Two double bedrooms, one with ensuite, both with balconies. One single room or office. Second bathroom (both bathrooms have a full sized bath and shower (in the bath).
The apartment is located in the upmarket suburb of Gracia just 10 minutes walk into the centre and extremely well located for seeing all Gaudi's works. Gracia is a charming area in its own right with over ten small village squares, restaurants and cafés and an English language/ foreign films cinema. For large family bookings we will also allow use of the sofa bed, but group bookings or all male or all female bookings are not accepted if there are more than two of you: especially no hen or stag or football parties - or pets! The property is on the first floor and has central heating and double-glazing and shutters.
Grácia was once a village and town in its own right but was swallowed up by Barcelona in the city's modernist era just over a hundred years ago. Barcelona's Champs Elysée is called Passeig de Gracia and this was the street connecting the medieval Barcelona with medieval Gracia. Now Passeig de Gracia is Barcelona's most central avenue and the location for Gaudi's most famous buildings and designer shopping - just a 10 minute walk from the apartment. Gracia itself has all the restaurants, shops, cafés and bars you could wish for in the evening and is a much more upmarket and less touristy alternative to the Barrí Gòtic. Within walking distance from the apartment: Gaudi's works: Sagrada Familia, La Padrera, Casa Battló, Parc Guell. Designer shopping on Pg de Gracia and Diagonal, all of the Example’s galleries Barrí Gòtic. By public transport: Montjuic, the beach, rest of city.
