Lovely villa and beautiful views and surroundings. A perfect base while visiting Barcelona. Very easy to go by subway to the city; only 3 minutes walk to the station (Les Planes) and in 15 minutes by train you are in the middle of the city. Christina is very nice and helpful.
We would love to come back some day!
This is a great base for exploring Barcelona and Catalunya. In a leafy suburb, but a 20 minute subway ride from the city center. Ideal for a family with kids who have space to run around in the garden. Beatriz is a wonderful host who goes out of her way to make you feel welcome (for it included making a doctor appointment for my daughter and helping to set up a business meeting in Barcelona. Recommended!
the villa is the perfect place to stay while visiting Barcelona. Away from the busy city but only a 15 minute ride on metro. Very comfortable and spacious. We enjoyed the patios and terrace and of course the beautiful views. It is a great place to relax after spending the day (website hidden) keep in mind there are quite a few steps up to the villa but it is well worth the trip. We are 4 retired folks and we managed just fine. Our host Beatriz was very helpful in arranging taxis to pick us up from airport and also to take us to cruise ship after our stay.They were very prompt and reasonable.
We are a family of six scattered all over the world. We decided to meet for a week in Barcelona. This house was perfect for us.
The house is located in a beautiful area just outside of Barcelona. We loved the small village and coming back to a quite place.
The house is fully equipped, the back yard is lovely and we would recommend this place for families or groups of friends that wants to enjoy both worlds, the city of Barcelona 15 minutes away by train and the calm atmosphere of a local village. This was a great experience, we hope to come back in the future.
Our trip didn't start very well as there was some unfortunate misunderstandings with the host regarding what having extra people at the house would cost; however, eventually these were resolved successfully with the help of Airbnb.
It was nice staying at a regular home and the trains to Barcelona were frequent and didn't take long. However, if you like to party please note the trains run until midnight only, except on Fridays and Saturdays when they run until 2am. I would stress though that it really isn't so different from a regular house, as in don't expect anything super fancy; it's a bit worn down in places and there is a strange basement floor under the two main floors that had broken windows and a bolted out metal door. There is a ping pong table outside which was fun.
You are pretty much in the countryside when you go to the house, which is quite amazing considering how close to the centre of Barcelona you are. There were wild boars around which one of my friends was very excited about; she kept hoping we'd see them and one day we did! We didn't find any shops or restaurants in Les Planes itself but nearby Sant Jugat (sp?) which is about three stops on the train is really nice, has lovely cafes and a grocery store.
Overall I'd say I'm happy with our stay, but considering the ample and reasonably-priced accommodation opportunities in Barcelona, I'd say only stay here if you the price is right.
Wow! What an absolutely incredible experience, staying in Les Planes at Beatriz's fantastic house.
The views from the front door, terraces, and bedrooms are simply stunning. Do yourself a healthy favor, and spend a Sunday afternoon exploring the hills of Les Planes. Walk towards the village's peak, befriend roaming dogs, and have a beer in the uppermost restaurant. From la casa, the sunrises and sunsets will absolutely bedazzle you with their calming and invigorating energies.
Twenty minutes away, by way of the FGC, ride down into the heart of Barcelona, and eat at every authentically Catalan and Spanish bar possible. Have a few Voll Damms, and be thrilled that in the quiet of the night, you can head back to Les Planes, open up a bottle of cava, and relax into Catalonia's charms.
I cannot speak highly enough of Beatriz's offering of this house to travelers. Balancing the countryside with the city bears all the ingredients of perfect living.
Un blanco gato may pop up at the doorstep. Be sure to pet him lovingly, and stare deeply into his blue and yellow eyes.
My family of 4 stayed here for a week in November. Cristina was so nice and helpful and speaks very good English! She even arranged a taxi for us and she also left her phone number in case we needed anything. The house has central heating, wifi internet, cable TV, a DVD player, and is just so clean and beautiful! The photos are just how it looks in real life. The train station is very close to walk to which makes getting into the city super easy. We loved the house and all it has to offer. There are beautiful views and the furniture is very nice (beds are super comfortable too!). I love how Cristina has decorated the house! It is a mix of old and modern. Very Chic!!! Plus, she left us soap, and some food and drinks, and there were guide books, maps, and lots of pillows and blankets which made our stay so easy and comfortable. This area seems rural and you have a garden (and roosters crowing in the morning) and yet you are just next to all the city has to offer! There are large grocery stores in Sant Cugat (just a couple of train stops away) and we brought some big Ikea bags with us so when we needed food and drinks, bringing it back was easy. Sant Cugat also has many shops and restaurants. Overall, we loved this place and our host! I would stay in this house again for sure!!!
Beatriz met us and made us feel at home answering our questions about the spacious house and how to travel to Barcelona. She has good reference material in the house.
The house was at first difficult to find by car and the narrrow roads in the hills are interesting. There are almost 60 stairs to climb to get to the main level of the house. So for those with lots of heavy luggage - you will get some exercise. Internet was grerat - mice sized rooms and 2 bathrooms.
We wish we had more time to spend there then our 3 short days.
Cristina's Villa is everything it is pictured to be and more. I stayed there with two friends and it was perfect. The house is beyond beautiful and if you want to have the authentic feel of staying in a Villa in Barcelona, this is it.
Cristina was a great host and helped us get to the house from the Airport without any trouble. You can take a taxi if you give them the address or you can take an easy bus to the central Plaza and then take the FGC metro train almost directly to the house. The train stop is very convenient to the house, about a 4 minute walk. With the train you can get to any place you want to go in Barcelona. The Placa Catalunya (the main plaza in town) is about a 15 minute train ride from the Villa.
The house itself is half the fun of staying in Barcelona. It is truly amazing and we spent hours on the upstairs balcony just enjoying the view. There are also a few nice restaurants within walking distance and Cristina is very helpful with anything you might need to know. The internet and tv worked well, but more often than not you'll make a drink and spend your time on the balcony.
The house is also perfect for entertaining with a fully equipped kitchen and several nice spots to sit outside and enjoy your company.
And did I mention the view?! It's AMAZING. I miss it already.
Staying at the Villa was an amazing experience! I was in Barcelona for some time and moved around to determine which area I really liked and to experience the city. This was definitely one of the best!
Christina was a fabulous host. Everything was ready for us and she was very accommodating.
The house is large and wonderful. The terraces are especially beautiful. There are so many terraces on all sides. Wonderful places to eat breakfast and dinner.
Though the house is outside the city, there is a train station about 3 minutes walking distance. The train to Plaza Catalunya comes every 7 minutes and takes only about 15 minutes to get into the city. It's really cool how you can live in a beautiful calm house and still get into the core of the city that easily. A very unique situation.
I would recommend any larger group of people to stay here! We cooked, played games, hung out on the terraces watching the shooting stars, and just had a fabulous time.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
