About this listing
perfect place to relax and enjoy the terrace with friends or family. the neighbourhood is the only one kids play on the street. it's totally against cars. few streets can cross the whole area. very pedestrian and human scaled.
This flat is an atelier converted into a residence. its on the floor level with a lovely backyard which is my favorite place in the house.
the neighborhood is central but fortunately there's no much tourists. its the most charming and residential "barrio" of barcelona. lots of bars, cinema, day and nightlife. 15 minutes walking to the wonders of gaudi, as to sagrada familia, la pedrera, or parc guell.
you know, its the opposite of staying in a noisy and overcrowded area. ask your friends that stood near las ramblas, and you know what i'm talking. this is a very catalan kind of area.
there's a lot of squares where the famous tapa restaurants dispose their tables at the open air. locals come to gràcia to have some drinks with friends and also have some ethnical dinner, because there's a bunch of restaurants from all over the world. for instance, there is an ethiopian, lebanese and a brazilian in my own street; and some greek close by, also tibetan, thai, portuguese, vietnamese, catalan of course, japanese,...you name it.
well, i can help you with that. after all we can agree that
sometimes a local's advice is better than a cold guidebook.
i wish you enjoy your stay and that i can be useful in this amazing town.
if you're interested in meditation, you can join me, free of charge, every monday, wednesday and thursday at our buddhist center, 15 mins walking distance.
the house is all yours. my things are in the wardrobe and shelves.
