IMPORTANT FACTS

• Families and children are always welcome. Groups of friends are welcome only and exclusively if the average age is over 25 and you compromise with House rules and contract’s terms & conditions. Especially we like to point out that we really care about neighbors and we strongly work to make the holiday of our guests as pleasant as possible, in a peaceful and quiet environment. Outdoor music, parties, screaming or yelling are forbidden. After 10pm we ask for special attention to quiet, thank you.

• The property is a tiered house above a sloping ground, which permits fantastic views from different levels. Many outdoor and indoor stairs make this property not suitable for guests with mobility problems. Sorry.

• Full privacy. In this property/ground there are two totally separated accommodations. Each accommodation has its own private and separated outdoor area, private swimming pool for exclusive use, garden, BBQ area, all with full privacy. No other guests will be able to access your outdoor and indoor areas, garden, swimming pool. We also improved privacy with new fences around the pool at the wood side (over the swimming pool) and hiding the deposit area (4th little floor at pool level) which we use also for maintenance of the swimming pool (when we come for swimming pool maintenance we use a different dedicated entrance, without passing in your garden, respecting your privacy).

Furthermore, being this property a tiered house above a sloping ground, every accommodation and swimming pool areas have full privacy and discretion on different levels. You’ll be in a safe environment: the first gate/doorway will let you in “Property Cycas Barcelona”. The second gate/doorway will let you your “exclusive use Villa Cycas Barcelona”. Once you close this second gate/doorway, you are in you private house, with private garden, pool, terraces, bbq area. Enjoy!!!

We fully equipped the house for Vacation rentals, with BBQ, fast WIFI/fiber optic internet connection, pool with a fantastic tiles bench immerse in water to lay down to sunbathe in the water, clean towels and complete beddings with certified protection against allergic sources.

We clean and hygienize the whole house and swimming pool before every single check-in. With bathrooms, bedding, kitchen and swimming pool, we do even more: we follow international procedure and use legally certified cleaning products to guaranty disinfection.

Fantastic Views, Lovely Location and Great Host

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at this property at the beginning of July, the views are outstanding and the house is a great size. The BBQ is great, everything you need is there. We had a car for a few days and also used taxis. We travelled into Barcelona on the train for one day which was no problem. Giovanni could not have been more helpful and was on hand with any and every question we had, all in all he made the holiday extra special as we did not need to worry about anything.

a great place for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent nearly two weeks holiday in Villa Cycas. The villa is in a very beautiful location with stunning views. Mr. Giovanni was very friendly and helpful. Argentona village was idyllic and there was a good transportation links to Mataro and Barcelona. Could accommodate two families to live well and the facilities were excellent. We walked a lot of up and down to hill, which was a good exercise. We did not need a rental car, and we are moved by taxi those times when we were tired.

Great out of town base for a group

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely villa which incorporates several different smaller apartments which can be rented independently or together for a larger group. It is modern and very well equipped for cooking and dining. There are huge picture windows from the main living area which really help to make the most of the fabulous views. There is also a lovely dining terrace which looks out to the views.

The outside area is terraced with 2 smallish pools, one a plunge pool, the other a lengths pool. Both unheated so we didn't use them in February.

Argentona is a lovely small town approx 30 minutes drive into Barcelona. parking in Barcelona is easy in garages, so as long as you have a willing driver this is a good base for visiting the city-which is of course fabulous!

I believe you can also get the train into Barcelona from a nearby station (approx 15 minutes drive) we didn't try this.

Approx 15 minutes drive away are beach resorts and lovely sandy beaches.

Supermarkets approx 15 minutes drive

Giovanni was very helpful explaining to us exactly where to go, how to get there, how everything at the villa worked etc etc.

Any disadvantages?

The villa is quite a long way up a very steep hill. This means you need a car and a driver confident driving in steep terrain (and hill starts!).

You can't really walk anywhere to shops, bars restaurants etc a car is essential.

If you are a larger group check the sleeping arrangements will suit your party-some rooms have beds for 3 or 4 people.

Best bits:

Great views

Modern attractive villa

Very well equipped kitchen

Good wifi

Owner's Response: Thank you Fiona for your review! About bedrooms, in the short time we are going to add one new bedroom, getting the total to 6 bedrooms for principal Villa Cycas. About supermarkets and beaches, there are closer ones (some little complete and new supermarkets in Argentona, 1 km from home on a steep hill; the closest beach, in Mataró, 4 km from the Villa). About car it is recommended to have a car, of course! One last note: The Villa could be divided into small apartments, but usually we rent the whole villa together. The visitors, despite living in the same Villa, can look for the interior spaces of privacy, especially useful for "families reunions" or groups of families of friends who want to be together but with a little privacy for each family. About Fiona's group, very very nice guests, very respectful with the neighbors and with the Villa. Thanks for coming!

Greetings from Finland

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing vacation! The house was exactly what we expected it to be. We enjoyed the pool area, and the lovely view from the terrace. The apartment was big enough for ten people. And we had no conplaints whatsoever. Giovanni was really helpful with everything. He knew a lot about Barcelona and he was a huge help for us.

Fantastiskt

  • 5 of 5

Vi var 11 folk i ni dage. Ikke meget at sætte fingeren på. Fantastisk hus og fantastisk udsigt. Meget fredeligt kvarter. Udlejeren gjorde alt for at vi skulle føle os tilpas. Vi glemte et kuffert, men udlejeren var så flink at køre det til lufthavnen for os dagen efter, så at bekendte kunne tage vores kuffert med hjem. Vi lejede bil og det var meget nemt at køre til strand, ind til Barcelona by osv. Alt i alt gode faciliteter og dejlig by.
