The Space

This is the story about a flat which was turned into a loft by the creativity of a girl (the actual owner) and the power of her hands (as well as her husband's back, and their friends and relatives sweat!!). The loft grew up and so did the family. Following the same path as their mother, the kids did also contributed to decorate the house (with their wall paintings or floor scratches, for instance!!). Every little part of this loft has something of us (starting from the feet printed floor tile of the bathroom and ending with the three babies that have been born naturally in the house). If you feel like willing to form part of this story by coming and sharing your soul with this loft, this is your best option during your Barcelona visit.

On the other hand, if you're simply looking for a place to stay.. well, then I'll tell you this is a loft close to the Born area, El Palau de la Música or Ciutadella's Park. It is located in a very comercial street during the day but a very pleasant and quiet place during the night (sometimes even with windows and balcony door wide open). Eating out, shopping,.. is granted in full of nearby places.

As the appartment is a loft, everything -except for the toilette- is a unique space with very high ceilings. There are two glass platforms -I told you it was a fancy and creative apartment, didn't I?- that serve as spatious bedrooms with a glass corridor that connects them. Perfect place for children, we have two kid beds, a small table with two chairs, fairy tales and colours (we decided to tranform our children creativity in our walls by cute drawings in sheets of papers, feel free to contribute!!).

An enormous kitchen (if we had to built it again, we would buy a ruler first!!) with an owen, pans, pots, dishes, dishwasher, toaster, coffee maker.. is provided. Since we are not very fond of the stupid box (TV), we have a very small one which can only be used to see DVDs with a DVD player. We have (from Feb'2015) a new broadband wifi, a washing machine and a coach (which can be split in two individual mattresses).

Hope to see you soon!

Instead, contact us first providing us some info about you and yout trip (age, interests, exact arrival and departure times -or flights-, etc..)
