Guestbook comments from the manager

"The flat exceeded expectations.......Superb location"

"We had a wonderful time- thank you for the use of of your beautiful


"....the flat is lovely- a real haven of peace in this busy city. I will

definitely recommend it..."

We had a wonderful stay here in Barcelona- much enhanced by the superb apartment and all the help and advice from Lynda & Rachel (even helping us to find a doctor when needed!)

Many thanks again

Just wanted to drop you a quick e-mail to say we had an absolutely fantastic time in Barcelona and your flat was amazing. We met Lynda (who was great) who showed us round the flat which was just so spacious and gorgeous.

We absolutely fell in love with the tiled floors and wooden shutters and it had everything and more that we needed. The kids DVDs and toys were brilliant and the cool, dark bedrooms meant that they slept really well and we all got plenty of lie-ins,bliss!

We stayed here for five days last Summer. The location is perfect for getting around Barcelona and is a very upmarket part of the city.

There are excellent cafes nearby for breakfast and an extremely busy Tapas restaurant nearby which we used twice.. It was extremely popular every day, so you would ask for a table, go back to the flat, then return 45 minutes later and usually not have long to wait after that. The food was excellent and inexpensive.

There is an Underground station nearby and also we made full use of the bus services. If you haven't been to Barcelona before, it is a great city, which also has the advantage of nice beaches. I can thoroughly recommend both Barcelona and this apartment. The owner is very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. We would definitely stay here again.

Lovely spacious flat

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at the apartment. It's in a great central location, yet it's so spacious inside. The kids settled in immediately, and we really enjoyed the back terrace.

The only flaw is the rumble of the underground which passes quite nearby, but we got used to it pretty quickly and it didn't spoil our time there at all.

A real home from home.

Great city centre family apartment

  • 5 of 5

Loved the high ceilings and tiled floors and small garden at the back. The apartment was clean and well furnished. Owner very helpful in providing information and responding to questions before we arrived. Children (aged 11 and 13) delighted to have their own rooms. Plenty of space for more than a family of four. Brilliant location for shopping/restaurants in Passeo de Gracia area and next to Provenca metro station for trips to city sightseeing and the beach. Walking distance to Gaudi Casa Mila and Casa Batllo. Have already recommended to family/friends for city break.

From the Owner

We bought the flat 8 years ago, it was in it´s original state and we spent over a year renovating it. We love the location - walking out the door and being in the centre of Barcelona. We stayed in lots of flats in Barcelona but they weren´t child friendly or didn´t provide any basics such as washing up liquid or tea towels so we bought this one and try to make it easy as possible for guests staying with kitchen basics, guide books, toys and DVDs.
