Our home is in a traditional and renovated building, a high floor with elevator. The furniture is rustic and there is not tv. It has two bedrooms but in the smaller one I will leave my things so you can use the place feeling confortable. The kitchen is modern and integrated. The living room is a big space with a small balcony and a big window. There is a lot of light. I am sure you will feel good on it.
Gracia, the neighbourhood where my home is (from wikipedia)... it is one of the hippest, most cosmopolitan areas in the city, close-packed streets and predominately low-rise, Mediterranean architecture give it a distinct feel. Its old, one-way streets are organized around a series of plazas.
Compared to the other classic Barcelona neighbourhoods, Ciutat Vella and the rest of the old city, Gràcia is relatively void of major tourist attractions, a veritable blessing for the bohemian enclave of Catalonian urban life. There aren't many international brands or fast-food chains; instead, small gourmet street food outposts are common, as well as ethnic cuisines, from Japanese to Greek. Ubiquitous as well are the bountiful small cafes serving classic Spanish tapas and Catalonian specialties. Shopping abounds in funky mum'n’dad shops selling stylish trinkets and vintage clothing. Talented artisans and artists can be found in the squares and in small ground floor shops.
Nightlife in Gràcia is dominated by Spanish café culture, with an abundance of small bars and restaurants that host late-night revelry and long conversations. At the weekends, one might hear any number of local live music acts, from a single guitarist to a four-piece band.
Several historic sites in Gràcia enhance its eclectic charm. For instance, The park Guel and Casa Vicens, designed by Antoni Gaudí, the famous Catalan modernist architect, are two of the neighborhood’s main attractions.
Our place is located from only 3 minutes of a metro line.
