Francoise Forcuit purchased this apartment in 2014
Having lived in Barcelona for 25 years and being a teacher/ interpreter/translator and guide in my spare time I thought it about time to share the fabulousness of this beautiful city with others.
I fell in love with this apartment when I saw it.
This property is ideally situated and has everything going for it.
The view from the Terraces is enchanting, with Gaudi's fabulous masterpiece (the Sagrada Familia), the beaches, the mountains everything one could wish for.
I hope visitors will enjoy it as much as I do.
The uniqueness of this fabulous apartment is the wonderful view afforded from the centre of Barcelona. Mountains one side, sea the other, sunshine up above. What could be better than sitting back and relaxing on a private balcony away from the hustle and bustle of city life, then with a quick ride in the lift to join in the hubub of a busy warm, pleasant, full of life, city. Shops, restaurants, historic monuments, museums and parks. Then when you have had enough retire back to the quiet sanctuary of your Penthouse apartment to enjoy a cool refreshing drink and total relaxation.
yesterday we arrived at home again. We have made a stop in Lyon for one night.
We enjoyed our holidays in Barcelona very very much!! We have seen a lot of beautiful things in Barcelona: Gaudis architekture (Sagrada Familia, Parc Guell, Casa Batlló...), the busy but charming el Gòtic, Barceloneta, Mont Montjuic, Anella Olimpica, Gracia, Eixample, Picasso Museum ......
Our kids liked all the shops, we the interesting mercats, the tapa bars, the wine .....
Thank you again for the book of Sagrada Familia, so we have got a very good overview before we have made the guided tour in english language.
Your flat has been the best starting point for all things we have done. It is quite and not in a direct tourist area (Sagrada is far enough away!) and we have found all we needed to survive. The mercat sagrada, the supermercat, the fruit-shop, the bakery all has been nearby. Sometimes we walked into town, sometimes we have taken the metro, which was nearby. Everything of the flat has been perfect and we felt so comfortable.
We mostly started in the early afternoon and have relaxed before on the beautiful terraces. The daily breakfast over the roofs of Barcelona with a view onto the Sagrada Familia has been so lovely and was a very good start into the day!!! A small lunch with fresh bread, salami, smoked ham from iberico, cheese, olives, Rioja gave us the force for our tours! For the diner we found little restaurants nearby or in the town, where we just have been.
Unfortunally we have broken one of the small plates, we are very sorry about this. Please subtrac it from the deposit.
Overall we have had perfect days in barcelona - and the time goes by so fast. Thank you for your kind reception. We have enjoyed to meet you. We will recommend your flat in our family and by our friends. The latest date we have to come back will be in the year 2026 when Sagrada Familia will be finished (100 years after the death of Gaudi) - perhaps earlier.....
Thank you for all!

First review ever written by me but this spot deserves it . The position is perfect for ease and exploring . The appt is everything and more than the pictures show . The vendor was very helpful before the trip with all info needed . I really cannot praise this place enough . I will be using it every time I visit Barcelona from now on .
Really enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment. Very close to bus and metro stops so easy to get about and great food shops close by, including an indoor food market which sold some wonderful produce. Loved the two terraces for eating meals and sunbathing. All in all a very relaxing, chilled out holiday.
This apartment is so wonderful!! My family and I stayed here for 4 nights and loved every minute of our stay. It was the perfect place for our family of 4. The terraces are incredible! A great area to enjoy the Barcelona sun and skyline. The apartment is perfectly clean and well stocked with all you need. The beds are comfortable. Free wifi. Great location! There are markets nearby for anything you need. You are 3 blocks from the Sagrada di Familia and 2 metro lines which are easy to navigate to get around the city. You even have a view of the Sagrada di Familia and the sea from one of the terraces. A parking garage is located just 2 blocks away and was a very easy and safe place to leave our car while we were there. Rocio met us at the apartment to let us in and was so friendly and welcoming. She sent us an e-mail of restaurants to try and places to visit. So helpful! We hope to return to Barcelona and will definitely stay here again!
We have just returned from a five day break in Barcelona, based on this penthouse apartment and what a great choice we made with this booking. The apartment is ideally located bang in the middle of Barcelona, just three blocks from the Segrada Familia (indeed you can see it from the terrace) with easy access to the metro system - the perfect place from which to explore. All the local amenities that you need are very nearby - supermarkets etc. The apartment was spotlessly clean and Jean Pierre gave us a very thorough introduction our arrival. The real wow factor however with this property are the two roof terraces which were perfect in every way - great terrace furniture, great views across Barcelona, and a great place to relax and eat outside when not doing the tourist bit. But, above all, it was so nice to be able to be private and relax outside in the sun without having to go anywhere. A real find and thoroughly recommended.
The apparment with the two extraordinary terraces, with the view to the sea, to sagrada familia and to Tibidabo has been a special place to make holidays at it's best. The pictures you see in the Internet are real!
So you can relax - if you want to - the whole day over the roofs of Barcelona, get fresh meat or fish, milk, best iberico gammon, cheese, Salami, wine - everythink you want you get near by (in 5 minutes). If you want to discover Barcelona, the metro-station is also nearby (7 minutes) and you can go to very point of Barcelona you want to. Serveral restaurant near the Sagrada have good "touristic food", you also can reach them in a few minutes. We never felt unsafe in the whole sourrounding of the flat!!
Francoise and her husband have been very nice hosts and we enjoyed to meet them.
So if you go to Barcelona, think about a flat (not about a hotel) and take this one! Over the roofs of Barcelona you don't think that you make holidays in a big town like barcelona!
Thank you, Francoise, for the brilliant holidays!
Situated in the shadow of Gaudi's famous Sagrada Familia, in the centre of Barcelona, it affords access to all the main attractions, Tibidabo - Port Olympic - Las Ramblas - Paseo de Gracia etc. All are within a few minutes walk or tube ride.
