Good location (city center at 10 minutes walking, beach at 20 minutes biking). I have 2 bikes you could use to move around the city. Access to local transportation is extremely close. The apt is set back from the street, so is very quiet, but the neighbour (Gracia) is very animated and has several attractions.
The apt is nice and cozy, I've been living there for 2 years and I think it's a good one :)
The neighborhood is called Gracia and there's lots of things to do (bars, terraces, restaurants -all kind of food, concerts, design and second hand shops, galleries, good cinemas ... ). In August 15th-22nd there's a great celebration in the streets, people of all around come to see the decoration of the streets. (You can check the following link to see it http://www.festamajordegracia.cat/album/carrers-guarnits-2007).
Many young people moved to this neighborhood recently. It's an animated area and it's fantastic to go for a walk around the little squares and pedestrian streets.
I'm a musician (woman). I swapped before and I enjoyed it so much. I'm always carefull with other people's apts and things, and I want to exchange places with somebody who take care of my things too..
Looking forward to travel and discover new places!
I speak english, spanish and catalan.
