About this listing
Are you looking to experience the real Barcelona, not just the one found in tourist guides? Our family apartment will soon make you feel at home.
Our spacious, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment has recently been renovated to a very high standard. With an open plan living space suitable for entertaining up to 6 people, we have also had the kitchen replaced and created a separate breakfast bar area for informal eating. Our living room is very bright and spacious, which makes a great space for relaxing.
The large kitchen has a gas cooker, large fridge and freezer, dishwasher and wine fridge (we offer a wide range of local wines from our wine fridge). Fabio and I love cooking and entertaining friends so our kitchen caters for cooking lovers. There are plenty of cupboards to be filled with everything you need to cook whatever takes you fancy.
There are 3 bedrooms:
Master bedroom: with a double bed and a balcony.
2nd bedroom: with bunk beds and a balcony
3rd bedroom: with 2 individual beds.
We also have 2 bathrooms: one with a large bathtub and shower over the tub, and another one with a standing shower.
Linen and towels are included in the price.
Interaction with Guests
Most of the time we are away, but our friends in the city will be very happy to welcome you and show you the best way to enjoy your time.
Just 5 minutes walk far from the FIRA (where major exhibitions take place) and Monjuich Mountain Museums (Miró, Caixa Forum, MNAC). You can also take the bus or metro (just 1 minute away) and you will be in Plaza Cataluña in less than 4 stops. The coast and beaches are also a short bus ride or 15 minute walk.
It’s a great location for food lovers. We are a 5 minute walk from a huge indoor foodm, Sant Antoni Market, selling the best that Spain has to offer in seasonal produce. It takes 90 minutes to walk round it browsing. We buy most of our fresh produce here, fish, meat, fruit, vegetables, pulses and more. If you want a break from shopping, stop for a glass of cava and a small bite at one of the many cafes in the market. As well as being a great place to cook, it’s a great location for eating out.
The apartment is in the heart of a neighbourhood where the best TAPAS bars are located (Tickets and Bodega 1900 by Ferran Adria, Lolita, Bohemic, Casa Lucio, Federal Cafe and the recently opened Pakta).
Other Things to Note
We have kids, so we can offer you a high-chair or a cot if you need it, and plenty of child friendly cutlery.
If you wish to taste at home divine local dishes cooked specially for you, we can suggest you a local friend that will cater for you and family.
Cleaning and baby sitting services can be provided upon request.
Our home is your home, so look after it like if it would be yours!
No partying and no noise in late night hours. Our building is calm and family oriented, and we like to respect that.
Feel free to contact us if you want to know more about our flat.
We were welcomed by Sara's friend Eva, who showed us the place.
It is a great, big place with a lot of appliances and you will most likely find everything you need in the kitchen.
The location is also great the two different Metro lines close and a bunch of great restaurants literally right around the corner.
This would have been a fantastic experience if it wasn't for all the dirty spots around the apartment.
I don't think Sara and her husband live in the apartment (at least very often) and might not be aware, but the place really needs a good cleaning.
It was a little distracting and definitely took away some of the charm of the apartment, but besides that it really is a beautiful place and a great location.
We were greeted by a friend of the host who was lovely - friendly and helpful.
A fantastic apartment in a great neighbourhood, lots of great bars and cafes close by and with the metro less than 100 metres away getting around the city was so easy. Sara is great at keeping in touch before arrival, and Camille was made us feel very welcome after a day travelling. I'd definitely recommend staying in Sara's apartment for both families and couples, an all round excellent experience!
We just spent 4 days in Barcelona and stayed at Sara's appartment. Camille was already waiting for us when we arrived and we could check in right away. The flat was in an excellent shape, very clean and well arranged. It looks just like in the pictures. Our son loved the bunk bed and our bed was very comfortable as well. Everything is newly renovated and you feel like in a nice hotel Suite. The kitchen has everything you need. Just outside the door you find great tapas bars and cafés where you will find mostly locals which we appreciated. Just in 15 minutes you are in the old town and in another 30 minutes in Barceloneta Beach. Perfect for us. We recommend this flat highly.
Sara's apartment was clean and located very conveniently next to a metro station. Her friend Camille checked us in and was very friendly and helpful! Thanks for a great stay!
The time we spent at Gastronomic flat was great!
The place was clean, well designed and comfortable for our needs.
the flat is situated at a good area, and the welcome and service were excellent with the host of Camile.
Thank's a lot!
We had great time at Sara's lovely flat. Sara and Camille were very helpful and changed our leaving date at short notice because our flight was cancelled. Sara arranged for her friend to cook and deliver to us a traditional 2 course meal for 20 Euros each which we really enjoyed. The flat is really stylish and spacious. Sara's recommendations and guide book is really useful . There are some excellent restaurants nearby, we wish we could have tried more of them but we didn't have enough time ! We would definitely recommend it for a family holiday.
