Make a holiday apartment in Fort Pienc your home away from home

Fort Pienc holiday homes are in a great central location, and you can find the best rentals on HomeAway. A few blocks away are classic Barcelona landmarks like the Parc de la Ciutadella and Gaudí’s stunning Sagrada Família. But despite being so close to the top sights, Fort Pienc apartments are set on peaceful residential streets complemented by typical local amenities like bakers and cafes. This makes it a fabulous location for family holidays, a quality also reflected by the generous size and functionality of holiday homes in Fort Pienc. Accommodation is housed in turn-of-the-century buildings, with interiors boasting stylish furniture and up-to-date facilities.

Things to do

-Modernist architecture. Some of Antoni Gaudí’s most spectacular buildings are set not far from Fort Pienc. There’s the Sagrada Família, the stunning basilica, so intricate that after more than 130 years under construction it is still being built. There are other beautiful examples at Casa Batlló, as well as La Pedrera, which has a terrace on its roof, offering memorable views of Barcelona.

-Other attractions. One of the essential views of Barcelona for almost a century is from the tramway connecting Montjuïc with Barceloneta – it dates to the 1929 Barcelona International Exposition. Many of the structures built for this are still standing, and can be found in Montjuïc next to the harbour. Meanwhile six of Barcelona’s top art museums, including ones devoted to Picasso and Joan Miró, can be visited on one “ArTicket”.

-Beaches. Barcelona is a great city if you’re after some beach-time. Head to the waterfront from Fort Pienc and you’ll come to Barceloneta, which marks the beginning of a series of golden sandy beaches extending from the harbour out to the suburbs. At Barceloneta you can enjoy two inviting sandy beaches complemented by superb facilities and patrolled by a big team of lifeguards.

-Cuisine. In Barcelona you can choose from a wealth of international cuisines, or take the opportunity to try some specialities from the Catalan region. One of these is the dessert crema catalana, which can be compared to crème brûlée. You could try rustic food like pa amb oli, which is bread with tomato and olive oil, and taste the fabulous wines from Penedès, just outside the city.

-Nightlife. No matter the kind of pace you’d prefer, you’re sure to find a nightspot close to l’Eixample. Particularly close, and ideally suited to hip young visitors is Razzmatazz, a gigantic warehouse with various levels catering to a variety of tastes. Further out is the Mac Arena Mar beach club, in Sant Adrià de Besòs, right on the beach and considered Barcelona’s best summer club.

Weather in Fort Pienc

Barcelona has a mild climate when you compare it to other Mediterranean destinations. Summers are warm, without being parched, while winters still get daily temperatures that hit the mid-teens. There’s also quite a high level of humidity in the city, which means that the vegetation remains green throughout the year. Summer lasts from May to October, with July and August normally getting daytime temperatures in the high-20s. September and October are warm, but a little damper. Get to a Fort Pienc holiday rental in winter, and you’ll encounter some sunny days, with three times more hours of sunshine here than cities in northern Europe.

Travel to Fort Pienc

To get to a Fort Pienc holiday home from abroad you can use Barcelona-El Prat Airport (BCN), which is on the outskirts of the city. It’s one of Europe’s largest airports and has numerous routes to and from Britain, most of which are with low-cost airlines. The R2 suburban railway offers links to the centre of Barcelona, and you can change at Sants to catch the L7 line to Arc de Triomf, which is the stop serving Fort Pienc. There are also bus connections to central Barcelona from the airport.

Clean, well kept and everything you need is at hand. Walking distance to many main attractions in Barcelona. We where lucky the weather in November is just perfect for the walks. All local shops and restaurants very close by. Will stay there again :)

                                                                                                      4 of 5

The interior, however, is thoroughly renovated in a lovely minimalist style but with a well equipped kitchen. Local food shops and tapas bars, metro, buses, and the wonderful Sagrada Familia all within walking distance. The views from the windows are not spectacular but we were not staying for that reason so that was not an issue...it was good to feel we were within part of a genuine Spanish residential area.

Got there very early as our plane was landing early morning. Right away they took our baggage and stored it so we could start our exploration of Barcelona. When we got back later that day we were quickly sent to our apartment with a small ,cozy living kitchen combine between the rooms. Rooms were quite comfortable for the four of us 3 adults and a child Two had 2 single bed pushed together to make a king the other was a double bed There were two bathrooms . Would I stay here again ABSOLUTELY but hopefully for a longer stay.
