About Teo

My name is Teodor de Mas and I was born in Barcelona on August 26, 1973.

This flat is a shared dream with my French wife, Hélène, and my 3 children.

All the designed furniture and lamps was my wife's idea, I always the tough guy dealing with suppliers to get the best prices :-)

Teo purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Teo chose Gracia

Barcelona city is where we lived together, my wife Hélène and myself, from 1998 to 2002.

We moved to Sant Cugat suburb but we promised ourselves to trying to buy our own apartment in Gracia, to coming back to retire, and meanwhile renting it to people interested in knowing more about Gracia suburb and Barcelona as a whole.

What makes this apartment unique

You will like the apartment as soon as you will see it in pictures (more pictures will be soon available, but we couldn't wait anymore to show you our flat).

As soon as you are in front of the building, you will see this old well preserved façade and you will see the iron hand-made door, 100 years old, and you will be in it.

Till we have not yet the elevator, you will go upstairs, all in iron hand-made, observing the vintage doors and the natural light coming from the roof, till you will be in front of your new house.

The flat has been refurbished with much love and for you and for us. We want to share it with you!

On the right side you will see the refurbished flat but trying to leave it as it was, 100 years ago. That means we 'saved' the floor and the roof (see pictures).

In front of you, you will the see hand-made furniture with old tiles made by Justo, and a porcelain lamp made by Arianna Russo, our italian artist friend.

On the left side, a perfect new kitchen and bathroom, with best materials and Bosch machines.

On the left side at the end, the other sleeping room, with a modern design style.

On both rooms my wife created the bed tables from old cupboards. The result is amazing, like a children's dream, you will see and experience it!

2 air conditioning and several heating machines will ensure you a comfortable stay.

The kitchen is fully equipped (washing machine, dryer, oven, fridge, dishwasher and microwaves).

For children we offer games, books, high chair and bed for baby, if needed.

If you are coming by plane, we can arrange for you the pick up at the airport and driving to the flat.

Perfect! I'd love to come back and stay in this apartment again

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely terrific. Bright, clean, well-equipped apartment in the perfect location to explore Barcelona.

The apartment: My favorite amenities were the washer *and* dryer (we have stayed in many similar apartments in Europe this summer and have never seen a clothes dryer. We were all able to get all of our clothes washed and dried without taking a day out to go to an automatic laundry). The shower is great, and the towels are fluffy and large. The air conditioning is strong and effective. Beds were fairly comfortable, and the common living areas and kitchen were great, with interesting decorations. The 75 stairs were not too bad, and got easier each day. It also made us feel better about eating our morning croissants from the great bakery across the street.

The location: I can't imagine any better. It is a short and interesting walk to the Fontana L3 station, and from their we were able to get anywhere we wanted in just a few minutes. I don't think we were ever on the metro for more than 15 minutes. We also walked a lot but that was our choice and a great way to explore.

Check in was good (though we were never able to locate the driver that Teo's team arranged to pick us up at the airport -- after waiting almost an hour and calling the taxi company twice, we just gave up and took a regular taxi for exactly the same price). Kumar showed us around the apartment, how to work the stove (important! I couldn't have figured it out on my own), and gave us some tips about seeing Barcelona.

A great stay, and I can't wait to return.

Good location but needs better management

  • 4 of 5

I lived in Barcelona so I knew I wanted to stay in Gracia while there. It is a unique neighborhood close to many restaurants and shopping. However, our experience was not totally as expected.

Communication-We speak Spanish so I thought communication would flow smoothly but it was not the case. Every time we asked a question we first got an automated response, then Teo would refer us to Patricia, who never replied, and then Teo would reply. Even when we were at the apartment, we called Patricia and she never answered and her voicemail box was full so we couldn't even leave a message. So we ended up contacting Teo after he had asked us to contact Patricia.

Cleanliness- This is my biggest complaint. When we arrived, we were surprised to find ants crawling all over the kitchen. The dishes in the dishwasher had been left dirty for who knows how long. So we turn it on and get the ants out of there. Also, the bathroom had a couple of towels hanging, which looked like they had been used. This two instances left me uneasy with the level of care and cleanliness of the place. Also, some tiles in the shower had mold.

Space- The Apartment was spacious, nicely decorated, with a modern bathroom, kitchen had all the cooking essentials. Shampoo and shower gel were provided; which is a nice touch. It seems a lot of care went into setting it up, it just hasn't been maintained as well.

Location- is good and not noisy.

Esperamos que este review sirva para mejorar el servicio, gracias Teo.

Light and Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed Teo's apartment! It was very light and open. We enjoyed having space to spread out. It had everything you could possibly need. We were very comfortable there. Even though you had to walk up those 75 steps, we were so happy to have such a nice place to call home for a few days in Barcelona.

Thank you, Teo.

it as ok, looked better in the pictures

  • 3 of 5

Theodor was very helpful from the beginning, as was Patricia the property manager. A few things I did not like, was our airport transfer never showed up, and Patricia was not there when we got there. She sent over a man to clean the place, but knowing we were an english speaking couple, this man did not speak english. It was very frustrating since it took longer to get accustomed to everything, and I had to call Patricia numerous times for her to go over information with us. Other than that, it was clean, and a place to sleep which is all we needed.

Nice apartment in a cool neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Very clean updated apartment. Good location convenient to local attractions and public transportation. Very close to a few squares with restaurants and bars. The owner, Teo, was very responsive and Patricia was very friendly and helpful when we arrived. All in all it was a great stay. Wish we could have stayed longer, two days is not enough. We would recommend this apartment.

As advertised, but here's what you should know

  • 4 of 5

Wifi reception is unavailable in the master bedroom. The coffeemaker does work because the induction stove does not become hot enough to reach brewing temperature. This is because the induction system cannot recognize the small sized Italian coffee maker is there. The induction stove cooks eggs and other items just fine. There is no AC in the second bedroom. There is no elevator for the 79 steps up to the apartment. The balcony is too narrow to accommodate chairs. The photo of the building is not the aprtment building. The roof terrace is closed for construction. Dryer is slow, but do not hang clothes on line outside master bedroom window on a windy day or it will blow away.
