Overview

Santa Coloma de Cervelló Condo Rental Photos and Description

Holiday rental in Historic town Colònia Güell (Santa Coloma de Cervelló)

Turistic Appartment. Oficial Register HUTB-005020

Welcome to your home. Let's say you have just returned from a day's sightseeing in Barcelona, or the beach in Gava, or picking up someone at the airport. You're a little tired.

Your house welcomes you. It's a first floor and despite being 100 years is perfectly restored. He is happy, full of sunshine: The living room and balcony overlooking the town park and the rising sun, the kitchen loggia faces the setting sun. And all day around, the 80 m2 large private terrace (in the upper floor) invites you to enjoy the sun, or dine in the night, making a barbecue, or just relaxing with the view of our plants and surrounding fields.

If you prefer to enjoy the inside, you can relax on the comfortable sofas (5 people) in the living room, watching TV or satellite channels. You can also listen to music on the CD player, or simply read a good book in our reading corner: There are hundreds of books in the library in several languages, choose yours (Bookcrossing accepted!).

Why not preparing a meal, while children play in the park? In the kitchen you will find everything you need: Tableware, oven, induction stove, blender, coffee, condiments such as salt and sugar. In the same kitchen is the dining room for eight, to spare you travelling with the dishes.

After that, a good shower or bath (hot water without limit), it's up to you to decide. Plenty of towels provided.

And finally, after a drink watching the night sky on the roof terrace, or a coffee in the bar downstairs, it's time to go to bed. You will find them prepared, with clean sheets, and there are 3 bedrooms for a total of 5 people.

We want you to be comfortable, so for the winter there is central heating throughout the house (no need to worry about anything, is automatic), and ceiling fans in all rooms for the summer. Air conditioning.

Well, you have visited Barcelona, what else can you do?

A lot. Because not only you can go to Barcelona comfortably by train or by car free highways, you can also go to nearby tourist spots like beaches of Gava and Castelldefels (14 km, 17 minutes), pick someone up at the airport in Barcelona (12 km, 16 minutes), Barcelona city ( 15 Km), or visit Sitges.

But why going out of Colònia Güell every day? It is a charming town, small but all the buildings are in the same style. So quiet that children are able to play in the streets, like years ago. You can visit the many unique Modern Style buildings such as the Church (World Heritage Site) and the museum, eat at any of the 3 restaurants, drink in one of the two bars or buy at the bakery or the other two stores. You can walk your pets (or you alone, if you do not have one) on the paths and forests surrounding the village. Why not buying fresh products in the peasant market each Saturday morning? So you can eat very fresh fruit and vegetables, and support the local agriculture.

Fabulous, homey apartment close to Barcelona

  • 4 of 5

My husband, dog and I spent 4 weeks in the apartment. We have a wonderful time. The apartment is very homey and is equipped with everything you need. We loved the terrace on the sunny days. We had no problems with anything in the apartment once we figured out how to use the stove! The only negative is that the furniture is a bit old and not very comfortable. Same with the bed in the large bedroom...mattress was very hard. We loved the little village of Colonia Guell. Great walking trails and a few cafes. There is great area to throw the ball fro the dog right across the street and a place to play a little ping pong. You are able to get a few groceries (not much) at the bodega but we never could figure out when it was going to be open. We rented a car for the month which was great as we explored many coastal towns each day.

Excelente!

  • 5 of 5

Hemos pasado las Navidades del 2012 en este hermoso pueblo, situado cerca de todo y lo suficientemente lejos para poder sentir la tranquilidad y calma que buscabamos para estas fiestas.

Somos una familia con dos niñas pequeñitas y la casa tenía todo lo necesario y más para poder disfrutar, desde cuna y trona, hasta juguetes para todos los gustos y edades. Las habitaciones muy bien equipadas y preparadas para nuestra llegada, no fue necesario comprar ni llevar nada, sus dueños lo habían pensado todo. Desde lo que podríamos necesitar tras la llegada y estadía, hasta calefaccionar la casa con antecedencia.

El tiempo también nos acompañó y a pesar de ser invierno, la soleada y amplia terrasa nos permitió aprovechar cada rayito de sol para jugar con las niñas y hacer barbacoas con amigos.

Sin duda, intentaremos que nuestra estadía en Barcelona se repita en esta casa.

Muchas gracias a Carlos y Angeles por todos los detalles.

Une localisation parfaite

  • 5 of 5

Une situation exceptionnelle, 20 minutes en métro du centre de Barcelone, au vert à la campagne et dans un site patrimonial de grande qualité. Parfait!

La terrasse un vrai bonheur à toute heure et l'appartement petit mais fonctionnel et agréable.

Des propriétaires disponibles pour répondre à nos interrogations et faciliter le séjour. Il manque juste une carte de randonnées des sentiers alentours!

