Self-catering and Barcelona apartments for yours holiday in Barcelona

Barcelona is one of the world's greatest cities for anyone to visit. By choosing self-catering vacation rentals in this vibrant heart of Spain's Catalonia region, you will find yourself living like a real Spaniard within hours of your arrival. Attractions in Barcelona are so many that it's perfect for a short break, for the school holidays or for a longer summer holiday. You will certainly not run out of activities. Your holiday rentals might be just a short walk from one of the city's most impressive sights, the famous Sagrada Familia cathedral, begun late in the 1800s and still unfinished. Will it ever be complete? Take your family for a walk around and decide for yourself. Antoni Gaudi is the greatest architect of Barcelona and his style is unique. Take yourself on a walking tour of his finest buildings. You'll find that many of them are open to visitors and you can experience the organic, swirling shapes that he made his own. For group activities or for family outings, Gaudi's Parc Guell is like entering a fantasy land. This is architecture at its most inventive, and all an easy walk from your vacation rentals. A perfect family activity is a visit to the amusement park at Mount Tibidado, with its view over this most beautiful of Spanish cities. One ideal group activity is to hire bicycles and take yourself around the streets, with a surprise on every corner, and a relaxing stop at a typical Spanish cafe. Barcelona has been named as the number one city in the world for its beaches. Just take a walk down with a picnic from your self-catering rentals and you'll find out why. The boardwalk takes in some of the finest, and you can pick out your place on the sand. This is Spain, so there are festivals throughout the year, and there is nothing like a fiesta to bring the true spirit of Spain to your self-catering vacation. There's La Merce, in September, with huge home-made figures in the city's streets. In contrast, the annual Sonar Festival brings the world's greatest pop bands to Barcelona, for those who enjoy the latest sounds. And then you return home, to your choice of vacation rentals from these extraordinary festivals.

Holiday lettings in Barcelona for your short break

For your self-catering vacation rentals in the heart of Barcelona, there's a wide choice of city-centre apartments. This is Barcelona life with the heartbeat of the city on your doorstep, the excitement of one of the world's greatest cities to enjoy every day. Choose a large apartment with its own roof terrace in the fashionable Borne district for your larger group and live in real Spanish style. Treat yourself to produce from the local markets or tapas at the restaurant nearby and your short break becomes an extraordinary experience. Or a luxury penthouse where you can sunbathe in private before an evening out, Barcelona style, to the late bars and restaurant. Vacation rentals can also be found in what Barcelona’s Olympic Village, beautifully built was and just a five minute walk from the beach. These are holiday rentals that you will make your own from the moment you arrive. Nearby, in the beach resort of Sitges, you'll find local cottages that could easily match your style. The highly-efficient railway system means that you have the best of all worlds, because you can be in Barcelona so easily for a day's attractions, before returning home to your beach hideaway. Sitges boasts large villas too, for stylish group getaway vacation rentals, some with their own pool, in addition to these resorts famous beaches. But if central Barcelona is a must for your short break, then what could be more ideal for your vacation rentals than a modern condo? You'll find air-conditioning for the heat of the summer months and be perfectly-placed for the delights of this great Spanish city.

The best time to enjoy Barcelona

Every season is the perfect one in Barcelona. If you choose summer, then the beaches will be the place to go. Take the family down from your self-catering vacation rentals early in the morning and find your place on the sand on your choice of the many beaches. Live like a Spaniard and take a siesta. Enjoy the late afternoon sunshine and a stroll through the Raval, the happening cultural centre of Barcelona, which now boasts the city's finest modern art museum, all a stroll from your city-centre vacation rentals. Spring and autumn bring a temperate climate. And you'll find it is warm enough for a swim in the Mediterranean. Or take the cable car across to Montjuic, home of an Olympic swimming pool with an astonishing view. Take your swimming things, and you too can be an Olympian. Also on Montjuic, there are the glories of the museum of the Miro Foundation, and the mysterious works of this great artist. This is a visit to intrigue the whole family. What do his astonishing works mean? Something to contemplate as you return in the evening to your holiday rentals. Vacation rentals in winter-time means being truly in the home of the Spaniards. There is always the warmth of the Spanish welcome, and the weather is never cold. You’ll find so much to enjoy at this time of the year. One thing to look forward to during your short break is a famous festival throughout December. You can buy figures for your very own nativity scene from the cathedrals to take back to your holiday rentals; once again you will feel like you're a local, not a visitor. And winter is a time that Gaudi's architecture becomes still more mysterious as you're there without the crowds. Like the Spanish people themselves, you can celebrate your Christmas on Christmas Eve in your vacation rentals. What could be more romantic? Self-catering becomes a luxury and you'll leave your holiday rentals with some of this astonishing city forever in your heart. And you can book your vacation rentals in Barcelona safely and securely with Owners Direct.
