About this listing
Sunny and quiet penthouse with spacious terrace looking upon views of Barcelona. Situated in the trendy center of Barcelona, the Born district, with lots of restaurants, bars, and art galleries right at your door.
The Ciutadela park is just around the corner and the beach is a 10 min. walk. !! The flat is located in a quiet street and is at a walking distance from all of the main central attractions of Barcelona. Two metro stations ("Arc de Triomf" and "Jaume I") and the Estacion de Françia railway station are a few minutes away from the flat and will easily connect you with the rest of the city and its suburbs.
The apartment is loft-type with lots of light coming in from the terrace windows. It is made up of one double bedroom, washroom (with bathtub), equipped kitchen, living room and study room. It accomodates 4 people:there are two double beds (a "real" bed and a sofa-bed).
The terrace is a great plus on hot summer nights! Perfect for dining outside or just chilling out while looking at the stars!
FOR THE MONTH OF AUGUST I AM RENTING FOR A MINIMUM OF 2 WEEKS!!!
There are no special rules beyond plain common sense! Basically, take care of what you find in the house, as this is not just a rental flat, but where I normally live. Be prepared to pay for anything you break (hopefully not). Do not invite strangers in the house and try not to make too much noise after midnight in order not to cause nuisance to the neighbours.

A Great flat in a great neighbourhood with a wonderful view over the old town of born. Raffallea was a very welcoming uncomplicated host. Thanks a lot.
we had a wonderful experience staying in Rafaella apartment. we stayed there for 6 nights.
the location is excellent, close to many sights including the park and the beach. for morning exercise you can step out and go to the park or go to the beach by foot without having to take any train.
it is also very close to the train station and the neighborhood is very safe so you can stay out late and come back anytime.
the house itself is very cozy and comfortable and it is in a very old building and we liked the apartment design and how it looked like and the staircase itself had vintage design.
it was rather cold when were there so we did not use the terrace but im sure if it was summer we would use the terrace every day. another thing about the apartment is that since its few floors up it is very quiet so you can relax and sleep very well when get back home.
the kitchen is also very equipped and we made breakfast every day there and since there are many supermarkets around the corner we were able to do grocery and prepare homemade breakfast before heading out to visit tourist spots.
there are also very good dining options less than 5 mins walk from the house and they are all open till late night.
Rafaella was very responsive as well and she would get back to us if we had a question. overall we highly recommend this place and the hostess and we would stay here if we visit BCN again soon.
Nous avons passé un agreable sejour chez Raffaella qui nous a tres bien accueillies a notre arrivée. Elle a toujours été disponible dans nos echanges. Son appartement est fidèle aux photos, la litterie est bonne. Il est tres bien situé pour profiter pleinement de Barcelone. Nous y retournerons certainement.
Raffaela is a great hostess and her home is a wonderful place to stay! Even more beautiful and cosy than in the pictures. The location is exdellent, close to many sights and quiet though in a lively neigbourhood. The terrace is a great benefit to return to after spending time in busy Barcelona or to enjoy your morning tea or coffee. Raffaela's attention to detail added a special quality to our stay which we enjoyed very much. Definitely worth more than five stars.
Raffaella is really kind and always available. The apartment is perfect, beautiful, in a nice aera with an awesome terrasse!
I really want to come back in this app if i go another time in Barcelona.
