Interaction with Guests
We're on hand if you need us.
You are located in Gracia. A village within a city as people describe it; walking distance to everywhere it is only 15 minute walk to Passeig de Gracia yet a step away from that city feeling. It enjoys bustling squares and vibrant bar and cafe life. If you want to experience the real Barcelona and feel like a local this is the location for you. There are plenty of food markets, boutiques, specialty shops, cafes and restaurants all in close proximity.
Gracia is in a district bubbling with local bars, cinemas and theatres. There is one of the few original version cinemas that offer 8 different shows. The most characteristic thing about the neighbourhood is it’s squares full with bars and terraces to have a drink or a lunch. Many might compare Gracia with New York's East Village. It’s close enough to all the touristic spots (you can even walk to Park Güell or the Sagrada Familia) but it is far enough to avoid touristic crowds.
The apartment is 2 minutes away from the green line subway station which can takes you within 3 stops to the city centre and the gothic quarter. Or you can do an easy 20 min downhill walk along Passeig de Gracia down to Plaza Catalunya and the beginning of the Ramblas.
The train station is only 2 subway stops away. Here you can find connections to many of the beaches north and south of Barcelona or to the mountain areas and the Pyrenees.

The apartment was exactly as we expected, if not better. Such a lovely haven from the hustle and bustle of Barcelona.
We were made very welcome and had been provided with helpful details in getting there from the airport.
There was a great information booklet about the local area, including walks.
The apartment was clean and tidy. Gracia is such a nice area having its own atmosphere with access to lots of local places to eat and shop. We loved it.
The stay at Phil an Fionas apartment was great. The apartment has everything you need and is located a few minutes walk from everything. We sadly didnt meet Fiona but Phil is a very nice man that takes care of everything you need. We definitly are going back to Barcelona and this is the place we want to stay at again. Thank you, we had a great time!
What a fantastic apartment! We can’t thank Phil and Fiona enough for letting us stay in their home.
I was travelling with a group of friends, and this place was great for us to relax and have easy access to the sites of Barcelona. The apartment is across the road from a late opening supermarket and just down the road from the Metro station and a MacDonald’s (that was very handy!).
Overall the apartment is finished to a very high standard and was incredibly clean on arrival. The two terraces offered a great place for me, and my 6 friends to relax. The BBQ in the back was a great addition as well as a lemon tree, which went down well with all the gin and tonics we were drinking. The wifi connection was solid (unlike some previous apartments we’ve stayed in) and could not fault anything else around the place.
Although there are only 3 bedrooms this apartment easily accommodated for 7 people, as the sofa bed in the front of was easy to set up and very comfortable.
If I’m travelling back to Barcelona again I will definitely check if this place is available!
Thank you Phil and Fiona, we all had a great time and thank you for letting us stay.

Very nice apartment ; very well located; Phil and Fiona are nice and easy; thanks
This apartment was unbelievably perfect for our first time in Barcelona. The location placed us in an area that felt not overly touristy and as a result provided us with an excellent starting point. We arrived on one of the busiest and loudest nights of the year and had no trouble sleeping as the bedrooms are isolated from a lot of street noise. The apartment has ample cooling for those hot days and a beautiful outdoor courtyard to relax and get away from it all. I will definitely be returning here next year!
Phil and Fiona's Barcelona apartment exceeded all of our expectations. I was proud to bring my family here, and would come back anytime. Perfect location, very walkable, and the lemons that drop from Lola the tree make for great lemonade.
Stay here if you can, it's incredible.
Great apartment and as described/illustrated in the photos. Great communication from both Phil and Fiona before, during and after our trip. Our reception was great - very warm and were shown all around the apartment and pointed in the right direction with regard to the local area/restaurants etc. Wifi was lightning fast and the two terraces were great. Would highly recommend and would definitely stay again.
