The Space

We are lucky to live in a beautiful, large and stylish bright, sunny fourth floor apartment in a traditional building right in the centre of El Poble Sec.

The lounge / dining room is a large open plan space with a nice sunny balcony.
We have a piano (François is a piano teacher) and a large collection of books and music on vinyl and CD.

The guest room has a comfortable new double bed and the room is bright and clean.
It has an external window and some herbs in the window box.
The room also has blinds, shutters and a fan.

We have free fast WiFi.
Fresh clean towels and bed linen are provided and there are a collection of guidebooks and maps for you to use.
There is a hair dryer, iron, ironing board and washing machine which guests are welcome to use.

You are welcome to help yourselves to breakfast and we have a good selection of:

Cereals - muesli, fruit and fibre, cornflakes etc.

Milk and fruit juice.

We are happy to provide you with information on what's going on in the city and if there is anything we can help you with during your stay please ask us.

The Neighborhood

Poble Sec has everything you could want, there are so many great bars and restaurants withing a few minutes walk.
It really is an excellent and friendly neighbourhood.
On Carrer Blai there are many tapas bars, one of our favourites is Blai Tonight where they have a great selection of fresh Montiditos (Pinchos) for 1€ (1.20€ on the terrace) just take a plate from the bar and help yourselves remembering to keep the sticks so the waiter can work out how much to charge you.

La Rambla is a 15 minute walk and El Gotico is about a 20 minute walk.
The beautiful park of Montjuic is literally on our doorstep and is a really beautiful place to go for a walk or have a picnic.

Paral-lel metro station (L2 and L3) is a couple of minutes walk and there are numerous bus services running along Paral-lel including the night bus.
Sagrada Famillia is on L2 (20 minutes) and Park Guell is on L3 (25 minutes) and Passeig de Gracia where you'll find Casa Batllo and La Pedrera is also on L2.
You can walk to the beach in about 30 minutes or you can take the bus from Paral-lel.

Buses and taxis on Avingunda Paral-lel.
A 15 minute walk into the city centre for La Rambla etc. etc.
