Our nicely decorated and sunny flat is the perfect option for couples looking for a quiet, comfy stay while visiting the exciting, buzzy Barcelona. Located in the Guinardó neighbourhood –a short walk from the old-fashioned and lovely Gràcia–, Maria & Roger's place will embrace you with its retro décor, stunning daylight and the warm and friendly feeling of a truly catalan neighbourhood.
If you check on Google Maps you'll see we're 10 minutes away from Park Güell and others like Park del Guinardó and Park de les Aigües. This is a green spot to be enjoyed –no city center traffic jams and pollution here–, meaning you can have a brunch on our balcony while sightseeing the city: both the mountains and the sea!
Our metro station is Alfons X –Line 4, yellow– and you can get from our peaceful flat to were the action is in less than 20 minutes: Passeig de Gràcia - Plaça Catalunya. Add 5 minutes are you're on the beach, at Barceloneta! All through the same metro line.
Oh! Did we mention that Sagrada Familia is pretty close too? Yup, just a lovely walk from where we are and you'll be ready to get into Antoni Gaudi's masterpiece. Another astonishing modernist building, Hospital de Santa Creu i Sant Pau, by Domènec i Muntaner architect, is nearby.
We're a married couple who enjoy exploring the hottest foodie spots but also know the catalan / spanish hidden gems, so expect a must-visit gastrolist waiting for you upon arrival. Maria works as a jewelry designer –check her brand at www.mavahaze.com– and Roger works in advertising but also writes for several music mags –check his writings here www.rogerestrada.net–: we'll recommend you the coolest fashion and record stores as well.
PS: We have one bedroom but if you're travelling with your kid our sofa is open for his comfy rest for sure. ;-)
