Public transportation is one of the greatest symbols of the evolution of Madrid. It will only take the student a few minutes to move around thanks to Madrid´s, being one of the most developed and cheapest subways in the world.
Le Cordon Bleu Madrid is located in Pozuelo de Alarcón, only 20 minutes away from the city center. The school is situated on the campus of the Francisco de Vitoria University (UFV), easily reachable by public transportation.
The UFV offers students coming from Madrid free buses with a long service schedule with routes from Aluche, Moncloa and the Student Residences and Plaza Castilla from October until June.
In just a few minutes, the student can leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind and discover the areas around Madrid. Because the bus and train network connects the city center with the surroundings of Madrid. And by High Speed train (AVE) the student can visit the most important cities of Spain in the wink of an eye.
By traveling through the many regions of Spain and its surrounding countries the students can immerse themselves in culture. From the snow-capped mountains in the north, to a dramatic coastline in the west and the majestic shores on the Mediterranean. Spain has something for everyone. With its diverse history one can travel back in time with Celtic, Roman, Moorish, Jewish and Islamic architecture all over the country. While experiencing the history enjoy the amazing cuisine.
From Madrid’s’ airport Barajas, the student can travel al around Europe. In approximately 2 hours you can reach any principal city in Europe; Paris, London, Rome, Lisbon or Amsterdam.
We recommend several alternatives for our students to choose from so they can find whatever suits them best:
If a student wishes to live as close as possible to the School, we recommend the surrounding areas of Pozuelo de Alarcón, Majadahonda, Aravaca and Las Rozas.
These are the nearest districts to Le Cordon Bleu Madrid. The student will save time, since he/she will get to the school quickly and will live in a more relaxing environment than the City center. The prices in this area are not that high especially taking into account that it is one of the best areas in the Community of Madrid regarding entertainment and living quality.
Or the student can stay on the campus where you can find the Student Residence of the University.
