About This Listing
Cosy apartment with wooden floor and roof terrace in pedestrian area in hip Sarrià. Many beautiful cafés and restaurants nearby. Perfectly connected with public transport (bus and underground).
Our beautiful 65 square meter apartment with oak floor is located in a two storey building (ground floor, first floor, roof terrace). There are only two flats in the building and a design studio on the ground floor.
The apartment has a bedroom with a large double bed and a large living room with fully equipped, integrated kitchen. The apartment is bright and cozy and is ideal for 2 people but can exceptionally be used by up to 3 people.
Satellite TV (Astra) and Spanish TV are available, as well as a fast Internet access. A printer is also provided on request.
The kitchen is well equipped and is also suitable for larger-scale (website hidden) is done on an induction hob, dishwasher and microwave are available as well as coffee maker, kettle and toaster.
The modern bathroom also has a bathtub. Two air conditioners provide a pleasant coolness in the summer, and the central heating provides warm temperatures in winter, although you'll probably not need it.
The washer and the dryer are upstairs near the roof terrace.
The roof terrace with wooden decking was completely renovated two years ago and now provides a wide, flat area for sunbathing and relaxing.
A Weber grill, a large table with two benches and several chairs invite to have lunch there or to chill in the evening. The roof terrace is only occasionally used by the neighbors in the morning to dry clothes; they are a nice and communicative older couple.
The apartment is located in the heart of the former village Sarria, a village in which the Catalan bourgeoisie had her summer residences and was integrated into Barcelona only in the 20s of the last century. The typical village character of this district is still alive.
Located in a pedestrianized area, you can explore the city from here, since only 300 meters from here the metro connects to the city center (nearest metro station is Sarrià, at 5 minutes walking, from there 10 minutes to the centre) and numerous buses to other major parts of the city. Located between the prestigious district of Pedralbes (residence of footballers and business leaders and formerly also one of the daughters of the King of Spain) and the bourgeois districts of Sant Gervasi and Tres Torres, Sarria forms the border to the nature reserve and recreation area of the mountains separating Barcelona from the rest of Catalonia (15 minutes on foot). A small restaurant with terrace, recommended by Michelin, is located diagonally opposite; there are numerous cafes and restaurants on the main road nearby, contributing to the popularity of the district.
The entire apartment, to roof terrace as described. Internet.

We really enjoyed our stay in Oliver's flat. The property is in a real nice location in the old part of Sarria with plenty of restaurants and amenities really close by. Centre of town is really easily reachable in 15 min with metro. Oliver has been really flexible as he accommodated our late evening arrival, allowed us to check out relatively late as we had an evening flight back and provided useful info on the area. I would definitely recommend the place to have a true Barcelona experience.
My husband and I stayed for two weeks in this well equipped, spacious apartment. We liked being out of the tourist center yet with very easy metro access to everything. The neighborhood has many nearby amenities. The kitchen was set up for serious cooking. The rooftop was a pleasant extra. I did my Tai Chi there every morning. The bed was good sized for two and comfortable. Some evening noise from a nearby restaurant required closing the windows. Overall it was a tranquil and pleasant experience. Well recommend.
Es lief alles wie abgesprochen ab, beide waren pünktlich an der Wohnung, Einführung gut, jegliche Hilfen wurden angeboten, sogar noch bei der notwendigen Parkplatzsuche, die dank der Ortskenntnis des Gastgebers erfolgreich war.
Die Lage ist gut, ruhig, sauber. In wenigen Minuten ist man an einer Bus- oder Metrostation. Mit der Metro in 15 min im Zentrum. Kleine Läden um die Ecke, mehrere Bäcker und Pasticcerien, sogar eine kleine Markthalle. Auch Restaurants, die uns allerdings nicht so begeistern konnten wie die Führer, in denen sie zu finden waren. Vielleicht haben wir mit unserem Essen auch nur Pech gehabt.
Dachterrasse super zur Erholung. Die schöne Wohnung können wir mit gutem Gewissen weiter empfehlen.
We were warmly welcomed and the hosts were there when we arrived. Good orientation to the neighbourhood and facilities was provided. The spacious and comfortable apartment was spotlessly clean. Everything was great. Sarria is a nice part of the city. A short walk to the transit (subway) and less than 15 minutes to central Barcelona. The hop on and hop off tourist bus stops nearby too. Everything is close at hand like resturants, markets and wine .
Wir wurden herzlich Willkommen geheissen. Wir haben eine nette, ruhige und saubere Wohnung vorgefunden. Die Dachterrasse war ein schöner Abschluss nach langem Barcelonatag. Bei Fragen war unser Gastgeber immer direkt zu erreichen, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Herzlichen Dank ,Heike und Dorothea
My third time in this apartment. And won't be the last.
Clean, tons of light, in a nice neighborhood. Interaction with the host was perfect.
We had a really wonderful week staying at Oliver's cosy apartment in Sarrià. He describes it well and the pictures are totally accurate. We loved sitting out on the little terrace in the mornings, and we used the grill on the rooftop to cook dinner one night. All the appliances worked great and the place was clean and neat. We totally fell in love with the neighborhood of Sarrià, which feels like a charming village yet is easily accessible via metro to the main attractions of the city. Absolutely loved strolling up and down Carrer Major de Sarrià, buying treats at all the little shops. Oliver made us feel very welcome by accommodating our early arrival time and by making himself available for the little questions we had throughout the week. Perfect place for a couple, and okay for an additional third person, as long as they are okay with sleeping on the couch (it doesn't convert into a proper bed but our teenage son slept well enough on it.) I can't recommend this place enough and am already fantasizing about coming back! (Oh, and if you do stay here, make sure not to miss dining at Cafe Vivanda--the charming back courtyard of which is visible from the apartment windows!! We had a most delicious and delightful meal there.) THANK YOU, OLIVER, for helping to make our family vacation experience a truly memorable one!!!

About the Host, Oliver
I grew up in Germany, but later I went to Spain with my parents. Now I work in Barcelona, visit frequently Majorca, where my parents live, and spend a lot of time in Berlin, a city I love and where I have many friends.
My apartment in Barcelona is perfect for short-term-stays (and even long stays), and I spend a lot of time thinking about how I can make the stay of my guests even more comfortable.
The house we rent in Majorca used to be the home of my parents (who now live nearby), and you will find a comfortable, authentic, personal, well equipped and spacious home there for your stay on this beautiful island.
and the house we rent in Majorca are perfect will I will make sure that you feel comfortable and have a wonderful stay in Barcelona or Berlin. If you have any question, feel free to ask!
Einer der besseren Weinhandlungen der Umgebung
Ein Standardsupermarkt, schön lässt es sich hier allerdings nicht kaufen
Locker und nett
Feinere Bar an belebter Kreuzung, mit Terrasse
An Sommerabenden sitzt man gut unter den Pinien
Unbedingt die Bravas (frittierte Kartoffeln mit scharfer Sosse) probieren
Wenn Tomas mal voll ist, kann man hier auch etwas umfangreicher essen... aber immer Fettes: Spiegeleier, Patatas Bravas, Speck...
Ein malerisches Plätzchen mit einigen netten Cafés
This bike rental has been recommended two times by our guests, they have bikes for 6 Euros a day (April 2015)
