About Francoise Forcuit

My husband and I are both professionals.

We use this as our week-end retreat. We also have a beautiful Penthouse beach apartment holiday home which we rent out - Las Terrazas de Calafell.

Francoise Forcuit purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Francoise Forcuit chose Sagrada Familia

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Francoise,

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!

Kind regards

Joachim, Birgit, Janina & Alena

Best place to relax and explore Barcelona

  • 5 out of 5
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!

Lovely apartment

  • 5 out of 5
We had a fantastic stay at this apartment, Françoise and her husband were the perfect hosts. Very welcoming and lovely people.
The location was perfect for us to get around as there was a tube station only minutes walk away. There are supermarkets, restaurants and bars all close by and in walking distance.
The apartment itself was modern and clean and had all the amenities needed for our stay and more. It is situated on the top floor of the building and boasts two beautiful terraces that get the sunshine throughout the day.
Perfect stay, thanks again Françoise

A dream come true!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Wow what a wonderful apartment and the owner, Françoise, couldn't have been more helpful if she tried.
Situated a stones throw from Gaudi's famous Sagrada Familia you get what it says on the box.
A sumptuous Penthouse apartment with all mod cons. Exceptionally tastefully decorated, clean, fresh with comfy furniture and dreamy beds.
Everything worked! the terraces are to die for - just watch out for sunburn. Although we had been warned by Françoise we nearly fell foul.
The shops are close by and there is a good selection. There is an incredible dairy opposite - not good for the waistline!
The apartment is within easy reach of everything - beach, don't forget a towel and remember there is a nudist one too if you have kids - the city centre - the metro - the old part.
Just a perfect location at, for me, a very low price - they could have charged double and I would have been happy.
My last thought - I only wish I could live here!!
Five stars is not enough, it deserves at least 10!!

Mejor imposible

  • 5 out of 5
Alquile este piso para Semana Santa , y nos gusto nada más llegar. Los propietarios son gente encantadora que nos esperaban con cava. La ubicación del,piso es fenomenal está a dos pasos de la Sagrada familia y de Rambla Gaudí donde hay una gran oferta de restaurantes . Saliendo del piso hay varias fruterías , carnicerías ,una auténtica lechería y el mercado municipal de la Sagrada familia .En cuanto al piso es una mónada , decoración muy cuca , muy luminoso , muy limpio y como acaban de reformar todo esta para estrenar . No le falta nada al piso con una cocina muy bien equipada .Ahora lo mejor las terrazas muy muy amplias ,con una zona Chill out ,equipado con una ducha solar , con unas vistas impresionantes tanto al Mar como a la montaña que se convierten en una espectacular mirador de noche . Cada una esta equipada para escoger tu estancia tanto de día como de noche.Sin duda cuando venga a Barcelona repetiré y Mientas tanto lo recomiendo a mis amigos
