Hi, we are Ana and Carlos, a couple 32 years old from Barcelona (Spain). In 2005 we started exchanging apartments with people around the world. Our first experience was a 3 month travel to New York City doing three different swaps. Were happy times and we decided to continue doing apartment exchanges every year. Since then we have visited San Francisco, Stockholm, Copenhaguen and Berlin. Now, we can’t think other way to travel. We enjoy living the cities as locals.
We always try to make our guests comfortable. We offer advice about places to visit in Barcelona to avoid the tipical touristic visit.
We have our holiday schedule open to any season and place in the world. So please, drop us a few lines even if it’s just to say hi and let’s stay in touch.
Gràcia is our neighborhood. A young and bohemian district with a very lively nightlife. Somewhere I read that Gracia is like New York’s East Village.
It’s a district full of restaurants, bars, cinemas, theaters and more. It’s close enough to all touristic spots (even you can walk to Park Güell or the Sagrada Familia) but far enough to avoid touristic crowds.
The more characteristic thing about the neighborhood is it’s squares. It’s full of small and charming squares with bars and terrazas to have a drink or a lunch.
We are Carlos, Ana and Darío (16 months old baby). We are both professional and 32 years old. I’m marketing consultant and I started my own consultancy firm one year ago. My wife works in a N.G.O. (non-governmental organization). Darío plays full time ;-)
