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
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!
