Visit the best of barcelona
We had a fantastic time at this property.
Myself, my wife, 3 year old son and my in laws all stayed for one week.
Its exactly as described, spacious and in a national park.
We hired a car but its 30 mins from airport - l am glad we had a car to drive to beaches and supermarket but it is a 3 min walk to Les Planes train station
We seen the wild pigs a few times and that was very nice!
I would say that the balconies and the garden have big drops onto areas below - we were constantly on guard with this and caused us no issues but l feel it is worth a mention. Almost everywhere on holiday has some balcony so its not that different.
The kitchen was clean, the house was perfect for us on arrival and we walked to a restaurant one night, used the weber charcoal bbq a few nights and ate in the city a few nights too
We loved Cristina's beautiful villa in Les Planes! It was spacious and homey for our family of five. The view from the villa was incredible! It was also very close to walk to the train station and only 15 minutes away from the city. This is truly the place in Barcelona to enjoy the best of both world! Cristina was a graceful lady and an incredible host who went out of her way to book taxi for us and also came in to sort out the TV reception for us. She even started us off with some delicious cake, fruits and milk! We could not have asked for more! Thank you Cristina for every little thing!
This location is just perfect. There are several beautiful places around the house to relax at every daytime. In 15 minutes you reach the city center by train. We had a great time. Thanks for all.
Villa as lovely as the photos suggest ! The inside stays cool during the hot summer days and conversely you won't get chilly when the nights are fresh. Getting to the heart of Barcelona only takes a bit more than 15 minutes so accessibility is not a problem during the day - however late at night the distance does become a bit problematic, as trains stop running at 11:30pm (except on Friday and Saturday nights). The setting is great, in particular the view of Les Planes at dusk !
Beatriz was very kind and welcoming, she provided us with a few addresses and some useful tips concerning transports, etc. She was also always available whenever we had questions.
Be wary of staying on the large terrace behind the house late at night, neighbours are close and may be disturbed even if you are simply chatting.
All in all, thanks to Beatriz for a very pleasant stay in Barcelona !
Very beautiful view from the villa!
Cristina and Roman are super nice people!
Easy to get to the center of the city.
Wonderful experience for everybody who want to spend lovely time in Barcelona!
Best wishes for all the tenants after!
Cristina's (aka Beatriz's) villa is lovely and, as many others have noted, extremely convenient to the center of Barcelona. It was wonderful to be ensconced in what felt like a small mountain village (that included daily encounters with some friendly local wild boars on the 5 min. walk to the train station), and yet have just a 20 min. trip to Barri Gothic, Barceloneta and all the pleasures of our favorite neighborhoods. Cristina is very warm and friendly, and graciously welcomed our group with cake, muffins, fruit and coffee. She provided insider tips about restaurants and activities, made phone calls on our behalf, and offered practical suggestions about how to avoid lines at popular tourist sights. She also responded immediately when we had problems with the bathroom drain -- it was repaired the following morning. Two of the three upstairs bedrooms have french doors that open out onto the beautiful terrace overlooking the town. The downstairs bedroom is small and directly off the kitchen, but it does have a private bath. There is a large patio with ample outside space and a ping-pong table that helped keep the kids occupied. One key issue: if you are heading to the villa from the airport, either have Cristina arrange a taxi for you, or take the airport shuttle to Plaza Catalunya and get on the FGC train (which is right there in Catalunya) to the Les Planes station (just north of the city). The villa can be quite difficult to find by car -- most taxi drivers have no idea how to get there, so the fare can get quite high if they get lost! Overall, a wonderful place to stay and get the best of all worlds -- country and city! Many thanks, Cristina!
