Charming apartment in the heart of Cadaqués, the most beautiful village at the Costa Brava. Fully furnished, it is a loft with a covered terrace and views over the old town. You can even see a bit of the Mediterranean! The apartment is small, that's true. One big space, 60 sqm. But it is so beautiful! The terrace is covered and looks over a private garden.
Located in the center of town, you are in walking distance to the very famous Cadaqués beaches, lovely restaurants, very nice boutiques and art galleries. The apartment is a perfect retreat to just relax or finish the novel you are writing right now, or to think about future projects.
Cadaqués is near to Port Lligat, where surrealistic painter Dalí lived. Artists from around the world still characterize the daily life in Cadaqués, where Rucksack tourists meet luxury travellers and everyone goes to have the morning coffee at one of the charming bars at the seaside. On Mondays there is a market where you can get everything, and there are little events as for instance artist and antiques-markets you can book - or not!
A Ryanair-Airport is an hour away, you reach Barcelona in two hours, the same as Perpignan.
We spent a delightful week in Barbara's apartment. We just felt HOME. Very well situated, you've got everything you need (supermarket, scooter rental, press,etc...) a few steps away, but not with the noise of the main street as the apartment is behind the first rank of building. Very nice view, south orientated. There really is nothing to say about the apartment itself: nice, clean, well equiped. But as perfection is not of this world, I would just mention the lack of something to hang the towels in the bathroom. Really nothing to make a fuss of... Thank U Barbara !
L'appartement est charmant, très fonctionnel et bien placé dans la ville.
Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour et recommandons vivement l'appartement de BARBARA.
Deux remarques toutefois, le manque de rideaux pour occulter la lumière du jour le matin et le bruit des scooters dans la rue derrière la chambre.
We had six days in Barbaras wonderfull appartment in Cadaques. The location was perfect - short walking distance to sea, harbour and restaurants. The appartment was nice, clean and everything was working fine. We will recommend this flat to everybody who needs a good place to live in Cadaques.
We had some trouble with the citys parkingrules - use the big free parkinglot at the camping site; ten minutes walk from the appartment!!
This apartment was in a great location, short walk to the beach. What a beautiful town, absolutely magical. The apartment has everything that you need. It was a little noisy but I think everywhere on the island would be noisy as motorbikes etc so not the apartments fault, also we had a baby with us so maybe we noticed it more than others would. very helpful to have a washing machine there. overall we were happy. lovely balcony to enjoy an evening drink . Thanks Barbara!
El apartamento es perfecto para pasar unos días en Cadaqués. Muy céntrico, tranquilo, acogedor, confortable, amplio, limpio y agradable.
El trato con Bárbara fué exquisito. El único pero es que el colchón necesita un cambio.
Absolutely loved Barbara's place and definitely hope to go back. Very relaxed. Charming. Just my cup of tea. No fuss. But everything you need is there. The balcony is a lovely place to lunch and relax. We really loved it.
By the way, in reference to previous comments: the mattress has been changed :)
We loved Barbara's apartment. We stayed there for about ten days in early April 2013 and had a great time.
There are some downsides: old houses throughout Spain are built for heat, but Easter time is becoming increasingly rainy, and when we arrived the apartment felt moist and chilly. We had to heat for most of our stay and the little electric heater the apartment is equipped with was of very little help. Once the good weather came, things turned for the best.
Another (minor) thing was that the kitchen clothes were old, worn down, with stains and some even had holes. It's not a huge deal, but that's something where a minor investment could raise the "user experience" quite a lot – let's put it like that.
On the bright side: the apartment is quite spacious, much more than it looks like in the pictures. The terrace is fully covered, so it's exposed to the sun to a little extent only, but it's really enjoyable and I guess even more in hot summer days. You do NOT see the sea, since it faces a little garden with very high and very thick trees, but the view over the hill is quite enjoyable nonetheless.
The kitchen is very well equipped. The gas stove works very well and having a washing machine is a great advantage if you are out for longer. We had no problems with anything throughout our stay.
Another big plus was for us that we could also park the car very close to the apartment. There's a school very close to the flat, for which the street is closed to traffic in certain hours, but we had no problems with that.
One last thing is that Barbara does apparently not live in Cadaqués. We got the keys and assistance from some contact of hers. This came to a surprise but in the end it worked out perfectly.
All in all, I would gladly go again and would recommend it to anyone, particularly if you go in the warm season.
Eine wunderbare Wohnung! Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen und kommen bald wieder.
The apartment positioned perfectly. I am fully satisfied with the choice recommend it to anyone staying in a cadaques at the apartment of Barbara.
Overall a great stay!! Lovely and spacious appartment in the heart of Cadaques. 300m from the beach and with a great balcony. Great to have a wasmachine and other farely good equipment (among which a blender, dishwasher, stove, utinsels, etc). A few points of critics as well: parking is a problem, the bed is a bit small for tall people and feels relatively old with springs in your back. During our stay the upstair neighbours were moving their furniture contantly during the day AND night.
