What a perfect place to stay in Barcelona for 9 nights! We could not have had better hosts--or a better view of the amazing Gaudi Sagrada Familia Cathedral across the street.
My girlfriend from Australia (with her 20-yr-old daughter) and I (from Florida) have met up around the world for years, but our favorite vacation so far is beautiful Barcelona because we stayed in this cute, convenient apartment under the expert care of Arturo. He and his staff were so available and helpful before, during, and after our stay....perfect airport pick up and drop off, plus something I left behind in the master bedroom was mailed to the US immediately.
The apt is in a great location just north of the city center...we were able to live and shop like locals, walk in so many lovely directions, catch the clean, efficient Metro just steps away, and return every night to admire the Gaudi cathedral lights across the park.
It's really easy to get to Las Ramblas and the beaches and everywhere else in the Barcelona area by Metro from the apt...no need to stay in the middle of noise and traffic.
Buy a Metro pass that's good for a number of trips, and your whole party can use the same ticket. Spend lots of time walking in the winding streets and alleys of the Gothic Quarter, the Old City, Park Guell, the port. We enjoyed the aquarium, all the museums and cathedrals, tapas bars, shopping, and a side trip by train to the mountain monastery in Montserrat. There are so many things to do.
It was hard to leave our Barcelona home-away-from-home... I'd return in a minute. My girlfriend and I highly recommend that you do not hesitate booking with Arturo and Joana for your vacation.
