About our home

Please make sure to review our swap terms below!

Our beautiful, sophisticated yet family (and pet!) friendly apartment was built just last year. Part of a luxury complex with a communal swimming pool (with spectacular sunset views of the Barcelona-area hills), the house is fully-equipped and very pleasant. Three sides of the house open directly onto our private backyard. Everything is on one level, so the house is easy to navigate and manage. We have recommendations for things to do in the area (naturally, going to different beautiful sea spots along Maresme and Costa Brava, horseback riding, hiking, city excursions - there is a direct bus to Barcelona city center which gets you there in 20 minutes!). As we are both expats and work from home our internet is fast and secure and we also have recommendations for babysitters and include a light cleaning a couple of times a week (no dishes or laundry, pending housekeeper's availability).

We have three kids under 6 so there are plenty of extra cribs, high chairs and other kinds of baby/kid-related accessories.

Please note that we provide swappers the same level of attention that we provide traditional paying guests and we have the same terms:

- a 150 EUR contribution towards the cleaning/sheet preparation and check-in must be paid in cash at the time of check-in
- the house needs to be returned in the condition in which it was delivered
- we need to be informed of the total number of guests and any pets at the time of reservation

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

Thanks,

Erica

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Alella is a beautiful, ancient town nestled in the vineyards along the coast of Barcelona (Maresme). It was originally founded along the Via Augusta connecting Rome to Andalusia and until recently was a summer retreat for wealthy Barceloneans. Today, Alella is a small yet sophisticated and vibrant community with the perfect mix of local Catalan traditions and international flair.

The town is known for its wines - there are many great tapas bars and restaurants at all price points in the area. Alella is 2km from the nearest beach (Masnou) and an easy drive from truly spectacular beaches along the Costa Brava. It is also only a 10 minute drive into Barcelona's city center. There is a bus which takes you directly to the center in 20 minutes.

In short, Alella is a perfect base for the traveler who wants a mix of hills, sea and city. We hope to share our home with you soon!
