped walking around one oclock because of the heat. Sat in the shade with vine when the real heat arrived, 30+. Open albergues from Alcazaren and forward to Sahagun. Before that no problem finding somewhere to sleep. Manzanares el real has a very nice hostal/albergue and casa Rurales in other places. Casa Paca in Coca was a fantastic place. 25 Euros/person with breakfast. Washingmachine for free.
Met 4 other peregrinos in 13 days. This year I walked with my son and we left Madrid yesterday and they had 41 degrees in the afternoon. Picture are coming from this amazing trip, my fourth Camino de Madrid.

Hi Roger thanks for posting about the Madrid. I am going in September, hopefully, but according to Gronze the Albergue at Santa Maria de Real de Nieva is closed? Did you stay in this town?
Also I enquired in Coca about Casa la Paca but there is no availability and the Albergue there is also closed?
Any chance you could post the stops you had and the accommodation? I think because of no affordable accommodation in Coca, I might need to change my plan. But perhaps others have a;ternative suggestions?
thanks in advance

We staid at Hostal Avanto 1.5 km outside town. You dont have to walk into town just take a road in Pinilla de Ambros to the hostal. Nice place with food and fantastic owners. Made us breakfast in the morning.
The owner of Casa Paca told us that he cant be on Booking because he of chanses of doublebooking. When we arrived he had 5 rooms and at night we were 3 people there. In Booking it looked as it it was full.
Good luck, Roger

Thanks. No spoke direct to Casa de Paca and she definitely doesn't have availability for my date. Think the only option is to walk a further 6.7k to Villeguillo where there looks to be an Albergue?
Did you find any other Albergues closed on the Madrid?

How wonderful for you! I started from Madrid on 1 June and had a superb time. I loved the albergues in Alcazaren, Villeguillo and Penaflor- such great stops. Some of the farm stretches did go on a bit ! It’s such a great option for those that don’t want a party Camino and prefer quiet walking and some alone time. Glad you had a great time 💪

Thanks Skevin for confirming there is an albergue at Villeguillo as there is no available accommodation in Coca :)

Yep - key at the bar. The lady there is really lovely. Please make sure you have enough food I can’t recall any supermarkets for about a week from there.

yes, so you can get a meal at the bar?
Yes, light meals _ but def not late. I think they had meals at 7pm if you asked them at check in a bit earlier - was the kind of place that had such few people . I think I saw 2 others entire time I was there. The lady was super nice I remember her well. Albergue had a small kitchen and microwave plus a lot of beds ( I was only one as usual on the Camino de Madrid !). Are you walking now ?
