Overview

Gracia Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Ideal for romantic getaways

Modern penthouse with terrace offering attractive views to Barcelona, until the sea. Enjoy it while dining out or planning your visit to the city sighting avenues and monuments. Relax in a spacious living room with sofa bed, air conditioning, flat screen TV, listening to music or connecting to Internet via wifi. The apartment is equipped with one bedroom with double bed, bathroom with shower and kitchen with dishwasher.

Only 15 minutes walk from the main Barcelona and Gaudí attractions: Sagrada Familia, Passeig de Gracia, La Pedrera ... Very well connected to the center and the cosmopolitan waterfront district, Barceloneta, 10 minutes by subway. The tourist bus route stops at your feet, taking you up to the Park Güell.

The location is ideal to explore Barcelona's bustling center: is close enough to enjoy it.This is an advantage: only 15 minutes walk back at any time, as the area is totally secure. Gracia is a safe neighborhood and is full of small restaurants, bars and small shops open until late at night. It stands at the door of the Gracia neighborhood, where small craft workshops and street shops coexist with local designers.

Enjoy the city during the day and relax in the independent terrace in the evening with its spectacular open views to the sea!

This was our best rental yet and we use VRBO a lot. The Placa Joanic is right at the center of the Metro map of Barcelona and it feels like it. One can walk to most parts of the city or just jump on the subway down the block. Getting out of town is a breeze. And the view from the expansive terrace - truly magnificent. The entire eastern and southern skies are visible. We watched boats in the harbor ( bring a telescope or binoculars if you have them ) and could watch the sun set over the mountains. On a smaller scale, the little park below us was a shifting hub -bub of action. Dogs playing, kids soccer games, ping pong, and locals chatting on benches, all right at our feet.

The apartment itself is about average-sized by European standards, about 50 meters square. But it definitely feels larger with the high ceilings. constant sunlight, and big terrace. Kitchen was well-equipped and very functional. Bathroom was nicely done, with a good shower. Bedroom can be kept separate and quiet but even in February it was nice to crack the window and get fresh air while sleeping. The wifi worked well, except got a little slow at peak times , which was a neighborhood issue, not unique to our apartment. Everything you could want is obtainable within a 6 block radius- markets, bakeries, health club, wine store, empanada shop, bars to watch futbal- you really wouldn't ever have to leave the immediate neighborhood.

Of course the owner can make or break even the best of apartments. Sandra was genuinely a delight. Very responsive right from our first email til our last day and just a sweetheart of a person. Her English is great.

Taken all together this was about as nice a rental as a person could hope for. We spent a month here and would come back in a heartbeat. In fact we'd plan a trip around getting this very unit again if need be. Couldn't imagine staying anywhere else after this.

we're a couple, age 55+, first time visitors to Spain. We loved Barcelona, Gracia, and this apartment. Gracia was a perfect location for our visit. Just far enough from the main whirlwind of tourist activity but not too far from all of the things we came to see(Gaudi,art, Barcelona history and culture). The Metro was just 1/2 block from the front door and took us everywhere, never needed or wanted a car. Food shopping was very convenient and good restaurants are abundant in every direction. The apartment was delightful. The terrace(9th floor) was a great place to unwind and review the day while looking over the city. We had everything we needed to prepare meals, the bed was comfortable, everything worked as it should. Sandra was very helpful with anything we needed and was a delightful host. We loved this place, felt right at home here and had a terrific visit to a beautiful city.
