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.

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.
I stayed at Phil and Fiona's Apartment for 4 days with some friends for a short vacation in Barcelona. Everything was organized perfectly from our arrival to our departure. Phil and Fiona were extremely responsive to any questions or concerns that I had and went above and beyond my expectations.
The apartment itself worked out great. We spent most of our time enjoying the weather and a few cocktails(with lemons from the lemon tree!) outside on the central patio. A great place to chat and relax.
Phil and Fiona also included several information booklets that contained everything we needed to know for the stay from restaurant suggestions, tourist attractions, and even 24/7 food options ;).
A very pleasant stay and I would highly suggest.
A wonderful stay at the apartment , beautifully maintained , great facilities showers , air conditioning, wine fridge etc, the apartment was all on one level so excellent for restricted access. The lemon tree being a particular highlight "the best lemons we have ever tasted" . The location of the apartment is great plenty of amenities on your doorstep . Phil was super helpful and available on our arrival, the process was very smooth and accomadating. We would not hesitate in recommending this fantastic apartment in Barcelona.
It was a great stay and it was just as what was advertised. Phil and Fiona were extremely helpful in helping to arrange for the transfer and providing useful information in and about Barcelona. For Non-Spanish speakers like us, we truly appreciated the finer touches in the apartment such as the provision of movies in English, and the user-friendly guides about the area & the various appliances.
We really enjoyed staying at this apt. Fiona and Phil were very attentive to our needs. Location was central to everything. The check-in process went smoothly. It looks just like the photos and we loved the outdoor patio area with all the greenery. The apt. was very clean and well stocked with amenities. I can't express enough how happy we were with our stay and how to come back.... :)
