My husband Paul Raymonde and I, run tutored watercolour painting holidays in Barcelona from our home (La Terraza Atico) and when we're not busy with painting guests, we make available bedrooms for B&B. You are welcome if we have availability, to join our tutored watercolour painting class. Sixty euros per person, materials included (and a picnic with wine).
Our rooms are ideal for singles, couples or families (children from 8 upwards or discuss with me).
We have extensive knowledge of Barcelona and are always willing to advise on tourist attractions, current exhibitions, good restaurants and tapa bars. How to take a trip to Sitges or visit the Cava capital of Catalonia Sant Sadurni D'Anoia.

Nous avons passé deux nuits dans ce magnifique appartement et nous avons adoré! Angela et son mari sont deux personnes adorables, très gentils, à l'écoute, serviables. L'appartement est fantastique, tout est très propre et calme. La situation géographique est parfaite. Lorsque nous retournerons à Barcelone nous reviendrons ici sans hésiter, nous gardons un très bon souvenir de notre séjour chez eux, dommage que ça ait été si court! Merci pour tout, c'est le meilleur B&B jamais testé!
Paul is very nice and kind, he get introduce everything in the flat to us. We enjoy living in the flat, it is comfortable, clean and tidy. We got everything we need during our stay. The flat located at a residential district with many public transport nearby. If you wish have to experience a warm and friendly stay, we recommended this flat to you.
I had no opportunity to meet Angela, but Paul is an excellent host. The ático is amazing, no noise, huge, clean, beautiful. I was like at home... no, better than at home.
Next time I will rerun with my wife!
Thank you very much Paul.
this is a very good house!
beatifull and quite.
The owners are very kind persons.
There is a very good Balcony！！！！
Angela's penthouse on Av. Diagonal is very spacious and well decorated. A true home. My bedroom was clean and quiet. Air conditioning units in every bedroom should you need to use them. There is plenty of space around the flat, never a crowded feeling place. The terrace is beautiful, and Angela provided a very nice breakfast before I left in the morning. On top of that, she is very friendly and full of recommendations. I would definitely stay again. Thank you Angela!

About the Host, Angela
Hello, I'm from Notting Hill in London, UK. My husband Paul and I moved to our family home in Barcelona October 2012, leaving behind my 2 daughters Natalie and Saskia and my beautiful grand kiddies Alina and Nikolas (they are all very happy in London and visit often!).
Saskia manages our home in London and will look after you there and Alina loves to meet new guests!
In London I used to freelance as a Personal Assistant to the rich and famous and Paul was a professional cartoonist and caricaturist. Now Paul concentrates on his painting.
Having established ourselves in beautiful Barcelona we run tutored watercolour painting holidays (la-terraza-atico). People visit from all around the globe and stay with us for a week. Paul takes guests out painting in the mornings, tutors them and then brings them back for lunch. After lunch guests are free for the rest of the day to explore this vibrant city in Catalonia. When we don't have painting guests in Barcelona I rent out bedrooms for bed and breakfast.
Paul and I are happy, friendly people with an open mind. Between us we speak English, German, Italian and French and are learning Spanish (and Catalan). Staying with us either in London or Barcelona will be a treat and we promise to do our best to make you feel comfortable, happy, safe and well. Questions welcome.
