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.

Great Apartment in a very cool place in Barcelona. We were lucking to be staying at the time of the annual Festival for Garcia so a great buzz to the place.
The apartment is great for a family, setup well , the kids loved it , teenage son in the 'cave' was perfect! Kitchen adaquate enough but to be honest in the area its in you will eat out as there are some great restaurants for all purse sizes. Phil, the host did go through the info that comes with the apartment which does include, things to do and places to (email hidden)ry helpful.
Très bel appartement (spacieux, confortable, moderne) dans un super quartier de Barcelone (Gracia). A 100 m de la rue Gran Gracia, à 300 m du métro et pourtant il règne un calme incroyable dans cet appartement. Le patio et la terrasse sont agréables, la climatisation est la bienvenue car il fait vraiment très chaud au mois d’août. Il y a une bonne literie et tout ce qu'il faut pour s'y sentir bien (même des playmobils pour les enfants), juste un petit bémol pour le ménage, à améliorer. Tous les commerces sont à proximité: boulangeries, petit supermarché (juste en face), mercado de la libertad (où l'on peut acheter des moules fraîches et de l'excellent poisson). De bons petits bars ( notamment celui juste à côté de l'appartement, des mojitos bons, pas chers et un bon accueil). L'appartement est bien situé pour faire le tour de Barcelone et rentrer le soir au calme. Nous le recommandons sans hésitation.
Phil is a great host and showed us a warm welcome, he provided the guide book and information which is really helpful. We had a nice stay in the apartment, everything went well. The apartment is homey and cosy, with all you need as in your own home. As listed photos show, the patio and greens are really a plus, you really feel you are part of the space when you water the plants in the morning. The location is good as well, as it's in a local but lively area of the city. It takes around 10 minutes to walk to Casa Mila, shops and restaurants surrounds. Many thanks for providing such a nice place for visitors to Barcelona.
Fiona received us with a warm welcome, explaning everything we needed to know about the place. Place was great, everything worked and we had a wonderful time there with the entire family. Strongly reccomend this place. Great neighborhood, easy access to the center and Fiona made sure that we had all the good tips to enjoy barcelona and also Gracia area. Thanks a lot, we will definately stay there again soon.
The apartment is marvelous! Phil is so nice and give us clear and detailed introduction upon our arrival with his beautiful daughter. The Guidance Book edited by Phil and Fiona is so the clearest book I have every read and make us feel at home with every facility. The location is superb, supermarket, fresh food market and Metro station is quite close and it's so easy to get everything you want. The metro station is only a few minutes walk and through which you coud quickly get to most scenic spots and makes our whole tour so perfect. The kids' room is so cute and our girls love it so much at first sight! Barcelona is a charming city and we would surely choose this apartment should we return here.
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!
