The Catalunia region
Situated in the north-eastern Iberian peninsula, Catalonia covers an area of 32 000 km2 and has 6 million inhabitants.
History, language and a distinct cultural, political and legal tradition have shaped the personality of the country and the people. Nowadays Catalonia is an autonomous community within Spain with a government of its own known as the Generalitat.
Catalonia is a land of rich and varied scenery and has preserved a rich architectural heritage.
The Catalan Pyrenees, with peaks rising to 3 000 m, run along the northern side of the country and are ideal for skiing, hiking, hunting and fishing,
while perfect conditions for nautical sports are offered by the 580 km of Mediterranean coastline, where the tall cliffs and secluded coves of the Costa Brava and Costa de Garraf alternate with the long sandy beaches of the Costa del Maresme and Costa Daurada and the unique natural environment of the Ebro Delta.
Inland lie many fine cities steeped in character, with magnificent historic building, among them Lleida, Girona, Tortosa, Vic and several others. Barcelona, Catalonia's cosmopolitan capital, is one of the most fascinating cities on the Mediterranean, offering a lively cultural life, good shopping, and many sporting events and facilities.
All these factors, together with an established tradition for fine eating, plentiful accommodation and excellent services and facilities, make Catalonia one of Europe's leading tourist regions.
Barcelona, located at the Mediterranean sea in the very north of the Spanish coast, is certainly the most cosmopolitan and economically most active city in this country. It has always proved its will to be modern, to follow the latest international tendencies or be ahead of them. To the tourist this is evident specially in its architecture, which so well reflects the general approach to life in this always pulsating city.
Barcelona has an old history, and there are monuments of Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance periods or still before, but most characteristic is what has been built during the last, say, 100 years. Barcelona has been a center of Modernist architecture and is distinguished specially by the works of genial Antoní Gaudí, who together with his great contemporaries gave new and exciting looks to it, but has remained since then at the top of modernity.

"Spacious 2BR apartment in good location."
On arrival Modessa gave us a good run down of transport options, things to see and do in Barcelona and provided a couple of useful maps including nearby stores etc. This was very useful for getting orientated.
Spacious clean 2 BR apartment with separate kitchen.. The double-glazing does a good job of minimising road noise. The apartment block backs onto a park with views to Sagrada Familia. This also means the apartment is much brighter than most city apartments we have stayed in. We were on the second floor and the view of the church was blocked by a tree. If you want an unrestricted view, you need to ensure you get one of the higher-level apartments (which were booked out for our stay). There is no elevator but staff will assist with getting luggage up the stairs. The rooftop terrace does have an unrestricted view of the Sagrada Familia as per website photo.
The lounge had 2 sofas and TV with “cable” TV with a few channels in English. The bathroom has a great shower with good hot water and stable water temperature. There is a towel warmer but no bath.
The kitchen is adequately equipped including a toaster but we had no cutting board or teapot. There is a washing machine and an iron and ironing board. No internal clothes rack provided but there are lines off the small balcony off the lounge.
The rooms are pleasantly decorated with prints, furnishings and there are a few books in the living room. One on Gaudi was particularly relevant to sightseeing in Barcelona. (in Spanish but plenty of pictures of Gaudi's works).
There was a notice on the lounge coffee table referring to electricity usage and fee of 1.5 Euros per crockery item broken which I found a bit tacky given the clientele likely to be staying here. If necessary, this would be better included in the contract signed on arrival rather than in the room on the coffee table.
The apartment is close to metro lines 2 and 5, which give good access to sights in Barcelona. A 10-trip ticket costs less than 10 Euros and can be shared so it is an economical way to travel.
The reception desk is attended 9am-2pm and a phone number is given if assistance needed outside these hours.
We made use of the return airport transfer . Whilst not the cheapest option, this was an easy and comfortable way of getting between the airport and apartment. Looking at the metro map it would be possible to do this on the metro with one change if you researched the route ahead of time ( but be alert given the reports of pickpockes).
Overall very good service. Good size well presented apartment in a convenient location near the Sagrada Familia and Metro.

Gaudi's Nest formed the launch pad for our fantastic 6 day visit to Barcelona. The apartment was very well appointed with everything you'd need. Even a welcome bottle of cava. Fantastic wifi… More
