About this listing

Spacious room with much ligth and views with private bathroom in the Villa. The house includes yoga space with fireplace, kitchen, breakfast space, and terraces, 300mb speed internet wifi, 3600m2 garden with balconies over Barcelona and the sea, sunbathing spots, and a vegetable garden. With pubic transport station located right next door -a few meters- from the house (18' door to door to down town Plaza Cataluña) (ONLY rents 30 days or more)

The space

Villa Maria was built for a famous Catalan opera singer in 1900. It has a beautiful garden, spectacular views over Barcelona and is just 20 minutes from the city centre with the Funicular Railway running next few meters from the house.

Villa Maria offers an oasis of calm set in the natural park of Collserolla with incredible views of the city at your feet, particularly suited to individuals and couples who are looking for something different, something greener and away from the tourist hub of the city. Within 50 mts. In the neighborg, there is a full area of services, that includes supermarket, pharmacy, bank atm, etc.

We rent out a spacious rooms in upper floor in the Villa (the property have two floors, each one totally independent). It has tree double bedrooms, one with a bathroom in suite, and another shared bathroom, a full equipped kitchen, a private terrace with views over Barcelona, a big saloon with a fireplace and a sofa-bed, a small place with table to have breakfast, a small office and a garage for cars or motorbikes and 3600m2 garden with balconies and sunbathing spots.

All the rooms have double beds, two of them mezzanine style (i.e. up a ladder, so not suitable for elderly or kids below 5 years old). In two with mezzanine can also accommodates 2 single or double beds on each one; we can also accommodate some place for a baby, for this, I suggest the parents take a room with a bed in mezzanine, so the baby can sleep down.

We are a group of people of various nationalities, speak English, Spanish, French, Dutch and Catalan, and have a peaceful ambience in the house.

The house accommodates 12 people.

Guest access

Interaction with guests

Somos una pequeña comunidad de personas, hablamos inglés, francés, aleman, polaco, castellano y catalán, en un ambiente relajado, silencioso y tranquilo. Normalmente los húespedes desayunan o cenan con nosotros alguna veces durante su estancia. Debido a que la Villa es también home-office, siempre hay alguien de nosotros alli durante el dia para orientarlos o ayudarlos en lo que sea necesario, o simplemente tomar un cafe en el jardín.

Other things to note

The Villa is located in the Collserola mountain, wich is declared Natural Park. If you like walking, you can take long walks around the area, Carretera de Aiguas, one of the most popular routes from which you can walk up Tibidabo, with amazing views of Barcelona, a swamp, the mountain ... the jewel of the crown of Barcelona

Collserola is nature, the kind of nature that brings fresh air to life in the city. The information center is the main host and reference point for visitors, providing basic, practical and general information: places, activities (themed rides, guided walks), transport, services ... The information center is located in "Carretera de l'Església, 92", steps from the villa.

What a great place to stay, just what we were looking for. After some exhausting days we arrived at the villa where we found a beautiful environment to regain fresh energy. Though the location is just a hop away from central Barcelona by public transportation, we first decided to stay in the villa and its awesome garden. Our children also enjoyed very much spending time there, especially with the lovely cat in and around the house. The host is very pleasant and helpful, we´ve enjoyed talking to him. Nearby you´ll find the best home-made ice-cream ever!!! We look forward visiting you again.

We had a great stay in this beautiful place. Alexis was very helpful giving advice for nice walking routes and recommendations. The house is so beautiful and we enjoyed every minute even though our son went sick and we needed to stay around the house for one of the days.

I think the most exciting thing about Alexis' wonderful villa is that we immediately felt welcome and as relaxed as the host himself. What to say without resorting to superlatives..This is the right place to stay if you want to find a beautiful inspiring location and are happy to meet an interesting host who cares enough to share food and wine and stories and ideas. We spent time in the garden which is practically a crime to miss..and all meals were spent on the terrace with a perfect panoramic view of the whole city. Easy to find, with a great walk to Tibidabo and another small stroll to a square with a great local supermarket and bakery. Don't miss this unique location before it transforms into a wonderful home for co-minded forward thinkers.

I loved the natural peace and fresh air at the Villa, overlooking the modern city of Barcelona! Alexis was a gracious and relaxed host who made me very welcome among the resident community. He is sure to steal your heart, so young single ladies be wary; look no further if your seeking a Spanish romance. The Villa is a perfect combination of dilapadation and granduer. I'm extremely grateful to have been included in this space and share in the fresh foods growing in the garden. This is the best way to see Barcelona, from on high, overlooking the twinkling city lights in a star filled sky!

Heloise was there at the gates of Villa Maria the moment we arrived and gave us a tour of the massive garden space just out back. We'd never seen something so extensive and full of character, and the house was just the same! Our floor had a fireplace, tall ceilings, great wide windows and a bed that put us to sleep in seconds. The area was safe to come back to even during later hours, and gave a stunning view of Barcelona in the mornings during breakfast. We didn't get the chance to meet Alexis, but both he and Heloise were easy to reach by text during our stay if we had any questions. Heloise has a very interesting background and was wonderful to talk with over morning coffee. If you're looking for an escape from the hustle of Barcelona, Villa Maria will give you the peace and quiet needed overnight to let you dive back in the next day!
