we just had such an special weekend while staying at sean's family house.
this place is magic, warm and with an arty vibe. Well decorated, don't expect luxury, expect style.
the views from each of its room is delightful.
Sean and his parents were the kind of people you would expect to own the house. Friendly, helpful and welcoming.
It's a place to disconnect and isolate yourself from society, perfect for a small group of friends or for artists to create and get (website hidden): Juan Enrique told us Christian Dior was not born here... But his right hand, designer frederic castet, was.
the village is really small (it may have about 15 houses and less than 500 inhabitants?)
and it becomes specially charming at night.
We are Going back for sure!
Thanks for your comments! precious coming from someone like you.
It was a pleasure to meet you all. You will always be welcome.
Wish you all the best!!!
This is a beautiful, well equipped property in a tremendous location. Transport is super easy but walking also possible. Sean and his family are terrific. They were helpful and welcoming. We were there over New Year and they included us as if we were family. Also helped with advice on what to do both NY and other times. And what a great city. Recommend for sure!
Thank you so much for your comments. Wish you all the best!!!
Si piensas que la vida también consiste en crear recuerdos, esta casa es el lugar adecuado. Sencillamente perfecto.
Sean es agradable, detallista y relajado. Es como es su familia: buena gente.
Merece la pena ir, aunque la única pena sea marcharse.
Muchas gracias... Por tus comentarios tan perspicaces y sencillamente por ser como eres... educado, agradecido y tan buen rollo...
Sean was a great host, came to collect us and took us back to the amazing apartment. The neighbourhood (Gracia) was great, not too touristy, many independent shops and right above a Metro stop. The flat is extraordinary, it has beautiful features and is furnished in a loving way, we felt at home instantly. The Entrance to the place is stunning and well maintained, it's hard not to feel special when on the amazing staircase…The hosts were great and not too far away should there be anything you need. We loved it!
Many thanks. It's great to meet people like you. All the best!
Wow, where to start?!? This flat was gorgeous beyond words! It kind of feels like you're staying in living artwork.
The Carbonells make you feel instantly at home and it was really more like staying with dear, old friends than anything else. Sean met me at the door and helped me with my bags (which was quite the endeavor as I was making a 3 1/2 week tour of Europe and there were quite a few rather heavy bags). He gave me a full tour of the flat and gardens and told me about the history of the building and the flat (did you know that the adjoining apartment where the Carbonells live is the Mother's flat in the film "All About My Mother" (website hidden)_WNLxW9X3P1o/TUbyQPMJ8nI/AAAAAAAABUY/8zF4N5noCZY/s1600/6766073_gal.jpg). Sean even had some delicious snacks for me in the kitchen in case I was hungry!
The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. There's a lovely balcony overlooking the main road that allows for great people watching while enjoying some delicious Spanish wine and tapas. The living area is huge. The kitchen and bathroom are perfect.
I was spending a weekend in Barcelona by myself after having been there for work during the week. The space was rather large for just one person but would be perfect for larger group. I'm a bit of an extrovert so I was worried about being bored and lonely but the first night I was invited by Sean and his cousins to go see some Flamenco and enjoy traditional Spanish tapas. We had a blast and I felt perfectly at home!
On the last day of my stay, Sean even drove me to the airport and helped me get my massive amount of luggage situated. Such above and beyond service all around.
I'll be staying here on any future stays to Barcelona as well :).
Thanks´ for your comments. Wish you all the best.
Sean was wonderful! He helped us with luggage, acclimating to the apartment and neighborhood, and made the stay very easy. We were greeted by his family and he had some typical Catalan foods waiting for us to enjoy at our leisure. The property is on the edge of the Gracia neighborhood which has a lot of restaurants and shops (lovely shop right in the building for bread and coffee). The metro is literally right outside of the building making the whole city easy to access for very little money. The apartment is stunning, grand in scale with eclectic style and many architectural details, art, and library - like staying in a palace with absolutely everything we needed. We loved it and would happily return.
His family by the way, is so gracious and interesting! LOVED IT!
My friends and I spent 5 nights. The apartment is fantastic and spacial. It is located in a Catalan style building with both nice facade and interior. There is a stairs directly leads to the 2nd floor, where the owners live and the flat is. The interior and decoration of the flat is tasteful. The metro is just at the front gate, with cafe and restaurant. On the way to Park Guell you can find a lot of supermarkets, and there are many restaurants in the neighborhood as well, the distinct is called Gracia, if I am not wrong. There are a lot to see and to do, to feel and to taste in Barcelona. Next time I wish I can come and stay for a month. 真的非常赞！比照片还赞！位于一栋加泰罗尼亚风格的建筑，不输米拉之家。有历史的豪宅，绝对超值。室内美轮美奂，还可以进到房东几百平的后花园，有一个小小的游泳池，五只猫。所在街区也非常好，很有生活气息。地铁上盖。离米拉之家两站，巴特罗三站，步行到古埃尔公园。门口的广场很有设计感，这就是巴塞罗那。希望下次可以来住上一个月！
Wir hatten wunderbare Tage in Barcelona. In dem Appartement fühlten wir uns so wohl, dass wir viel Zeit dort verbrachten, da es einfach zum Verweilen einlädt! Sei es ein Glas Rotwein in der Küche oder Frühstück in dem kleinen "Wintergarten"
Sean uns seine Eltern haben uns viel über das Haus erzählt und uns gute Tipps gegeben.
Wir kommen gerne wieder:)
Thanks a lot:))))
A truly wonderful place to stay. This apartment is as beautiful as the pictures, and the Carbonell family were tremendous hosts.
If you want to stay in a unique and historic flat, right next to the metro, with friendly and caring hosts, this is the place.
Fabulous accommodations not to mention the hosts! Warm, hospitable, accommodating, interesting and extremely kind and generous! Location great with metro right out the front door. 5 out of 5 stars!

Sean's flat is just amazing. One of the rooms seems to come from the 1001 nights. The others are great examples of well conserved architecture. It's the kind of places that could easily be turned into a museum! I don't think there are many other places like that in Barcelona.
And Sean is an amazing host, as an architect, he's able to walk you through the place explaining its history as well as great details about the flat's structure, architecture and details.
Last but not least, it's always fun to share a bier or a dinner with him!
