About this listing
Hola! Mi hijo Jan de 13 años, yo de 46, tenemos libre una habitación que tanto puede ser doble como individual (son dos camas juntas, que si no necesitáis se quedan en una). Tenemos un baño, la cocina, los salónes, balcón... todo lo podéis usar.
Hello! My 11-year old son Jan, my friend Francesca (28) and me (40) offer a free room in our flat which can be used by 1 or 2 people ( there are 2 beds which can be put together or separately (and we also can manage to put a third mattress). We have a bathroom, kitchen, 2 living-rooms, balcony…all welcome to use.
The flat: It’s a typical Art Nouveau building which is more than 100 years old and still adorable. The front and back side of the building face the street and the famous Plaza del Sol.
We enjoy almost always sunny days during the morning and also afternoons. The building is spacious and bright; it has 2 living-rooms, 4 bedrooms, 1 lumber room, kitchen (fully equipped) , bathroom, a gallery and 2 balconies.
The bathroom is small with a window opening onto the courtyard, typical for these kind of buildings. The gallery has a few windows through which the light comes in and brightens the room making it luminous. The ceiling of the building is high and the floor is made of antique ceramic.
We have a glass-ceramic-stove, an oven, a fridge, an iron, a sofa-bed, a TV, telephone , a PlayStation… the normal stuff of home
The offered room is about 14m big. It is equipped with 2 beds, wardrobe, bedside table, hangers, towels, bed-sheets. Though there’s no window, the room is luminous and ventilated.
We don’t own another bed in the same room, but we can manage to put a mattress inside or bring in the sofa-bed. However, this third person could well nestle with us.
The two living-rooms are each in one side of the flat (two sides) , this means that they’re divided and like this you can enjoy a private space to spend time in.
In this house you will find an open-minded atmosphere, clean and without stress;)
During your visit in Barcelona you’ll discover numerous activities here in Gràcia, our district, which is pretty cosmopolitan, amusing and culturally active. However, Francesca and I can recommend you places to go and things to do.
The neighborhood is pretty amusing as I said and calm at the same time; you cand find many shops, restaurants, bars and pubs.
We hope to meet you soon!
Olga, Jan y Franchesca.
The district of Gràcia:
The neighbourhood of Gràcia is just one stop up from the top of Passeig de Gràcia but it feels like a whole different world. Gràcia was an independent town until the late 19th century and even now the community is small and tight. The people are exceedingly proud of their roots, they don't say they come from Barcelona, they say Gràcia.
The area is popular with artists and a generally bohemian crowd, it also has a high ethnic population and the highest concentration of foreign restaurants in Barcelona. Plaça de Sol is the most renowned area of the neighbourhood, it's lined with terrace cafes and at night this is where the people convene to drink and be merry. However despite the trendy nature of Gràcia it is also a very traditional barrio with a large elderly population which makes for an amusing and odd mix - and very entertaining people-watching!
Las normas de la casa son muy simples :
No hay horario para entrar y salir del piso; eso si, respetando de los vecinos, ya sea tanto dentro como en las escaleras del piso,especialmente durante la noche. ;)
Mantener limpias y ordenadas las zonas comunes.
No hacer ruidos, y/o musica fuerte despues de las 23hs,
y lo mas importante, buen rollo, sentirse como en su casa, y disfrutar de una buena estancia en la hermosa ciudad de Barcelona ..... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;) ;) ;) ;)
