Lovely attic apartment (no elevator, but you get used to it) in great central area of Barcelona, five minute walk from Gaudí architecture and central boulevard, but surrounded by shops and authentic neighborhood of Gràcia. Three bedrooms, sleeps five, with extra pullout sofa. Lots of light, beautiful terrace, views of Tibidabo. Unlimited Internet, flat screen TV, DVD.
Gràcia is an authentic, centrally located neighborhood just above the main Eixample area of Barcelona. It is close enough to be convenient and yet it is not so full of tourists as the better known Rambles area. It is very safe, full of restaurants and cafes, movie theaters and small shops, smaller buildings and narrow streets. We love it and we are sure you will too!
A five minute walk brings you to one of Gaudí's most famous buildings: La Pedrera. Gràcia is also the home of one of Gaudí's most beautiful but least known buildings, on Carrer Carolines. It's definitely worth a visit.
