The Catalunia region

Not only is this villa is truly amazing for the indoor and outdoor features, but the location is one of the best points that highlights this property! Villa Barbara is located in Barberá del Vallés, a municipality of Catalunya, part of Barcelona province in Vallés Occidental, also known as “Santa María de Barbará” or just “Barbará”, placed in a valley between Llobregat and Tordera rivers.

This Catalan town was founded as a Roman urbanization that was used as a stop-by place en route to the city of Barcelona, due to the proximity to it, little by little (in middle age) people started building guest houses and inns for travellers to spend the night to continue their way to Barcelona the next day. Currently, Barbera del Valles is a town of over 30,000 inhabitants and it is one of the major cities of the region of Valles Occidental because of its industrial activity.

Barcelona

Among the interesting places to visit in this town, there is the Church of the Romanesque, the oldest district of the city which consists in beautiful houses of English style and last but not least, the Can Gorgs forest, also known as "the lungs of Barbera". It is necessary to mention the culinary richness of the area where visitors can easily find good priced traditional Catalan cuisine anywhere in restaurant or bar in town.

Around this town there are beautiful natural attractions that can be visited any day, such as the Sant Llorenç del Munt National Park (30km away) where there are beautiful green landscapes, lake and perfect places to enjoy the sun during a picnic meal. Just 20km away, you can also find the famous and delicious springs of the beautiful town Caldes de Montbui (20km away), well known for its medicinal properties. Villa Barbara guests will always have easy access to many places for practicing different activities like playing golf (12 km away), visit an equestrian and enjoy a horseback riding or get some riding lessons (10km away) or play tennis on the local tennis courts (1km away from the house!).

Perhaps the best of all the villa's offerings, it is that the magnificent location of this property allows its visitors to be in the tourist centre of Barcelona in just 15 minutes by car and walking the iconic attractions of this beautiful city: Plaça Catalunya, Parc Güell, La Sagrada Familia, Barceloneta, the Rambla, Paseo de Gracia, etc . Also, close to different roads and highways allows guests to be in the most beautiful and stunning Costa Brava beaches in just 1 hour driving! Or visit the incredible and lovely beaches and towns of the Costa Dorada in just a 40 minute drive and also practice water sports or visit the great Port Aventura amusement park.

Villa Barbara is within walking distance of basic services such as supermarkets (1km away), railway station leading directly to Barcelona's city centre (just 200 meters away), which is perfect for travellers without a car or those who prefer not spend time looking for a parking space in the centre of Barcelona), hospital (5km away), bakery, shops and restaurants between 200 and 500 meters away from the house.

"Fabulous spacious villa for a group holiday!"

This place was a fantastic find! We were a nine-person group looking for a car-free vacation around Barcelona, with space for lounging around, and a private pool, at a cost that the students in the group could afford. We got it all!

The location was better than we'd expected; we were a little worried it would feel far out of town, but the proximity to the station, and the frequent trains going right to the city centre made that part really easy. There were also plenty of good shops and supermarkets about 10 mins' walk away, and a well-equipped kitchen, so we cooked up great meals for ourselves most evenings. The neighbourhood was quiet and calm, and it didn't feel at all unsafe to walk back from the station after an evening out in the city centre.

The living space was perfect for a nine-person group, with several indoor and outdoor areas so we didn't all have to feel crammed together all the time, but could equally all get together when we wanted to, and share a meal at either the larger dining table or the big table outside, both if which seated us all comfortably. We really loved the pool, which was properly deep (more than 1.8m) at the far end, with very clear water.

Beds were comfortable and bedrooms and linens were all nice and clean. With three separate showering spaces and toilets, there wasn't too much waiting around. The spiral staircase up to the top floor rooms is probably a bit tight for infirm people or young kids, but was fine for the bunch of twenty-somethings we put up there! Having a glass door between the big bedroom and its en suite was weird for sharers, though -- we'd have appreciated a curtain!

The management of the property was also a big plus: they replied to questions by email incredibly quickly all along, and the one time I was concerned there might be a problem, they sent someone out to look at it within a few hours.

A couple of negatives, in the interest of giving a balanced review: the WiFi was very slow (not broadband), and we couldn't find a DVD remote. There was also no kettle, and very few decent-sized mugs (though plenty of smaller teacup things). On the plus side, there was a very responsive induction hob, so boiling water wasn't an issue! Really, the biggest problem we had with the place was having to leave it after our week was up.

Thank you for your kind words and comments. As an agency who specialises in family villa rentals (with gardens and private pools!) in Catalonia (Barcelona, Costa Brava and Costa Dorada) we take your feedback and suggestions very seriously and continually aim to improve our services.

The WIFI in this villa is 3G-based and sometimes can be a bit slow depending on how many devices are connected. We recommend that a maximum of two devices be connected at one time. We will immediately ensure that a kettle and large mugs are available in the kitchen.

We look forward to welcoming you again soon to this beautiful area!

Kind regards,

The Catalunya Casas Team!

"Great and Manager was very accomodating"

A wonderful trip was had by all for our stay for a wedding. The Managing company couldn't help enough to plan our trip and can arrange entertainment as well! A great area - still super warm in October. A wonderful house - was clean. You need to buy your own food etc but most utensils were there. Would ask for more linen next time!

thanks!!!
