>> THE HOUSE
Is located at "Carretera de las Aguas" ( Collserola Natural Park ) in Sarria-Sant Gervasi district. The environment ( one of the best areas in Barcelona ) is beautiful and very quiet. Although it is in a privileged place into the city, surrounded by nature, is very well connected, just 5 minutes from the railway stop "FGC - Peu del Funicular" (S2/S1). From here, it only takes 20 minutes to get to Plaza Catalunya.
>> THE GUEST ROOM WITH PRIVATE GARDEN
The room we offer our guests is located outside the house, so that privacy is total. It has separate entrance and a private garden for guest use. The room is about 24 m2, has a bathroom with shower and double bed. It is equipped with all the amenities for a pleasant and comfortable stay. Wireless Internet access is available. Maximum occupancy is for 2 people.
>> THE AREA
Collserola is declared Natural Park. If you enjoy walking, you can take long walks along "Carretera de las Aguas", from where you have the most amazing and beautiful view of Barcelona. From here you can walk up Tibidabo. This is one of the most popular running/walking routes in Barcelona.
>> COLLSEROLA NATURAL PARK
Collserola means, above all, nature; the kind of nature that, literally, brings a breath of fresh air to life in the great city, making it a more pleasant place to live in.
The information centre is the main point of welcome and reference for visitors, providing basic, practical and general information: sites, possible activities (themed walks, guided walks), transport, services... The information centre is located at "Carretera de l'Església, 92", very close from our house.
>> NEARBY SERVICES
If you take the Funicular ( cable-car ), just one stop up is "Vallvidrera", a small town where you will find all the basics: tobacconist, bar, restaurant, news-stand and a small grocery.
The closest neighborhood is "Sarrià" (only 1 train stop), one of the most exclusive areas of the city, where you'll find very good restaurants ( one of them "El Vell Sarrià", specializing in rice ) and the bar with the best "patatas bravas" in Barcelona ( "Bar Tomás" ). For more information visit our guide!
>> PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
From here, you will move with the train (FGC, lines S1/S2), combined with the cable-car (Funicular Vallvidrera). These lines connect directly to Plaza Catalunya in 20 minutes.
The train and the cable-car runs from Monday to Thursday, from 05:00 to 00:00 h. On Friday, Saturday and eve of public holidays, from 05:00 to 01:52 h. A taxi from the center to house costs about 12/15 €.
Although we have a cat (very nice and quiet) she has not access to the guest room.
Other Things to Note
Please, get there before 00:00 h. to check in.
This is a peaceful and natural environment. In order to respect our neighborhood, we ask you to abstain of partying, thanks :)
La casa de Nona es maravillosa y situada en una zona especial de la ciudad. Se puede dar paseos todos los dias en la naturaleza mas bella y ir al centro de Barcelona en 30 minutos. Nona fue realmente muy acogedora y amable, me facilito' mi estancia con todo lo que podía y me hizo sentir en casa! El cuarto esta muy bien equipado y es independiente de la casa. El aire estaba un poco húmedo al principio pero Nona me dio otro calefactor y todo resulto perfecto. Muchísimas gracias!
La casa de Nona esta super bien ubicada para los que buscan tranquilidad, estacionamiento y sobre todo una vista espectacular de todo Barcelona. Nos tomaba en promedio desde su casa al centro una media hora. Para los que quieren descansar lejos del ruido de la cuidad, no duden en contactar a Nona. Ella es una persona muy agradable, siempre estuvo al tanto de nuestra llegada. Se preocupo siempre en saber si todo iba bien y si estábamos a gusto en el cuarto. No nos vimos mucho pero en el cuarto habían libros turísticos y mapas de la ciudad, así como tambien una pequena refrigeradora, un micro-ondas, un hervidor y implementos de aseo personal. El closet es super espacioso y las camas cómodas. Desafortunadamente no pudimos aprovechar la terraza pero regresaremos en verano puesto que la vista debe ser impresionante!!! Para los deportistas, hay un parque super chevere en donde la gente corre de dia como de noche ;) Gracias Nona, pasamos 4 lindos dias.
Nona is a very kind and friendly person. She is discreet but available when you need her. The room was clean, the bed more than comfortable the garden cute,... The room is a bit humid but the deshumidifier is works well and it is not embarrassing at all. If you are searching for a quiet place to be out of the crowded Rambla, this is definitely the good place to stay. Moreover it is very easy to go in the center with the cable car (5 min by walk) and the train. If we go back in Barcelona, we will stay there again without hesitation ! Thank you Nona & Cris :-)
Spacious, comfortable and clean room in a fantastic environment. Wonderful little garden and terrace overlooking the hilly neighborhood. Nona and Cris are delicious hosts. Thank you!
Great place to stay just what we were looking for small and fine,
Nona and Chris are great hosts
it was nice 2 weeks with you
Greetings Steffi & Andreas
Barcelona is cool, fashion, trendy, easygoing, culture, beach, food, tourists, fiesta and sometime, even many times, overcrowded.
If you want to enjoy everything but with a chance to scape from the noisy part of the Barcelona experience, this is the place.
Nona and Cris 's place is ideal to get out of the city in few minutes.
The room is independent with a great garden to relax before and after the intensity of Barcelona.
Nona is a very welcoming and friendly person.
If you want to see Barcelona from a different angle, here you have a great deal!
Nona and Cristina are the perfect hosts ! They kindly met us and were very careful of our needs, so that we feel at home. The room is nice, the bathroom is a plus, but the location of the place makes above all the experience amazing : you want Barcelona and all his stuff, you're already in the center in a few minutes ; you want nature and calm, walk up the park or in the nearby villages.
Thank you !
