We loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here at the villa. The place was spacious for a group of 7 - the villa was nicely stocked with kitchen supplies and a great grocery store was just a street down. It was a close walk to the blue and L4 line which is all you need to get around Barcelona. The backyard and upstairs patio was icing on the cake and was great to lounge about.

I also accidentally left behind an item when I flew out of Barcelona and Maria and Antonio were so quick and responsive and helpful in shipping it for me - I am forever grateful.

I would def recommend staying here and WHEN I come back to barcelona with a group I would not hesitate to stay here. Thank you!!!

Owner's Response: It was not only our duty but also our pleasure to recover and deliver to Thian the item she left in the villa. We struggle to give full service to our guests and look forward hosting this lovely group again!.

Barcelona villa

  • 5 of 5

The property was incredible, beautiful garden and pool. Well kept and would come back again the next time to Barcelona. Very easy to metro and local shops.

Antiono and Maria were great hosts and meet us there and got us a taxi when we left for the airport.

A bit of paradise in the city!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a wonderful week at Villa Rosario. Maria and Antonio are very professional; emails were always answered quickly, and the flat was comfortable and well appointed. The garden and pool, with its surrounding fruit trees (peach, plum, fig, lemon, and orange) was such a welcome retreat after a day exploring the city. There is a small convenience store on the same block, a pharmacy a block away, and the flat is two blocks to the metro which takes you to the center of town in 10 minutes.

Highly recommend your family considering this place for future stays in Barcelona. Thank you Maria and Antonio!

Owner's Response: Michelle and her lovely family are the guests you always wish to have. They have been perfect in every way and it is very rewarding to read this as a recognition to all our efforts to keep the villa in perfect condition (not easy in a 1904 listed modernist house). They will be welcome again any time!.

Great base for enjoying Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

We were 6 people - 2 grand parents, 2 siblings + 1 spouse, 1 grand child who stayed for a week at this villa. It was perfect with 4 bedrooms, a nice living room and kitchen and 2 bathrooms. The terrace attached to the main living floor is an excellent place to hang out in the evening and night, we spent many hours there drinking rose and eating iberico and cheese!

Maria and Antonio, the hosts were a perfect! They proactively reached out to us, providing us taxi directions in Spanish, aligning our (early) arrival time and departing time for the previous guests. During our stay, they were super available and helped with making taxi reservations, etc. Of note, when our taxi was delayed, Antonio not only got us a new taxi, but also called the restaurant and informed them we will be a little late due to no fault of ours - I really appreciated the extra attention to detail.

There is one "American size" bathroom and one "European size" bathroom with shower. only the big one has sinks (2 of them), so we needed to schedule ourselves during morning "rush" hour. No big deal, but worth noting with a larger group of adults. The pool is small, but very effective in cooling you off on a warm Barcelona summer day!

The location is in residential part of town, which is super quiet and blissfully non-touristic. However, there is some commuting involved to see the sites. The Metro station that we used all the time (Guinardo) is about 6-8 min walk and then 7 stops to center of town. We loved walking up the hill to visit the Parc Guinardo, which is a local park which eventually gives a nice view of the city and the Med beyond.

Overall, cannot recommend this place enough. The villa, the location and most importantly the hosts made our trip a true pleasure and one to remember.

Owner's Response: Lovely family and our pleasure to collaborate in making their stay unforgettable. In the villa there are two bathrooms just refurbished, but this is a listed house with strict legal restrictions to make any major change to protect architectural landmarks.

FABULOUS!

  • 5 of 5

This place is flat out amazing. Pictures just do not do it justice. It's spacious and comfortable. Located in an great area we had no problems using public transportation to get just about anywhere we wanted to go and there was a huge market within walking distance. Maria and Antonio are also great people which made the experience all the better.
