About Lydia

My name is Lydia and I was born in Barcelona. I work as an air traffic controller at Barcelona airport, approach radar controller. I love travelling around the world and I want for my guests to feel like at home despite of being far away from it. I treat people the way I would like to be treated to make them enjoy as much as I can this incredible city where I am from and that I love so much, my dear Barcelona...

I will give you some advice about Highlights, places not to be missed, restaurants and concerts, do ask me as many questions as you might have. It is my pleasure being able to help you.

I am sure you will enjoy your stay with us.

Lydia purchased this house in 1998

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in a rare gem in Barcelona. Off the street in a pedestrian walkway. Quiet, peaceful, safe. This apartment is a dream and a haven of perfection. Lydia is obviously a special genuine true soul who cares and goes beyond anything to help. The design, quality and all the special details obviously reflect and mirror image the wonderfulness of our hosts. Merci mille fois…one thousands thank yous!

Vacación inolvidable y con muchas ganas de repetir.

  • 5 of 5

Mi familia y yo nos sentimos muy bien recibidos en la casa de Lidia. Mi esposa, mi hija de 17 años y mi hijo de 14 nos sentimos muy cómodos con el apartamento y los consejos de Lydia desde que ella nos recibió en su apartamento en Barcelona.

La localidad es buenísima, el apartamento es lindo, cómodo y práctico que más bien cuesta salir de él. La decoración espectacular, y se encuentra equipado con todo lo que uno puede ocupar. Maravillosas las delicias que nos tenía Lidia para no tener que salir a hacer nuestra primer compra. Esto fue de gran ayuda porque ingresamos a una ciudad que no conocíamos y con ganas de instalarnos en nuestro nuevo hogar.

Su disponibilidad para cualquier pregunta o ayuda fue algo que nos dio una inmensa tranquilidad. Fue una vacación inolvidable y con muchas ganas de repetir.

Wonderful Stay in Barcelona!

  • 5 of 5

An Oasis in the city is a very nice place. Easily accessible and close to public transportation.

The house is very clean, spacious and quite nice.

Many thanks to Lydia who met us in person at the house, gave excellent directions to get to her place and thoughtfully stocked the refrigerator for us, knowing we would be very tired from the long trip.

The house is well stocked with everything you will need during your stay.

Highly recommend this house. You will love the roof garden!

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent 5 days in Barcelona. Lydia went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. The house was well equipped and the welcome package was very generous. The house was located in a quite street but just walking distance from restaurants and grocery store. The beds were very comfortable and in overall there was nothing we could have needed that was not already there. Lydia gave us suggestions of restaurants and various entertainments. She even arranged for our taxi pick up at the airport and back.. We loved Barcelona and plan to come back. Thank you Lydia for making our trip to Barcelona a fantastic experience. We hope to see you soon.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding property in a perfect location. Near the beach, clubs, and restaurants - but also a quick walk to most of the tourist locations and points of interest.

The house was immaculate, and the owner was incredibly helpful and accommodating. I will definitely recommend this place to any friends visiting Barcelona.

Map

La Sagrada Família
Plaça Catalunya
Barcelona Picasso Museum
Tibidabo

The Olympic village of Barcelona is built on the sea front by the Port Olympic Marina. The two towers with a height of 153.5m dominate the Barcelona skyline, a nice view from our house. There are numerous sculptures along the sea front and a wide variety of restaurants, bars and 'chiringuitos' to enjoy the Mediterranean cuisine.

Another must-see is the Torre de las Aigues (1905); The Fish by the sea, designed by Frank Gehry, a huge copper-coloured steel structure that glimmers in the sunlight; the Plaza de Toros Monumental (1914) with its strongly influenced by Mudéjar and Byzantine architecture facade; the elegant Parc de la Ciutadella (1888) and its Monumental Cascade partially designed by Gaudí; and the Barceloneta, the old fisherman's area where you can feel the Mediterranean atmosphere you would expect to find in a fishing community, are some year round tourist attractions that you will not want to miss. And all of them within walking distance.

The Sagrada Familia by Gaudí (1882) is 1,5 miles, 11 min. by bus (10).

Take the subway (Ciutadella / Vila Olímpica L4) and in a quick ride of two stops you get to The Cathedral (13th-15th centuries), the astonishing Gothic Quarter where you walk back in History to the 10th century; and the Picasso Museum. One more stop and you will be by the well-known Plaza Cataluña and Las Ramblas.
