Where you’ll be

Barcelona, Catalunya, Spain

The setting of the house is what really sets it apart. It is located in the heart of the Natural Park of Collserola that rises up over Barcelona’s Metropolitan Area. This well-preserved, 8,000-hectare natural area is a paradise for hikers, bikers and nature lovers. The house offers amazing views to both sides of the mountain: to the east you are greeted with a fully-fledged panoramic view of the city. From the garden, you have view of the valley, and on clear days you will see the mountain of Montserrat.
Vallvidrera village is only less than 1 km away, and it is a lovely walk if you are in need of some basic groceries or if you want to enjoy a beer in the sunny plaza. The village has one convenient store and a bigger supermarket. In the mornings it is an experience in itself to walk to the village and buy fresh bread at the local bakery.
The house is also only a 5-minute walk away from one of Barcelona’s main family attractions, the amusement park of TIbidabo.
In addition the house is just a 5-minute walk away from the Temple of Tibidabo, which is one of the landmarks of Barcelona´s skyline. It is possible to go all the way up to the Pantocrator with an elevator and enjoy a 360º view over the metropolitan area of Barcelona, the Collserola Park and Montserrat.

On the way down going to Vallvidrera, you can also visit the Tower of Collserola, by the architect Norman Foster. The tower has an observation deck, 560m above the sea level with a magnificent panorama over the city.
If you want to meet Barcelona's runners, you are very close to Carretera de les Aigües, where most of them train. There are also many cyclists and walkers with dogs and kids. Carretera de les Aigües is a 20 km-long graveled path that can be done overlooking the city the whole way long.
Please note that the neighborhood enjoys of 2 to 4 degrees less during the whole year, making summer temperatures very pleasant.
In conclusion, Vallvidrera and Tibidabo is one of the most cozy, authentic and envied neighborhoods in Barcelona. The reason is its amazing natural surroundings, the calmness you can enjoy, but still being it so easily accessible to the city center. So, if you are a family, a group of friends or even a couple, this is a perfect option because you will be able to combine both relaxing times by the swimming pool, walking around the park or just tanning in the terrace, with more hectic days in the amazing city of Barcelona. In addition you will get a feeling of how it is to live in one of the most tranquil and charming neighborhoods of the city and you can stay assure you will be feeling like a real local during your whole stay.

During your stay

We are Øyvin from Norway and Martha from Colombia. Since 2000 we have been living in this old library on the roof of Barcelona, which we have and are still renovating. We are travelers, and love discovering new places by land. We went around the world with our own Toyota Land Cruiser for about 5 years ago with our 4 kids (www.elworldtrip.com). Now that our kids are all studying or working abroad, we want to open our house to meet travelers like us, that want to experience the local life in a distinct neighborhood of Barcelona, and share their experiences with us.
