Have you ever had the idea to explore the city of Barcelona and at the same time go to nice beaches with the whole family in the middle of summertime. Unthinkable? No! A small house in the quiet district of Horta (metro station 5 min walk) with air conditioning, Internet connection, your own parking place and an especially big paddling pool in the garden makes it possible! We named the house like the name of the owner: Montserrat. I help her in the search for tourists and visitors during the summer months July and August.

The first thing I noticed when I had visited the house the first time was ... the TRANQUILITY! Barcelona is normally one of the first places in the ranking of the noisiest cities in Europe, but here you will not notice at all. The only thing you might hear is the neighbor who plays his guitar.

So CASA MONTSERRAT is a terraced house in a residential neighborhood. It is reached via the garden door, which you cross to get to the house which has 75 m2:

1 On the ground floor are the living room, a guest toilet, a fully equipped kitchenette and dining room which also has a door to a small terasse. There are placed also the washing machine and dryer.

2 The first Floor is reached by a staircase that you can lock from above. A hallway with a desk and CD and DVD shelves (to borrow for guests of the house) leads to a bathroom, a parents bedroom (double bed size 140 x 190cm) with a small balcony and a children's bedroom with 4 single beds (90 x 190cm ) and another desk. If not all beds are used, these can also be easily locked into the wall.

3 Throughout the house, several air conditioning equipments are distributed.

4 The garden of the house is about 60 square meters big, so plenty of space to play or relax with a book on a lounger.

5 Last but not least, an important detail: There is a garage available where you can park your car safely. The community garage is located about 50 meters from the house.

Rerecreation areas are very close!

- Collserola Park on the hills of Barcelona

- Carretera de les Aigues, an about 20km long, flat trail with spectacular views of Barcelona and the surrounding area!

I'll give you more tips on the spot, if you want to. I live in Barcelona since more than 9 years, so just ask me!

BTW: We'll welcome you with a nice bottle of catalan CAVA from the Pened├Ęs area in the south of Barcelona :-)

The Costa Brava/Catalonia/Barcelona region

To enjoy beach days in addition to the sightseeing in Barcelona, I recommend you to go to local beaches nearby. With the wide network of regional rail line you are at great spots within few time! If you go to the Marseme beaches in the north of Barcelona, you'll find incredibly long and wide sandy beaches.

Barcelona

The district of Horta has its own pedestrian zone and spacious avenues with majestetical homes like the ones in the lovely Calle Campoamor. There are parks nearby that are not quite as famous as the Park Guell, but nevertheless as interesting: eg the Labyrinth of Horta, where you can really get lost within the intricate ways.

But other recreation areas are also very close!

- Collserola Park on the hills of Barcelona

- Carretera de les Aigues, an about 20km long, flat trail with spectacular views of Barcelona and the surrounding area!

I'll give you more tips on the spot, if you want to. I live in Barcelona since more than 8 years, so just ask me :)
