Lovely, cosy 2 bedroom apartment with air conditioning for the hot summers. Access to a roof terrace with fantastic views across the city.

The Space

This apartment is great for those of you who want to be central, but far enough from the maddening crowd of tourists, traffic and noisey bars. Situated in the upper part of Barcelona in the residential area of Gracia you'll get a real sense of what it's like to live as a local.

The flat has 2 bedrooms, 1 with a double bed and the other with a sofa bed. It is perfect for 3 people, or a couple with 2 small children. It could fit 4 people, but it might be tight on the sofa bed. The flat has air conditioning great for the hot summer months, access to the roof terrace (with 360 degree views of Sagrada Famila, Montjuic, Tibidabo and the sea), where you'll be able to enjoy a lovely breakfast or dinner. The open plan Kitchen and Living room has a TV, Fridge/Freezer, Hob & Oven, Microwave, and everything else you would require for a short stay. There is also a separate laundry room with a top loading washing machine available for your use. Fresh, clean towels & linen will be supplied on your arrival.

Please note this is a top floor apartment on the 5th floor without an elevator, so you will get some great exercise whilst you are here. You'll also sleep peacefully as it's on a pedestrianised street so no traffic noise at night.

The Neighborhood

The district of Gracia, is nesteled between the top of Passeig de Gracia and Parc Guell, it´s made out of pedestrian streets and lovely little squares with cafes, bars and restaurants. It´s perfect during the day for aimless strolls and alternative shopping. As the sun sets, its slow pace picks up a little and the streets and bars are filled with locals. Between 15-21 August there is the Gracia festival where the streets and squares are full of people celebrating the district, the best time to experience a real local fiesta!!

Getting around

The flat is well communicated with 4 metro stations in a 5-10 mins walk, Joanic & Verdaguer (L4), Fontana (L3) & Diagonal (L3 & L5) with only 2 stops to the centre. You can also walk to Passeig de Gracia with it's luxury stores and 2 famous Gaudi buildings in 10 mins. The centre for Placa Catalunya and Las Ramblas in about 20 - 30 mins depending on how quickly you walk. Parc Guell is only 1 stop from Fontana and Sagrada Famila 1 stop from Verdaguer, or both are a 15 mins walk from the apartment. You'll also find a local market and food stores around the corner for all your grocery needs and essentials.

Other Things to Note

Finally to ensure your stay is comfortable and stress free, you will be welcomed by a native English speaker with refreshments, a free map of Barcelona and friendly familiarization of the City, Restaurants, Bars, Tourist Attractions, Health, Leisure and Night Life that Barcelona has to offer. Hope to welcome you soon and share my experiences of this great city with you.

  • Brilliant apartment in a fantastic area, was absolutely everything and more that we had hoped. My boyfriend and I stayed there for four nights and had a wonderful time.
    Gracia is a really lovely neighbourhood, in close walking distance to lots of great (and affordable) little restaurants and bars that are full of locals as opposed to hoards of tourists - polar opposite of staying near Ramblas where I've stayed previously. Perfect for wandering around and easy to get to other parts of Barcelona either en foot or by Metro (3 stations nearby). Also in walking distance to Guell Park, Sagrada Familia and easy Metro ride to beach.
    The apparent itself is spacious, comfortable, nicely decorated, has good AC, wifi and a beautiful roof terrace with amazing views of the city. Only thing is is its 4-5 flights up stairs which was no problem for us but wouldn't be so not gd for people with mobility problems.
    Aaron was brilliant host. Gave us thorough directions of how to get to flat, met us there and was friendly and gave us lots of advice and tips about what to do/how to get around the city. He also met us when we left to collect the key and let us leave our bags at the apparent for the afternoon after our official check out time.
    Thoroughly recommend Gracia as a place to stay, the apartment and Aaron as a very reliable and friendly host.

  • Aaron was a warm and welcoming host, who was very quick to respond to all messages. The flat was brilliant to stay in - good size, very clean, all facilities included and a roof terrace with beautiful views. Be prepared for some exercise as the flat is on the 5th floor with no lift. It's worth it though. Aaron met us at the flat and was flexible about the check in time. He gave us a helpful rundown of Barcelona. The area near the flat was really nice. Not that touristy and busy, but still lots of bars, restaurants, plazas and a market with all the fruit, veg, fish and meat you'd ever need. Couldn't have asked for a better stay. Thank you!