Merci pour tout.

UNAS PERFECTAS VACACIONES DE NAVIDAD !!!

Días soleados con temperaturas suaves, lo cual nos ha permitido disfrutar de su encantadora terraza (y sus preciosas vistas), de largos paseos con nuestra perrita Debbie y visitar pueblos cercanos y su "Camino Verde". Reiteramos nuestra satisfacción con la limpieza del piso y sus comodidades. Hay que destacar también la interesante y amplia biblioteca para todos los gustos.

Agradecemos a Carlos y Ângels su hospitalidad y amabilidad y el detalle de recibirnos con una botella de Cava catalán!

Hemos disfrutado muchísimo visitando la Colónia Güell, La Cripta y sorprendiéndonos con edificios modernistas que forman parte de este pueblo realmente encantador, como una "isla mágica" de otro tiempo!

Han sido 10 días para el recuerdo.

A green oasis near the big city

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a month in the house and we enjoyed it most of the time. The living room is quite large and cosy, with comfortable chairs and plenty of books, mostly in Spanish, but also Catalan, French and English, to choose from. The kitchen is a bit dark, but well-equipped. The bathroom offers a lot of space to put your own toiletries and has a good shower as well as a bath tub. Beds are OK. The roof terrace is very attractive with lots of flowers and wonderful views of the village and the mountains. It could do with a bit more protection against rain and wind, though on hot days the fresh air is certainly welcome. The village itself is usually very quiet. Still, the little park on the other side of the road can at times be a bit noisy and the fact that the rubbish is collected at 1:30am is definitely a nuisance. It is very easy to park the car; no need to search for a space in the middle of the night. Parking is free. Barcelona is within easy reach by car or by train, with very frequent connections. Shopping can be done on foot in Sant Boi; for a large supermarket, a car is necessary. What we enjoyed most were the many walking possibities just close to the house. Though most people probably come to Barcelona for sightseeing, being able to get some fresh air and exercise in surprisingly beautiful and quiet surroundings, so close to Barcelona, is wonderful. The mountains behind Colonia Guell and the river Llobregat offer a variety of walking trails through wooded areas, cherry plantations, market gardens as well as spectacular view points over the city. The owners of the house, Carles and Angels, are good hosts and ready to answer any questions, without being obtrusive. This is an excellent place to stay, particularly for longer visits.

Owner's Response: Thanks a lot for your kind comments, it's always good to have the oportunity to improve. We are happy you enjoyed your staying in our appartment. Spring was really the best time in the year for taking adavantage of the flowers in the big terrace and walkings in the surroundings; now it's getting warmer and every bit of wind is welcome to be refreshed from the sun (in fact, just after you left we have installed a big sunshade in the terrace), but we get the point about installing some protection from the wind in fall and winter, and we will do in October. We will check also with the Council if it's possible to collect the garbage at another hour, because it can be a bit disturbing, even if it's only some minutes. Regarding the park, it's a great place for the children to play, but they are not there at night, so we hope this was big deal.

DO YOU WANT TO VISIT BARCELONA AND REST IN A VERY SPECIAL TOWN? La Colònia Güell is a small village of 900 inhabitants near Barcelona. So close, that you can easily get to Barcelona in a few minutes either by train or by car. You can wander in Barcelona, but also in the fields and pine forests of our little town. You can visit the Sagrada Familia by Gaudi, in Barcelona but also the church of Colònia Guell, built by Gaudí some years before and World Heritage Site since 2005 (http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cripta_de_la_Colonia_Guell). You can buy in small shops in our town, or in the fruit and vegetable market of the surroundings farmers every Saturday morning, or in the supermarkets in the nearby town (Santa Coloma de Cervello). If you come with children, they can enjoy the park just below our balcony, and streets where children can still play without fear of cars. And you can park next door!.

IN SUMMARY: You can enjoy something that is hard to find nowadays: The life of a very quiet, friendly, and full of unique buildings village, and a stone's throw from Barcelona!.

MORE INFORMATION: Colònia Güell is a historic site fully built in Modern Style, and was begun in 1890 when Earl Güell decided to move his textile factory from Barcelona, so he built a town for the workers from scratch. Today, the town still maintains the same look and you can visit the unique buildings built by leading modernist architects of the period, such as the old school, the Director House and the Market (nowadays the museum). Among which, no doubt, the church, called the Crypt, by Antoni Gaudí, which attracts thousands of visitors every year and is a World Heritage Site. More information: (http://www.gaudicoloniaguell.org/en).

NEAR ALL: Thanks to its superb location, all sights are quickly accessible by car for free motorways: Barcelona (14 km, 20 minutes), Airport (12 km, 16 minutes), Gava and Castelldefels beach (14 km , 17 minutes). Bruguera Tennis Academy 3 km. The best choice for vacation rentals in Barcelona.
