Overview

Vila de Gràcia Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Central penthouse with private terrace in Barcelona

Modern penthouse with terrace and spectacular Barcelona views. Enjoy it while dining and relax in a spacious living room with sofa bed, air conditioning, flat screen TV, listening to music or connecting to the Internet via wifi. The apartment is equipped with two bedrooms with double bed, bathroom with bath and kitchen with dishwasher.

Only 15 minutes walk from Barcelona and Gaudí main attractions: Sagrada Familia, Passeig de Gracia, La Pedrera... Very well communicated to Ramblas and Gothic Quarter or even the cosmopolitan seafront , Barceloneta, 10 minutes by metro.

The location is absolutely perfect to explore Barcelona: the hustle of the city is close enough to enjoy it at anytime you feel like but at the same time you are advantageous because you can get away from it in 15 minutes walk at anytime. It is in the middle of 'bus turistic' route heading to Park Güell. The area, Gracia, is safe and full of cosy restaurants, bars and small groceries opening until late night. At the door of Gracia neighbourhood, where bohemian craft ateliers live with local designer shops.Very lively in summer nights.

Enjoy the city during the day and relax at the private and calmed ambience of the terrace: having dinner and chilling out with the mountain views.

Wonderful location, great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Two of us, both women in our 60s, stayed in this efficient, clean, and well-equipped flat on the 9th floor for 8 nights, and it was GREAT. Being on the top floor was an advantage (less street noise, good views). The flat was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Sandra Porras, the host from whom we rented, was so helpful to us, very generous with her time, and she answered all our questions about our stay in Barcelona. The building is next to the "Joanic" Metro station in a pleasant, safe neighborhood with grocery stores, pharmacies and a few small restaurants nearby. A great experience overall!

fantastisch appartement met dakterras

  • 5 of 5

Mooi appartement in Gracia, een leuke oude wijk van Barcelona. 50 meter van de voordeur is de metro, die je in 5 haltes naar het oude centrum brengt. De sagrada familie is 10 min lopen. In de buurt veel supermarktjes en prima bakkers. Het appartementencomplex ligt aan een pleintje waar de locals honden uitlaten en hun kinderen laten spelen. Speeltuin voor de deur met ook 2 tafeltennistafels. Het appartement is niet groot maar wel volledig. 2 mooie slaapkamers met prima bedden. Een kleine badkamer maar wel overkomelijk. De keuken is groot en volledig ingericht. Grote flatscreen TV (niet geprobeerd). Groot dakterras met eettafel en 2 ligstoelen. Mooi uitzicht op zee, maar niet op de Sagrada familia (zit achter een gebouw). De beheerdster is vriendelijk en spreekt goed engels. Je moet wel 30 euro extra afrekenen als je na 23 uur arriveert. Kortom een aanrader, ook met kinderen.

Great apartment.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very clean and had everything we needed. I and my two adult grandchildren were very comfortable. The beds were perfect. It was a nice bonus to have the deck. The neighborhood is quiet although it has many cafes. One evening wee were tired of tapas and tried Il Piccolo across the plaza. The food was very good, but the Sangria was exceptionally good. I would choose this apartment again.

Delightful, wonderful apartment in Gracia

  • 5 of 5

I recommend this special, lovely apartment in the charming neighborhood of Gracia in Barcelona. My friend and I totally enjoyed our stay. The flat was clean, comfortable, modern and had a wonderful view and balcony too. The neighborhood was both convenient and captivating; we felt like we were living in a real city neighborhood with a popular children's playground right across the street. We had heard to stay away from the very touristy Las Ramblas downtown area. A number of our friends cautioned us about the noise/traffic/crowds in that area. What we read drew us to Gracia and we weren't disappointed. There was even a major metro stop at our doorstep. We particularly liked being so close to the artisan/bohemian, section of Gracia right down the block with its narrow, winding, old streets and its bohemian/college-town feeling.

Adding to our delightful stay was our fabulous apartment “host”, Sandra Porras!! Sandra couldn't have been more helpful in every way, from orienting us to the area, answering our many, many questions, booking us tours, making reservations for us, etc., etc. She couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.

Great apartment and great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment for 3 nights and only have positive feedback.

Sandra who looks after the rental was very friendly and gave us lots of tips about the area including restaurant recommendation. The apartment was great and spacious, we were 2 adults and 2 kids, everything worked and the view from the balcony was wonderful. Not a noise apartment at all. The location is perfect only a few steps to the metro station and the Gracia area is great, we were able to walk everywhere for dinner and there was lots of nice bars and restaurants and not to mention the cute shops. I would definitely stay there again.

Très bon choix

  • 5 of 5

Excellent séjour à Barcelone (2 couples) - Appartement tout confort, propre et bien équipé avec superbe vue dégagée (9ème étage), très calme malgré la situation centrale et dans un quartier animé, non loin du parc Güell et de la Sagrada familia - Metro et arrêt de bus au pied de l'immeuble. Supermarché à 100m.

Très bon accueil par la propriétaire, disponible et de bon conseil.

Gracia is a safe neighbourhood, downtown and trendy restaurants with a variety of local and international cuisine and drinks in cozy bars. Shops that cover all needs and bohemian artists workshops living with designer clothes shops with character. Much local environment during the summer evenings and particularly in late August with the 'Fiestas de Gracia', local festivals.

A 15 minute walk to downtown, and very well connected by public transport: a 2 minute walk from the tourist bus stop that goes to Park Guell, metro, bus and taxi to a minute.

Close to major Gaudí attractions (Sagrada Familia and La Pedrera) to enjoy Barcelona day and relax at the terrace, independently, with a dinner, enjoying the views of Barcelona when back home in the evening.
