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 ..... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;) ;) ;) ;)
Olga è stata molto gentile con noi e molto alla mano !! L'appartamento non è il massimo ma per passare qualche giorno a Barcellona è ok!! Il quartiere è bellissimo ... In "Plaza del sol" ci sono molti giovani e tanti pub per passare la serata !!
Nous avons adoré notre séjour chez Olga, elle est très accueillante et gentille.
Le quartier est super, animé, beaucoup de cafés, restos et magasins.
Nous n'avons qu'une envie : revenir !
Olga was very friendly and accommodating. Although there was no heating in the room, she gave us plenty of blankets and also towels. During our stay, she had a few friends over to the flat but we were not disturbed. She also frequently asked how we were doing, when bumping into each other inside the flat. She has a very cute and curious cat Minerva, which is a nice addition to the stay.
Wonderful appartment with nice people living in :) In February it was actually very cold, but we were provided with warm spreads so it was fine, also it was a little bit noisy because the second room door goes directly to the kitchen
A casa não esta tão bonita e conservada como nas fotos. O quarto não tem janelas, o colchão é desconfortável e o travesseiro é o pior possível. A localização é maravilhosa mas não recomendo.

I’m an openminded woman and I love to meet new people. I live with my son Jan, and with a little kitten call Minerva.
We like to welcome people in our flat because this provides us something new and different.
I have many interests, such as yoga, electronic music, going to the theatre, healthy food, reading, politics and many other activities like going out at night, watching concerts, traveling and discovering new cultures.
I dedicate myself to E-commerce of antiques and old books, too. My son Jan is a very loving and happy boy.
We’ll do our best to make your stay as comfortable as posible!
Soy una mujer muy abierta de mente, me gusta compartir y conocer a gente nueva. Vivo con mi hijo Jan de 13 años, y con nuestra gatita Minerva.
Nos gusta recibir a gente en casa porque esto siempre nos aporta algo nuevo y diferente.
Mis intereses son muy diversos, me gusta el Kundalini yoga, la música electrónica, el teatro, la alimentación sana, la lectura, la política, y otras muchas actividades... como salir de copas, ir a conciertos, viajar y conocer otras culturas, etc.
Me dedico entre otras cosas al comercio electrónico de libros antiguos y de colección.
Y a mi hijo Jan le encantan los bebes y niños pequeños y la gente en general.
No somos perfectos, pero si personas muy cordiales :-)
