About This Listing
Beautiful, cozy apartment in the Barcelona area of Gracia. Gracia is quickly becoming one of the best areas in Barcelona with a laid back, local feeling. Full of great bars, vintage boutiques, and a variety of restaurants Gracia is a popular area with students as well as travelers looking for something different from the touristy center of Barcelona.
The apartment is located in a quiet zone about a 10 minutes walk from the main street in Gracia, Calle Verdi. It is a 5 minute walk to the metro Joanic (yellow line) and is around the corner from supermarkets and one of the local Gracia markets. You can easily walk to Gaudi´s Parc Guell, and the famous Sagrada Familia is only 15 minutes away on foot.
The apartment has two bedrooms, one with an on suite bathroom with a toilet, sink and shower. The living room overlooks the large terrace which gets full sunlight almost all day long and is completely private. The smaller bedroom has a double bed, and a small chest of drawers. There is another separate bathroom with sink, shower and toilet.
All of the usual amenities are included; kettle, microwave, oven, toaster, wireless internet, etc.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch with me with any questions!

Interaction with Guests
As much as they like! I always invite my guests to a free mojito at one of my two bars that I own in Gracia :)
Great quiet, local area, so close to all tourist sites without living in an over populated tourist trap. Gracia is were you get to see how the Catalans live!
Easy and full access to all types of public transport, and only a few metro stops from city center and beach.
Other Things to Note
I am an avid traveller myself and use airbnb on a frequent basis so I understand the importance of feeling comfortable with where you are staying.
I aim to do all that I can so that my guests have a truly great experience in BCN by living in a non touristy, truly catalan part of the town. I look for guests that come with the intention of respecting the city, its cultural, its people and most of having a fabulous time in this incredible city that I have made my home for the last 10 years :)
Smoking outside on the terrace only please. No loud parties although dinners on the terrace are fine...that's what it's for!
I do my best to accommodate your preferred check in and check out times, as long as there isn´t someone coming into the flat after you then I´m very flexible so just ask!
We really enjoyed staying in this lovely apartment in a fantastic location.
We're big fans of the Gracia area. Its really got its own identity in Barcelona.
Carla's apartment is handy for loads of excellent bars and restaurants but is really quiet. The roof terrace is a lovely haven to enjoy after exploring the city.
The apartment is really clean and stocked with whatever you would need. Some of the décor is looking a little tired, but this didn't bother us at all. You certainly can't complain for the amazing price we paid for such a wonderful place to stay.
We'd definitely look to stay here again, next time we're back in Barcelona.
Appartement fort agréable pour toute la famille. Terrasse appréciable pour le petit-déj et le soir, y compris pour les enfants y jouer.
Le logement est bien situé, près de Gracia et ses bars/magasins, de la Sagrada familia et de l'Hospital Sant Pau (15 mn à pied).
Bien relié par métro et bus (3 lignes à proximité immédiate : 39 pour Barceloneta, 55 pour Catalunya / Parc de Montjuic et 92 pour le Parc Güell).
Adresse fortement recommandée.
Excellent séjour chez Carla! L'appartement est très bien situé 10 mn à pied de la Sagrada Familia mais également très proche du métro. L'appartement était assez grand et bien équipé même pour une famille de 4 personnes. Il est possible de joindre Carla très facilement et la réponse est toujours très rapide. Nous avons mangé dans son bar Avenue bar c'était très chouette. Carla : merci beaucoup pour ce séjour Danielle David Heloise et Arthur
Lovely apartment, in a very quiet neighbourhood. Located a bit far from the city centre, but close to a metro station so it worked out alright. Wish we had more time to spend in the beautiful terrace! Hot water was a bit of problem though, turned cold after 3 ppl showered. Kitchen was nicely well-equipped. Carla was extremely helpful, she helped us in storing our luggages 3 minutes after we texted her. Thank you for the great stay, it's definitely recommended!
Carla's apartment is in a great location - a short walk to buzzing bars and restaurants and to Parc Guell. The apartment is quiet and as expected from the photos. Check in and out was efficient. It was a good size for our family (two young kids) and the outdoor terrace would be good in warm weather. There were pictures and books which gave it a homely feel. The bed in the main bedroom was comfortable. If you're a big person you might find the shower a bit of a squeeze.
Carla was great during our stay! Her place was very nice and the terrace was great! The place had everything we needed and the neighborhood was very nice. We stopped by her bar(which is also great) and although we didn't see her much she was easy to get in contact with. Overall very nice place and Barcelona is a great place.
Thanks a million Carla
