In the cosy quarter Grácia you find this very modern luminous apartment. There is a French balcony in the living room facing the square, and the entire roof is made into a huge roof-terrace, sun beds, parasols and outside dining areas, perfect after an eventful day in Barcelona. A very different experience than a hotel.

When you enter the apartment, you get into the luminous living room with a view to the square. There is a sofa corner with a plasma TV, and the apartment has WIFI internet. In the other end of this common room, close to the kitchen, there is a dining table. The sofa can be turn out to a double bed, extending the capacity to 8 persons.

The ample and beautiful kitchen in red colours, which gives life to the place, is fully equipped with last generation electrical appliances, for instance microwaves, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, oven, coffee maker, toaster and squeezer.

There are three beautiful bedrooms, one with double beds, one with twin beds and one with bunk beds. As mentioned the apartments sleeps two more persons on the double sofa bed.

There is two fully equipped bathrooms, one with bath tub, toilet and bidet and the other bathroom has a shower and toilet. The bathrooms are equipped with hair dryer and iron.

Grácias is the perfect place for those who look for something different; the area is secure and quiet, and getting there is easy and fast. From the metro station Fontana is 100 m away, the city centre with Placa catalunya and las ramblas is only 3 stops away.

It is a great pleasure stroll down the Grácia pedestrian streets, you can discover modernist buildings of late XIX and early XX century with contrast to current live arrays of young draughtsman. In this area live many bohemian artists from all over the world, characterizing it by diversity and eclecticism. The cultural blend enrich the gastronomical offering as well as the cafes, bars and the national and international restaurants. Among the plenty places over Gracia, la Plaça de Sol is a good place where you can take an aperitif in the morning or a café on the afternoon in one of the sunny terraces.....a real Mediterranean lifestyle.

As an alternative to the metro, you can simply walk down Passeig de Grácia, the big boulevard, heart of the Barcelona shopping district, to get to the centre.

Further details outdoors

The apartment is situated in my favourite neighbourhood in Barcelona: Grácia. The area is characterised by small, cosy squares and and narrow streets. Here you get the local atmosphere in contrast to the streets crowded with tourists near Placa Catalunya. By metro you can get to central city in 5-10 minutes with two different lines. By walking, you will get to the fashionable Passeig de Grácia in 10 minutes and then it just strolling down towards central city, passing the famous Gaudi buildings.

It is a great pleasure stroll down the Grácia pedestrian streets, you can discover modernist buildings of late XIX and early XX century with contrast to current live arrays of young draughtsman. In this area live many bohemian artists from all over the world, characterizing it by diversity and eclecticism.

The Catalunia region

In the northeast of the Iberian Peninsula, on the Mediterranean side, and occupying a relatively small area of 32,000 square kilometres, lies Catalonia, one of Spain's most fascinating and diverse regions.

Geographically and culturally, the splendour of Catalonia is so unique. It has a vast diversity of landscapes ranging from rocky coastlines to long flat beaches, from mountains to plains, and from marshlands to forest. It has great cosmopolitan cities such as the amazing Barcelona with its fantastic art nouveau buildings, or the historical Girona and its great old Jewish quarter. It has small medieval mountain villages sitting at the foot of the Pyrenees and elegant coastal resorts in the sandy shores of the Mediterranean Sea.

Catalonia has a distinct regional identity that borrows little form the rest of Spain. Catalans have their own language, and are intensely proud of their unique art, cuisine, folklore and long history. Ask the Catalans themselves and many will tell you that Catalonia is not a region but a nation. Not surprisingly, rivalry between the Catalans and the rest of Spain is an ongoing part of this country's history.

Catalonia is home of great artistic achievements, ranging from grand Greek and Roman monuments, or exquisitely simple Romanesque works, to some of the most exciting art of the twentieth century such as the great Gaudí's avant garde buildings, the surrealism of the painters Salvador Dalí or Miró, or the cubism of Picasso, all of whom spent their formative years in Catalonia.

Catalans pride themselves on good eating too, and you will find some of Spain's finest restaurants here. Catalan food is typically Mediterranean, featuring olive oil as its staple component. As the region is so geographically diverse, it provides a variety of fresh high quality meat, poultry, game, seafood, fruit and vegetables and a great variety of wild mushrooms.

Fine red and white wines are produced here, and Catalan sparkling wines (cavas) are favourite celebratory wines around the world.

Barcelona

Barcelona as we know it today has actually emerged in a very special way. As many other big cities, Barcelona has grown to include nearby towns, which were in ancient times not connected to Barcelona.

What happened was that the visionary town planner Ildefons Cerdà i Sunyer in 1859 had his plan approved (carried out the following years), where he used the land between the old city of Barcelona "Ciutat Vella" with the villages of Grácia, Sarrià, Sant Gervasi, Les Corts and Vallcarca with an entirely new neighbourhood, which was named Eixample (Catalan for extention).

As you will see, the neighbourhood has a net of symmetric and broad avenues making the traffic go fairly smoothly for a city on Barcelona's size. The symmetry is only broken by the big boulevard "Passeig de Grácia, which goes from placa Catalunya up to the neighbourhood Grácia (originally the village Grácia), and the two boulevards Gran Via going from placa Espanya all the way though central city, and Diagonal going from the south-western corner of the city (Les Corts, Sarriá and Sant Gervesi), where the stadium Camp Nou and most of the campus of the Unversitat de Barcelona is situated, and down to cross Gran Via en Placa Glóries.

Grácia

Walking up the boulevard Passeig de Grácia (the passage to Grácia), it is easy to sense that you now enter the neighbourhood Grácia, which was once a village. The streets become very narrow, limiting the traffic, and the central part of the area has several squares, for instance placa del Sol and placa de Libertat. In most streets the pedestrians have preference, so it is very nice to stroll through the neighbourhood with a lot of alternative shops and a lot of atmosphere from the historical buildings in village style. Even if you do not stay in the neighbourhood it might be worth a visit if you like to sit on a square with a glass and follow life. In the evening, the bars are filled with the Catalan youth going out for a drink.
