Description

The space

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.

Guest access

Private garden with mountain views. Barbecue. Parking next to the house.

Interaction with guests

I use to respect privacy and freedom of guests, but I attend appropriately all questions and requests for information. So, I'll be glad to help you if you need it!

The neighborhood

The house is located in the upper district of Sarria-Sant Gervasi, in the Collserola mountain, declared Natural Park.

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" ).

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.

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.

About 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.

For more information visit our guide!

Getting around

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 €.

Nona is an excellent hostess, available to help you with whatever you may want/need. The place is in an excellent location, up in the mountains surrounding Barcelona. Commuting to Barcelona center (Pl. Catalunya) is easy by Metro/cable car and takes 30 mins approx.

Nona was very nice and hospitable. The neighborhood was beautiful. Watch out for funicular hours because it is almost impossible to move from Vallvidrera Superior to Vallvidrera inferior. But all was pleasant and good.

Hey, Nonas house is lokated in a quiet area with a great view over the city of barcelona. Very relaxing in contrast to the very busy citylife. The room is small and cozy with the possibility to make your own coffee in the morning and drink it in the garden. The traffic connections are reasonable. The climate on the hill is nicely fresh in the evening and mornig times ;)

Nona and the rustic room were absolutely fantastic! Nona and her neighbors were very inviting and warm, but not intrusive. The views from the trails nearby were fantastic and we absolutely loved waking up in a beautiful park each morning. We were there in the heat of summer (July), but kept the doors open at night and felt safe and cool in the night air. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. Nona was also very helpful with suggestions for local activities and restaurants. It was great to get a little bit more of an authentic experience of Barcelona. Perfect for people who want to be away from the city and enjoy a little of the natural setting of Barcelona. The room and the stay were everything we were hoping for and more. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend it highly.

Nona's house is a great combination of both proximity to the city (about 20 minutes to Plaza Catalunya) and peace and quiet, close to a nature reserve. The short walk to the cable car gives a great view of Barclona. The independent guest room is clean and practical with a garden and a lot of privacy. Nona is a great host, she really made sure we felt welcome and helped us out with whatever we needed while at the same time respecting our privacy. We had a great time there, we'd like to return sometime.

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 :-)
